Cinnamomum Cassia, better known as cinnamon cassia, is a spice that grows on the cinnamon tree, a tree that, as an adult, can grow up to 50 feet tall.
The cassia cinnamon is in fact the inner layer of the bark of the cinnamon tree, which, as it dries, curls up on itself to give the cinnamon "sticks" as we know them.
The cassia cinnamon tree is part of the Lauraceae family. It is found in the wild forests of South Asia: Indonesia, India... With its evergreen foliage, it is recognizable by its typical and powerful bark smell
To harvest cassia cinnamon, it is important to wait until the stems of the cinnamon tree are full of sap. This is why cinnamon is harvested in the spring, during the period of heavy rains.
The grower works the bark with an unsharpened blade. He makes circular gestures on the trunk to detach the bark from the tree.
As it dries, the bark folds back on itself until it forms rolls. During this phase, the cinnamon develops its sweet aromas. To obtain powdered cinnamon, you must wait until the rolls are dry before grinding them.
