Chinese Cinnamon- Known as one of the 50 fundamental herbs of traditional Chinese medicine, *Cassia cinnamon is referred to as kwei-shi in many Chinese dialects. The capital of Guangxi Province is named Kweilin after the spice. It was given the name in 216 BCE by Qin Shihuangdi, the Qin Dynasty’s first emperor.* This spice is sold in powder or bark form as a neat quill or sticks. At one time in the past, it was worth more than its weight in gold.

In exchange for the meal, they would bring down the cinnamon bark. Currently, you can find it at your nearest Aurora’s. No ox meat or mountains required.
