Olivier Rœllinger's words
True cinnamon comes from the bark of the young shoots of Cinnamomum zeylanicum, a large tree of the Lauraceae family. It should not be confused with cassia or Chinese cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia), which is less subtle. They can be told apart by the thickness and color of the bark. Cinnamon is thinner and is a warm yellow-brown, while cassia is thicker and reddish-brown.
