Dr. Salerno recommends sweetening your pure, organic tea with cinnamon, as the spice is known to reduce blood sugar.
Bring water to a boil. Turn off heat. Let tea bags and cinnamon steep for 5-10 minutes. Remove tea bags and pour tea into gallon pitcher. Fill pitcher the rest of the way with cool water and allow to chill for 2 to 3 hours. Serve over ice.
