Some news on the Khansar front. I did manage to make it to the city and I found that that domestic stockpiles of locally grown leaf are way down do to a new focus on exports by the leading tobacco producers and the state. Luckily, I think i'll be able to wrangle something up.

That's because I ran into a local local Jewish community (yes, they have a good sized Jewish community Iran and they even have a language taught in the schools here called Judeo-Khunsari) leader wile fulfilling some management type obligations at a facility in town. Turns out that he's a big fan of tobacco lore and he'll look into things for me. I also think I should be able to lay my grubby little mitts on some highly regarded moassel from the Alwaite mountains in Syria since a guy I work from time to time has a lot of contacts there so I think i'll dig up something for a handful of HPers.

Anyway, the Jewish fellow I mentioned earlier makes his own moassel which he bakes in an oven that looks like the beehive ovens you see South West Indians in the U.S. use to cook bread. He uses wood fires and some sort of nut extract the flavour the tobacco which reminded me pinon nut with a vry earthy flavour and super heavy smoke texture.

Anyway, within a week or so i'll know what I can get and pretty soon it's back to Syria and my first trip up into the Alwaite mountains.

Sounds interestingly good. Pretty cool what you can find and what kind of people you run into.

Pretty cool deal Hajo, I hope you are able to get your hands on some. I would love to spend a day sitting with a guy while he cooks up his own moassel, how cool would that be!

It was cool to see moassel baking in a beehive oven since it reminded me of New Mexico and that Indian bread they have there. The homemade moassel was really good and another indication that the mass produced stuff really falls short of what it could be.

Anyway, I'm in Al-Qamishli which is a city in the Al-Hasakah governorate in Syria and it looks gorgeous from what little i've seen of it. I have a nice room in a tiny hotel near the near the local airport. My friend Na'eema is in town which is great and she'll definitely be able to hook me up with some great moassel. HPers no fear! I'll get something super groovy to share. I suspect about a kilo or so worth.
