Cinnamon Tree Leaves
We have run out of stock for this item.
Warm, spiced leaves from the true cinnamon tree (Cinnamomum verum), sourced from our partner cooperative in Zanzibar, Tanzania.
Cinnamon tree leaves have traditionally been a byproduct of the cinnamon harvest. Since they contain the delicate essence of the cinnamon, we thought to put them to use. Use as a slightly sweeter, more interesting alternative to traditional bay laurel leaves. They also make a beautiful cinnamon tea: just infuse a few leaves in a teapot with hot water.
Burlap & Barrel is the sole importer of Zanzibar spices to the US. Like all of the spices from our partner cooperative in Zanzibar, our cinnamon is grown organically.
