Health benefits of Ceylon Cinnamon Spice
The Ceylon Cinnamon Spice tea has plenty of benefits for your health. Cinnamon is not only unique and delicious, but also contains an essential oil called cinnamaldehyde. This oil 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 helps relieve digestive issues. Together with the health benefits of black tea, which contains antioxidants and helps to boost the metabolism and lower the risk of heart disease, our Ceylon Cinnamon Spice tea is a healthy beverage choice. Drinking this tea regularly may also improve brain function, reduce inflammation, and support healthy blood sugar levels. Sip on a cup of this delicious and beneficial tea to enhance your overall health and wellbeing.
How to make a perfect brew
- Bring the water to a boil
- Use 220ml of water per 6 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 nature and people, we are committed to ensure and improve 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 others, aiming at 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 profit.
Ceylon Cinnamon Spice Cake
Imagine biting into a fluffy, moist cake with just the right amount of sweetness, infused with the warming and fragrant aromas of Ceylon Cinnamon Spice tea. As you bite into the pillowy layers, you’re greeted by the rich and creamy spiced cream cheese frosting, which is 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 and more sophisticated substitute of Autumn’s favourite chai tea. The cinnamon and black tea give depth and body to this dessert, and a touch of ginger and cardamom elevates it. So, when it is cold outside, go ahead and treat yourself to a slice (or two) of this heartwarming and spicy deliciousness.
Keep the tea stored in the steel box, kept in a cool dark place. It is important when storing it to keep it away from warmth. If storing in the refrigerator or freezer, pack in small completely airtight packets or jars. Before use, wait for it to reach room temperature to prevent any condensation. Each packet should be used within a week after opening.
