  7. Note: * mastic is a resin obtained from the mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus). Like other natural resins, it is produced in “tears” or droplets. When chewed, the resin softens and becomes a bright white and opaque gum. The flavor is bitter at first, but after some chewing, it releases a refreshing, slightly pine or cedar-like flavor.
