Cinnamon tea blends: flavor highlights

Cinnamon spiced tea brings the warm, welcoming and well-loved goodness of cinnamon into your daily brew. Spicy and sweet all at once, cinnamon works equally well with strong Ceylon black teas, earthy pu-erhs, refreshing oolongs, and in caffeine-free herbal blends with licorice root, orange peel, ginger, rosehips, cloves, and plenty more. Cinnamon is added to teas and tisanes either as whole or ground cinnamon bark, or as natural cinnamon flavoring.

A little history

Cinnamon is a key ingredient in Masala Chai, a strong, spicy black tea with Indian origins. The warming spices in masala chai (cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, ginger, and more) have been traditionally used to treat colds and sore throats, relieve headaches and fight fevers.

Tasting notes

Cinnamon can add multiple dimensions to black tea. In the company of fennel or licorice root, it makes a full-bodied black tea “fragrant and delicate”. When blended with pepper, it can enable the same black tea to “wake up your taste buds”. Generally speaking, cinnamon spiced teas make for excellent winter brews, their “festive, holiday feel” capturing the essence of “Christmas in a cup”. Cinnamon flavored matcha teas also tend to be popular among beginners, the cinnamon (along with fruit additives) “hiding the strong green tea taste of matcha”. The warming, autumnal flavors of cinnamon spiced teas are “complementary to anything sweet”. They can generally be consumed without sweeteners, thus serving as “great substitutes for fattening desserts”.

Tea tips

Try pairing the spicy sweetness of cinnamon with fruity flavors such as apple, peach or fig. If you prefer more invigorating, warming teas, consider cinnamon black tea blends containing cardamom, ginger, or pepper. Cinnamon spiced tea will also let you avoid sugar or sweeteners, on account of its naturally sweet taste. You can enhance the sweet, welcoming notes of cinnamon by adding a splash of milk to your tea.
