That's actually true cinnamon--most of what's sold as cinnamon in this country is cassia bark, which, as you can see, is much easier to deal with :D

Wow, This one is really gigantic. I have never thought it can be this big.


I thought cinnamon is true cinnamon and cassia bark is the coarser and thicker variety?


That's awesome! Great find!


from what I've seen, cassia doesn't seem to look like this exactly – it seems to have a less flaky bark. This one looks exactly like the cinnamon trees they grow in Sri Lanka. They are whole trunks of cinnamon, it's quite a site!
