An aroma aged over 50 years.
Grown from 50+ Year Old Clove Trees
50+ year-old clove trees bear buds that are packed with a mature aroma and flavour that only comes with age.
6 Decades of Chemical Free
GREEN ACRES PENANG is located on prime clove-growing land in Balik Pulau, where the first clove tree was planted by the British East India Company in 1794. The orchard has remained chemical-free ever since it was farmed more than 60 years ago.
Each quality clove bud is hand-picked in a labor-intensive process before being sun-dried, with only 10kg produced annually.
Superior Slow Food
Featured in Slow Food’s Ark of Taste 2014 exhibition in Turin, Italy, with its heirloom cloves having a distinct flowery scent and high essential oil content.
Taste the Difference
Distinctively spicy with a woody aroma, making it excellent for masala tea, briyani rice or curry.
Usage of cloves:
- Cloves have antibacterial and antiseptic properties, which is why they were used on British colonial ships to preserve meat during long voyages in an era without refrigeration.
- A natural insect repellent. Place a bag of cloves in your car, closets or drawers and watch the insects disappear! Also removes bad odour.
- Commonly used in dishes such as curries, braised dishes, Biryani rice and masala teas.
