Well, as Hajo Flettner and myself were discussing yesterday on another thread, about Tunisian shishas and tobaccos, in some countries, particularly in Tunisia, people would wrongly call plain moassel "tombac" or even "Jurak", and its is even printed on 50 gr, boxes. Examples of it would be the brands SHEIKH EL BALAD, or AMBER from the same Tunisian producer. The boxes are labelled TOMBAC (in the case of SHEIKH EL BALAD it is only written in Arabic, but it says "Tombac"; in the case of AMBER TOMBAC, one side of the box is in french the other in arabic).
So You might indeed have thrown away a 50 gram box in which the word TOMBAC was wrongly written to describe what is indeed plain tobacco with molasses.
