Home-made Chimo

Since I only had a small amount of green leaves this year, I decided to try my hand at making Chimo.

This product is nearly impossible to order anymore so it was high-time I got busy on a recipe.

The basics involve boiling your green leaves, straining them, adding a little sweetener and cocoa and cooking down to a paste.

Here's some photos along the way:

    @cobguy I will try to contact him again tonight. Sounds like he has a temporary liscence to sell here. I will try to find out more later.
  • Bravo! Looks like true Venezuelan. I imagine it was a lengthy procedure, tho.

  • Thanks @RS422, I sent an email as well.

    @volunge, Thanks!
    It wasn't too bad since a lot of the time was just simmering. 
    I could see doing this outside over a fire with really large kettles.  :)

    Is this how other products like 6P's Shammah Afghani are made too?
  • @ar47 nope. Entirely different products and processes.
  • @ar47 chimo is essentially reduced tobacco tea, products like shammah afghani are made similiar to naswar, shown in video below. Anyone please correct me if I'm mistaken.


  • That's a really cool video!  

    With Makla / Shammah, etc, the leaf itself is used like in snus / dip.
    It's not uncommon for Makla to only contain 35% tobacco and the rest additives.
    As rostanf said, Chimo is more of a boiled down tea and contains very few adulterants.

    2._ We were working to ship by sea, we had to let authorities know but the goverment got the company under investigation becouse they tougth there are billions of USD behind it. Now they let off the company.
    3._ We found the way to continue still passing the Colombia frontier, but the cost are increase than ever, but is the only way to send the product for now
    We have now more than 100 dozen in US available for the older orders and new orders but we can

    We have now more than 100 dozen in US available for the older orders and new orders but we cant sell in the web page, we are delegating the point of sales to a distribuitor with ATF and FDA, you can write to franciscosalvatore@hotmail.com to ask prices and shipping. The older orders will be shipped next week.

  • Thanks @RS422!   :)>-

    I'd love to try some of this but the whole shipping/smuggling situation is too complicated for my simple life :)

  • @ar47, once it's all settled I'll get some to you!  :)>-

    I'm actually really used to this kind of "activity".  LOL
