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.

Let us know in the comments section whether you've jumped aboard the cinnamon tea bandwagon!
