Additional Info

Cinnamon is one of the most commonly used spices in the world. Throughout history, it has been revered by many cultures in different time periods. The ancient Egyptians burned the spice during funerals and believed it's smoke helped carry the spirits of the dead to the afterworld. Later on, during European world exploration in the 15th and 16th centuries, cinnamon become one of the most sought after commodities of explorers. It was during those years that a belief grew in the ability of the scent of cinnamon to magically attract customers to a place of business. Perfect as the base of our flavored teas (We tested teas frorn various other origins around the world as base for our flavoured teas, but none made the grade). Flavouring oils, not artificial crystals, give the tea drinker high quality tea that tastes great.
