Ingredients

  • 1 cinnamon stick or
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 8 oz boiling water
  • 1 cup milk optional
  • 1 tsp honey/sugar optional

Instructions

  • To make cinnamon tea, boil water and add a cinnamon stick or ground cinnamon to it. Allow the cinnamon to steep for 8-10 minutes. 
  • If you're using a cinnamon stick, you should remove it. Don't throw the stick away, as you can use it to make another cup of tea. 
  • You can add a sweetener of your choice and milk if you want to. Honey goes well with cinnamon. However, some people don't like to put a sweetener to their tea as cinnamon has a natural sweetness to it.

Notes

You can add other ingredients like ginger, apples, lime, turmeric or black pepper to enhance the flavor. You can also use black tea (either regular or decaffeinated). Instead of black tea, you can use rooibos or honeybush tea as well. If you would like to add milk to your cinnamon tea, be very careful as it can curdle.
