    I don't know when I'm gonna sit down and try clove, but I had the guava with a tad of cane mint thrown on top with my friend, first time trying guava mind you, I thought it was great, I really love the original noir line, I smoke nakhla double apple so often that noir feels so familiar to me, its texture and consistency is a way similar than let's say birquq, birquq always gives me problems, wish me luck since I grabbed k peach in that line. Also I find it funny that even though I don't pack Tangier's like a hockey puck, I just put enough in there and smooth it around a bit lightly, it'll still go for 2 rounds of coal out of the Tangier's small phunnel with 3 coals per set, where any other tobacco is burnt out by the time that first round is over, really makes the price point of Tangier's seem worth it, I doubt I use more grams in the pack since it's way less dense, hence why it always looks like there's more tobacco in its packaging than other brands. So I don't know what's up with that, but I ain't complaining, nakhla packed like a hockey puck in this bowl will completely burn out after that first round so this tobacco just might be that high caliber. But that could just all be bro science and there's something I might not get, anyways rant over, enjoying a nice bowl of guajava in the alien and lotus. Finally got some really tight sealing containers too so that's cool

    Well since I have the 60 packs of 16pc sample boxes from Hj he still had on the site, it's really interesting to see how different a lot of these packs are, some are fantastic, nice brown ash like coconaras still produce, I only know that because my friend uses them since they sell em at my local shop, really good heat, hardly any smell, generously large size, like when you get flats that look almost like a big cube, but then you get some batches with white ash, kinda random heat, a bit smelly, really fucked up pieces that look like someone took an ice pick to them, sometimes they break, and they will vary from sample pack to sample pack, I doubt I could go back to coconara because the heat is so random and heavy, those coals like to spark and crack whilst on the bowl. I had one of the older batches of cocourth that weren't some of their best from what I heard, they were solid but I just don't like coals that put off that much heat, just doesn't fit in well with how I prepare my sessions and its very difficult for me to manage, ecocha were really good, really clean tasting IMO (well no taste) just higher heat, I'd buy them again if I didn't want titanium's, I HATED charcoflare and CHX coals, I know some are fans of charcoflare but I thought they made my session taste like it had quick lights on it, and gave me a headache. It was awful, my pallet is pretty sensitive so if there's any flavor in a coal I'll notice, for me, titanium's and ecocha have been the best in that specific department, ecocha being even better but I just like the lower heat. Sorry for the coal rant guys but I felt like throwing my 2 cents in the conversation lmao, at any rate I've been smoking some Kashmir cherry with bits of my last AF mint I could scrape up, wasn't bad at all, made heat management a bit easier too. I tend to have a bit of trouble with birquq. K cherry won't be something I'd pick up again, quite a weak flavor, can barely even taste the Kashmir in it at all too and that's really a bummer, I'm so excited for my k peach to come in, great stuff and I haven't had it in a few months. 500gs ftw. I've been smoking some of my AF grapefruit too, prefer it with mint but still awesome and sharp, Mt orange went bad for a second time in a row because the container was crap and I was too late on the repack. Gonna be careful with AF these days onward. Gotta have that AF orange fix man, funny enough I prefer orange straight over the mint mix instead of the usual. The orange really pops out more. Suck great tobacco I swear, and all this talk on orange and mango makes me wanna try for an order of those and have that mix again, straight grapefruit and orange is fantastic too.

    I liked AF mango, it was a lot better than afzal mango that's for sure, really good with af orange

    Okay so I just placed an order from hookah-shisha, basically a Tangier's exclusive order. 2 packs of birquq Kashmir peach (I've missed it), 1 pack of noir cane mint, clove, and guajava. Unfortunately couldn't get peach iced tea but oh well, got some cheap containers and grommets to push it to the $100 mark so I could get free shipping

    I would but now its a 21 and up site and they wrote on check out that they look into it now as well, I'm 20 so I don't think I can order from there anymore unfortunately, that was my vendor of choice too

    Like usual I'm smoking some double apple, almost out of this kilo, makes me sad

    Latest Shisha Order Thread

    Yeah man I have to agree, after I shipped back the kilo of double apple I emailed him asking to let me know when he got it, that was around two months ago, never got a reply or refund, and I've had several issues with them before, unfortunately for me I can't order from HJ, the site makes you put your date of birth now to verify you're 21, I faked it and went to the checkout station and it said you'd probably need to send more info to verify your age, so I didn't bother, HS has been out the window for awhile and I want to avoid 5star as well, as far as I can tell I may have to put the hookahs down to rest for the year till I turn 21, unless anybody knows any vendors I can order from that won't bug me about that stuff? There's actually a hookah shop by my house that has never carded me, and I bought tobacco there after the law changed, but their inventory isn't great and they don't carry nakhla, and a lot of their stuff just sits on the shelf for awhile, but its good for 250g packs of AF at least, I thought about ordering from smoking-hookah.com but these days I'm so paranoid about ordering from other sites because of all the issues I've had with expired or dried tobacco that I just don't know, maybe I'll give hookahjunkie a try but I'll just wait and see for now, I'm posting this because I'm getting low on tobacco and plan to make an order really soon lol, but if anybody knows a site they can vouch that doesn't carry out of code tobacco so I can order a bunch of nak DA without any trouble, let me know lol

    Showing the 80ft some love after god knows how long, its kind of cool having a discontinued bowl, well the color scheme anyway, I don't know if it was a first gen or second gen 80ft though, just got some standard AF mint again, AF mint was the first 250g pack I bought after I got my first hookah and I used to smoke it a lot a couple years ago, its nice going back to it once in awhile, still one of my favorite mints, I like that its just a nice chill mint gum flavor and not too strong

    I'm smoking some AF mint out of the shika, Egyptian head with foil

    I'm just smoking some double apple out of the shika, Egyptian clay bowl, and foil, I like the restricted draw for a change of pace, its nice. Was reading a book while I smoked the majority of this session that my friend loaned me he got at college I believe, just a short story called anthem. I guess that goes in line with the change of pace thing, I'm not much of a reader lmao, nice relaxing session before I hit the hay

    I use an andriod dude, also I finally busted out the shika sorya for the first time in a good while, gave a really deep hard cleaning inside and out, it seems to have no problems producing smoke, I'm trying out a 50/50 mix of nak double apple and AF orange, and honestly its actually pretty dang good, I'm enjoying it quite a bit, I might not be able to seal the inside of the hose port reliably but I know where it leaks out on the stem itself, if I seal those small spots on the stem outside of the port then I think it would do the job, but its smoking well enough now so I can't complain, its a beautiful hookah IMO, and looks great after I cleaned it up well

    Yeah so far I'm liking it, gives the cherry more umph, I might really like that DA then, as you know I like mixing those double apples anyways, I still think you should try shisha royale DA, its honey based and takes heat really good, chopped really fine and lasts a long time, I've gotten consistent three rounds out of a bowl I only get 2 rounds on with other brands, but that DA tasted a lot like nak ice Apple, that really sharp green apple flavor is so dominant in that version BTW I keep getting this weird random issue to where I can't like comments for awhile, and sometimes I can't post, really strange

    I'm trying a mix of Tangier's Kashmir cherry 70% and nak DA 30%, Its not bad at all, I think if I tried it with more DA it would come out better

    I'm smoking some AF orange, unfortunately this package doesn't seal well at all so it got a little dry without me noticing and I had to repack it in something else, it seems salvageable but it lost some flavor, I gotta be more prepared and get some better containers lol

    AF grapefruit and grapefruit with mint are awesome, I got some straight grapefruit and had a bowl of it before this double apple, its my second favorite citrus flavor. Simple affordable and done extremely well. I love af

    Went with another orange grapefruit mint mix, I like this a lot better than the premixed citrus mint, AF grapefruit is a lot better than lemon in my opinion, and I like mint to be the minor flavor in my mint mixes most of the time, the premixed stuff uses more mint than I like so its a nice change of pace for me considering that I always get it premixed

    My order came in and I set up Kashmir cherry for my friend but he said it was kind of weak and didn't like it, so I did a mix of AF orange 50% like 30% grapefruit and just a bit of mint and its really nice

    Well my friend bought me a couple samples since I'm out of stock until my tobacco comes in, so now I'm smoking some blueberry mint by AF, it's nice but I wish I had some nak DA right about now

    Fantasia pink lemonade was one of the first shishas I've tried, and even being really new to hookah and not used to the heaviness of some flavors that stuff barely tasted like anything to me. I've had their white grape and it barely tasted like anything, the wet mango tasted like a light soap, its been a long time since I had fantasia, they have some gems I have to admit, incredible was pretty decent, ace of spades was actually really good, ice blueberry and ice strawberry were decent too. But they don't really have anything that I'd consider good outside of a few novelty flavors that are worth a try or two, or to have with guests. Personally I stick to brands that have very specific simple and to the point flavors that are just done fundamentally well, I can't really bring myself to ever make an order for shisha without picking up some nak double apple and any citrus/mint flavors from AF, to me those flavors are just always good and give you exactly what you want, without being too much or too heavy. I don't know, I don't want to shit on any company but I'm biased against fantasia because I think its a gimmicky company with nothing fundamentally solid to offer. They might have some decent stuff but like dude said there's nothing they have that another brand doesn't already do better. But they must be doing something right if they're still in business and sold everywhere.

    I've been busy lately so I haven't been able to post but I finally just placed a new order from HJ, I got the $60 deal of 60 of those 16 Piece boxes since it's about 9 kilos and the price is good, got a kilo of nakhla double apple, Tangier's birquq Kashmir cherry, AF mint, orange, and grapefruit, then some fancy hoses, I wanted to get a pack of the new nakhla white grape or Tangier's white grape but I couldn't this time without sacrificing something else in the other, same goes for alchemist blend stout lemon mint which I've wanted to get for awhile, but at any rate this is a good order
