Discover how to make Cinnamon Powder Tea if you don't have Cinnamon sticks. While sticks are better and far less messy, Ceylon Cinnamon powder tea is faster and more convenient.

We got one of those small Chinese tea pots with a fine mesh filter built in. Up to now the the metal mesh filter we had tried had holes that were too big or did not reach near the bottom of the pot. But there seems to be wider a range of these Chinese and Japanese infusers with a very fine infuser.

Prep Time : 5 minutes 
Cook Time : 3 minutes


  • 1/2 tsp. Ceylon Cinnamon powder
  • 1 cup boiling hot rwater

DIRECTIONS (For 1.25 Cup)

  1. Boil 1 cup of water.
  2. Add 1/2 tsp of Ceylon Cinnamon powder to the infuser basket.
  3. Stir the powder gently.
  4. Cover with the lid and let it stand for 3 minutes.
  5. Gently pour into small Chinese tea cups or to one larger cup just for yourself.


Where did we get these glass mugs with fine strainers? In a Chinese store. About $12 - $16.00 each with the strainer. These fine mesh strainer single glass cups are not found on Amazon unfortunately. We bought three, all of which worked great with little or no powder residue in the tea when we made it.

While we recommend using the glass teapots, they do have clay Tea kettles with fine mesh filters too. You have to hunt for them. Some of the Kettles have strainers with holes that are too big for powder since they are designed for large leaf tea. So look carefully for the ones with the smallest possible strainer holes so the cinnamon powder can be strained properly.

Unlike ordinary Cassia Cinnamon you find in the stores, Ceylon Cinnamon has low Coumarin levels, so it won't damage your liver, especially if you are a regular Cinnamon tea drinker. Besides Ceylon Cinnamon is mild, yet slightly sweeter. It's not spicy like store bought Cassia Cinnamon, but has hints of cloves and citrus with a wonderful subtle aroma.
