Candela Leaf is an incredibly rare tobacco leaf, known primarily for its looks! The green color of this leaf is obtained by quickly harvesting, and speed-drying the crop at a high temperature.
The verdant green hue of this tobacco is most commonly associated with its mild, leafy, almost floral taste and sweet, grassy aroma. This wrapper is truly unique in all aspects.
This high temperature, high speed drying process causes the chlorophyll to be trapped in the leaf, giving it the jade color which it is known for. Commonly used on pre-embargo cigars, this leaf is now only commonly found on mass produced machine-made cigars, and some few select high end boutique cigars.
