Pure mastic gum, derived from the resin of the mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus), has been highly regarded for centuries due to its unique flavor, medicinal properties, and cultural significance.

Pure mastic gum is known as "tears of Chios"

Mastic gum, also known as the "tears of Chios," is derived primarily from the Greek island of Chios, where the mastic tree flourishes due to the island's specific climate and soil composition. The harvesting process is meticulous, necessitating precise incisions in the tree's bark to release the resin, which then solidifies into transparent droplets known as "tears."
