The highest quality most sought after tobacco leaf used in hookah tobacco is grown in France and Germany. Their moist cool summers, and sandy nutrient rich soil results in a tobacco leaf that is light in natural flavor, nicotine, and smell. This tobacco is rare, expensive, and in short supply. We’ve tested and sampled tobacco leaf grown around the world including the United States, Poland, Canada, Thailand, and China but German tobacco leaf always wins.
In order to meet our increasing demand for this hard to find tobacco leaf Social Smoke cut out the middle men and contracted directly with German farmers. Careful research and consultation with agricultural scientists went into selecting the perfect tobacco seed variety. Once fully grown and harvested, we cure the leaf in large barns for a few weeks, then carefully strip the tobacco of all stems and cut the leaves to the specified size for our blend.
