This is a lovely simple recipe for traditional cinnamon tea as it is drunk in Sudan. You can reduce / increase the servings easily also. Posted for ZWT 4.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place 4 cups of boiling water in a tea pot with the tea & allow to brew for a few minutes then stir.
  2. Place 1 cinnamon stick & 1 sugar lump in a tea cup & pour the tea slowly over them.
  3. Serve with an additional bowl of sugar lumps for guests to add if they like. (You may also add a cinnamon stick to the tea pot whilst the tea is brewing for a stronger cinnamon flavour).

I actually followed the directions & enjoyed the tea very much! As someone else mentioned, how can anything with cinnamon be bad? Thanks, hunny, for a delicious cuppa!

yummyyyyy! I love cinnamon drinks, and I never tried english tea before (I normally drink green tea), so this was a treat! I do have a sweet tooth, especially during Ramadan, so I did add just a hair more sugar, but other than that this was great! Thanks Um Safia!
