Cinnamon is a spice obtained from the inner bark of a small evergreen tree. The bark is peeled and laid out in the sun where it curls into cinnamon sticks. We have cut high quality cinnamon sticks into pieces perfect to be used either as a delicious tisane or to be used as an ingredient to create your own blend.
Cinnamon is a warming spice with a strong smell and upon being brewed, yields a reddish brown infusion with a sweet and woody taste.
It is a very powerful antioxidant. Studies show that its active component, Cinnamaldehyde, has anti inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Some studies have also shown that Cinnamon is good for blood sugar control.
