History of Clove
Clove trees originate in Indonesia, although Madagascar and Tanzania have dominated the export of Clove for many years. The clove tree is evergreen and the clove plant has a reddish-brown color.
Clove had an important role in the early spice trade along with nutmeg, pepper, and mace. Cloves were mainly used for medicine and were even put directly on the gums for toothaches and many other dental problems.
During the Han dynasty of China from 207 BC to 220 AD, anyone who wished to speak to the king had to put cloves directly into their mouths while speaking to the king to improve the smell of their breath. This included the higher-ranking citizens and people of the court.
