Cinnamon is showing up in more places than just our kitchens. Drug and Health Food stores are sporting jars of Cinnamon pills and boxes of Cinnamon Tea.
Evidence continues to build of its medicinal properties. It is suggested to boost brain function-particularly with respect to memory; lower cholesterol; and control blood sugar levels.
Drinking cinnamon stick tea would be an excellant way to reap the health benefits from the bark of this tropical evergreen tree.

Break 1 cinnamon stick into 2 or 3 pieces and place in a teapot. Bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil, starting with cold water. (Never reheat water that has been boiled as this will make the tea taste flat.) Pour the boiling water over the cinnamon in teapot and cover with lid. Allow to steep for 10 full minutes.
Pour into your favorite tea cup and add a smidgeon of honey and a twist of lemon.
