Default Gum mastic?



obviously not available here, but does anyone know what mastic tastes like? I Wiki'd it and it's supposed to be some sort of aromatic resin from a tree.

mastic gum isnt bad, i havnt tried it in shisha form, but its a good flavor. Im gonna say the flavor is a little woody, pinelike...its kind of sharp, and its really good. get it if you can, it might prove to be really good

edit: its used a lot in Mediterranean cooking and you can find lots of gum (mastic flavored) in the arab world, not surprised this exists.

you can find mastic in some international/middle eastern food stores.

Has anyone chewed tree sap before? When i was little, I read little house on the prairie, and they did it, so i tried it.. This probably tastes the same.

Mastic comes from greece (we call it mastiha in greek) but it is well know all over middle east. It doesnt taste like anything you probably know but pinelike is probably the best description i read. Personally i am not a big fan of it but many people love it.

I understand from the Egyptian that this stuff is used in soups, coffees and such. Apparently it's very good but I have no idea if the moassel that uses it is any good. I think they don't even import this flavour to Europa.

sounds like something I would dig.
It's good to see a company taking the time to consistently introduce new flavors.
