Latest Shisha Order Thread

Question

Well I figured that I would start my own thread on this for two reason. 1. to get everybody talking about what they ordered recently, and 2. Because I changed my order from hookahset.com to medwakh.com.

I needed to order coals so I I figured I would try new stuff. I placed an order at Medwakh.com for a kilo of coco Jamra's, a tin each of Othmani baklava, Turkish coffee and double apple because I'm still searching for that great double apple that tastes strongly like star anise, but not like black licorice. I know it's out there because that was my first shisha, but they don't sell it here in the states. Anyway I digress.

The Good:

Placing the order with medwakh.com was awesome and when you click on their link to facebook, a 10% discount gets automatically added to your cart.

They also carry Nirvana brand Shisha which is good to know for when I'm ready to try that very strong tobacco.

Their shipping is very reasonable, like with social smoke, it's only $6.95 for everything that I added to my cart. Which brings me to:

The Bad:

I tried placing an order with hookahset.com yesterday and the shipping said $6.95. GREAT!!! I placed my order for the coco mazaya, a tin of platinum Bahrain apple Tangiers cane mint and about 5 other Al Fakher flavors to try.

Well, they don't have the Tangiers cane mint, so I changed it to Maraschino Cherry but they also wanted to charge me $23.50 for shipping and the order was only $35.

The kicker is that they are in Jersey and so am I. So I canceled the order, told them to go F&^% themselves an placed the order with Medwakh.com

The Ugly:

I was really looking forward to trying the coco mazaya, but it seems I'm not going to be able to try them right now until I find a reputable company to order from that does NOT charge an arm and a leg for shipping.

I guess this is what happens to me when I try to deviate from Social Smoke. They are a great company to order from, no hassles, shipping is always $5.95 and it's free with an order of $75 or more. They have great flavors and their personal hand holding is great, specially for somebody like me that still considers himself a newbie.

So where can I order the coco mazaya from? Where do you guys order from? Everybody else charges about $12 for shipping but I don't need to place a large order right now, so it's not worth it for me to pay that much for shipping.

Mobster flavor is AWESOME!!!!

It has that mild citrusy flavor with raspberry and pineapple. Really delicious with each drag of the hose.

I'll take your guys' word on it :)

One solid week later and my order has now shipped from hookah-shisha. Having some issues keeping in contact with the new guy thats in charge of their sponsored reviewers(like me). Oh well, my new Shika is on the way! Everyone keep your fingers and toes crossed for me that I dont get any taxes, I have a feeling it would be an expensive one this time.

No worries, just have it delivered to me instead and I'll hold it for you until your next trip to PA. :) :) :)

I've heard nothing but bad things about hookah set. So many horror stories of then sending the wrong stuff and refusing to fix things. I've always shopped with hookah-shisha and always will, they have the biggest selection and even though their prices are higher, they do price matching, and their customer service is out of this world. If you ever have an issue they are more than willing to replace the products or give you store credit. Great people over there.

I know people who order from medwakh though and they've had no complaints, so I'm sure your order will be fine =) Just stay away from hookah set.

 

I agree that H-S is a good company to order from, but I haven't gotten them to price match for me.

Kashmir cherry is good but it's a lot of cherry. If you have any plain Kashmir you may want to add it in. Sounds like a great order though! Happy birthday go shred some licks!

Thanks!  I haven't had a cherry flavor before (WHAT), but it sounds oddly appealing to me right now.

Cherry is one of my favorite flavors in life, black cherry specifically, but a lot of the mainstream cherry flavors I've had borderline on the medicinal side of things... dont get me started about HAZE's frozen lakes...  but as far a pure cherry flavor, I really liked Al Fakher...  plus, it made me happier that the red dye had an appropriate home...

 

I got an order for a friend comin' in real soon now... Got him a variety sample pack of new flavors, and another t-shirt (5star), and a couple of coals I recommend...  Plus, his own electric coil burner specifically for coals so he wont piss off his room mate as much.. in theory... my friend is Irish, which is to say stubborn, loud, arrogant, smelly, opinionated, and he shares too much...  As a fellow Celt, I'm familiar with these problems, unfortunately...

 

Haven't scoured the flavor portion of forums over this yet, but anyone tried pipe tobacco flavored mainstream shisha?  It sounded interesting, and could be a good mixer, i.e. lebanese bombshell (which is a bit too buttery, or almost sweet for me...)

I said it above - nope.  I've never actually had a single cherry flavor ever.  It just sounds appealing to me for some reason right now.

I know. I saw the post, but I thought it was like a guessing game where only a few from the list was going to be discontinued. If all those flavors are going to be gone, then what the hell are they going to have?

I say let's petition so Mobster doesn't go away. I mean I know Voltage is more popular but damn mobster is a great flavor.
