Cinnamon Tea Recipe

Ingredients

  • liquid stevia extract (optional)

Instructions

Add water in a pot and break the cinnamon stick inside the pot. When the water starts to boil, set the heat to low and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Your tea is now ready! Easy, right?

Because the cinnamon sticks already taste sweet, there is no need for you to add more sugar. Plus, cinnamon has natural sweet flavors that can give you all the sweetness you need.

However, if you want to add more sweetness to your drink, liquid stevia extract will do the trick.

Moreover, there is a way to keep your tea warm or add one more cup to the pot. You can leave the cinnamon to soak in the water and add a little water at a time. After you have used all the water, let it simmer for 5 minutes so you can drink again.

You can keep doing this until you have used up your entire cinnamon stick.
