Botanical Name: Cinnamomum verum
Our organic, fair trade sweet cinnamon sticks are rolled from the bark of the Cinnamomum verum tree. Their several thin layers and light, reddish-brown color signal a “true cinnamon” stick. Throughout history, cinnamon has had vast cultural significance. It was highly prized by many ancient cultures as a gift to monarchs and deities, and it maintains a long history of traditional use within eastern and western cultures. Ceylon cinnamon, also known as sweet cinnamon, is now popular around the world with its diverse range of uses from confectionaries and cordials, to perfumes and cosmetics. One of our favorite uses for Cinnamomum verum is in cinnamon tea.
Cinnamon has been enjoyed since ancient times, mentioned in not only the Bible, but also in Egyptian texts. It was widely traded thousands of years ago in Europe and in Asia by Arab spice traders. Its uniquely sweet and delicious flavor and warming, uplifting aroma have been utilized in countless confectionaries, baked goods, perfumes, cosmetics, beverages, and cordials. Sweet cinnamon, often referred to as “true cinnamon”, has a more subtle, delicate, and sweet flavor than the closely related cassia cinnamon.
