Health benefits of Ceylon Cinnamon Spice
Ceylon Cinnamon Spice tea possesses several health benefits. Cinnamon is not just unique and delicious, but contains an essential oil called cinnamaldehyde, which has anti-viral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Besides the cinnamaldehyde, cinnamon also has prebiotic properties. This means it stimulates the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut, and can help to relieve digestive issues. And it has the benefits of black tea, which contains antioxidants, helps to boost the metabolism, and may even lower the risk of heart disease. Drinking this tea regularly may also help improve brain function, reduce inflammation, and support healthy blood sugar levels. Enjoy a cup of this delicious tea to help enhance your overall health and wellbeing.
How to make a perfect brew
- Bring water to a boil
- Use 220ml of water per 2.5 grams tea
- Steep for 3-5 minutes, and enjoy your tea
Tea for the people of Sri Lanka
The famed Island of Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) was sought by ancient explorers for its spices and, since the late 1800s, also for its tea. This tea is a combination of Ceylon’s finest produce – a Single Region Tea, grown at 4,000 feet elevation in the Dimbula valley, and Ceylon Cinnamon, known as ‘true Cinnamon’. At Dilmah, following our philosophy of kindness to both nature and people, we are committed to ensuring and improving the welfare of the local workers, their families, and the community around the estates. The MJF foundation, named after our founder Merrill J. Fernando, serves this purpose and many more, with the aim of sharing the benefits of business with communities across Sri Lanka. As Merrill J. Fernando said at Hunuwela’s Cinnamon factory, in September 2020, our primary objective is the welfare of our workers and those who make the business successful, not just profit.
Ceylon Cinnamon Spice Cake
Imagine biting into a fluffy, moist cake with just the right amount of sweetness, infused with the warming, fragrant aromas of Ceylon Cinnamon Spice tea. As you bite into the pillowy layers, you’re greeted by the rich, spiced cream cheese frosting, the perfect tangy complement to the nuanced flavours of this cake. Take this Chai cake recipe and infuse the milk with our Ceylon Cinnamon Spice tea, a richer, more sophisticated choice for the favourite chai tea of Autumn. The cinnamon and black tea give depth and body to this dessert, elevated with a touch of ginger and cardamom. So, when it’s cold outside, go ahead and treat yourself to a slice (or two) of this heartwarming and spicy deliciousness.
Keep the tea stored in its steel box, kept in a cool dark place. It is important when storing it to keep it away from sources of heat. If storing in the refrigerator or freezer, pack in small, completely airtight packets or jars. Before use, wait for it to reach room temperature, in order to prevent any condensation. Each defrosted packet should be used within a week after opening.
