After leaning about Ceylon cinnamon, I had to try it. I bought mine from from Savory Spice Shop. As you can see from the picture at the top it even looks different. It is much softer and very easy to grind in my spice grinder. I like it much better than the super market variety!
I'm a Tennessee tea sipper. I drink hot tea like other people drink coffee. My latest favorite wake up drink is hot organic white tea with honey, fresh ground Ceylon cinnamon, lemon and oranges wedge - oh so yummy! If you don't have a grinder you can break up the cinnamon and put pieces of the bark in your tea or tea pot and strain it out after it steeps or leave it in but be sure not to swallow it and get choked. If you have a hard time finding Organic White Tea, I use Prince of Peach White Tea from Vita Cost.
Ceylon Cinnamon is a good substitute for cassia cinnamon in any recipe. Give it a try and I bet you will be hooked just like me.
