There are more than 250 species of the cinnamon tree. Native to Sri Lanka, records of the tree date back to 2800 BCE. Cinnamon is believed to be one of oldest and most-used spices in mankind’s history. It was extremely prized in ancient China and Egypt. Possession and use of cinnamon during this time meant you were wealthy, as its worth was equivalent to gold, and it was very hard to acquire. In the 15th century, finding cinnamon and other spices was one of the reasons why the exploration of the globe began.
