Saigon Cinnamon Chips
Native to Vietnam and still grown there exclusively, this cassia is thought by many to be the best. Cassia is what we here in the States commonly known as cinnamon. But in reality, “true” cinnamon is the bark of a cinnamon tree, whereas what we know as cinnamon is the bark of a cassia tree. We crack Saigon in small batches weekly to ensure freshness.
The unmatched flavor of Vietnamese Saigon cassia is stronger and sweeter than your best store bought cinnamon. The bark is thicker and darker than Indonesian cassia, producing a rich dark brown cinnamon. These chips are perfect for flavoring drinks or for grinding your own fresh and potent cinnamon.
