Pipe tobacco falls into two broad categories
->Latakia based blends
->Flavored (cased and/or topped)
That totals two, since you should avoid the last category completely.
It's a good idea to reserve a different pipe for Virginia and Latakia blends, so you can get by perfectly, and explore virtually the entire world of tobacco, with only two pipes.
Virginias range from mildly to very sweet, and can be some of the most satisfying and complex smokes. They age particularly well. Latakia blends are dry, smoky, and marvelous.
It's a hobby that can keep you busy.
