What you'll do
You never tested Cinnamon! Real Cinnamon (Cinnamonum zeylanicum) is an endemic tree from Sri Lanka. 3 000 years ago, its “bark” started to be exported. From the Iron Age up to the XXIst century, our island still the only source of what was the “Queen of Spices”. But, do you really know what is a spice? We propose a travel through space and time, The Tall of Cinnamon; just with a walk around our gardens. While strolling in the gardens you will learn the little stories of the Plant Odyssey, how vanilla, coffee, cocoa ... came to your table, why you have never tasted cinnamon before you came to our island. - Let us initiate you to an ancestral process that changed the face of the world. Learn how we grow and peel the Cinnamon. - We will tell you why and how it came. - Discover, through the Cinnamon History, the genius and foolish quest of the humans for wellbeing and profits. - Be a witness
For 17 years, I am the only French planter of True Cinnamon (Cinnamonum zeylanicum or Cinnamonum verum). Passionate about sociology, geopolitics and history, after a thousand and one lives spent on four continents, I naturally interested in the “Queen of Spices”. True Cinnamon has, through the centuries, changed the face of the world. From Mesopotamians and Egyptian mummies to Crusades, from the Queen of Sabah to Coca-Cola, following Vasco de Gama and Christopher Columbus odysseys; the subject of study was both futile and very beautiful.
