Saigon Cracked Cassia Cinnamon


From the heart of Vietnam emerges a spice that has captivated both chefs and culinary enthusiasts alike: the Saigon Cracked Cassia Cinnamon. This variety, distinct from its powdered counterpart, offers a depth of flavor that's both intense and unparalleled. Its high volatile oil content, more than 5%, which is rare for cinnamon, makes the bark extremely potent. The best cassia bark is harvested near the base of mature trees. When you think of cinnamon, the richness of Saigon's cassia variant, especially in its cracked form, sets a gold standard in the world of spices. Its bold and spicy notes, coupled with an underlying sweetness, make it a favorite for those seeking an authentic and robust cinnamon experience. Also available in Ground Saigon Cinnamon.

The Spice House


Spicy and sweet, this cinnamon is our most popular varietal. Saigon Cassia Cinnamon has an especially high volatile oil content, often higher than 5%, making the bark extremely potent. This is a rarity among cinnamons and a reason why this varietal is one of our best sellers. We grind Vietnamese Cinnamon bark in house. It produces a dark, rich cinnamon with quite a bit of spiciness.

Saigon Cracked Cassia Cinnamon stands out not just in flavor but also in its appearance. The cracked texture, as opposed to the finely ground or the whole bark form, allows for a quick release of its aromatic oils when introduced to dishes. This ensures that every dish it touches turns into a fragrant masterpiece. Whether it's a simmering pot of pho, a comforting bowl of oatmeal, or a batch of freshly baked cookies, the inclusion of this cinnamon promises an explosion of flavors. This cracked version is ideal for mulling cider or wine, or steeping with ground coffee.

In the realm of spices, while many offer flavor, few promise an experience. Saigon Cracked Cassia Cinnamon does both. It's not merely a spice; it's a journey to the bustling streets of Saigon, a trip through lush Vietnamese landscapes, and an exploration of culinary history.

Robust flavor

Love the Saigon cinnamon pieces…I add this (tea ball) to make my hibiscus tea…it adds a spicy flavor and a smoky kick that mellows the hibiscus. A great blood pressure management routine...

Cracked cinnamon

Great solution for adding to brewing coffee without a film on top.

Necessary Spice

We’ve been adding Saigon cracked cinnamon pieces to our coffee every morning for years. It only takes a small amount added to the grounds in the filter basket to really enhance a cup of coffee with the wonderful aroma of the spice as well as the flavor of cinnamon.
We tried other brands but the cracked cinnamon from The Spice House is the absolute best. We’ll never use any other brand.

Cracked Cinnamon rocks!

I use it every morning, just a bit, sprinkled in the bottom of my coffee filter. That hint of fresh cinnamon makes every good cup of coffee better.
