Sara Saffron Highest Grade A+, 100% Authentic Saffron Threads, Delicious and costly.
Being the most expensive spice in the world, this is my first encounter with it, so I didn't know what to expect in flavour, and definitely don't know how to distinguish good saffron. That said, after looking through some recipes, I gave it a shot to try cooking with it and the results were fabulous. The food had a nice fragrance to it. I didn't use a lot as I wasn't sure, and that turns out to be great, as the mellow flavour was very nice.I've not tried to use this in baking, but I assume that would work out great as well since the flavour is there and will definitely enhance the likes of bread and other baked goods.£5.95 isn't cheap for a single gram of the most expensive spice, but it is definitely worth trying.Each strand is intact, which I guess is a good sign of quality. There are cheaper variations when looking only, but I don't know if they can compare in quality, so I'm happy with this. It's better to get good quality if you're paying the price so that you can enjoy, so I would say this was a good experience.
