Tahmina is a family-owned tea initiative that works with farmers and women in war-torn countries in the Middle East. They believe that economic development is one of the most powerful sustainable agents of change in war-torn societies.
Every Afghan home welcomes its guests with a cup of tea, the most prized of these being saffron tea. Tahmina's tea collection offers three aromatic blends that incorporate saffron and other herbs and spices.
Saffron Chai: a bold, Assam black tea with Indian Chai-style spices and Afghan saffron. This whole leaf blend has a robust body with multiple layers of flavor, finished by smooth, delicate notes of saffron.
Saffron Rooibos: an herbal tisane of South African Rooibos and honey bush, with lemon, ginger and Afghan saffron. This whole leaf blend has a sweet and earthy body finished off with tangy and complex notes.
Saffron Sencha: steamed China green tea with ginger root, lemongrass, peppermint, and saffron. Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, this whole leaf blend has a vegetal body finished off with refreshing notes.
