By June 13, 2022IQOS

In August 2021, the standard IQOS for heat-not-burn tobacco devices was fully remodeled. The latest models IQOS ILUMA and IQOS ILUMA Prime are not compatible with the conventional tobacco sticks Marlboro Heatsticks and HEETS, and only the dedicated tobacco stick TEREA Stick can be used.

TEREA Stick will be available from August 18, 2021 at “IQOS Store” and “IQOS ILUMA Lab Shibuya”, and from September 2 at “IQOS Shop”, “IQOS Corner”, and convenience stores in Japan. Here, I tried to smoke all 14 types of “TEREA sticks” currently in the lineup and reviewed the taste of each.

TEREA Stick with disposable metal pieces

One of the evolutionary points of “IQOS ILUMA” is that instead of eliminating the heating blade, which was troublesome to maintain, a metal piece was placed inside the special cigarette stick to realize maintenance-free while maintaining the central heating type. .. The new exclusive tobacco stick is the TEREA Stick.

In addition, the TEREA Stick has succeeded in reducing the spread of odor by preventing the generation of dregs by sealing the tobacco leaves with a lid on the tip of the stick. It’s a big evolution without saying anything, but it’s a taste that bothers me.

The brand “TEREA” is a brand created for IQOS ILUMA, which did not exist not only for IQOS but also for cigarettes. However, the basic taste seems to be similar to that of Marlboro Heatsticks”, and by choosing TEREA Stick with the same package color and name (only Fusion Menthol is not in the lineup), it is a natural switch from the conventional model. Can be done.

The taste has evolved into a clear taste with less miscellaneous taste while keeping the strong taste like the conventional model of “IQOS”. You can feel the liquid taste similar to that of the company’s heat-not-burn tobacco device “Lil Hybrid” that uses a sealed stick, but the strength of the taste is still higher than that of “IQOS ILUMA”. Even if the specifications are changed significantly, the position of “heat-not-burn tobacco best taste” seems to be unwavering.

The holder of "IQOS ILUMA" has a tighter stick insertion slot than conventional devices such as "IQOS 3 DUO", so it takes a little getting used to getting it well.

The most powerful device of “IQOS ILUMA” was “TEREA Rich Regular”, which has a rich taste. It is a regular type that harmonizes the aroma and depth of high-quality tobacco leaves with the flavor of “malt (malt / malt)”. What surprised me was the lack of sweetness. Along with the sharp steam, it makes you feel like a cigarette.

TEREA Stick that allows you to spend a luxurious time

Along with the flagship model “IQOS ILUMA Prime”, the exclusive tobacco stick “TEREA” series that appeared in August 2021. Currently, among the sticks for heat-not-burn tobacco, along with the “Marlboro Heatsticks” series, it is a high-end brand with the highest price of 580 yen(about $4.30).

However, as you can see by actually smoking it, it is a fact that the combination of TEREA Stick and IQOS ILUMA is full of top-class luxury among heated cigarettes. Above all, I took off my hat for the depth of “TEREA Rich Regular” and the perfect balance between the tobacco taste and menthol feeling of “TEREA Mint”.

If you want to spend your time as luxurious as possible, we recommend the TEREA Stick. This is because there is no unpleasant taste and you can get the strongest taste at present.
Like the Marlboro Heatsticks, the color of the package is different, but the unfriendlyness of not knowing the name of the flavor without looking at the top remains
