Over the years I have kept my loose tobacco the way you would see it at the tobacconist. I place the jars on a shelf in the closet and when I feel a notion for a certain tobacco I take a bowl or two out and seal the jar back up. I know some of those jars sit on the shelf for a decent amount of time and are opened off and on depending on what their customers buy. I haven't had any issues doing things this way with no real over drying problem, I like to let my tobacco get fairly dry anyway. I realize now reading through here I am likely not getting the benefit of the aging process. I don't smoke all that often, usually a few times a week, and it's hard for me to anticipate what I will want to smoke and often change my mind. So my question is, is there anything wrong with continuing to do things the way I have? Or am I doing myself a disservice by not allowing these to stay sealed undisturbed?
