With its sweet, spicy, aromatic embrace, cinnamon tea certainly isn't an unattractive addition to your diet, but is it a worthy one?

Reasons to love it:
contains one of the highest antioxidant ratings of all herbs and spices
is anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory
polyphenol content linked to lower blood pressure
shown to aid weight loss and/or management
soothes stomach troubles and aids healthy digestion

As commercially made cinnamon teas may be highly processed or have sugars/additives thrown in, why not make yourself a nourishing home-made mug?

To brew:
Place a stick of cinnamon (broken into large pieces) in a cup of hot water, and leave to steep for 10-15 mins. You can also add a tea bag or lemon/orange slice if desired.
Remove the cinnamon bark (and any additions) and drink warm or leave to cool.
Avoid adding milk if possible as this diminishes the antioxidant value.
