This is one of my favorites, and I can’t believe I haven’t shared it yet! So many teas…so little time!

Cinnamon Rooibos Chai from David’s Tea is organic, kosher, caffeine-free and Fair Trade. It’s also delicious! It balances savory cinnamon with sweet apple. Rooibos tea is great for hydration and contains vitamins and minerals – a great way to start the day…or end the day, or relax after a run…so basically any time!

Cinnamon is supposed to be great for concentration. It’s also better than mint for freshening breath. Concentration and fresh breath are a perfect combination for a late night study session with someone you’re sweet on. Or I imagine it would be. My study days are loooong past!

Other health benefits of cinnamon include… antioxidant properties, anti-inflammatory properties, lowers cholesterol, and can improve sensitivity to insulin. Of course, that gets cancelled out when the cinnamon is in a glazed roll!

I love this tea because it’s warm and comforting. So often, teas smell heavenly but the flavour is disappointing. Not so here. The rich flavour of cinnamon matches the intoxicating smell, and slight heat of the cinnamon balances the sweet apple flavour. Even the colour is warming, a rich burnt orange to match this season.

I’m not a hot mess. I’m a spicy disaster!

Day or night, I find it very satisfying when I am craving something sweet or I want a mellow drink when I’m tired. 

Happy Monday!
