Pinch Test (Pipe Tobacco)
Take a small clump of Pipe Tobacco between the thumb and forefinger and gently squeeze it together. If it makes a ""crackle"" sound or breaks, it is probably too dry to smoke and definitely too dry for storage/aging. If it sticks together for more than a few seconds it is too moist for smoking and probably too humid for storage/aging.
