Ground Ceylon Cinnamon

Regular price $7.49

Cinnamon Verum or Ceylon cinnamon tastes very different to cassia varieties that are more widely available in North America, and yet preserves that cinnamon flavor you love in cinnamon buns and other baked goods.
  • Also known as Cinnamomum Verum or Cinnamomum Zeylanicum
  • Heirloom variety native to Sri Lanka
  • Sourced from the central hills of Sri Lanka 
  • Organically grown

Tastes floral with notes of honey and crystalized ginger.

Ceylon cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka (known as Ceylon prior to 1972) and is a rare find in North America. If you or someone you know usually says "I'm not a fan of cinnamon," that's because you've been eating the strong "in your face" tasting cassia. Try Ceylon and you're in for a wonderful surprise!

Great uses

  • Bake into cakes, breads, cupcakes, muffins
  • Sprinkle over fresh fruit, yogurt, pancakes, oatmeal, chia pudding and other breakfasts
  • Add to your morning coffee and tea for a special treat and mix into smoothies and lattes
  • Shake over ice cream, puddings, cheesecake, chocolate tart and other desserts
  • Stir into soups, chili, curries and sauces to elevate flavors of other spices you are adding
  • Make fresh cinnamon tea: add 1 tablespoon ground Ceylon cinnamon or crush one Ceylon cinnamon stick into boiling water and steep for 10 minutes, covered.

Good pairing combos: cardamom, nutmegcloves

Detailed harvesting process

The harvest season for Ceylon cinnamon in Sri Lanka is from June to August each year. Our cinnamon farmer works to harvest all of his crop at this time. We buy a portion of this as whole cinnamon sticks while the rest is milled on demand, grinding each small batch exactly when we need it. This way, the ground cinnamon you get has its natural oils preserved — you will smell and taste the difference.

Did you know that cinnamon powder you buy off a grocery store shelf can be 4-5 years old? The natural oils that give the spice its flavor and aroma (to say nothing about health benefits) will already be dried up by then!

The Best Cinnamon

I read an article that talked about the differences in cinnamon that enlightened me to where to purchase the best cinnamon, which is cinnamon from Sri Lanka. I have found this cinnamon to have a much richer flavor. I use it in my baking and on cinnamon/sugar toast in the morning.

Delighted

Never realized that cinnamon other than Sri Lankan can have adverse effects on your health until I was looking up
it's nutritional value one day. Since I use a great deal of cinnamon in my daily diet, I immediately began looking for an excellent source to purchase authentic Sri Lankan cinnamon. Viola! That's when I discovered Cinnamon Tree Organics. So glad I did.

Satisfied with Purchase

I compared what I was using to this cinnamon and immediately noticed the difference in color. There is also a different taste (more subtle and less "biting") and the powder I got was much finer than my old store-bought stuff. Also, my old cinnamon came from one of those "big box" stores, so it was much older and I needed to use more for flavoring. Fortunately, I use a lot of cinnamon, every day in my coffee pot and I sprinkle some in my re-usable coffee pods, before brewing. The three ounce bag held a lot more than I thought it would! It's a nice feeling to know that you are using fresher ingredients.
