We are very sorry to say that this very popular hand rolling Tobacco has been withdrawn from the UK market and it is unlikely to return. We have left the listing on our website for historical reference and interest.
Maya Tobacco: Maya tobacco is relatively new to the UK market but it has gone down a storm over the last few years. The Maya Hand rolling tobacco is a quality hand rolling tobacco without the heavy price tag!
Maya Shag Smoking Tobacco: The Maya is blended from superior Virginia tobacco's using traditional production methods for a pure and quality flavour. You will find little evidence of stalk or birdseye in the tobacco, which larger manufacturers leave in to bulk out the tobacco and increase their profits. The natural sweetness in the Virginia is fairly evident in the Maya for a smooth and sweet smoke.
Shag Tobacco: Due to some hand rolling smokers using shag tobacco for hand rolling purposes, HMRC have taken action to stop this abuse of the tobacco taxation. HMRC have defined that any tobacco where the strands are less than 1.5mm will be taxed as a Hand Rolling tobacco. All shag tobacco produced as of January 2011 will be cut above 1.5mm. This is a pipe tobacco and is taxed accordingly. It is a criminal offence to use shag tobacco for hand rolling and we do not endorse this.
Climate Neutral Partner: And to go one step further than the competition the packaging of all Maya tobacco is produced in accordance with Climate Partner for a climate neutral grading.
