Friday is here again! Yes, we made it through the week!

And I have brought something warm to savor on this HAPPY and cold day. Or shall I say, it’s kind of BETTER than all the warm drinks, because it has some excellent healing properties.

Now, it’s your time to guess what that warm drink could be, which is also super delicious and full of good health.

Any speculations? Alright, I can tell you the name of this magical drink. The drink is ‘Spiced Kesar Chai (Spiced Saffron Tea)’.

Oh, I LOVE tea. Basically, I love the smell of tea and coffee. Yes, I love both. As a matter of fact, it’s hard to decide which one I love the most — tea or coffee. So let’s say I love them equally. And I think that’s a fair deal to give them both an equal share of likeness, because they both are unique, exclusive and best in their own terms.

It’s highly unlikely for me to say NO to a cup full of Indian tea. And it’s also very rare when I say No to hot coffee. Yeah, I am always in that dilemma of which one is my favorite. Well, you can blame my Dad for loving tea and Mom for loving coffee. So I think loving them both equally is in my roots.

My Dad’s morning always starts with a cup of Indian tea and my Mom’s day starts with a hot coffee. Yup, and that means they both drink a cup or two (tea/coffee) during the morning hours.

My Dad is okay if he skips his tea by some reason, but my Mom can never skip her joe, and if she does, she gets headache. Seriously, coffee works as a medicine for her. It really helps her throughout the day.

On the other hand my Dad drinks coffee sometimes, but my has Mom never drinks tea. She never tasted the tea — not even a single sip. Would you believe that my Mom never had tea in her life. I don’t know why the word ‘TEA’ does not have a place in her dictionary. No one could convince her to try a single sip of tea till today.

My Mom is a flexible lady in general, but if I have to pick up one thing in which my Mom is so rigid. This would be it  — not drinking any kind of tea. No matter what’s flavor of tea, but if there is ‘tea’ involved in the name she would never touch that mug.

But apart from this not drinking tea habit, she has got a wonderful gift. She makes awesome tea. Yes, she makes one of the best teas I have ever had. And that makes her so special. I know I have told you this before, but whenever I talk about the best tea maker, my Mom takes the top spot. 🙂

So the other day when it was super cold and snowy (-28°C — yeah that’s a minus sign in front), and I was outside for about an hour, that really made me dream for some real nice and hot drink. A hot drink which can give me warmth inside out. And the first thought of that drink was ‘Saffron tea’. Without any further delays, as soon I got home, I made it and had my first sip.

Oh! it was so comfy and relaxing. It was happening — I was having one of the most needed and most amazing drinks which I truly deserved after staying in such a harsh weather. Meanwhile Abhishek also reached home, and he was cold too. So naturally he also wanted something warm to drink. Then I asked him about some Saffron tea, and he promptly replied: “Wow!  A good deed needs no permission.”

And this time I thought why not making a video, so you all can enjoy this nice and tasty hot drink with us. And that’s why I made a video about this recipe.

This tea is awesome and a perfect warm and cozy winter treat which is ready in about 10 minutes – it’s just awesome for a Friday treat for sure!

So everyone, meet my family’s favourite Spiced Kesar Chai aka Spiced Saffron Tea.

It’s saffron-y, it’s so nice and it’s holistic. Yes, it’s very holistic, because whenever there is saffron involved things should be either holistic or magistic. It’s tea time — it’s cozy time!

A basic Chai/Tea is a sweet, spiced and traditional Indian drink prepared with tea-leaves and milk. I have already wrote about a variety of Indian teas here.
