Tubing Tobacco is a shag-cut tobacco. Overseas, tubing tobacco is popular, but we find most UK smokers prefer Hand Rolling specific tobacco as the burn rate is slower and cooler. However there is still a large demand for tubing tobacco as it is drier and easier to tube with. The tobacco is manufactured slightly different, which gives it an entirely different flavour to hand rolling tobacco, which some smokers prefer. It's all down to individual tastes.
