5 Ways to Drink Cinnamon Tea

· June 12, 2017
There are many ways to drink cinnamon tea and take advantage of all its benefits, aside from the standard cup of hot tea. Learn all about them in this article!

Drinking cinnamon tea helps detox the body, lower blood sugar, lose weight, and regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle.

It’s also beneficial for alleviating indigestion because it’s rich in magnesium, iron, calcium, fiber, and vitamins C and B1.

Cinnamon also has relaxing properties. Its strong aroma is one of the best options when choosing a scent for your home, office, or car.

Drinking cinnamon tea, an excellent choice

The best way to get the benefits of cinnamon is through a tea. This is because during the boiling process, cinnamon releases its health benefits.

Always drinking the same cinnamon tea can be boring, however. That’s why today we’ve compiled some of the best recipes for cinnamon tea, each one with a different flavor.

1. Cold cinnamon tea

This cinnamon tea option is perfect for hot summer days. To take advantage of the benefits we described above, you can drink a glass of this tea after lunch, as a snack, or after dinner.
