Sometimes you just need a cup of tea to warm you up and wake up your body, especially during those cold winter months. That’s why I love this homemade Cinnamon Tea Latte recipe. The strong cinnamon flavor warms you up from the inside out and makes you bright and alert.
What’s even better is that this is a caffeine-free tea latte recipe, so you get all the health and alertness benefits of a cup of tea without any of the mid-morning jitters or afternoon crashes.

Turn this cinnamon tea into a latte by added some frothy coconut milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon! You’re sure to get coffee shop vibes all in the comfort of home with this recipe.
Tea lattes are a a type of milk tea. Like cafe lattes, they are typically made with steamed , frothy milk. But instead of espresso, they contain strong-brewed tea. Typically this is caffeinated tea, but the decaffeinated versions are made the same way with decaffeinate tea, like my cinnamon tea.
A tea latte may be served hot or cold, and all you need are a few simple ingredients, including your favorite tea.
You only need 5 pantry staple ingredients to make your own Cinnamon Tea Latte at home:
This Cinnamon Tea Latte is super simple to make, even on busy weekday mornings. Simply bring water and a cinnamon stick to a rolling boil in a small saucepan. Then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 mins.
Once your tea is made, add the coconut milk to a frother, or heat up and use a hand frother to make it thick and foamy like your favorite barista would! This is the latte element of the cinnamon tea.
Once ready, strain the tea in a cup and stir in raw honey. Pour in foamy milk, sprinkle with Ceylon cinnamon, and serve hot. Enjoy!
Nutritional Therapy Practitioner Tip: Cinnamon is excellent for balancing blood sugar levels and insulin. The antioxidants in cinnamon have anti-inflammatory effects, which may help lower your risk of disease. Try to use Ceylon cinnamon for the best health benefits. (source)
