    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

    Ice apple got discontinued? That's a shame, it was a really, really good flavor. And by new one do you mean the revamped nak da? Or are they making a new ice apple? I haven't had alchemist in awhile and I really should pick some up again, I liked everything I've tried by them so far

    I actually do like the heavy anise flavor, I just dropped a coal early on to level it to my liking but I do like AF double apple as well, just not as much as this, nak has a more complex and darker tone to it I feel and that just appeals to me more, but I do occasionally get some AF DA once in awhile, this is still to heavy in smoke feel for me right now so I think I'll stop after the first round.

    Well I do love it, I always have the crave for double apple when I'm in the mood for hookah, its one of the few flavors I never really get sick of. I'll keep that in mind with clove too, I don't want to toss it just because I might not be used to the flavor profile after a couple bowls but hopefully that flavor type will grow on me. This heavy over pack with the lotus is so good though, not exactly economical with the shisha but yeah. This session is especially heavy though, I did a semi dense to the rim and added more this time, bit too heavy for me but still awesome, lately got the craving for some AF mint and cane mint so I think I'll need to grab some of that as well

    I'm gonna need a new order soon, running low on that 10k pack of coal and I'm almost out of tobacco, can't say I'm getting sick of nakhla double apple though, I still love it lmao, having some now with the same setup, with a cup of masala chai and a bit of milk and sugar, really nice way to relax after work. Lately been favoring nice strong black teas when I smoke double apple. Hopefully next time I get an order in I'll have a bit more variety so you don't see me post about double apple nonstop but I'm probably gonna get another kilo, or two possibly... Want to try some of that Tangier's clove since I don't feel confident that I'll get some decently fresh zag, I'm on a big of a budget these days but I'll see what I can pick up

    Yeah I've seen a video about a hookah cafe in turkey, they under packed their Turkish bowls really light and fluffy, with three coals right on the tobacco

    I'm guessing the ratios are all equal portions to one another? I'm guessing the ratios are all equal portions to one another?

    My house internet is down so I went looking through some DVDs to watch something while I have some dinner, hookah, and tea, popped in the first harry Potter lmao, I tried doing semi dense over pack donut style in the Egyptian with a lotus and so far its going fantastic! A lot of flavor from this pack, pulled a coal down and its only going with two but yeah, nakhla double apple that is.

    I remember making dry fruit with this food drier thing we had when I was a kid, dried apples and bananas and stuff, I grew up eating dried fruit as a kid and I think its still good, I prefer fresh fruit but yeah lmao, hey man at least you got your money back, I didn't get my refund for the kilo of double apple from 5star I sent out, I thought it had no flavor maybe they thought I was being a snob, who knows, no bad blood but I've had too many issues with the really big sites like 5star and HS, those sites are great for getting actual hookahs and accessories though, and just any tobacco that's popular since its constantly restocked, the bucket kilos probably aren't bought too often, anyways I opened my second pack of nakhla double apple and I'm smoking it now after dinner, well my dinner anyways, 6:51am here and I'm home from work

    So I just finished the first 250g pack of nakhla double apple, mixed this bowl with AF double apple in the Egyptian with lotus, pretty obvious how much I've been smoking it

    Man, been smoking a good amount of fresh nakhla DA lately and just cracked open a fresh batch of AF orange mint, I'm in a good place with hookah right now

    My order came in really fast for some reason, trying out some of the revamped nakhla double apple, I don't notice a huge difference, its a bit sweeter if anything but that could be in my head, its just because its so fresh though, I've mentioned before when I got double apple that it was cut up a lot better and its the same now, only difference is that the box is new I'd say. Juicier? I don't think so, I've had nakhla with the old cut come in practically drenched, its just "juicier" because its fresh, at least that's my take, anyway its nice having some nakhla DA again, probably my favorite flavor or up there

    Do you like it? I'm not a fan of blue mist myself. I'm smoking some AF blueberry today

    So some of you might see soon that hj posted a video on naklha double apple being revamped or whatever, seems like it's gonna be around the same, but now that he's finally got some in stock I ordered 4 packs of the 250g size and a pack of AF orange mint, the double able should be extremely fresh

    Yeah, its mostly to stop all the kids my age from smoking cigarettes since cigarette smoking is just so common here, its typically the college guys. I get it though, you seem to be the type to really enjoy company when you smoke, thats kind of interesting, I do enjoy company when I smoke but I'm really selective about it, I generally prefer to smoke by myself. I'm smoking some AF double Apple, picked up a sample of it and mojito again while I was out and about, AF double apple isn't bad by any means but its not my favorite, nonetheless I'm happy to get some anise kick in after awhile

    They passed the 21 age law for all tobacco products here, so far I'm fine and I don't think they'll implement any online rules quite yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if I got hit by something like that, anyways I feel you, I've been on a budget lately and haven't been smoking much at all lol

    Maybe I should try this then, its probably a good way to get my feet wet, I've wanted to try a lot of traditional stuff and wanted to start with AF soft black but it seems impossible to find, I tried zagloug light once but it was expired so it tasted like nothing, I'll consider this as my first try with traditional stuff, I already like Tangier's

    I haven't ordered anything in awhile, I'm still waiting on information about the kilo I sent back, I've been really paranoid about ordering now so I'm waiting for HJ to get DA back in stock, in 250gs I mean, I don't want to risk buying the kilo again, I'd get it from smoking hookah but I wanna start with a smaller order from there

    Well I went into mojito knowing it was just a lime with mint, which is essentially what I was looking for so for that purpose I think its really nice, I'm sure the haze will be good as well, as for afzal, I think after going through my samples several times I can say in hindsight that it was a bit of a let down, I had high expectations for the mango and it was the worst flavor I got, it was supposed to be one of their top, the spearmint I did like because it wasn't an in your face mint it was sweet and mellow and I think that type of thing has its place, the earl grey was just okay, the coffee had weakish flavor but still stained the crap out of my set up. I think the choco pan latte was a decent flavor even if it was more subtle, but overall I still got that glycerin note from it being so saturated (I know I'm biased about that sorry lmao) I'm not too interested in trying more flavors from this brand, maybe I'd get the spearmint again but it just seemed like something that was not bad, but didn't stand out, if anything I think it'd be best to get the pan flavors since its hard to find flavors like that outside of the really traditional stuff like desi murli, and I think it'd be a better option than the inspiration flavors like starbuzz Lebanese bombhshell, (sorry matt I saw you post that just now and had to say it lol), lebonese bombshell is decent but that's just me not liking starbuzz very much.

    I picked up some tobacco from my local shop I never visit since I was out with my friend getting some tea from some new tea shop here and it was on the way, I got a sample of AF mojito and haze cucumberita, I only tried the AF so far and its actually really good, gotta get a 250 of this stuff. If anyone cares to know I picked up some loose leaf coconut chai black tea, little expensive but its really good
