Each month we’ll take a look at a special herb, spice, or other ingredient that we use in some of our most popular teas and tisanes. This month, we’ll focus our Tealight (get it?!) on Cinnamon.
Cinnamon didn’t become a popular food additive until the Middle Ages, when it gained its reputation as a cold remedy, a digestive aid, and an aphrodisiac. Cinnamon tea contains eugenol, which is believed to prevent stomach pain or nausea stemming from indigestion and may assist with the breakdown of fats which are otherwise difficult to digest. Eugenol also offers antiseptic benefits and antibacterial properties, and has been linked to arthritis relief and blood sugar regulation.
You can easily brew cinnamon as a tea, or add it to any tea to add a little spice, and garner some of its medicinal benefits. We source our organic cinnamon from the Kerala region of southern Inda and add it to numerous blends that are popular in the winter months.
