Cinnamon Basil is blends the distinctive flavor of Italian Basil (aka sweet basil) with a hint of cinnamon. The natural presence of cinnamate, the same compound found in cinnamon & cassia that provides much of their aroma and flavor, is responsible for the cinnamon flavor. The micro and petite green form of this plant, offers more tender leaves but a full, clear flavor. It can be used as a garnish with a wide variety of foods including those that naturally pair well with basil. In Mexico, where cinnamon basil is originally from, it’s often used with fruit flavors.
