The spicy soul warmer is a hot tip against bad mood in the grey season. Cocoa has a mood-lifting effect thanks to the amino acid tryptophane and the active ingredient theobromine.

Roiboos tea, in contrast to black tea, does not contain any stimulating substances (theine), so the cinnamon flower tea in this preparation variant is also suitable for children or as an evening tea.
