Teabacco, as its name suggests, is produced from the leaves of Camellia sinensis, more commonly known as the tea plant. Teabacco is normally smoked out of a shisha (hookah or argileh) and is best known for its superior flavours and as an alternative to tobacco. The search for a non-tobacco based shisha led Heaven Leaf to the tea leaf — it had the most similar texture, feel, and smoking characteristics to tobacco but without all the artificial and carcinogenic additives.
The main difference between teabacco and tobacco is that tobacco contains the highly addictive stimulant nicotine, whereas teabacco doesn't. It is believed that high-quality teabacco such as Heaven Leaf teabacco, which is made from 100% all-natural black tea leaves, releases significantly less carcinogenic chemicals than tobacco when smoked. Another difference is that Heaven Leaf teabacco contains 100% natural sugar syrup, which doesn’t mask the teabacco flavours or have a burnt taste like regular honey and molasses found in mu’assel (shisha tobacco). All in all, teabacco offers lighter and smoother flavours, more smoke, is less throaty-feeling, and offers a longer smoking session overall when compared to smoking tobacco.
As well as being an alternative to smoking tobacco, teabacco offers more natural flavouring options than tobacco. Heaven Leaf teabacco combines OP grade black tea leaves sourced from Ceylon with the actual extracts of flavours to create a lighter, unique taste when smoked. Using the actual extracts (instead of artificially-produced chemical flavouring) allows many subtle flavours to emerge while smoking.
There are the traditional flavours including double apple (anise apple), watermelon, lemon, and mint; and then there are more exotic teabacco flavours such as bubble gum, cheesecake fudge, cotton candy, maple pancake, and pina colada. The beauty of teabacco is that there is a flavour for everyone. With all the natural goodness of black tea leaves, our teabacco is designed to deliver the best natural flavours to enhance your shisha smoking experience. With over 30 flavours available, there's sure to be a flavour or two to suit your taste palate. Whether you are new to shisha and teabacco or you are a seasoned shisha smoker, the vast number of flavours available in our range offers you days, months and even years of incredible variety.
Teabacco is specifically designed to be smoked through a hookah. The method of smoking shisha is simple and offers a range of benefits over traditional smoking or vaping. If you choose to use a hookah, there is nowhere near as much second-hand smoke as with other smoking methods, which makes it more suitable for indoor smoking sessions. There are no unpleasant smells released when smoking shisha, especially if you are choosing to smoke some of the more heavily scented teabacco products, in fact, the odours emitted when you smoke shisha can be surprisingly pleasant.
Shisha can also be more discreet than traditional forms of smoking and is a much more sociable activity that can be shared with friends in a relaxed setting. A shisha smoking session is much more fun than simply standing in a cloud of cigarette smoke with others, and it lasts much longer than a typical cigarette which is done in around 20 puffs or so. If you are in the market for a new hookah (shisha device), we offer a wide variety of complete shisha kits in our online store for you to choose from.
The best shisha coal is a highly debated aspect amongst avid shisha smokers. If you choose to smoke natural flavours such as those offered by our teabacco range, it is always a nice complement to use natural coal. With the option of coconut coal, shisha smokers can enjoy an all-around natural experience with friends. Coconut coal does not emit as much flavour as its counterparts, which means that the flavours of your teabacco selection will be better preserved.
Teabacco is made by combining processed tea leaves with sugar syrup, flavouring, and vegetable glycerine to produce a nice thick smoke. By avoiding artificial and carcinogenic additives, teabacco is an alternative to smoking tobacco. Teabacco is not intended to be consumed like regular tea. Although teabacco doesn't contain tobacco or the many associated artificial and carcinogenic additives, smoking, in general, poses its own health risks. For more information on the effects of smoking tobacco and tobacco-related products, please consult a doctor or health professional.
