How can I add moisture back to my tobacco?

In the initial stages of tobacco processing, the leaves are put through re-dryers which remove moisture. Later, during the manufacturing phase, an optimal amount of moisture is reintroduced. What significance does this have for you?

Purchasing drier tobacco is economically beneficial because it means you are obtaining more product for the price you pay. If the humidity level of the tobacco you purchase isn't to your liking, there are numerous methods to adjust it, which you can find discussed in tobacco-related online forums and blogs.

It's recommended to use a water-filled mist or spray bottle, ideally with distilled water, to lightly mist your tobacco once it's back in its pouch. Reseal the pouch and allow it to sit for around one hour. You should be able to discern improvements in the texture and flavor of your tobacco after this period. You can repeat this step to achieve your desired humidity level, but be cautious not to over-moisturize as this can lead to further complications. If the tobacco becomes too wet, spread it out on a paper towel to air dry. You can then resume the rehumidification process if necessary.
