100% Pure & Natural Ultra Premium Ceylon Cinnamon sticks are the real deal. Beautifully packed in a polished round can, that pays homage to what is special inside. Quality Cinnamon with low Coumarin content. Our Cinnamon sticks represent some of the highest quality Ceylon Cinnamon sticks we could source, chosen for their color, shape, small size, quilling density, fresh taste and aroma.
Add a cinnamon stick to ciders, cocoa, coffee, or as a decoration in your kitchen. Grind and add to any baked good as well. Ceylon cinnamon sticks (or quills) have many thin layers and can easily be made into powder using a coffee or spice grinder, whereas cassia Cinnamon sticks are much harder. Our cinnamon sticks are all natural high quality Cinnamon and not the lower grade Cinnamon you get in many Indian or Chinese stores and come from the bark of the cinnamon trees of Sri Lanka. And since spices deteriorate when exposed to light we packed it in a can so it lasts much longer.
Ceylon Cinnamon is also known as Sri Lankan Cinnamon, Real Cinnamon, Cinnamomum Zeylanicum, Cinnamomum Verum. and Mexican Cinnamon. Unlike regular Cassia Cinnamon, Ceylon Cinnamon sticks are soft, rolled like a cigar and flake easily for grinding into fine powder or to add into curries or flavor rice or custards. The sticks are made from the inner bark of the Cinnamon tree by skilled tradesman via a special hand crafted process. The specialized knowledge for this work is extremely limited even in its native Sri Lanka but the end result is the finest Cinnamon in the world.
Ceylon Cinnamon Sticks are crumbly, mild, yet slightly sweeter with hints of cloves and Citrus and not hard like the Cassia Cinnamon. If you want a hard Cinnamon stick then you should buy Cassia Cinnamon, which has high levels of Coumarin. If however you want the sweeter, smoother and easy to grind (won't break the blender) Cinnamon for fine desserts, then choose high quality Ceylon Cinnamon.
