This tobacco is Flue Cured like most Virginia type tobacco. Taken as a First Priming, the leaves are harvested from the lowest part of the plant (exposed to the least amount of sunlight). This results in a thinner leaf that burns easy and provides a very smooth taste when used in a cigarette.
This tobacco is also often used in pipe blends. This is a great tobacco to blend with others to assist in the burning process and is hand harvested to assure the finest quality available. This product can also be used as a shisha/hookah tobacco.
Here are instructions on how to process Virginia thin leaf as Shisha tobacco. Using ( First Priming ) will give you the most traditional Hookah tobacco with a moderate tobacco flavor.

Love the Thinleaf just as is. If you find using a different leaf is a bit sharp, just add thinleaf to tone it down. It’s definitely thin so you need to work through the bundle rather quick before it’s crumbly.
The season was affected by a hurricane and leaves we’re damages, they add a few ounces to the pound in case there are losses. The pounds even have a notice attached to let you all know how they may be. That’s pretty straight up!!

Nice leaf. Was a little low in case upon opening the pack, but placed it in humidor for a day or two and it came right into medium case. Processed fine, no problem. This is indeed thin, but good mild VA flavor and useful to balance out burn rates with thicker virginias. As noted, there was a label on the bag that stated the season was hurricane affected and a couple extra ounces were included (they were) at no charge to compensate for deleterious leaf. I didn’t find any unusable in the half bunch I processed so far. Classy.

This is a really nice, mild, smooth and easy burning leaf. Makes a great smoke all by itself. This will be great for blending.
If you like flue cured or if you just need to tone down a mix or just add that little something extra this is a must have.
Mine arrived in perfect case.
Arrived in low to medium case, workable. Light Virginia aroma, sweet. Thin yet durable leaf. The leaves I pulled for evaluation were fairly blemish free. Could easily be used to roll a bidi. Light bodied smoke, crisp and smooth. Nice throat hit. Pleasant neutral aroma. No nasal irritation. Very clean smoker, very little after taste, mild bite. Good straight smoker, just roll and go.
