Real C5 quality cinnamon – delicate and aromatic from cinnamon farmer Ananda in Sri Lanka.
Mill & Mortar only sells real cinnamon from Sri Lanka (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum) – simply because it tastes better. True cinnamon – great quality, great taste – has a sweet, warm taste and a delicate wafting aroma. All real cinnamon is hand-cut as opposed to Kassia cinnamon, which can be processed mechanically.
In Sri Lanka, cinnamon harvesting is a recognised craftsmanship, often inherited in the family.
Ananda’s Cinnamon and ALBA cinnamon are the highest qualities in real cinnamon and are derived from the thinnest and most aromatic pieces of inner tree bark. Only the most skilled and experienced cutters produce cinnamon of Mill & Mortar quality.
Machine-cut Cassia cinnamon from Sri Lanka can be identified by looking at the ends that appear like tight-rolled cigars and that crumble between the fingers.
