Introduction to the Cinnamon Experience
Cinnamon was discovered in Sri Lanka by Portuguese. They Identified it is a wild tree, researching its benifits and designing method to cultivate and harvest it. In timecinnamon cultivation and export became one of our prime assets as Sri Lanka produces 90% of world's supply of true cinnamon.
This spice is used in savoury foods, has a fragrant aroma and is incredibly benificial for health, frequently in traditional ayurvedic remedies. Cinnamon isn't as well known as its tea export counterpart. Many that live in and visit Sri Lanka are sure to see tea plantations and tea pluckers.
Cinnamon cultivation is very unique process, also a scarcely known operation. It is truely a one of a kind experience that is both interesting and different, but if we cannot get your attention with knowledge, then may be the cinnamon infused teas, cocktails or biscuits, 4 course lunch might be more appealling.
People never learn anything by being told, they have to find out for themselves. -Paulo Coelho
