The Botanical Origin of Cinnamon Leaves

Botanically known as Cinnamomum verum, cinnamon leaves come from the lush forests of Sri Lanka. This evergreen plant is carefully cultivated to preserve its unique aromatic properties.

A Historical Spice

The culinary history of cinnamon leaves dates back to antiquity, where cinnamon was a precious spice used in medicine and perfumery. Originating from Sri Lanka, the most prized variety of cinnamon tree, Cinnamomum verum, has been used for its leaves in Asian cuisine, particularly in traditional dishes such as curries and stews. The global spread of cinnamon during the colonial period contributed to its integration into international cuisine. Today, cinnamon leaves are still used to bring a subtle aromatic nuance to various dishes, reflecting the rich culinary heritage of this ancient spice.
