Shirazi Tobacco

'Shirazi' is Turkish-type of tobacco originating from Iran. The leaves tend to be thick and heavy, high in nicotine, and are valued for their rich flavors and aroma.

Historically sun-cured, it is used for cigarette and pipe blends. It is also a variety used in traditional Mu‘assel, meaning "honeyed" in Arabic, or "shisha," which is a syrupy tobacco mix containing molasses and vegetable glycerol which is then smoked in a hookah. It should be noted that some seed merchants have misspelled the name and are selling it as "Sherazi." This is incorrect.
