A Brief History of the Cinnamon Herb
People have used cinnamon since at least 2,000 BCE. Famously, the ancient Egyptians utilised the spice as a perfuming agent during the embalming process of late Pharaohs.
The Old Testament of the Bible also makes mention of it as an ingredient in anointing oil. It eventually arrived in Europe via Arab traders, many of whom wove elaborate stories to justify its exorbitant price.
The Unfounded Tale of Cinnamon’s Origins
One such tale dates back to the 5th century BCE. It suggests that enormous birds carried cinnamon sticks to their nests perched near mountain tops - beyond anyone’s reach.
In order to reach the spice, people began to place ox meat below the nests to tempt the creatures down. When the birds returned home with their catch, the weight from the meat would cause the nest to collapse.
All that was left, then, was to gather the fallen cinnamon sticks. Yet, of course, none of the story - not even a little bit - is true! Birds or no birds, our Cinnamon Loose Leaf Tea is a delight to the senses. It will, undoubtedly, impress casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike.
