    Made on Mikekey's recommendation. It's July and I made a pitcher for iced tea. Being a cinnamaholic I used 8 cinnamon sticks (the wee 3 inch ones) and 6 Earl Grey tea bags. Oh Great and Glorious Cinnamon Goddess is this wonderful, I'm so glad that I buy cinnamon sticks by the 1.13 KG box!! :D

    Very easy and tasty. Better than the pre-spiced tea, which usually hasn't enough cinnamon, or has other flavors with it. This would be good during the summer over ice also.

    Very nice! I scaled the recipe down for one and enjoyed it cold! Made by a Looney Spoon Phoodie for ZWT#6!

    This is fabulous! I used ceylon tea that I got in a Middle Eastern shop (Sahadi's). Made for ZWT6 Zee Zany Zesties!

    Wow, do I love this? So good, and I am in love! A great taste and as others mentioned, a great health benefit too. I used green tea, cinnamon stick, and added ice. Oh boy, tell ya 'bout a lovely cooling tea, is! I used the cinnamon stick to stir and boy, how nice! Made for ZWT6 Zee Zesties!


I joined Recipezaar to learn new recipes that are home cooked. I grew up having ready-meals like Encor and Stouffers and needed recipes that don't simply require opening a box and plopping in the oven! I enjoy cooking when I have the time to try new dishes. I make every recipe as written if I'm reviewing it to give a true review. If I make alterations that aren't in the directions, I don't feel it's a true reflection of the recipe; it's another recipe to me. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" width=75%> (Zaar World Tour 4) <img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> (Australia/New Zealand Swap #15)
