How to Stop Cinnamon From Being Slimy

By Maxine Wallace

Cinnamon tea warms the body, aides in circulation and has an inherent energizing sweetness. Don't let a cup of lovely cinnamon tea turn slimy by using powdered cinnamon, which has a tendency to thicken and take on an unappetizing texture. Instead, brew tea from whole cinnamon sticks and enjoy the ease of this simple warming and soothing beverage.


Step 1

Break one cinnamon stick up into several pieces and add it to a mug. Bring a pot of water to a near-boil and fill up the mug.

Step 2

Steep the tea for eight to ten minutes, or until it becomes very fragrant. Once the desired strength is achieved, use a strainer to remove the cinnamon pieces from the mug.

Step 3

Flavor the tea with a sweetener to taste. If desired, add milk or whipped cream to the tea for a smoother flavor. For added sweetness, garnish the tea with a slice or orange or lemon.
