Cinnamon ∙ Honey ∙ Eucalyptus ∙ Fernet

Tejpatta, or Indian bay leaves, are a different variety from California bay laurel leaves. They are the leaf of the cassia, or cinnamon tree, and taste of cinnamon too. They are essential to many Indian recipes & masalas, such as garam masala.

  • Grown by the Chowfin family on their forest farm in the mountains of Uttarakhand, your Tejpatta (the leaf of the cinnamomum tamala tree) grows wild alongside cherries, apples, plums, and rhododendron. The leaves are harvested carefully in small batches to prioritize the health of the trees and then dried in a mix of sun and shade to preserve maximum flavor that'll then infuse your stews, curries and pots of beans. Use it just like a bay leaf!
