Default Re: Smoking Mint Leaves?

Straight mint in a pipe is none too pleasant. Natural mint is not what mint tobacco tastes like. They taste like mint extract. Natural mint leaves are used in smoking blends to add a bit of a cooling flavor and another layer of complexity to the smoke. Alone they taste like tea and are harsh on the lungs and sinuses. Mixed with mullein, raspberry leaf, lavender and a couple other flavoring components they can be part of a pleasant smoke.

Do not expect this to be anything like smoking shisha tobacco. I do not suggest you try it.
