When you’re after a beverage that’s both tasty and caffeine-free, tea with the best Ceylon cinnamon sticks is the ideal choice. While it takes a little time to prepare, you’ll know that the effort was well worth it when you taste it for the first time.

It’s a drink that’s also free of sugar but surprisingly sweet at the same time. As such, it’s a treat that’s about as healthy as it could be, offering a full-bodied taste that has more than a hint of citrus.

Cinnamon Helps the Mind & Body

Tea with the best Ceylon cinnamon sticks represents a great alternative to caffeinated drinks due to the properties of cinnamon. Studies have shown that it helps to boost concentration, memory and alertness, as well as being great for aching joints.

A single cup has around 35% of your daily recommended intake of manganese - a vital element for healthy bones and joints.

So, How Long Does it Take to Brew a Cup?

Well, preparation takes just a couple of minutes and all you’ll need in terms of ingredients is 1½ cups of water and a single 3” Ceylon cinnamon stick. That said, your total brewing time will be around 45 minutes, but believe us when we say it’s well worth the wait.

The first step to a tasty cup of tea with the best Ceylon cinnamon sticks is to put your 1½ cups of water into a teapot or glass kettle. Then add your cinnamon stick after breaking it up into smaller pieces. It’s not an entirely necessary step, but it will help the flavors to percolate better.

Steeping Allows All the Flavor to Come Out

Cinnamon sticks have to be boiled slowly for around 20 minutes and you’ll know when you’re close to finishing, as the water will turn a pale yellow color. Once the water has reached boiling point, you should take it off the heat and allow it to cool and steep for around 15-20 minutes.

This process will then turn the tea from a pale yellow to a golden red. That’s when you’ll know it’s time to decant and enjoy! However, you will need to pass it through a fine strainer to remove any small pieces of cinnamon.

In case you’re wondering, we start off with 1½ cups of water to account for the evaporation that occurs as you’re brewing. By the end, you’ll have the perfect amount to fill a standard mug.
