This tea is naturally sweet and is delicious hot or cold. It is antibacterial, antiviral and may lower blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels as well as lowering blood pressure. On top of all that, it also helps to curb your appetite. Sri Lanka Cinnamon is classified at “true” cinnamon. Other cinnamons (Cassia, Korintje, Saigon) have stronger flavors but do not have same benefits as Sri Lanka Cinnamon.
