  Tastes good?

This is common in the islands, many variances depending on which island you are from -- with or without lime, and some leaf. Palauans -- especially on school grounds are not permitted to spit openly. Many are carrying their containers to spit into. You will have to watch that your tongue & teeth do not get too much staining from chewing. It also creates a buzz -- try at your own risk.
