1.5 cups water
One Cinnamon Stick
Place water into pot or glass kettle
Add Cinnamon Stick
Cinnamon sticks should be slow boiled to extract the best flavor. Bring the water to a slow boil in a small pot or stove top kettle. To do this, set the heat setting to medium low so it boils slowly. This usually takes about 15-25 minutes.
The Cinnamon is actually released from the stick as it cools. When the water starts bubbling remove from heat and let it cool for 15 minutes
As the water cools you will see the the Cinnamon will start to release from the Cinnamon stick and the water will change to a deep redish brown.
Strain the tea through a fine strainer into a cup.
You may have to reheat the tea before serving and feel free to add a Cinnamon stick for "the look". Sip and feel good!
