Fall is coming which means cooler crisp air. Making this tea while it’s grey and stormy outside is the perfect pick me up. It’s natural and caffeine free! Plus it makes your home smell amazing while it’s cooking. It’s a win-win situation if you ask me!
1. In a 2-quart sauce pot add your filtered water and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil.
2. Turn down heat to medium (or until you have a steady simmer) and simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Remove cinnamon sticks from the water but don’t discard them! Save them for one more use. I was able to make this recipe twice (so 8 servings total) with my two sticks. The second time, I simmered for 15 minutes to extract the last bit of cinnamon flavor out.
4. Pour hot cinnamon water carefully into 4 mugs. Mix in 1 ounce of almond milk and honey to taste. I added 2 teaspoons of honey to our mugs for a subtly sweet flavor. You are welcome to add more, less, or none at all if you’re so inclined!
- Making this tea will infuse your whole house with the most wonderful scent!
- You want your water to turn an amber color, almost like a dark beer.
- You can make this recipe, use what you want and store the rest in an airtight container (with cinnamon sticks included) in your refrigerator. When you want more tea, simply add whole thing to pot, dilute with maybe a 1/2 cup more water and heat up!
Perfect for a cold winter’s night!
