cinnamonIn the Middle Ages, having cinnamon in one's home was a status symbol for Europe's elite. A combination of spicy cinnamon with bright, full Ceylon black tea, having our Cinnamon Black tea in your cabinet today is equally as prestigious. Very warm and high cinnamon flavor, with a clean, richly aromatic freshness. Spicy, crisp finish. Great blended with other teas, too!
Steep at 212° for 3 minutes.
ingredients & lore
blended with black tea, cinnamon bark and natural cinnamon flavor
Cinnamon was among the spices whose trade funded the glories of Venice. Earlier in civilization, Egyptians used it for embalming (cinnamon has antibacterial properties) and Rome imported vast quantities of it, oddly enough to flavor wine, but not food. Using cinnamon as cooking spice became common during the Middle Ages, when it also gained a reputation as a digestive, an aphrodisiac, and a cold remedy. Nowadays, cinnamon is mainly used to flavor desserts, as well as a companion to coffee and tea.
