Plant & perfume

Fine, sweet and subtle, “Ceylon Cinnamon” (Cinnamomum verumou zeylanicum) is certainly the best of cinnamon. Its flavor resembles the more commonly found cassia cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia); but it is more exquisite with floral notes almost of roses and hints of orange and lemon. It will express itself perfectly for a diffusion of its flavors in milk, cream, panna-cotta... and will agree pleasantly in pastry.

The Ceylon cinnamon is an evergreen tree, fifteen to twenty meters high. It has leathery, shiny leaves on top. Cinnamon is simply the bark of the harvested tree.

A long journey

Ceylon Cinnamon comes from Sri Lanka, native to the central mountains of the island. The importance of the Cinnamon culture is such that a caste in Sri Lanka was dedicated to it (the Salagama). It was introduced to the Seychelles and then to Madagascar in the 18th century.

Our cinnamon comes from the Vatovavy-Fitovinany region in Madagascar. The cinnamon harvest takes place from January to April. It is done manually when the stems of the cinnamon tree have a diameter of 3 to 5cm; The bark is then removed and then dried for 4 days in the sun to give a high quality cinnamon.
