Virginia Flue-Cured Tobacco

Virginia flue-cured tobacco was first cultivated in the USA. It is also called ‘bright tobacco’ because of the yellow to orange colour it achieves during curing. It grows particularly well in regions with light rainfall in the USA, Southern Brazil and Zimbabwe. 

GRADES OF LEAF
IN BLENDS

One tobacco plant can produce several grades of leaf.

As the leaves at the top of the plant are more exposed to the sun than the ones at the bottom. Grades are determined by the plant leaf position, its thickness, aroma, graininess and colour (lemon, orange and mahogany) and the quality and maturity of the plant.

The quality of the various grades is determined by the leaf’s ability to withstand manufacturing, as well as its properties, which can result in taste differences, from a harsh experience to a smoother richer taste.

Leaf is bought from growers and sent for threshing, which separates the stem and lamina parts of the leaves. It is sorted by grade and each grade is stored to mature to allow for taste variations in the final product.
