We Do...

Ceylon cinnamon from Cinnamom zeylanicum blume or Cinnamom verum, which is entirely different to the Cassia cinnamon (China cinnamon - Cinnamom cassia). As the botanical name suggests, these are entirely two different species.

Ceylon cinnamon is very delicate in its taste, less bitter and has a taste and flavor which is mildly sweet and savory with a citrus note. This is a very versatile spice that can go into foods, beverages, alcoholic cocktails and juices whether they are hot or cold and whether they are sweet or savory. Any food or drink with cinnamon tastes better and enhances the fragrance.

Ceylon cinnamon was used by Sri Lankans from the historical periods to provide vitality and good health. In the olden days, Arab merchants took Ceylon cinnamon all around the world and Romans and other Europeans used this from biblical periods. After the Arabs, the Portuguese and the Dutch fought many wars to get the cinnamon trade from Sri Lanka under their control and they took this spice well beyond Europe into Mexico and central America.
