This tea is rich and soothing. It does take a while to make, so plan ahead and have a pitcher in the fridge ready when you need to sit back and relax. I experimented a lot with this recipe. The problem is that not all cinnamon sticks are the same size. So I recommend you chose about the same number of skinny sticks as the bigger ones when brewing the tea.
7 1/2 cups water
10 Ceylon cinnamon sticks, 3 inches long, try to use an equal mix of thin and bigger sticks,
Place cinnamon sticks and water into a pot and bring to a boil
Reduce heat , cover and simmer for 25 minutes.
Allow to cool.
Transfer liquid and cinnamon sticks to a pitcher and store in the fridge.
Reheat in the microwave to desired temperature.
Often times I make this tea in the morning and we drink it after supper or it sits in the fridge overnight. The flavour is particular nice when it has had the chance to steep overnight.
Try and use Ceylon Cinnamon whenever possible.
