Sri Lankan Cinnamon

  1. sri lankan cinnamon (true cinnamon) has a different, milder flavor profile from the cassia and other cinnamon that is more usually used in the US. the true cinnamon is preferred in Europe.

    Here is some info

    Its a confused picture - you have to figure out what you like best.
