You have the best cookbooks. I really enjoyed this tea. I used a sugar substitute, to taste and I had to leave out the pine nuts since I cannot get them.

Thank you, thank you! We spent three years in Korea and one of the things I really miss is the cinnamon tea. This recipe tastes exactly like it does in Korea. In Korea it's called soo jeong kwaw, and is served following dinner. It's usually served cold, but I love it hot too.

We all enjoyed this , the only exception is that I added some extra sugar to this. We also thought the pine nuts were a nice touch. Made for PRMR tag.
