Our CT Shade Leaf has a great earth brown / tan color, and is velvety and thin, which is what is to be expected in high quality Shade Tobacco. Carries a fresh, yet earthy tone musk with a top note of spice. When moistened, it is a very thin and pliable leaf.
The wait is finally over! Leaf Only once again offers Premium Connecticut Shade Tobacco for your enjoyment. Premium CT Shade Leaf is often difficult to find because many of the larger purchasers will buy out the farms entire crop even before they grow it!
Handle with great care, moisten with a sponge as to not damage the leaf. This leaf is small veined, so there is no need to roll out. As a wrapper it is mellow, but firm as a top note. Loud, yet distinctive. Light when first lit, getting bolder with each puff. This medium Connecticut Shade Leaf is something that is not easily found for retail purchasing. Considered the rolling paper of tobacco. Allow up to 10% per pound waste. Enjoy this wonderful cigar wrapper leaf while it lasts!
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"I am really impressed with the quality, freshness, and varieties available to me through Leafonly.com. Not only am I smoking less daily as a result of a better choice for my habit. I am enjoying blending, processing, and smoking my final result. Like a fine wine, brandy, or cognac that is precisely how I would describe my tobacco. Canadian organic flue cured to The robust St James Perique. I Went from two packs a day American Spirits to ten of my "designer" cigs. I am using a recycled pasta cutter. The spaghetti cutter is working great to process the leaves, the moisture content of the leaves upon arrival was perfect, I guess around 18%. Cut, gentle toss and its perfect for smoke. I even rolled a few cigarillos with my blend using the St James Perique as a wrapper. Successfully! Thank you, I do look forward to trying more variety as time goes on.
