Royal Cinnamon

$8.99 $

Royal Cinnamon has been harvested in the mountains around the ancient Vietnamese capital city of Huế for millennia.

Royal Cinnamon is the species Cinnamomum loureiroi, an heirloom variety very rarely exported, and it exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized. Cinnamomum loureiroi was historically called Saigon cinnamon, but most of what’s exported as Saigon cinnamon these days is Cinnamomum cassia. They are different species, but they are often confused for one another, and it’s worth noting that neither cinnamon grows anywhere near Saigon!

Use it in place of Saigon or other cinnamons in pastries and baked goods, or sprinkle into rich, savory meat or tomato-based dishes.
