Industry knowledge:Cassia barks are a variety of spice very similar to Cinnamon - packed within it is a much more delicate, sweet and spicy flavour. Cassia barks are indigenous to China, where they grow in hundreds of varieties. They can also be found in Java, Sumatra and as far away as Japan, or South America. Amongst these, the most flavourful and pleasant tasting is the variety growing in the Western Tributary of the Pearl River - which is more pungent and has a delicate piquancy to it. It can be distinguished with it's smoother shape and much softer brown shades than other types. Cassia has a rich history, in part due to often being mistaken for Cinnamon. Over 1000 species of Cassia have existed at some time, and while many exist for culinary uses, several are also renowned for uses in systems of traditional medicine. Cassia bark can contain up to 4% oils, which give them their delicate flavour. It is a light demanding tree, slightly shade tolerant when young, preferring cool and wet conditions when older.
