As most know Cinnamon is good for us. They are selling Cinnamon Capsules now for a variety of ailments. Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices, I love the smell and taste of it. I'm not a big coffee drinker so this Hot Cinnamon Tea is much more tasty to me. I like being able to make it ahead of time if necessary.
