Kretek

Kretek are cigarettes made with a blend of tobacco, cloves and other flavours. This clove-infused cigarette was created in the town of Kudus, Central Java, in the late nineteenth century. What was once a small-scale cottage industry has grown over the course of more than 100 years into one of the largest contributors to the Indonesian economy, second only to oil and gas.
