Recipe: Cinnamon Basil Tea with Cocoa

Herbal and spiced teas
November 07, 2009



Have I mention before how much I love cinnamon basil? Its cinnamon aroma can't be described, the plant is still producing fresh leaves in November and the flowers... are in the header of this blog.

Cinnamon basilCinnamon basil can be grown as other basil varieties: seed in march/april without pressing the seeds, transplant after a month, harvest all summer long (and autumn too).

Cinnamon basil can be used... well, in every dish where you would use basil or cinnamon.
It's perfect with dessert recipes, like the Chocolate and Cinnamon Basil Patties and can be added to teas mixtures.
