Cinnamon is a small evergreen tree native to tropical southern India and Sri Lanka. There are two kinds of cinnamon. Cinnamomum cassia, and cinnamon zeylanicum. Cinnamomum cassia is stronger and more spicy than cinnamon zeylanicum. Its name comes from the Greek word kassia, meaning "strip off the bark".
There are many ways to enjoy cinnamon. Sprinkle it on French toast, applepie, rice pudding and baked goods. You can also add cinnamon sticks to coffee and teas.
To make your own cinnamon tea pour 1 cup of hot water over a scant 1 teaspoon of cinnamon bark. Let steep, covered, for 10 minutes, then strain before drinking.
Part used: Dried inner bark.
