Our Royal Cinnamon has been harvested in the mountains around the ancient Vietnamese capital city of Huế for milennia.
The same species as Saigon cinnamon (cinnamomum loureiroi), royal cinnamon is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported, and exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized.
Use it in place of Saigon or other cinnamons in pastries and baked goods, or sprinkle into rich, savory meat or tomato-based dishes.
If you’re looking for cinnamon that’s less sweet and spicy and more citrusy and complex, check out our Cinnamon Verum.
What They’re Saying:
“When my friends quizzed me on the exact ingredients, I was forced to fess up and pass around the jar of cinnamon that was solely responsible for the cake’s “wow” factor…Compared to any other ground cinnamon, this is powerful stuff.” Bon Appetit / Healthyish
