So-called "true" cinnamon (cinnamomum zeylanicum or c. verum) has a warm, sweet, woody perfume that is more delicate than its more intense cousin, cassia. The debate over which is superior is mostly rooted in colonial commercial rivalries. In addition to this cinnamon from (formerly British) Sri Lanka, we carry Korintje cinnamon from (formerly Dutch) Indonesia and Saigon cinnamon from (formerly French) Vietnam. Each is subtly different, equally wonderful, and adds enticing sweet warmth to sweet and savoury dishes. Use with restraint - all our varieties are more intense than supermarket "cinnamon".
