Baling and ageing of wrappers

Share This
Categories: Perfect leaf

After the wrappers have been sorted into classes, they are once again tied into gavillas  (sheaves). The gavillas are then packed in bales known as tercios , made from yagua , which is the loose bark of the Royal Palm tree, a material used for many purposes in Cuba. Every bale carries a label rich with information about the leaves within it including their size, the year of harvest and the date of packing. Tercios are also marked with the code of the Escogida where the wrappers were sorted.
Finally the tercios are transported to the warehouse where the wrappers will be left to age for a minimum of six months.
