On August 17, 2022, a new flavor Ruby Regular released from the exclusive tobacco stick TEREA of the heated tobacco device IQOS ILUMA.
In this article, in order to explore the characteristics of its taste, we will compare it with two falvors, the existing standard regular TEREA Regular and the berry flavor TEREA Black Purple Menthol.

Innovative flavor with fruit aroma
This product TEREA Ruby Regular is the 15th brand in the “TEREA” series. It seems that it is finished in a unique taste with a rich berry flavor in regular regular tobacco.
New work TEREA Ruby Regular. The design is also based on the blue of “TEREA Regular”, with a berry-like wine red accent color.
In the first place, I am concerned about the characteristics of the fourth category, “flavored regular”. I will smoke TEREA Ruby Regular at once to see what the actual taste is.
From the moment you open the package, the fruitiness of berries is gorgeous. This is a great expectation!
When you smoke it, the first thing that strikes you straight is the heavy aroma of regular tobacco leaves and a malty flavor. However, the sweet fruity taste of berries is added to the usual regular taste, and it is a completely new sensation.
I imagined that it would have a menthol feel, but there is no cool refreshing feeling. The ripe fruitiness of red berries such as cassis and raspberry creates a bewitching nuance, giving the impression of an elegant regular tobacco. I think it’s especially recommended for people who don’t need the cooling sensation of menthol but like the fruity taste.
Compare with TEREA Regular
Then I smoked TEREA Regular to see how it was different. This is the classic regular tobacco flavor with a rich and rich flavor among the four regular flavors in the TEREA series.
“TEREA Regular”. It has a rich taste and a pleasant nutty and woody taste.

TEREA Black Purple Menthol: Feel the cool fruit flavor
The taste is middle-bodied, but the attack of menthol is extremely vivid. Combined with the wet fruitiness of berries, you can enjoy a dynamic and juicy cool sensation. The direction of the berry is blueberry-oriented, and it can be said that it is a flavored menthol with a really clear characteristic.
For regulars who don’t need a cool feeling and just want a fruity taste!
A new option for regular smokers, flavored regular. Also pay attention to the future lineup expansion in the same category.
As I mentioned earlier, TEREA Ruby Regular is recommended for people who don’t need the cooling sensation of menthol, but who like the fruity taste. As for transfer information, I think the “TEREA Regular” introduced this time is the most applicable. There is no cooling sensation, so switching from flavored menthol is not recommended.
In addition, if it is a cigarette stick dedicated to “IQOS 3 Duo” or “IQOS 3 Multi”, I think that “Marlboro Heat Stick Regular” and “Heat’s Pure Teak” are subject to change.
