Welcome to the forum. Feel free to introduce yourself in the Introduce Yourself forum.

In a persistently humid location, the only way to reduce the moisture content of finished tobacco is to gently heat it, until it becomes drier. Heat reduces the relative humidity in the air within the heated container. Allow excess moisture to escape while it is heating. Then seal the container. It is much easier to add moisture to dry tobacco than to reduce the moisture if your ambient humidity is too high. Drier tobacco will also burn more easily.

Instead of heating it, you could also try spreading the shredded tobacco in the direct sun, as is done with rajangan, then seal it in a container when it is drier.

Can you describe the two kinds of local tobacco that you have?
