Cinnamon Tea

This cinnamon tea–a warming, cozy drink–is easy, simple, and always welcome. Just steep cinnamon sticks in simmering water, pour, add a bit of your favorite sweetener, and you’re set.

Cinnamon Bark Tea

Simple is better. Cliche? Perhaps. True? Undoubtedly. This simple yet lovely cinnamon tea is the perfect example of it. All you need are cinnamon sticks and, if you’ve got any sort of sweet tooth, a touch of sugar or other sweetener. That’s all that’s required for this soothing sipper that’s equally satisfying winter or summer.–Renee Schettler Rossi
