Did you know that cinnamon tea has been around for centuries and has a long history of medicinal use? Native Sri Lankans and Indians knew how to make cinnamon tea long ago,  and it’s also been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. The spice was also popular in Ancient Egypt and used to embalm mummies.

In more recent history, cinnamon tea has been used to treat various ailments, including colds, flu, and stomach problems. If you're on the lookout for healthier and more delicious ways to warm up this winter, try making a cup of cinnamon tea.

You can find cinnamon sticks at your local grocery store or purchase them online. If you want to avoid the hassle of brewing your tea, you can also buy pre-made cinnamon tea bags.

Benefits of Cinnamon Tea

  • Cinnamon tea can help to improve digestion and relieve stomach discomfort.
  • It can also help to regulate blood sugar levels, making it a good choice for those with diabetes.
  • This tea may also help to boost cognitive function and memory.
  • Drinking cinnamon tea may also help to reduce inflammation throughout the body.
  • Cinnamon tea is a good source of antioxidants, which can help to protect cells from damage and improve overall health.
  • The tea has a pleasant, warm flavor that you can enjoy hot.

How to Make Cinnamon Tea

Brewing cinnamon tea is a simple process that can be done in just a few minutes. All you need is some water, cinnamon sticks, and honey (optional).

  • Bring the water to a boil. Add the cinnamon tea and let it steep for 5-10 minutes. 
  • Remove the cinnamon sticks or teabag and add honey to taste. 
  • Enjoy your delicious cinnamon tea!

Tasting Notes

When tasting cinnamon tea, pay attention to the overall flavor balance and the individual flavors of sweet, spicy, and warm. Also, take note of the aroma, which should be inviting and pleasant. 

If any of these elements are too strong or overwhelming, it may indicate that you brewed the tea for far too long or used too much cinnamon. The ideal flavor balance will vary depending on your preferences, so feel free to experiment until you find a blend you enjoy.

To enjoy all the wonderful benefits of cinnamon tea, drink it unsweetened. However, if the taste is too strong, feel free to add a bit of honey or sugar. You can also add milk to your tea, decreasing the antioxidant content.

Important Points to Note on How to Make Cinnamon Tea

When shopping for cinnamon tea, look for teas made with 100% pure cinnamon bark. Avoid teas that contain artificial flavoring or sweeteners. If you have concerns about drinking cinnamon tea, talk to your healthcare provider before adding it to your diet.

There’s, perhaps, no better way to draw the full benefits of cinnamon other than make yourself a cup of cinnamon tea. Throw in a few pieces of sliced (fresh) ginger to your next cup of cinnamon tea for an extra health boost.
