Samuel Gawith flakes generally are quite moist and will benefit from drying a little before being smoked. When you open the tin leave it open for 30 minutes or so before preparing the flake. You can prepare this flake tobacco in a number of ways:
Folding and stuffing. Fold the flake in half long ways against the grain of the flake. Fold the flake in half again this time with the grain to form a square. Gently squeeze the tobacco before stuffing into the pipe bowl.
Rubbing out. Rub the flake gently between the hands to break up the flake to desired thickness before loading the pipe.
Rolling. Roll the flake with the grain generally lengthwise, squeeze gently and load into the pipe bowl.
Which ever method you use is a question of personal preference but the tobacco is best packed lightly to prevent any draw problems as flake tobacco tends to expand more so than ready rubbed tobaccos. To fully appreciate the flavour and taste we recommend that the mixture is packed loose and smoked at a slow pace to prevent the tobacco burning hot which will impair the taste and aroma, cause the pipe to overheat and potentially causing the dreaded tongue bite.
We carefully weigh and pack all our loose tobacco in a branded non-resealable pouch to ensure that the tobacco arrives with you in perfect condition. Orders for 500g of loose Samuel Gawith Best Brown Flake will be dispatched in the manufacturers original packaging.
