What tastes like black tea or pure tobacco?

I love smooth, round, almost earthy flavors. So far, I've only found this flavor type from oxidized leaves, such as black tea (especially with milk) and the smell of good-quality tobacco. Is there any other source of a similar flavor?

I don't smoke and don't want to risk cancer, so tobacco is out for me.
I know about and enjoy pu-erh tea, which is almost as good as black but lacks a little on the high end of the palate.
