Cinnamon is one of the most well known spices in the world! But most Cinnamon sold is actually Cassia Cinnamon, not True Cinnamon. Cassia Cinnamon, fine in it's own right, is blown out of the water with sweetness by this Sri Lankan Cinnamon. Sri Lankan True Cinnamon comes in many grades, each regulated by rigid ISO standards. Commonly sold True Cinnamon is sold in C5 quality - thick long sticks. However, the finest is our special Alba grade Ceylon Cinnamon. Delicate, thin, layer upon layer on fine perfuming Cinnamon. It's a pastry chef's dream cinnamon, and the best in the world - although much more expensive than it's Cassia counterpart. Freshly grind to use - this Cinnamon can even be crushed with your bare hands, but we suggest using a pestle and mortar. You can even infuse the taste and aroma from single sticks by stirring in teas, coffees, and liquid based desserts.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.

Great quality!

Fresh and fragrant, definitely one of the best cinnamon you can find in HK! Used to spice duck and the milder flavours works great in savoury dishes

Average

While the sticks had flavour, the strong aromas normally associated with ceylon cinnamon sticks were missing.

Hi Rahul, thanks so much for your kind feedback! For more strong cinnamon flavour, we would highly recommend buying cassia cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon is milder by nature, with much lower coumarin content, and much lower volatile oil content. Both of these give off a stronger aroma which could only be found in cassia cinnamon. For strong cooking, we advise cassia cinnamon will have more flavour. Ceylon cinnamon flavours could only come out with more gentle and milder flavours (e.g. less added sugars). We could suggest you also get a lot more flavour out of the cinnamon if you grind it, and we can help you freshly grind if need.
