Cinnamon, Ceylon Sticks
This cinnamon has quite a different flavor profile than the more prevalent cassia cinnamon. Ceylon, also known as "true" cinnamon, has a delicate and more complex flavor, with essence of orange, floral notes and warmth. It has much less of that "hot and spicy" cinnamon flavor than cassia. This is the cinnamon you'll find in Mexican Hot Chocolate or mole poblano. It works well with Indian cuisines too. In baking, it pairs well with citrus and vanilla.

Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
