Just call it the Sultan of spice. That’s because this rare, heirloom variety cinnamon is intensely fiery, fragrant and sweet, with unique and complex notes of brown butter, buckwheat honey and orange peel. Harvested in the mountains of Vietnam, in an ingenious way that allows the essential oils to concentrate on the bark as it air dries, it may be related to standard Saigon cinnamon, but is actually in a class all by itself. We give it the royal wave of approval.

If you swap this in wherever you’d use flavorless supermarket cinnamon, you’ll feel like you’re tasting cinnamon buns, snickerdoodles or chai masala tea for the very first time.
