So, what is chinese cinnamon?

Chinese cinnamon, also known as cassia, is a highly aromatic spice commonly used in Chinese and Southeast Asian cuisine. The inner bark of the cassia tree is harvested and dried, producing long, thick quills with a reddish-brown hue and a slightly rough texture. The flavor profile of Chinese cinnamon is warm, sweet, and slightly spicy, with notes of clove and nutmeg. It is often used in savory dishes, such as curries and stir-fries, as well as in sweet dishes like baked goods and desserts. In traditional Chinese medicine, cassia is believed to have warming and healing properties, and is used to treat digestive issues and improve circulation.
