Taxi Green is a robust South African snuff that has a reputation for its strength. This well fermented blend of local virginia and rustica cultivars compromise the backbone of this powerhouse. The tobacco, when freshly tinned, gives of a very pungent aroma due to residual ammonia from fermentation, it is suggested to let the contents "air out" by leaving the cover off and letting the spirits evaporate. The stink, being a sign of freshness, may be the price to pay to enjoy this wild African tiger but does abate after a few hours. The initial flavor is of pure tobacco that is imparted by its terroir and reveals a singular flavor.
Additionally, there is a layer of menthol that provides a moderately refreshing hit to the nose with no burn. The color is dark, almost black and is very moist, easy to pinch and the grind is coarse like a rappee. This offering ticks all the boxes for many snuff enthusiasts. Try a pinch today.
Available in a convenient 15 gram container size.
Also enjoy a discount for a box of 12.

I usually find I have to be careful taking medicated snuff as I am very sensitive to them. I bought one TAXI Green just out of curiosity, I love TAXI Red and thought “Why not”. To my surprise TAXI Green is easy for me to take and had the same level of nicotine strength as the TAXI Red. Also, it is not totally dominated by the menthol, rather complimented by it. Very nice.
Got this as red was out of stock.
I find most menthol snuffs too overpowering, but this is just right.
So apparently, the green does not have as much nicotine as the red, but apart from the menthol, I really can't tell the difference.
A good substitute for when red is out of stock, or if you like a little menthol with your nicotine!
Mildly mentholated but with a great dark tobacco flavor with some complexities thrown in there very good I will be getting more!
This was the first snuff I ever emptied and felt sad.And that won't happen again I always order a couple.I am not a huge user of mentholated snuff, there are a few and this south african is a beauty, She is course and moist and delivers a great nicotine hit the menthol is both a feel and a scent but not over powering, you get to enjoy the great tobacco base.Not as heavy with the barn yard scent as its brothers red and blue but it's there in the back ground waving hello.Easy enough for the novice and satisfying for the veteran snuff user Note keep tissues handy or a brown handkerchief.
