Our Ecuadorian CT Shade Wrapper Tobacco is a thin, light but well-sized shade leaf. Light and airy hints of an earthy aroma lend this leaf its great adaptability for all applications. Veins on this leaf are very thin. This leaf is grown from the same seed as its better known sister, the Connecticut Shade Wrapper. Check out the Ecuadorian Sumatra Wrapper for a comparable leaf.
The Ecuadorian CT Shade Wrapper has a very similar texture to our Ecuadorian Sumatra Wrapper, Ecuadorian Cuban Seed Seco Wrapper. Although this leaf is ver similar in coloring to our Nicaraguan Rosada Wrapper, the Nicaraguan Rosada Wrapper is a bit heavier and more powerful.
As with all of our retail sales, these leaves are unbound. If you’d prefer your order to be untouched and bound together in ‘hands’ by the farmer, we’re happy to accommodate you. Just let us know. Large and wholesale orders are shipped in bound ‘hands’ of tobacco.
