How to Make Cinnamon Stick Tea

by Cinnamon Vogue

Supplies

  • 1 Ceylon Cinnamon Stick
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar (optional)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Add fresh cold water and drop 1 Ceylon Cinnamon stick (3 inch stick) into the pot.

    Step 2

    Use medium low heat. Boiling slowly is best for releasing all the essential benefits of Ceylon Cinnamon.

    Step 3

    It will look like this for near 15 minutes. You start to doubt if it will make any tea.

    Step 4

    Then Voila! Slowly the cinnamon starts to get release. It looks like a muddy brown. When it starts to boil like this switch off and let sit on the stove top.

    Step 5

    Still a pale yellow. You need to let it sit for 15-20minutes. As the temperature drops, the Cinnamon stick will suddenly release all that is good about Ceylon Cinnamon, changing the color to a red.

    Step 6

    There you have it. The bold red of well brewed Cinnamon stick Tea. Now you will have to reheat before serving.

    Step 7

    This is how Cinnamon Stick Tea should look like. A robust red color.

    Step 8

    You can add some sugar. But we prefer no sugar but a slice of cake. Ceylon Cinnamon Stick Tea is mild yet has a robust clean taste that is almost sweet with hints of Citrus. Zero sugar.

    Step 9

    Serve with some quiche. A visual and taste delight with the heady aroma of Ceylon Cinnamon with hints of Citrus.
