Product Name:
Pure Iranian Saffron - Long Threads
Description:

The golden queen.

Miasa is exclusively the finest pure Sargol saffron. Sargol is a Persian expression meaning - from the head of the flower. As the name indicates, only the best part of a saffron flower, the uppermost tip of its stigma, is used.

Saffron consists of the fine pistils of Crocus sativus, a crocus plant. This plant can only be cultivated once a year through painstaking manual labour. The crimson threads in the pale purple flowers have to be picked within a tight timeframe before sunrise as that is when the flowers open. It takes around 150,000 to 200,000 flowers to get a kilogram of saffron.

Provenance / origin:
Khorasan – Iran
