The inner tree bark of the evergreen cinnamon tree, this is new harvest Mexican Canela. Canela is indigenous to Sri Lanka and is the famous varietal first introduced to Latin America in the 16th century by the Spanish, quickly rising to fame. To this day, Mexico currently imports close to 95% of their supply abroad however the original hybridized “Ceylon” cultivars are still being grown in pockets of Oaxaca. These particular quills measure over 3 feet long and should not be confused with their counterfeit cousin, cassia, the cheap bitter “cinnamon stick” that accounts for 90% of American imports. Unfortunately it’s quite difficult to ship the full 3 foot quills so we are now offering them in 1 foot sections .
Real Canela is beyond aromatic with sweet floral and vanilla undertones. Extremely rare to find, even rarer in its full length form.
