Blending Tobacco

Each tobacco variety has its own unique characteristics, flavor and taste.

Blending different types of tobacco together can improve taste considerably.

Mixing tobacco together to form a blend is common practice among smokers. There are a number of different reasons for this, but for our purposes, it is a matter of taste. Mixing two types in different proportions can produce maybe six different flavors, but when mixed with a third variety, the permutations are endless.

Some smokers prefer to mix their home grown tobacco with the tobacco they buy in stores. This is okay too, especially if you’re fussy about the taste your after and can’t draw yourself away from your commercial brand.It’s about personal preference and a bit of trial and error.
