Did you know that cinnamon is useful for something other than the cinnamon challenge?
My mother bought a giant container of cinnamon at Costco a week or so ago, and today she was puttering around the kitchen and pouring a spoonful of cinnamon. So I laughed and asked her if she was doing the cinnamon challenge… I had to show her a video of it before she got what I was saying. And then told me that it wasn’t funny (oh… mama, but it is!!). She also told me, before giving me a dirty look about finding people choking on cinnamon funny, that cinnamon has tons of health benefits and she was taking a little teaspoon of it every day before it helps with inflammation and gastrointestinal issues. Who knew?! (Health benefit-y stuff here)
Anyway – I haven’t been feeling so hot since that flu shot so I’ve been wandering around the house whining about feeling like “sheeeeet.” So my mom handed me a mug and pointed at the kettle before disappearing to do work. In light of our conversation about cinnamon, I dropped a teaspoon of cinnamon and some honey into the cup and poured some boiling water over it.
Guess what? The tea itself looks like mud, but it is delicious! It’s a little spicy, a little sweet, and it tastes yum!
It’s not a recipe people…. but here you go
1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp good honey, 1 cup of boiling water. Stir. Drink. Feel better.
(This is not my picture. I found it on google images. It’s pretty. I picked it. Done)
What do you guys do with cinnamon? Please say cinnamon rolls. I love cinnamon rolls…
I too enjoy some cinnamon in my tea. Delicious.
It is delicious, isn’t it?! Thanks for visiting, Colline!
Hmm…now I need some cinnamon. Maybe this will keep me from buying expensive teas. hehe. 🙂
haha! I have the same problem, I always want fancy and new tea! but this is a great, and cheap alternative!
Mmm. So I’m definitely drinking this right now and how did I never hear about making tea like this before?? Luckily, I had some cinnamon in my cabinet. I did however buy two boxes of tea today because I have a cold and well, drinking only one kind of tea is just not going to cut it.
I definitely didn’t know about it… but apparently it’s quite common! Learn something new every day!
