Jump to: navigation, search

Cheroot ("Say Paw Late") is one of the distinctive icons of Myanmar. These cigars are made with a blend of tobacco and fragrant wood chips, then rolled up using a dried green leaf called the "tha nat phet." After adding a filter made of corn husks, the cheroot is ready to be smoked and is without the addition of harsh chemicals. They are mostly handmade by women in the Inle Lake region.
