Te Canell/ Cinnamon & Star Anise Tea


Here's a recipe for Canel or cinnamon tea. This simple tea includes cinnamon sticks and star anise which makes for a aromatic and delicious tea that will have your home smelling delightfully sweet.


1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
2 cups of water
1 pinch of salt
sugar/honey to taste

Servings 2 people.   

In a small saucepan add in cinnamon stick and anise. Allow to come to a boil, add in pinch of salt and reduce temperature. Allow the tea to simmer. After 5 minutes remove from stove top and pour into cup. Add sugar or honey to taste and enjoy!

FYI: Cinnamon's scent actually promotes brain activity. It's also a very good source of dietary fiber, iron and calcium which leads to a healthy colon and heart disease.
