The smoking process is quite complicated. First the leaves wither on fire burning branches and trunks of pines and cypresses. After "frying" and rolling the leaves are pressed into wooden barrels and covered with cloth to ferment / oxidized until they begin to give off a pleasant smell.
The leaves are "fried" and rolled again until get thin and straight shape. Then placed in large bamboo baskets that hang in wattle over pine branches who smoke to dry and absorb the flavor of tobacco. When you finish this procedure leaves are thin, shiny and black.
