Cinnamon Tea Recipe

Cinnamon is one of the oldest known spices. It has a delicious, naturally sweet flavor that many people love.

Cinnamon has been used in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda for a variety of health conditions from indigestion to colds. It's also believed to have other health benefits.

Although many people like to simply sprinkle cinnamon on oatmeal or apple slices, having cinnamon in tea is another option. You can find cinnamon in chai tea, or you can make your own cinnamon tea using this recipe.

1. Place the cinnamon stick in a cup.

2. Add the boiling water and steep covered for 10 minutes.

Easy Cinnamon Tea, Member sopranojessi

I am a Cinnamon lover! Now here's an easy tip. Using a coffee maker, put in a stick or two of cinnamon in a clean filter. I throw in Cloves, Anise, & some Nutmeg too. I add 2 more sticks in the coffee pot as well. I add some sugar & then pour in a pitcher with the cinnamon sticks. Stick in fridge. I like Iced Cinnamon Tea.
