More info
Snuff is a kind of pharmaceutical preparation which the perfect ground tobacco powder is put into some rare medicinal herb, musk, etc. and sealed them into the wax pills in different kinds of color, such as dark purple, deep yellow, pale yellow and so on. It tastes mellow and sharp. It is said that it can make eyes bright, refresh, exorcise epidemic disease, invigorate the circulation of blood. At first, smoking tobacco was illegal during the Qing Dynasty, but the use of snuff was allowed because the chinese considered snuff to be a remedy for common illnesses such as colds, headaches and stomach disorders. By the end of 17th century, it had become a part of social ritual to use snuff. This lasted through most of the 18th century. Eventually, the trend had spread to every class of the country. It was common to offer a pinch of snuff as a way to greet friends and relatives. The use of snuff increased and decreased with the rise and fall of the Qing Dynasty and died away soon after the establishment of the Republic of China.
