    Production Details

    The Cassia Sticks are made by cutting Cassia Barks stripped from the main stems of Cassia trees into small pieces, which are later rolled into small tubes like cigarettesthis is the reason why some people call them Cigarette Cassia.  The harvest season of Cassia Barks is from March to June each year. The source of our Cassia Barks is from audited supplier from Guangxi—one of the leading growing areas in China.  Since our audited suppliers grow their Cassia trees on hills with low heavy metals, managing the application of pesticides as per our supervision, our Cassia Sticks are free from pollution of pesticide residues and contains low content of heavy metals, both in conformity with EU and USA standards.

    In making Cassia Sticks (Cigarette Cassia), barks of the right thickness--say about 1.5 mm-- must be chosen. If the bark is too thick, the tubes of Cassia Sticks will be too big; too thin, however, with ugly shape.

    As for scraping of the superficial skin of the Cassia Barks, it can be done either by hands or with machines.   If you want a Cassia Stick with good shape, manual scraping is required.   As you may know, in machine scraping, since the barks receive too high pressure, many small tubes will be out of shape more or less.

    Usually Cassia Sticks are dried in the sunshine.   After being exposed to the sunshine for about two hours, small pieces of the Cassia Barks cut into about 3.6cm wide will be soft and naturally form the shape of small tubes like cigarettes.  In order to guarantee good shape, workers need to adjust the shape manually when the tubes are still soft.   

    It's very clear from the above description that labor charges in making the Cassia Sticks is very high-- much higher than the cost of the materials themselves.

    Our annual output of Cassia Sticks is about 300 tons.

    Our Cassia Sticks are mainly exported to EU, USA, Japan, Middle East and South Korea. If you have any demand, please feel free to contact us at any time.
