    Question about herbs

    Sometimes the herbs I see (in bottles) are green and at other times they are brown. I'm assuming green is better, but am I wrong?

    Green is better. Brown means they are older, have faded or weren't processed well to start with.

    Thanks herbgeek. That's what I was thinking, but wasn't sure.

    Cinnamon should be brown. Green is not good.

    In my little world, cinnamon is a spice, not an herb.

    Lol, I was thinking of the dried, curled stick kind, but yes, it’s a spice. I was just being silly.

    If it were furry, would it be an herb?
