It seems like we have all been sick with colds and sore throats since Christmas, so a lot of tea has been prepared in this house. I like to vary it a bit so we are not just drinking the same thing over and over. Here is a simple tea recipe from Sudan to help with the cold weather and sore throats. Sudanese Cinnamon Tea is made by infusing water with black tea and cinnamon sticks. For a strong flavor, add the cinnamon sticks with the tea as it heats up. They can also be added to already warmed tea with sugar cubes for individual tastes.
