Do different tobacco's vary in moisture?
Different blend have different moistures. You don't want the tobacco to be moist when you smoke it. It will make the smoke hot and hard to keep lit. If you pinch some of it together and it sticks together, then let it dry before smoking. The amount of drying time depends on how moist it is.
And what would be the best way to keep tobacco fresh?
If it s in a tin, you can leave it unopened fora long time. If you have opened the tin or other container it came in, the best thing to do is to put it in a mason jar. They are air tight and will keep it fresh.
