Hookah tobacco: how and who produces it

Tobacco in a hookah plays an important role. After all, no matter how expensive and high-quality the smoking apparatus itself was, if tobacco is not suitable, then the pleasure from smoking will be doubtful. Hookah tobaccos, or smoking mixtures, which can be found on store shelves, although they have a huge variety of flavors and varieties, are conditionally divided into groups:

30% tobacco - 70% honey;
100% tobacco;
A mixture of the first two.
Golden Virginia is the tobacco base for most of the major brands. In addition to directly dried leaves and honey (it can be replaced with molasses), the following are added to the smoking mixture:

Congestion aroma (sometimes real dried fruit);
Manufacturing process
The technology of making a hookah mix has not changed for many years. In different companies, the process itself is not much different, the only difference is in the set of raw materials and the proportions of ingredients.

First step. At the very beginning, the tobacco leaves are finely chopped and soaked for up to five days. The effective strength depends on the number of days; the longer, the less it is. Soaking in distilled water also removes tar from the tobacco. The final indicators of the content of tar and nicotine must be indicated on the package.

Second phase. The next step is to leave the soaked tobacco leaves soaked in syrup (molasses or honey). Up to five days are also allocated for this. After the tobacco is squeezed out of excess and added to it flavors and glycerin. The latter is necessary to increase the shelf life of the product.

Stage three. Drying. After the second soaking procedure, the mixture is aged for a few more days before being packaged.
