VARIETAL FAMILIES: ORIENTAL

Oriental tobaccos constitute one of the most unique light tobacco varietal families in the world. They are typically primed, sun-cured, fermented, and produce small leaves which are low in sugar and nicotine content. Sun-curing, which takes between a few days to a few weeks, will produce a brighter, more yellow-like leaf. Oriental tobaccos are mostly grown in southern Europe and the Middle East; they do not need the same rich, loamy soils required for dark air-cured (cigar) tobaccos. The Oriental plant and its leaves are distinguished by their relatively small size, which produces the fragrant yet dry flavor profiles they are prized for (smaller leaf = higher aroma). Oriental tobaccos are often fermented after being cured, in order to develop their flavor and release their impurities and acidity.

Oriental tobaccos are used extensively in "Turkish" and European cigarettes, but the best leaves/plants are grown for pipe tobaccos.
