South african snuff from South Africa

Is there any online shop from SA selling snuff? Shipping to EU

    Regrettably, not a single one. I would look for SA-based Snuffhouse member and offer a trade/snuff swap.

    Some SA snuffs can be procured cheaper from (worldwide shipping).
  • Ive seen a few uk shops selling online but shipping expensive or uk only
  • @volunge Yes but the shipping was very expensive

    A deal-breaker then. I think would ship a roll to Europe (EU states) for less than 5 GBP.

    You can easily make your own coarse moist strong snuff. It's the cheapest way. And very satisfying. Takes just a couple of days, you don't even need to age it, actually (though you certainly can age it for some months, if you have patience). Use mortar and pestle, tea mesh strainer and digital precision scales. Sodium and potassium carbonates are really cheap and widely available. And I can bet you already have salt in your kitchen. Raw tobacco can be procured from, shipping takes up to one week. Basically, that's all you need. Well, you may consider salmiak as well.

    Recipe: tobacco 70%, water 22%, potassium carbonate 5%, salt 3%. For extra moisture and ammonia, add 0.1-0.3 g of ammonium chloride (salmiak) dissolved in 1-2 ml of water per 10 g of snuff. This makes one-pinch-wonder snuff even using low-nicotine tobacco varieties (I use oriental leaf currently and it does deliver).

    P. S. I suppose you can easily get tobacco flour from snusbolaget. It will perfectly fit the bill:

    Making snuff is much easier than making snus. The most challenging part of the snuffmaking process to me is grinding. Here you get ready-made coarse flour. Wish they shipped it across the Baltic Sea...
  • I've been buying NTSU from South Africa shop, based in England, for the last 4 years. It's 12.90 pounds per roll, shipping to the USA is almost the same price. So it's $30 +|- Started out cheap, then became expensive due to shipping. I wonder if Mr Snuff sells by the roll
    They aren't my favorite snuffs but I like to have them on hand anyway.
