Alex wasn't interested in the cinnamon stick that arrived with his tea, so I've been munching on it. Thanks to mrbigsteve and his advice to watch "Good Eats" on the Food Network, I now know that what we generally call cinnamon really isn't. If memory serves, it's really cassia bark. Cinnamon bark would be too big for a cute little curl of it to come with a cup of tea. Except maybe a really big cup.
