Ceylon cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka (known as Ceylon prior to 1948) 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" cassia. Try Ceylon and you're in for a wonderful surprise!

Detailed harvesting process
The harvest season for Ceylon cinnamon in Sri Lanka is from June to August each year. Our cinnamon farmer, Mr. Dinesh, 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 that you get from us 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 (not to say anything about any health benefits) will have already be dried up by then!
