To make the tea...

  1. If you are using a cinnamon stick, break it into pieces and add it to your cup. Otherwise, add the ground cinnamon to your cup.
  2. Add boiling water.
  3. Let your cinnamon tea steep for 8 to 10 minutes, and then, if you're using a cinnamon stick, remove the pieces.
  4. Optional - Add the teabag or loose tea (in an infuser, if you're not using an infuser mug), and steep the tea another couple of minutes.
  5. Optional - Add extras like sweetener or warm milk, if you wish (a teaspoon of natural or organic honey is a healthy, delicious addition to cinnamon tea). Or, if you need a special treat, add a slice of orange and then top with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon powder.
  6. Enjoy with a good friend or a good book! :)

A cinnamon stick can make more than one cup of this recipe, depending on how strong you like your tea. And don't be afraid to combine cinnamon with other teas, herbs, or spices - Victoria Zak, in her delightful book, '20,000 Secrets of Tea,' refers to cinnamon as "A Spice for Blends," and this amazing spice does combine beautifully with almost any other flavor!

This recipe increases very well, too. A great way to make a big pot of cinnamon tea with cinnamon sticks is with a French Press (this is especially effective if you're adding another favorite loose tea or two to your cinnamon tea).

A French Press provides plenty of room for the delicious tea to steep properly and, when you're ready to stop brewing your tea, simply plunge the fine strainer and pour up and enjoy the perfect cup of tea! 

Why not brew up a big pot of cinnamon tea on a chilly night? Whether you share your tea with a friend or enjoy the entire pot yourself in front of the fire, cinnamon tea's fragrant aroma and spicy taste will warm up you and your home! 

With its soothing taste and aroma and many health benefits, cinnamon is a wonderful addition to almost any tea. To enjoy the spice on its own, try the simple, versatile recipe above.
