	It was John who mentioned it first:
	"I've discovered Saffron Tea", he said.
	And was quite determined that it should be "subtle".

	"Tea is black", he added, "just as wine is red."
	I couldn't agree more.

	Patty came in with a care package with IRAN stamped
	all over it:
	bags of prepared Saffron tea, 250 grams of Isfahani
	Mirzapore exported 
	directly from EEEERAAAAN, 
	green cardamom barely dried, and a package of saffron
	you can't buy this side
	of the Atlantic.

	Saffron, the other gold.

	I poured the water in the pot, added the tea, the pods
	and the magic powder, and drank three heavenly cups.
