Harvesting details

Our farmer's clove grove was planted by his grandfather in the early 70's. By now, these sturdy trees stand surrounded by tropical rainforest with no need for fertilizer or any other chemical. As a third-generation farmer, he continues to harvest his completely organic clove trees by hand.

Around the time of the harvesting season, which is once a year every year around January, he keeps his eyes peeled for just the precise time to pick the buds. When they are about to bloom but haven't started opening petals yet is the moment the natural oils in cloves are at its optimum flavor and aroma. A day too late and the flavors may have changed as the petals open.

Before laying out the harvest in the topical sun to dry naturally and gain its dark-chocolate color, it goes through a manual inspection to separate buds that are completely closed from those that have started to open.

Special

I have purchased many different cloves previously, but non of them matched the subtle, complex aromas of these. They are highly perfumed without overwhelming power that cloves tend to be, stunningly balanced. By far, the best i have experienced.
