Yes. All types of saffron are derived from a single flower known as saffron pericarp. This stems from the Cattail or Catwort plant, which grows in eastern Asia and Europe (although the word is often used interchangeably with a variety of plants).
This plant produces an oleoresin which helps protect saffron from dryness, which is necessary to prevent the saffron from wilting.
Why did I buy it?
Why? Well, I’m not a fan of the taste of saffron, but I like the scent. This is because saffron is rich in the aroma of citrus, so it provides a nice balance for a citrus scent. Also, there are many other interesting herbal/perfume scents out there, including rosemary, myrrh, and cinnamon.
How long does it last?
For an average sized piece of tea leaf (about a fist or more size), it should last about a year before fading (depending on how often you water).
Can I use a different type of tea?
Yes. There are lots of ways to use saffron, from traditional use of saffron flowers, which are used to perfume food for centuries, to floral perfumes, or even as a replacement for vanilla in certain desserts.
I am unsure if my saffron is legal!
You could have done something illegal (bought or grown it illegally in someone else’s home). You could have sold it without the proper licensing.
How can I find out if it’s legal before I buy it?
Well, there are basically two ways to find out, and both require either a license or at least some sort of permit:
Using a license (it’s hard to get a license for anything, but it’s fairly easy to get one for tea. Some types of tea are licensed, for example, some types of coffee).
(it’s hard to get a license for anything, but it’s fairly easy to get one for tea. Some types of tea are licensed, for example, some types of coffee). Looking up the “use” of each type of tea to determine if it’s legal.
The first is easily available on the Internet. The second requires visiting your local government agency, and requesting a license for each type of tea you want to use to determine its legality. You’ll have to mail in
