So, I dry out my tobacco before packing my pipe...but I got to wondering if there was a correlation between taste and the moisture levels of tobacco. I think I'm drying it out appropriately...never crunchy, never clingy...but I wondered if I'm sacrificing something by doing so.
Is there a tradeoff by drying the tobacco out so that it provides an easier smoking experience? Will a tobacco with a higher concentration of moisture provide a more tasty smoke at the risk of becoming wet and bitey? Is it worth smoking a "wetter" tobacco and having a higher maintenance type of experience?
Just wondering what the thoughts on this were from the forum.
