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.

So I'm glad to say that my paypal has been straightened out and so has santino's. We were both having issues but I was finally able to send him the money for the amber crown classic glass bowl and I can't wait to freaking get it. Very, very excited.

Yeah I think he said he had one of the green ones left. Once they are gone they'll be gone forever in those colors, so I'm glad he held one for me while we both figured out our PayPal accounts. He's a straight up nice guy.

Work has been insanely busy and we keep getting high census pay, so I decided to treat myself.  My latest order is out for delivery, so that means my 3-hour class this afternoon will be the longest class of my life.  I'm so excited!!  :lol:

Hookah-Shisha was having a special where if you spend over $100 you can get either a 200g Starbuzz Vintage flavor, or 250g of Tangiers Cane Mint Xtreme. Commission checks came in, and a friend and I decided to snag a few things. He wanted to get a new bowl, so he got an Alien Mini phunnel, and a coil burner. I decided to stock up for awhile: 250g Tangiers Burley Prince of Grey, 250g Pure Tobacco FML, Alien Mini phunnel, and also decided to give the Kaloud Lotus a shot. As for the freebie, we chose the Tangiers Cane Mint Xtreme :)

You'll be set for a while. 🏻

T-minus 10 hours till my crown glass bowl gets here. So freaking excited!!!!! I want to use it as soon as it gets here but tomorrow the gf's brother in law is coming over to help me re-caulk the living room windows. We got some water gush in last time it rained. Hopefully it won't be a long project because I'm kicking his ass out as soon as we are done so I can smoke.

Prepare to have your mind blown. You may need a different amount of heat since glass is vastly different than clay

Yeah tell me about it. I think I can get by with just two tits instead of three. The flavor of the shisha was definitely different though and man does it stick to the glass. Just like with my Fumo. So right now I have it in soapy water

Thanks! It's awesome.

From using it twice already I find that the heat thing is trial and error. The first time I used it last night was with mazaya orange and three tits was too much heat. Today I tried it with haze and three was perfect.

WHAT!?!? I thought it was just a new terminology for coals. I had no clue that what it stood for. No tits. I'm never using that garbage again. Just using regular coals. Leo Naras. Lol

I used to use Coco Naras then tried Titaniums. Im not a fan of the original flat pieces because they dont seem to last that long, but the Titanium cubes are amazing. They are very dense, and last quite awhile.

Tomorrow I should be getting my shipment in. Im very curious to see how the Kaloud Lotus works. It seems to receive a lot of praise.

I miss the old school coco naras, they seemed to chang how they make them the last time I got them was a long time ago. They went from flat to cube and now I see they are flat again. Maybe I should give them a shit. They use to be the best in the market.

I couldnt even find Coco Nara cubes anymore. My replacements have been Titanium Cubes, not flats. They seem to last the longest out of any coals Ive used so far. Although, I do have a kilo of regular Titaniums atm, and I have a feeling they would be better for using in the Lotus, or at least easier to manage and move around. 

I got the shipment! :D  FML is amazing, and so far the Lotus is working flawlessly. I'm very impressed, and this alien mini is awesome!

To my knowledge coconara never made cubes. You may be thinking of mazaya which is the same company.

Yes the alien and lotus combo is pretty amazing! Have two myself

Before they changes the name of the cubes they use to come in Coco nara boxes and I was not a fan of them at all. I do t like most cube coal. I use flats, they always seem to give more heat that I prefer. I would like to try some Coco nara coals again it's been a long time.

My Cocourth coals are here!  I must say, I'm impressed.  They don't seem to have as much of a coal smell/taste as other brands I've tried, and they last a good chunk of time.  :)
