Our Zanzibar true cinnamon (aka Ceylon cinnamon) is bright and sweet, with notes of pine, citrus peel and sea salt. Our cinnamon chips are cut from younger trees, and have an evergreen brightness and woodsy complexity unlike any other cinnamon we’ve ever tasted. They’re perfect for infusing in teas, cooking with rice dishes and garnishing cocktails and desserts. Use them whole or grind them into powder.

Cinnamon is the inner bark of several species of evergreen tree of the genus Cinnamomum aka Ceylon cinnamon. Our true cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) is grown by a cooperative of smallholder farmers on the Zanzibar islands off the east coast of Tanzania in the Indian Ocean, many of whom have been cultivating cinnamon and other spices (including our cloves, nutmeg and black pepper) for generations. It grows on the steep hillsides rising above the beach, where it thrives in the hot sun, salty breeze and sandy soil, a terroir that contributes to a subtle, smooth flavor without any bitterness. The cinnamon is hand-cut and sun-dried to order throughout the year to guarantee the freshest and most intense flavor.
