Group Buy The Kandy - Ceylon Cinnamon Gourmet from Sri Lanka

$13.95 $17.95


VanillaPura is pleased to introduce our first "non-vanilla" spice, as requested by many of our customers for use in extract-making. Ceylon Cinnamon is here, and it's delightful. Due to the dry, brittle nature of this and other spices, they are sealed in pouches but often not vacuum sealed, as the sharp edges of the spice can puncture a vacuumed pouch. 

Best Price: $3.32/oz when you buy a 1lb pouch
Cinnamon Family: Cinnamomum Vera (True Cinnamon/Ceylon)
Cinnamon Origin: Sri Lanka
Aroma: Sweet, soft, floral and fruity
Extract Taste: Cinnamon with soft undertones of tropical fruit & spice
Size 3-9 sticks/oz. Each stick is 3-5 inches long on average. 
Minimum Order 4oz ($3.49/oz) 
This is a "Group Buy" product, which means it has a low price because it is bundled with other orders. Orders that include Group Buy products usually ship in 4 weeks.

Ceylon cinnamon is one of the world's most sought-after spices, given its delicate nature and its sweet aroma and taste. It is only grown in Sri Lanka where the farmers take great pride in the process of peeling the quells from the cinnamon tree bark and hand rolling them into the beautiful cinnamon sticks you will receive. Much like the sweet vanilla beans harvested in Sri Lanka, Ceylon Cinnamon captures the climate and the nutrient-rich soil of its birth place.  


Sri Lanka Map


We named this amazingly-sweet spice after the appropriately-named city of Kandy in Sri Lanka. 

When you open a pouch of Ceylon Cinnamon sticks, you will notice that the smell is not overwhelming or powerful at first. The natural drying process of the quells locks the sweetness inside. As you visually observe the cinnamon stick, you will see that it is not hollow like other types of cinnamon (such as Cassia cinnamon) and it is easier to break demonstrating how delicate each quell is. 

When you break or grind the quells, the wonderful cinnamon aroma is released...and wow, is it wonderful. Dropping the cinnamon stick into an alcohol base for at-home extract-making also releases the beautiful, natural aroma as well. You will immediately notice why Ceylon Cinnamon is in such high demand, as it is nature's perfect blend of spicy sweetness with fruity and floral undertones.

While Cylon Cinnamon is esteemed greatly for its sweet cinnamon extract taste, it is also used in hot teas, holiday wassails, coffee, hot chocolate and horchatas among many others. It is also ground for its powder that is sprinkled on top of frostings, pies, drinks and other desserts.

It's SO Worth It .... Excellence In A Cinnamon Stick!

I am a first time user of Ceylon Cinnamon and it is a "keeper".

Out of the bag there is a very light cinnamon aroma, but once microplanes the aroma bursts forth and is delicious smelling. I've used this by using my microplaner and put in with my hot oatmeal, and my fresh blueberries (with a little of my vanilla sugar, plain greek yogurt and kefir blended, and walnuts).

I transferred the cinnamon sticks to a glass air tight jar and the cinnamon aroma is now plentiful (especially since one of the sticks I microplane regularly into my breakfast meals).

Thank you VanillaPura for expanding my choices for cinnamon and bringing this opportunity to us to purchase and help these farmers too. Appreciate all you do for everyone.
