    I haven't heard of ameren, but that mint must be good if its your favorite flavor. I'm currently smoking AF blueberry mint, using the hose I've been smoking just orange mint out of so there's that orange citrus note coming through and its very nice

    I'll look around on the actual website then for info on jurak, but desi and jurak shouldn't be a big problem for me since I mean, I do get a buzz from Tangier's but it doesn't kill me, and yeah I think you get green apple the most, but the red apple and anise are definitely there just more in the background, the tobacco is a bit odd for me to work with but yeah its good

    Desi murli is supposed to be a lot more traditional from what I hear, most flavors having a lot of spices and such in it, I've been wanting to try it for awhile now, that site BTW, seems to be the only one carrying minar jurak that I've seen, the only information I have on jurak is that it's very traditional and kind of in line with desi murli in a sense, I really like afzal btw, I've tried the spearmint and choco pan latte and both are very nice, like I mentioned really smooth and thick in feel, the flavors are very nice and come off different from things I've tried, definitely a brand worth a try for people who haven't its a relaxing smoke. I also want to update on shisha royale double apple, my first impressions were incorrect and I have to say after smoking it a few times I have to say both in smell and flavor there's a really strong green apple aspect to it, dude you might like this, its got a lot in common with something like nakhla ice apple, no ice of course, the anise is actually not that strong its the green apple that really spikes out and its almost sharp in its taste, but there's some red Apple and anise there kinda in the background, I can't tell if its more candyish or natural but its a good double apple I've really liked it, but the tobacco itself is really interesting, its extremely finely chopped and in line with the wetness of like, when I got my alchemist alpine mint, if not a bit drier, the flavor is really strong and is pretty heat thirsty, I'm excited to try more flavors by these brands they're very nice. Anyways I'm smoking more orange mint out of the egy and lotus, went with an extremely light fluffy pack to the rim and donut method instead of the more semi dense, its going very nice right now. And to respond to you on 5star DD, you do have a point, but they seem like decent folk so I'd like to give them the benefit of a doubt, I'm not too butt hurt about it lmao, its funny like, HJ we all know has a pretty shitty demeanor, and seems to treat his boys like crap. But I've never had an issue in terms of my orders like ever, besides my shika having a leak in the hose port but I didn't even notice it myself for the longest, I don't know if it got worse over time but that's out of commission until I decide to get it fixed whenever I'm not lazy. Anyways sorry for the ramble gonna enjoy my free time relaxing and smoking now

    Simple AF orange mint for me, had it packed in the alien while giving the nakhla a final chance and then just swapped bowls lmao

    So I just added a third round of coal to AF blueberry mint in this new bowl, I needed a bowl like this lol, to update the issues I'm getting a refund on al Rayan, I have to send the double Apple back since they want to have it looked at by the manufacturer since they said they get nakhla like every week, I'll try to get that shipped out soon and either will get a new kilo or refund, I like that their customer service is good but it just sucks that they have issues with sending out expired product like HS, I guess its just a drawback of having such a huge inventory of parishable product

    The buzz is probably similar if I had to guess, I've been meaning to try desi murli, next site I wanna order from is smoking hookah I know they carry that and apparently carry jurak too, I want to try those as well as some other stuff

    Honestly I'll be happy if I just get a refund, but I'm gonna pack a bowl of shisha royale double apple, that stuff is bomb, this Egyptian is pretty deep too so its gonna be good for longer sessions

    Lol I'm not too beat up about it, sometimes things don't go well, but I'm really happy with afzal and shisha royale so far as well as this Egyptian clay bowl, but 5star won't see anymore business from me like H-S, granted I'd bet it would be hard getting your hands on a fresh kilo from anywhere, those aren't exactly big sellers outside of lounges

    So I'm trying the nakhla, the flavor is like hardly there at all, I think this stuff is expired, I got a kilo of it and this was what I was worried about, anyways I cut the session short and used the coal to try out Othmani double apple, its good, but I emailed asking for a refund on my two expired products, sorry but a whole kilo of expired tobacco is too much

    Is that one of the trusted vendors? I might try one of them next order

    Now for some afzal spearmint, this stuff is extremely smooth and the smoke is really full and thick, I'm glad I tried this brand I know I'm definitely going to like it a lot, shisha royale had a feel similar to alchemist blend and the double apple was kind of a middle ground between the alchemist double apple and nakhla I feel, its a shame my al rayan gum with mint was expired but overall I'm happy with this order

    Trying out some shisha royale double apple, I'm glad I got it in 250, pretty nice stuff. It takes heat really well, a bit on the drier side, and this flavor packs a pretty heavy anise punch, it's got some good sweetness too I really like it

    Last time I order from 5star, last time I'm gonna have them send me expired tobacco, they sent me al rayan that expired in January and you can see the date through the plastic cover, I guess that's why it was so cheap, couldn't of been bothered to add a disclaimer? I don't know, not going to email them either lol just done, here's to hoping my kilo of nakhla double apple is safe, I can't ever find an expiration date on nakhla

    So I was originally going to get a lot more stuff but trimmed it down since it was so expensive, wanted to get some km tobacco samba ugly a few of those new stuff but cut them out, this order is from 5star and I'm getting a kilo of nakhla double apple, their pricing on it was good I just hope its a decently fresh batch lol, 250g AF orange mint, blueberry mint, shisha royale double apple, all rayan gum/mint. For 50g I got othmani double Apple, afzal cappacino, spearmint, mango, whatever the latte pan flavor is called, Earl grey. Then a new Egyptian clay bowl and some disposable hoses.

    I've had pomegranate once, it was extremely tart but I bet it adds a nice later to blueberry mint, which I'm a bit fan of on its own, I think it was you who asked about AF jasmine right? If it was then it was alright, it was what you'd expect from a jasmine flavor, I thought it was alright but there's nothing wrong with it at all

    See why I kept going with that set up? Lmao, I agree with you though, when I want it stronger and more of the tobacco coming through I'll use foil but that set up just makes it so smooth, I have no idea why either

    Lebanese bombshell for me today before bed, been just smoking prince of grey and wanted a change of pace, both are pretty nice and prince of grey is good practice since its just so incredibly sensitive, I find Lebanese bombshell to have a slightly sweet slightly salty characteristic honestly, might just be me? Might be the glyercin note? Idk, either way its a decent flavor

    Is it red grape? I like grape flavors and I hear Tangier's does them pretty well, no good with prince of grey outta the Tangier's small so went with the aliens and lotus again

    Smoking some prince of grey, its actually a really nice flavor but my problem with it is that this flavor in particular is really sensitive, I have the most trouble with this one, right now I'm going very light with the heat, just two titanium's in the lotus and alien, weak smoke but its keeping the flavor smooth and nice BTW I have to say it DD, but that fake lotus does not look safe to use lol, its newer than my real lotus and its already almost black, mine is still looking the same as when I got it, might not mean much but who knows what the fake one is made out of, if you really like it I'd say just get the real one

    I'm nearly out of tobacco, but tight on cash ATM, going with mimon again out of the alien and lotus, I like doing this set up a lot for Tangier's I think its actually really good, my sessions are a bit more heat resistant this way I find plus if I just want that one round of coal, works been rough lately so its nice to kick back and smoke, after a good meal too, me and this dude I work with picked up some pretty good Italian beef sandwiches so now I'm stuffed and happy, overall good end for rough work day, on a side note I want to talk about Lebanese bombshell a bit, not as crazy as a flavor as I've expected and since its starbuzz even if its an odd flavor its really approachable since it was on the lighter side of things, it was alright but if I'm gonna smoke something like that I'd rather go for a more traditional tobacco and see how that treats me

    That was the first coconut coal I've used, before that I used quick lights on the occasions when my friend brought his bambino around but I got naras with my first hookah, this was only about a little over a year ago so I don't know what they used to be like, but they were still a step up from 3 kings, I prefer my heat a bit lower so I stick with titanium's, I do have some mazayas left around in case I decide to go with some nostalgia too, its funny because citrus mint by af was one of the first few flavors I really got into, but I save those moments I want a throwback to get AF mint, I loved that stuff so much when I got my own hookah and its still great, takes heat like an absolute monster too
