This is a beautiful hand-harvested mellow Flue Cured Virginia leaf with subtle notes of citrus and dried fruit. This tobacco is traditionally used in Canadian, English and American style cigarette blends.
This tobacco is excellent on its own or paired with others, we recommend the Virginia Red Leaf with a hint of Turkish/Oriental to create a pleasant yet flavorful cigarette blend. Lemon is also common in Pipe Tobacco Blends.
Lemon is harvested “pulled” from the second stalk position and possesses a slightly heavier body than cutters with excellent burn quality and moderate flavor qualities.
Whole Leaf Tobacco has this leaf properly dried to eliminate sugar decomposition and slightly re-hydrated shortly before packaging. Rest assured your tobacco will be delivered ready to shred.
Lemon can also be prepared for Shisha/Hookah production with minimal effort. Follow these instructions for Hookah preparation. The result of using Virginia Lemon for Shisha/Hookah will give you a traditional hookah tobacco that offers a medium tobacco flavor.
