  Kretek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kreteks or clove cigarettes, are Indonesian cigarettes made with a complex blend of tobacco, cloves and a flavoring 'sauce'.
Kreteks were originally created by Haji Jamahri, a resident of Kudus, Java, Indonesia, in the early 1880's for medicinal purposes as a way to deliver the eugenol in the cloves to the lungs, as it was thought to help asthma.
Kreteks are by far the most widely-smoked form of tobacco in Indonesia, where about ninety percent of smokers usually smoke kreteks instead of plain tobacco, which are called "whites." In the United States, clove cigarettes have been associated with artists and the goth, punk, and indie subcultures.
