What are Cloves?

Cloves are aromatic flower buds that come from the clove tree. They are commonly used as a spice for their strong, aromatic flavor in both sweet and savory food applications.

Cloves are often used to flavor hot beverages such as chai tea, mulled wine, and spiced cider. They can also be used to infuse flavor into cocktails and mocktails.

They are a key ingredient in various spice blends such as garam masala, pumpkin spice, and Chinese five-spice powder.
