This Wuyi Mountain rock oolong is named Rou Gui or cassia, because the tea's famous fragrance has some similarities with the spicy bark of the cassia tree (an East-Asian derivative of cinnamon). These are mostly undertones of flavour. This is still a Wuyi Mountain oolong, and should not be confused with herbal teas flavoured with real cinnamon!
