What Is Cinnamon Tea?
Cinnamon tea is an herbal tea or tisane made by infusing cinnamon bark in hot water. The cinnamon bark generally comes in the form of cinnamon sticks, but the tea can also be made using crushed bark in cinnamon tea bags. Cinnamon tea can also be brewed using cinnamon powder and cinnamon extract.
This tea is popular around the world where regional variations change the flavor profile of the tea. In Chile, the tea is known as “té con canela” where a cinnamon stick is infused in hot water along with black tea leaves. In Korea, cinnamon tea is called “gyepi-cha” and it is mixed with ginger tea. Korean cinnamon tea uses only bark from the Chinese or Cassia cinnamon—known scientifically as Cinnamomum cassia. The Korean tea is sweetened with honey or sugar and served with a garnish of jujubes.
Cinnamon can be made from a variety of different cinnamon species, but the most common is known as Cinnamomum Verum or Ceylon cinnamon. The tree is native to Sri Lanka and only the inner cinnamon bark is used to brew herbal teas. Another popular favorite is Saigon cinnamon, which is cultivated in Vietnam.
Cinnamon is a woody spice that lends a sweet and savory flavor to tea infusions. The tea emits an incredible aroma that entices the senses and offers a warming effect. The tea is light golden to deep brown in color when brewed. It features hints of honey, resin, and spice from the first sip to the last drop.
