The Medio Tiempo is a rare leaf that grows at the top of only the most select tobacco plants. Not all plants, however, produce medio tiempo. Some farmers have estimated that only one in ten plants produce these top leaves. The blend also includes long leaf fillers from Honduras, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic, all held together by a Connecticut broadleaf binder and a gorgeous Ecuadorian seed Sumatra wrapper. The La Gloria Cubana Medio Tiempo is expertly hand crafted at the famous El Credito factory in the Dominican Republic.
