The wrapper is grown from Connecticut seed (CT Shade) without the sun filter, so it’s the darkest CT you’ll likely ever see. It is still a delicate and thin leaf, however. This leaf is dark reddish brown in color, has very few veins, and is silky to the touch.
As with all Whole Leaf Tobacco products, this leaf comes in proper moisture content for working, but additional moisture might be needed to make the wrapper more pliable and elastic for wrapping.
