Through our partnership with Tahmina, your gift empowers women and farmers in rural Afghanistan.

Afghanistan has an unemployment rate of over 40%, and with over 40 years of war, has experienced long periods of economic instability. Tahmina is a women of color-owned tea brand offering organic wellness teas and ethically sourced Afghan saffron. Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world and is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. In Afghanistan, women perform 80% of saffron production—an incredible economic opportunity for women in a country where only 19% of females participate in the workforce. In the midst of the crisis in Afghanistan, all proceeds of sales will be donated to on-the-ground relief efforts.

Whole threads of pure saffron, handpicked from the fields of northwestern Afghanistan. With an average ISO color reading of 250 (and some as high as 280), Tahmina’s selection is some of the highest quality and most potent saffron you’ll ever find. 

Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, saffron has been used in many medicinal traditions for depression/anxiety, immunity, acne, digestion, PMS, high blood pressure, and more. 

Each tin contains 1 gram of Grade 1 Saffron, according to ISO Standard 3632. Organically grown, non-GMO, vegan. Our tins are packaged with care and finished off with a sealed label to ensure optimal freshness.
