Oriental scents, intoxicating warmth, and health benefits, how can one resist? Sweeter and more aromatic than cinnamon powder, with a slight spiciness, cinnamon berry comes close without being identical. Its shape, between tail peppers and clove, offers a wide range of uses.
Exploring the botany of cinnamon berry
Cinnamon berry comes from Cinnamorum cassia. Originating from China and Indonesia, its bark produces the world's best cinnamon. This tree, part of the laurel family, can reach up to 13 meters in height. The branches exposed by cinnamon harvesting serve as firewood, and the leaves are bought by distillers. Only the flowers of this tree remain unused, much to our delight! Unpleasant in smell, they give rise to our delicious cinnamon berries.
A tale of cinnamon and love
A Chinese legend adds a touch of mystery to this spice: the goddess of cinnamon, infatuated with a young philosopher, used all her charm to win him over. It is from this story that the aphrodisiac reputation attributed to the plant originates.
