About
Quang Nam,
Vietnam

The Quang Nam in central Vietnam is historically famous for spicy, sweet cinnamon, but in the last decade, the commodity market has shifted further north where the prices are lower. We were very happy to discover that the cinnamon here is a secret that we hope you keep with us. The incredible combination of sweet and spice will leave you spellbound.

They use a technique for harvesting cinnamon that we've never encountered before - instead of chopping down the tree to harvest the bark, they make a deep cut around the base of the tree and let the bark dry on the tree for a couple of weeks before harvesting it. That makes it easier to harvest, but it also concentrates essential oils rather than evaporating as the bark dries in the hot sun. The bark comes off the tree mostly dry and very intensely spicy and sweet, with a beautiful fragrance that we could smell from half a mile away.
