Did you know one of the most easy-to-find spices makes a body-transforming tea? Cinnamon tea is a sweet, festive drink with a gentle spicy kick. That warming kick isn’t just a mood-booster. It’s a fat-burning engine getting started!


Cinnamon tea is a classic holiday drink. It fills a home with the warming scent of sweet spice. But you can enjoy cinnamon tea all year long for the weight-loss benefits and pure pleasure.

I love cinnamon tea because it satisfies my sweet tooth while reducing fat storage, according to some research! Sometimes I’ll add a little unsweetened almond milk to make a creamier version, too.

How Much Cinnamon Tea and When?

According to the US Department of Health, it’s safe to consume small amounts of cinnamon every day. If you have specific dietary restrictions, like diabetes or allergies, you should be more cautious about using larger amounts of cinnamon or concentrated cinnamon oil.

Enjoying a cup or two of cinnamon tea a day is perfectly safe.

It’s caffeine-free, so you can have it in the morning, as an afternoon treat, or even at night. If you have trouble sleeping when you drink it at night, just enjoy it earlier in the day.

Ask Your Doctor — Is Cinnamon Tea Good for YOU?

For many people, cinnamon tea is a delicious and safe healthy treat. BUT it does contain a compound that can be toxic at very high doses.

Talk to your doctor about drinking cinnamon tea if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, have a heart condition, ulcers or are taking antibiotics.
