Interesting Fact: Cassia is mentioned in the book ‘Pen Ts’ao Ching’ circa 2,700 B.C., then it was known as ‘Kwei’, today the Chinese call cassia ‘gui’ meaning ‘high rank’. The first authenticated record of the use of kwei as a medicine in China was found in the “Ch’u Ssu” or ‘Elegies of Ch’u’ which was written in the 4th century B.C. Cassia is also mentioned in the Ebers Papyrus, a remarkable medical document dated to circa 1,550 B.C.
