What is Mastiha?
In the East Aegean Sea, somewhere in the crossroad between East and West, in the island of Chios, mastiha, a product of legend, is being planted since antiquity, connected with traditions, historical events and cultural exchanges, arriving untouched till nowadays, sculpted with the culture of the Eastern Mediterranean, more powerful than ever thanks to its scientifically proven beneficial and therapeutic unique properties.
Chios Mastiha is the name of a resinous sap produced from the mastic tree (Pistacia Lentiscus var. Chia). It is a natural, aromatic resin in teardrop shape that falls on the ground in drops from superficial scratches induced by cultivators on the tree’s trunk and main branches with sharp tools.
The know-how of cultivating Mastiha has been included by UNESCO on its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
