And all about

the cinnamon

The name cinnamon comes, via Greek and ancient Hebrew, from the Indonesian words which mean "sweet wood". If you follow the trade route on the map, it all makes sense.


Cinnamon is grown across Asia. Fine cinnamon is actually the peeled inner bark of the cinnamon plant, which is part of the Laurel family. The most highly prized is Ceylon cinnamon, which is grown as a tall bush in Sri Lanka.

 The cinnamon is nurtured according to age-old natural farming methods, free of any pesticides, and is harvested skillfully by hand. The thin inner bark is peeled off the cinnamon branch or trunk after the rainy season when it is soft. The bark then curls as it dries.

“People never learn anything by being told,

they have to find out for themselves.”

-Paulo Coelho
