On the Isle of Chios a magical tree grows. From those roots sprout the stems that cry the tears that form the crystals we call mastic. When the sun starts to go down the music starts to play there is nothing better than a cool long drink to open up the appetite and relax the mind.. Fresh, cool, and quenching, it’s the distillation of that feeling when the sun starts to go down and the cool breeze comes in off the Aegean. The magical time for friends, food, family, and run, the roots.
