What is Ceylon?        

Simply it is Sri Lanka. In ancient times, Sri Lanka was known by various names, including Lanka, Lankadeepa or Lakdiva, Tambapanni, Taprobane, Serendib, Zeylan or Seylan and Ceylon, which was the colonial British's name and the official name until 1972, when it was changed to “Sri Lanka”.       

Then what is Ceylon Cinnamon?  

The real or Ceylon cinnamon, Cinnamomum zeylanicum Blume (syn. Cinnamomum verum Berchthold & Presl), and seven additional cinnamon species are native to Sri Lanka. Which means they are naturally restricted or belong exclusively to Sri Lankan geographical area. Due to its chemical composition, excellent quality, established health advantages compared to other cinnamon species, Ceylon cinnamon is quite pricey.   
Sri Lanka has been the world's leading provider of real cinnamon for over seven centuries, and it still has a 90% market dominance. C. zeylanicum was first gathered in the rainforests of Sri Lanka's south-western area, where it was originated.

Cinnamomum is a genus with approximately 250 aromatic species, most of which are found in Asia and Australia. Many of these species have a strong scent and are therefore used as flavorings.             
The most economically significant cinnamon species are,       
1. Ceylon cinnamon ( Cinnamomum zeylanicum Blume) and  
2. Cassia ( Cinnamomum cassia J. Presl)
