Cinnamon Delight- Chilled Spicy Tea

After a spicy, rich lunch, one just naturally craves for some cool-me-down drink. 

I love this refreshing and invigorating drink both hot and cold, depending on the season. But with 100F outside, you can guess my preference.

  • 4.5 cups water
  • 4 black tea bags
  • 1 inch piece ginger, peeled and grated
  • 3 small sticks cinnamon,  ground
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (optional)
  • ice (optional)
  1. In a medium-sized pot, bring water to boil. Add ginger and cinnamon and simmer for 5 minutes. 
  2. Add the tea bags and steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags.
  3. Stir in  sugar until fully dissolved. Let cool, and then transfer to the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours.
  4. When ready to serve, strain and divide into individual glasses and garnish with cinnamon sticks. Serve with ice if you prefer the long, lingering chill.
