1.A tightly packaged can of dipping tobacco used to make the dip user "mad buzzed", always paired off with a trusty spitter. Usually done in a social environment full of other dip users. There are many types of tins that come in a variety of flavors (mint, berry, wintergreen, straight, peach, vanilla, toasted marshmallow, etc.) Sometimes flavors are mixed together to make a dip hybrid (ex. Vanilla and Cherry =Cherry Vanilla or Peach and Mint = minty and fruity lip). Always pack your tin before you indulge in the delicious tin.
