This blend is based on a larger quantity of Oriental, known for its delicious, gentle yet aromatic spicy aromas. A little smoky Latakia, a pinch Black Cavendish and Virginia perfect this medium-strong Mixture in a harmonious way.
The Tree Mixture is a uniform light-, medium- and black-brown Loose Cut of rather longer cut. From the round tin rises a sweet plum fragrance with the aroma of smoked ham delicate in the background, which betrays the contained Latakia. The cover sheet in the tin is wavy, but the tobacco is not too moist, even if the firm compression would suggest this.
The Tree Mixture is easy to plug. It should be plugged more firmer than too easily, as otherwise no good puff will arise during the later smoking.
The Tree Mixture requires only one flame to maintain an even glow. Maybe smooth the surface and that's it.
The Tree Mixture is smoky and tart-spicy. Combined with roasted aromas is also a subliminal sweetness to taste, which is probably due to the Black Canvendish; But the smoke is dominated by the fresh note of Latakia, which is reminiscent of incense. Overall, the tobacco thus actually makes the gentle impression promised by the manufacturer. The remaining medium gray ash and almost no condensate make the subsequent cleaning as uncomplicated as the entire smoking.
The smell in the room after smoking the Tree Mixture is not so strong as that of some other English Mixtures, but clearly reveals the content of Oriental and Latakia, so the tobacco is less suitable for social events. In the fresh air and in like-minded society, however, it should not be regarded as disturbing.
The Tree Mixture is a loose cut in all brown tones and is characterized by its clear aromas between smokiness, roasted notes and Latakia. With its moderate strength and its simplicity it is adressed to lovers of the English direction, who are looking for an honest tobacco without paraphernalia and trouble making. Even beginners should not be overwhelmed by this easy, but not simple, tobacco.
