Hi,
We do 2 types of Cinnamon, well actually 3. The below are our assumptions....
Cinnamon Bark - Cassia
Cinnamon Sticks - Cinnamon is our guess but not sure.....
Cinnamon powder - Made from either of the above, don't know which.
Not much help :)

Hello

can you please tell me what cinnamon do you sell? Is it Cinnamon zeylanicum (true cinnamon)? Is it C. cassia? You have no idea? ;-)

Litoria caerulea

Esta 'rã azul' (de caerulea) não podia ser mais verde.
Porquê, então o nome?

White, na descrição, pintou-a muito verdinha mas durante a viagem (Austrália-Inglaterra) a Química achou que em azul ficava mais bonita.
Fascinante, se fosse verdade!
De facto "There is also a blue color form that is blue or teal instead of green."

e a história perde a graça.

Quem gosta de histórias pode consultar a porcaria da Wikipédia; quem gosta de factos, não.
