  1. Cinnamon is basically tasty bark powder.
    It is primarily made of cellulose and lignin,and these substances do not dissolve in water,however,they do swell up; which is why it’s a good idea to use an intact cinnamon stick in tea or coffee for flavoring..unless you are sprinkling a bit on the top. Too much cinnamon powder turns to thick slime in hot liquids (even the bark quill will swell up,but at least you can remove it.)

  2. it’s a plant material—bark stripped from trees in the Cinnamomum genus, dried and usually ground to powder. most of the actual substance of cinnamon is therefore going to be cellulose, lignins, and other insoluble organic polymers that make up most plant materials, especially anything that’s “woody” in character, like the bark from a tree. ~Alyx

  3. Cinnamon is hard to keep wet, let alone dissolve. Even when you sprinkle some into an egg mixture for your French toast you will see it clumping back together and floating on top.
    Cinnamon is hydrophobic.
    It is the inner bark of a tree.
    Historically many kinds of tree bark has been used all over the world to provide shelter from rain because of this common attribute.
