In addition to the beneficial effects on health, carefully harvested red saffron, Krocus Kozanis, its distinctive taste and aroma, will take you with one cup of tea to the rich and native land from which it comes – Krokos village in Greece.
The most famous Greek saffron grows in Kozani, in northern Greece, and gives its name to the country of origin, the village of Krokos. A unique flower with a beautiful story to tell.
Red saffron blooms only once a year, every October, for barely two weeks, creating a purple carpet as far as the eye can see. The flowers are picked daily, immediately after the morning dew evaporates, and the antioxidants of saffron are at their peak. After all the flowers have been collected, the fields look empty, but by dawn, Krokos is blooming again, covering the fields with beautiful purple flowers.
The petals are manually separated from the saffron pestle and anther, immediately after picking, followed by the drying process.
One hundred and fifty thousand flowers that the villagers hand-picked during the harvest give only one kilogram of saffron petals. This data explains why saffron is sometimes more valuable than gold itself.
