Cinnamon Tea

Cinnamon Tea

I like to have tea without milk, recently have tried out cinnamon tea and found good difference in our health. A very, simple and easy to prepare but with loads of health benefits. As most of us knew that cinnamon is good for Diabetics and honey with warm water cuts bad cholesterol and helps in relieving acidity. I got to infuse both these ingredients together as tea which should be taken early morning in empty stomach and 30 mins after dinner before going to bed.
