Yield: 8 cups of iced tea
Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. (Reserve 2 cups of cool water.)
In a small dish, steep saffron threads in 2-3 tablespoons of hot water.
Use the remaining hot water to steep the tea bags for 3 minutes.
Remove tea bags, add ice cubes and cool water. Add saffron infused water and rose water.
Serve over ice and enjoy.
If you are adding sugar to this recipe, add it to the hot tea. Sugar dissolves best in warm liquids. Ten you can chill it with ice and cool water.
