Cassia cinnamon comes from the Cinnamomum cassia tree, also called Cinnamomum aromaticum. It originated in Southern China and is also known as Chinese or Siagon cinnamon.

Cassia tends to be a dark brown-red color with thicker sticks and a rougher texture than Ceylon (Sri Lankan) cinnamon. Cassia cinnamon is considered lower quality. It is usually less money. Almost all cinnamon found in supermarkets is the cassia variety. Roughly 95% of its oil is cinnamaldehyde, which gives cassia a very strong, spicy flavour.
