Olivier Rœllinger's words

C5 Grade Cinnamon is of the highest quality. It has an intense and refined flavour. Ceylon cinnamon contains Cinamic acid, which gives it a both deep and refined flavour. True cinnamon has a very characteristic taste, which is pleasant, warm and intense. I use it in the majority of my spice blends. Cinnamon offers a harmonious note to fruit, particularly citrus fruit.


True cinnamon comes from the bark of the young shoots of Cinnamomum zeylanicum, a large tree of the Lauraceae family. It should not be confused with cassia or Chinese cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia), which is less subtle. They can be told apart by the thickness and color of the bark. Cinnamon is thinner and is a warm yellow-brown, while cassia is thicker and reddish-brown.
