Also known as Chinese cassia, or ròu gùi in Chinese, this species of cinnamon is typically sold as quills (sticks) because the bark is thicker and harder than other varieties.

Whole 10" cinnamon sticks for drinks and cooking are the perfect finishing touch to add to a simmering pot of spiced hot cider or mulled wine.

what else you should know

cinnamon sticks

Cinnamon bark is obtained from an evergreen tree that is native to China and now widely cultivated in India, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam and other locations in southeastern Asia. The botanical genus and common name for this member of the laurel family is adapted from the Latin canna which translates to "cane" or "reed" and is a reference to the manner in which the bark curls as it dries.

In the west, cinnamon is commonly used as a baking spice and flavoring for beverages. However, because the bark of C. cassia is thicker than other species of cinnamon, it would not be wise to attempt to grind whole sticks at home in a spice grinder. Instead, plan to use the whole quills to flavor braised foods and simmering liquids. Whole 10" cinnamon sticks can also be infused in gin or vodka, alone or in combination with other spices.
