This simple cinnamon tea recipe is the perfect choice when you're craving the calming ritual and delightful flavor of making tea from scratch.
While teabags are convenient, sometimes there is nothing like making your own tea from fresh or dried herbs or spices you have on hand. Chock-full of benefits, aromatic cinnamon tea is a warming, spicy beverage that is quick and rewarding to make and provides a satisfying burst of flavor.
This from-scratch cinnamon tea recipe can be made with ground cinnamon or a cinnamon stick. Try an infuser mug for brewing cinnamon stick tea so you can easily remove and reuse the cinnamon stick pieces.
Depending on how strong you like your tea, a cinnamon stick may make more than one cup of this recipe. And, when you're making tea, 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 certainly does combine beautifully with almost any flavor you can imagine.

This cinnamon tea recipe increases very well. 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 the cinnamon tea).
A French Press provides plenty of room for the delicious tea to steep properly and, when the tea has finished brewing, simply plunge the fine strainer and pour up the tea. Be sure to wrap the French press in a pretty tea cozy to keep the tea nice and hot while it steeps, and to keep any extra tea warm until you're ready to enjoy another cup.
