About the product

There are essentially 3 types of cinnamon; Sri Lankan, Vietnamese and Thai. So-called ‘true cinnamon’ originates in Sri Lanka. We favour the refined, delicate and sweet notes of the Navashree and Nithyashree varietals grown in Kerala and Karantaka. Cinnamon is used widely both that country and many parts of India in both sweet and savoury dishes and beverages like masala chai. The bitterness is more pronounced in the ground spice, especially if overcooked; and the flavour is quick to deteriorate if it’s not used when sparkling-fresh.
