Great For Savouries
This is cinnamon, outer bark of the cinnamon tree. Used widely in South Asia in savoury meat dishes, vegetarian and rice dishes for its light smoky earthy flavour than its fragrance. Cinnamon quill is the inner bark of the cinnamon tree. The cinnamon quill are mostly used in sweet dishes for its strong sweet taste and is more fragrant.
Misleading product name
Misleading product name. This is not cinnamon. It's acacia bark and is different from "true" cinnamon quills.
I should have read the reviews before buying!
No fragrance whatsoever, not worth buying. If I could rate this product zero I would.
Be aware - not best quality cinnamon sticks
Big, thick, knarled pieces of old bark with low quality cinnamon flavour. Best to buy proper cinnamon sticks, unless you plan on cooking catering quantities of low budget food. You get what you pay for, and in this case, quantity does not mean quality!
This is not real cinnamon, do not buy. The real cinnamon is curled up and is very fragile, this is hard bark from fake cinnamon.
Product is mis-labelled. This is cassia (chinese cinnamon), not true cinnamon.
Despite being told that this is not cinnamon it is still labelled cinnamon sticks.
Do not buy 1
Poor quality, very little smell of cinnamon. Definitely would not purchase again or recommend !
Tesco, please, this is not cinnamon! It is cassia
Tesco, please, this is not cinnamon! It is cassia, and there is a big difference!!!!
Should not be labelled cinnamon
This is not cinnamon, it is cassia: often called sweet cinnamon
