Rapé – Tres Ervas
$2.25 – $63.00
A new and very Fresh batch of Tres Ervas. The last years one of the developments in the making of rapé is to use more than one ash variety in a single snuff.
This Tres Ervas Rapé comes from a community of dear friends in Brazil that I have been working together with for many years. Tres Ervas means three Herbs. Organic Tobacco, Pau Pereira and Parika ash combined with Alfavaca (Basil), Copaiba and Emburana (Amburana cearensis) make this a quite aromatic and strong Rapé.
Traditionally Rapé is administered through a pipe made out of bamboo or bone. The Tepi is a blowpipe that you can use to administer another person. When receiving Rapé the other blows it through both nostrils. In general, the shape of the Tepi is straight, curved or V-shaped. A different form is self-administration. For this, you use a Kuripe. The Kuripe has a V- shape and connects the mouth to the nostril. In this case, you blow the Rapé to yourself.
I sieve this Tres Ervas Rapé and all other Rapé coming from my shop through a 120-micron high-grade stainless steel mesh. This makes an extremely fine powder. It’s labor-intensive but guarantees a consistent fineness, cleanness and optimal absorption of the Snuff. I store the Rapé stock dry and in vacuum containers to prolong freshness and quality.
