Cinnamon Tea Ingredients
Cinnamon Sticks – I recommend buying organic cinnamon sticks for this tea. Don’t use ground cinnamon as it won’t create the right flavor as a cinnamon would. Plus you will have pieces of the cinnamon floating in the drink.
Water – I do recommend using filtered water as it is going to make sure you have a pure delicious hot water that will help allow for the best flavor of tea.
How to Make Cinnamon Tea
Step 1: Add the cinnamon sticks into the water in a pot and bring to a boil. Once it boils, you will reduce the heat and simmer.
Step 2: You will want to simmer the tea for 15 minutes. This is going to help add rich flavor.
Step 3: Remove the cinnamon sticks. Then strain the tea through a fine mesh strainer. Then serve up your tea.

Not sure how to serve up your cup of cinnamon tea? Here are some ways to dress up your tea. Serve with your favorite coffee creamer, fresh lemon juice, orange peel, sweet cloves, or even just some coconut milk. Just add what you want to compliment the cinnamon flavor of the tea. I like to froth coconut milk creamer and top this cinnamon tea with the whipped cream and cinnamon powder for garnish. I call this a cinnamon tea latte and it’s delicious!
Storing Leftover Tea
If you do not drink all your tea right away, you can store the tea in the fridge. Place in a sealed container and then you can warm up in the microwave or back on the stovetop for a warm tea.
