Note: One of my favorite flavors has always been that of cloves. I special order my favorite chewing gum, Clove (Black Jack Gum is a close second). I'm not alone in my admiration for cloves. It was one of the first spices to be traded. At one time Chinese courtiers were required to have cloves in their mouths before speaking to the emperor to ensure pleasant breath. Cloves were highly valued in ancient Rome. Pliny the Elder once complained that, "there is no year in which India does not drain the Roman Empire of fifty million sesterces." Wars were fought in Europe and with native islanders to secure rights to the profitable Clove business.
