Truth is a filtered form of reality and taste is a distilled version of perfection. Speaking of true taste, mastic is the purest perfection of the most natural ingredients and a real inspiration for something new, something that can be enjoyed by everyone, as a natural gift for health and longevity.
There is an ancient legend; when a wounded man lay down under a tree, the tree started to shred tears for the man’s suffering, as a last gift for his virtuous life. It‘d been already the 3rd century A.D., when this myth became a legend amongst the people of the island of Chios, a majestic island of the western Aegean Sea, land of the mastic trees. Romans, Byzantines, Genovesi, Ottomans and Greeks have collected throughout History those tears, applied them in gastronomy and pharmaceutics, and thus the gift to a single man became an ecumenical gift to the mankind.
The myth became a tradition, the tradition transfigured in a modus vivendi, and the tears of the trees transformed into a miracle ingredient in food, medicine and cosmetics, under the name, Mastic, or Masticha, as a synonym of well-being and longevity. The famous Mastic became the emblem of island of Chios and a romantic ideal to the people who bind their lives to its essence.
