Té de Canela


Cinnamon is believed to have a lot of health benefits – from boosting the immune system, aiding digestion, and lowering blood sugar to relieving arthritis, fighting bacterial infections and promoting brain function. I’m not a doctor and can’t say for sure if any of this is true, but it’s an easy and refreshing drink when chilled and served over ice.

Té de Canela


2 cinnamon sticks
2 cups of water
3 tablespoons white table sugar


Bring ingredients to a boil then lower to a simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Pour through a sieve and serve over ice. Makes two to three glasses.

Note: Cinnamon has been shown to cause medical problems for some people. Talk to your doctor before self-medicating or consuming cinnamon in large quantities or for an extended period of time.

  1. Another of your “recipe” (can it be a recipe for a drink?) I need to try! We like the same flavours apparently.

    • I think it can be recipe for a drink LOL, sure, why not? … This one is super easy – just be careful not to drink too much. I believe my mother-in-law used to drink this for constipation, so people definitely use it for medicinal properties and not always just to enjoy!

  2. I try to incorporate a little cinnamon in my drinks, smoothies and food recipes but it never occurred to me to try it as a tea. – duh – I will be trying this. :) Thx for the share!

  3. we make agua de jamaica in a coffee brewer, i am thinking how i can make this the same way….

  4. This is awesome! I never thought of making cinnamon tea! I make a yogi tea that’s really good and it contains cinnamon, but I never thought of making it on it’s own.
