While Sri Lanka’s most famous export today might be tea, historically the most important has been Ceylon Cinnamon. In fact, so strong is the affinity between Ceylon Cinnamon and Sri Lanka that the very botanical name of the spice – Cinnamomum zeylanicum is derived from the island’s former name, Ceylon. Strongly aromatic, sweet, pleasant, warm but hardly bitter or astringent. This is the most important spice grown in Sri Lanka. It is derived from the bark of an aromatic coniferous shrub Cinnamomum zeylanicum. Ceylon Cinnamon is also known as True Cinnamon or Pure Cinnamon.
