    Can anyone tell me where to order Hobbits Weed? I am very curious about this infamous blend but have not seen it online.

    Hmm..I don't think they have a blend called "Hobbit's Weed", but Just For Him has a line of 4 or 5 tobacco blends they call Hobbit's Weed.

    Tewksbury & Co. is who produces it I believe, but it appears that their link to purchase it is broken. You might try giving them a call. 303.825.1880

    They don't list it under pipe tobacco they sell http://tewksburycompany.com/newsite/pipe-tobacco but it's listed in their sampler. I don't know why that is.

    I love this tobacco and its my favorite. They do have an actual blend called Hobbits Weed. They used to have it listed on their website but I dont see it anymore. I "acquired" a pound about a month ago. i need another 2 lbs of this stuff. Really amazing. There is an older website called hobbitsweed.com (which has some good info on its long history) but you cant order from it. So you have to go to their main site at http://www.tewksburycompany.com/newsite/

    That's the one I was looking at zonomo, interesting read.

    Thanks for the info all, I am off to search for the infamous weed.

    You can definitely buy it in bulk. I usually get 4oz at a time when I get it. Though I do go down there personally. Their tobacco is mostly bulk with very little tinnage.

    I've been watching the site daily for about a month and they haven't added it yet. Called a few times and they're trying to get it up on there soon. They are very helpful. I ended up just calling and ordering 8oz a few weeks ago. It took a few days to process it (they have over a 60lb back order from the holidays and were fighting with the credit card companies on top of everything else), but I got it last week...and it sure is tasty, I'm thinking of ordering some more for the cellar. I'm sure if you call they'd hook you up with it within a week or so.

    I gave em a call to order then found out the don't take Mastercard due to fees. So I had to go town get a money order and send it to them. A bit of a pain in the a$$, but the guy I talked to was a really nice guy and I couldn't help but like him on the phone. Very courteous and chipper. Hope the weed is worth it.

    It will be 05venturer. My first bowl of it wasnt the greatest but it was ok. Then after a few weeks I had another and it was fantastic. Now its almost magical. Its my favorite by far as of now.

    For those who have ordered from Tewksbury & Co., would you suggest their sampler of 5 blends, of just the Hobbit's Weed?Sampler from Tewksbury

    I read somewhere that the Tewksbury internet sites (pick your flavor among several) are not secure and it's highly recommended orders be called in.

    Forewarned, forearmed, as they say.

    I plan on calling, just asking if the whole sampler is worth getting or just the Hobbi's Weed.

    None are my style, but for a rather small tobacconist, their hand blended tobaccos do get good reviews.

    Check 'em out and see what you think: http://www.tobaccoreviews.com/brand_detail.cfm?ALPHA=T&BID=204

    When I talked to them a few weeks ago, they just got done sorting it all out with the Credit Cards- and I placed a phone order using my card...so I'd assume we're good to go with the site, Im going to order some more for the cellar ASAP.
