Cigar humidor for Pu?

by JD » Jul 27th, '13, 16:57

Just as the title says. I own a cigar humidor, a small one, that I used for a few months for cigars before I quit smoking and now it's just sitting there collecting dust. It's a good humidor with a window on top and made of very nice wood. Smells a bit like cigars but I thought I could transform it into a small pu-er humidor for aging pu. It has an electronic humidifier inside it that keeps track of the humidity instantly at all times.

Thoughts?

If it's lined with spanish cedar and smells like cigars then no.

Unless you like drinking cedar pulp and cigar tobacco

I guess I could use it for packaged/sealed tea storage or something. Hate to see it just sit in the closet.

How big is it? I see no reason not to experiment with a couple average cakes.

Have you smelled the inside of a cigar humidor before?

P.S. I don't mean this to sound demeaning, I'm actually wondering.

Believe it or not you can smoke tea. I've done it myself. It's an alternative to smoking tobacco. Infact, a lot of the alternative tobacco-less or nicotine-less smokable leaves are tea leaves.

Really? I can't imagine rolling up some of my precious sheng and smoking it.
