Not worth it

Does it have any taste? Can't really taste it, can just see the colour

Possibly Fake Saffron mixed with real

Saffron is the most expensive food you can buy, way more than truffles or caviar, and therefore there's a lot of fake saffron on the market so you have to be careful about what you buy and where. After researching this online I found out that real Saffron should be trumpet shaped being more bulbous at one end and getting finer to the end with a yellowish tip. I also found out that a strand of real saffron shouldn't go white when soaked in water and that the water should colour gradually over about 10 minutes. I brought this thinking surely no-one would risk putting fake saffron in a Waitrose product. Why risk losing such a big customer? However, although some of the strands are trumpet shaped and have stayed the same colour after soaking most are not trumpet shaped and are just fine strands and after soaking in water most of them went white. I did also think the water did colour up very quickly when I added the water. So I think this may possibly be a combination of real and fake. I may be wrong as I am not an expert and only found this information by looking it up online. I would be interested to hear what other people may know.

No worries

As much saffron as you'd expect for the price, although I'd rather pay more and get more. You've got enough for maybe three paellas here. Tastes fine.

Good quality saffron

Yes, it's expensive, but this is a good quality ingredient so there is no need to use a lot. If you can't get your saffron from a Spanish supermarket, then this is the next best option.

read the label carefully

Ermm, it really is only just a few strands of saffron... I'd only read the title, not the product description, and was rather taken aback when I saw the actual contents... I'm sure the quality is very good, but the contents is definitely not what I expected...
