Does Cinnamon Black Tea Have Caffeine?

Our Loose Leaf Cinnamon Tea belongs to a family of around sixty plants that contain caffeine. While the cinnamon added to it is void of the stimulant, the Tea leaves themselves have a considerable amount.

Therefore, unless you choose a Decaf Tea, you’ll find about 45-mg of caffeine per 8-oz serving. That is probably more than enough to get you out of bed in the morning. But where did its story begin? 

The Curious Story Behind Cinnamon in Black Tea

People have used cinnamon since at least 2,000 BCE. Most famously, the ancient Egyptians used it as a perfuming agent during the embalming process of late Pharaohs.

The Old Testament of the Bible likewise references the ingredient as anointing oil. It eventually arrived in Europe through Arab merchants, many of whom were said to tell elaborate and unfounded tales to justify its exorbitant price. 

One such tale dates back to the 5th century BCE. It involves large birds carrying cinnamon sticks to their nests perched on mountains - beyond anyone’s reach. For traders to obtain the spice, individuals placed ox meat on the ground to tempt the creatures.

The birds would then return home with the food, the weight of which caused the nests to collapse and the spice tumbling down with them. Of course, it isn’t true! 

How to Make Cinnamon Black Tea

  1. Add Loose Leaf Cinnamon Tea to a Tea Filter or Infuser.

  2. Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup, ready for brewing.

  3. Pour hot water at temperatures of 100°C over the Tea.

  4. Allow it to steep for 3-5 minutes for the finest flavour. 

How to Serve: Best served without additions. Alternatively, consider honey or lemon. 

Tasting Notes: Imparts a full-bodied malty flavour with sweet and spicy undertones. 

Cinnamon Black Tea Nutrition Facts

The nutritional value of Black Cinnamon Tea is twofold. The spice itself boasts a remarkable abundance of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and Vitamin A. Meanwhile, Black Tea has the likes of Vitamins B-2, B-5, B-9 and D, as well as sodium and manganese.

These constituents combined can support your health and wellbeing in a vast multitude of ways. But how, exactly, does it work? 

Cinnamon Black Tea Benefits

The benefits of Cinnamon Black Tea come about on a molecular level first and foremost. The nutrients mentioned above combat and even neutralise free radicals in the body, which are unpaired electrons introduced through oxidative stress.

When left unchecked, oxidative stress increases the risk of developing several chronic conditions. However, Cinnamon Black Tea counters the risks. 

Black Tea and Cinnamon Weight Loss Potential

And that’s not all on offer. Indeed, drinking Cinnamon Black Tea for weight loss is also an excellent choice. According to a 2017 study published in Metabolism: Clinical and Experimental, a compound in cinnamon called cinnamaldehyde activates thermogenesis.

The result is that your body creates heat, enabling you to burn calories quicker and more efficiently. What could be better?

  9. Smells like cinnamon fireball sweets! Though its flavour of cinnamon isn't as strong as it smells, I like to add a small spoonful of honey to bring out more of the flavour
