Word of Caution: Cinnamon tea, in spite of having many impressive benefits, has some side effects too. Excess intake of cinnamon tea can be very dangerous for the liver, and can even cause liver failure. This is due to the presence of an active ingredient called coumarin. While most varieties of cinnamon have safe levels, excessive consumption of Cassia, Saigon, and Korintje cinnamon varieties can be dangerous. That being said, a few cups of cinnamon tea each day should be satisfactory, and will not pose a threat to your liver health.
