Latakia is also a style of fpipe tobacco cured over a hardwood fire which originally came from the city of the same name. These most of it comes from Cyrus or North Africa but the real deal is still around. Usually people don't smoke it straight but in a Balkan or English style blend. It is used in some old fashioned moassels but that is pretty rare these days.
