Top 10 Medium Dokha Tobaccos
There is a lot of confusion around which of the top 10 medium Dokha tobaccos are the best, the strongest or who the top 10 medium Dokha suppliers are in the market?
Here we take a brief look at all of those questions on the ‘Top 10 Medium Dokha Tobaccos’:
Firstly, in 2012 the team at Enjoy Dokha travelled extensively in the Middle East to see how Dokha tobacco is grown, cultivated, harvested and bottled. After some considerable deliberation we set out to procure the Dokhas we considered to be the best in the market, both from reliable and renowned suppliers in Dubai but also from local farms stretching from Ras al Khaimah and Fujairah in the UAE to Abu Dhabi and Oman. Now we could we satisfy ourselves that we were bringing quality Dokha tobacco to the UK and European markets.
When comparing Western tobaccos with Middle Eastern tobaccos the comparison is stark. Western tobaccos have lots of additives added to the basic tobacco product – even down to the paper the tobacco is housed in contains bleach! Middle Eastern tobacco (Dokha), on the other hand, is grown naturally in the mountainous regions where the nights are cool and the days are hot and sunny.. The irrigation channels are filled with fresh water and the small tobacco plantations are tended by farmers who have farmed their patches in the same way for generations with nothing added to the tobacco and nothing taken away – just the pure natural, organic tobacco plant thereby retaining its natural colouration and flavour for you to savour more importantly,
The basic Midwakh (Medwakh) used in the smoking of Dokha tobacco is also a very intriguing implement – dating back to the 1400s the Midwakh pipes were simply hand carved pieces of wood. Nowadays they have become so much more sophisticated and can virtually be made from any sturdy material. The design and manufacture of the Midwakh has become an art in itself. Some Midwakh pipes can be designed utilising gold/silver leaf and precious stones – needless to say Enjoy Dokha don’t have any Medwakh pipes at this level in their range but we can get them made if you should be so lucky to win the lottery!
