Green Tea 1 tsp
Cinnamon 1/2 tsp powdered or 1 stick
Saffron a pinch
Sugar to taste
Water 2 1/2 cups
Coarsely chop the Almonds. Using the back of a wooden spoon, lightly crush the cardamom, cloves and cinnamon stick, if using.
Place the water, crushed cardamom, cloves and cinnamon in a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and gently boil the water for about 5 minutes. Then add the green tea. Immediately turn off the heat. Let the tea steep in the water for about 2 minutes. Stir in sugar. Strain the tea.
To serve, divide the walnuts and saffron and place in tea cups or mugs. Pour tea over the saffron and Almonds pieces.
