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.

I too made an order to get that deal I posted about.

Trifecta dark blend BDH and pulp friction (best shisha name I've ever seen)

And had to reup on charcoflare cubes. Thus completing the 40 dollar minimum to get a square Liberty bowl.

The sample of Charco flare cubes I received weren't good. It tainted the flavor even in the lotus. The QC'S are good though. I prob got a bad batch of those cubes.

Yeah that had to be a bad batch I've been using them off and on for a year and especially recently have been liking them more and more. The lotus ones are alright wish they had a bit more heat but can't complain otherwise

Basically my card is based in California while I live in Vegas which has never been a problem in the 3+ years of ordering hookah supplies offline. It was going on a few days when I emailed support and got no reply at all.

So I called them once it hit a week (an order earlier last month didn't ship until I called either which is ridiculous but besides the point) then the worker told me I needed to provide proof of those addresses and to email Alex which I did days ago. He posts all over social media but won't reply to emails nor will support. I decided enough is enough and am switching to hookah junkie without hesitation.

He is hands down the worst vendor when problems arise with an order.

Yeah I emailed Alex once, never got a reply either. He's pretty shitty when it comes to customer support. I've only ordered twice from 5star. Even though hj doesn't have a huge inventory he's still my main vendor, his customer service has never done me wrong.

I'm the opposite. Only ordered from hj twice but everything went extremely smooth. This year I'll be placing some more with him. You're right though not the biggest inventory but he stocks the stuff that matters

Nothing but good to say about Hookah John from this guy... His customer service was PHENOMENAL, and, if you are ordering more than $200 in goodies, call him, and he usually throws freebies in or hooks you up with a deal of sorts.  He is who I will be buying my SB Atlantis Ice Short from, though, SB directly will be who I buy my jar (base) from.  I emailed him about my Platinum Kamanja on my birthday and he told me to call him, and he hooked up up sweet with that, a nice discount for my birthday, a hell of a birthday gift!!  Plus his videos crack me up because of how much shit he gives himself...  Hilarious!!

I admire his honestly I really do but the way he can blatantly bash things can be tiresome. He's been around the industry for quite some time giving him more hookah knowledge than most, I'll even say he has in my opinion the 3rd best bowls but overall the best family of products altogether. Sometimes he is more than off putting in my taste with his remarks though.

I watch every single one of his videos as well, almost in the sense of the private parts Howard stern movie in regards to his haters spending double the time listening to the guy lol, I certainly don't hate him or even dislike him. I think more or less I don't shop with him because small orders tend to be overpriced from him.

I smoke at least a kilo a month but usually split it up around pay checks and making 50 dollar orders every two weeks for only a small amount of shisha when I could go to others and get nearly a kilo has kept me away. I'm pretty frugal with this hobby; never like to spend more than I have to.

Based on my experiences and countless others the next big order will come from him. That seems to be the only justifiable way to spend with him.

True to all you say!  First and foremost, he is a capitalist.  Second of all, he is an opinionated S.O.B., but I like that.  I appreciate the good, bad, and ugly reviews on all things I buy, hookah, cars, snakes, tarantulas, etc.  But when you spend more than $150 he seems to 'butter up' to ya, and make it at least memorable.  Not to mention, Titanium coals are still my go-to's, and though I've tried about a dozen different charcoal companies/configurations, I keep goin' back to, and recommending Titaniums to all my friends.  I will be pickinup up a lounge box of cubes when I order my SB Atlantis Ice Short from him, and just those two pieces alone will make him love me enough to add some goodies.. Buuuut it wont be shisha (thanks dumbass kids ruining a perfectly good thing for me... lolz I ain't mad! Do I sound mad?  Okay, maybe a smidgeon...)

I'm frugal, as well, but in a different way... I like to order big, once or twice a year.  Though I don't go through a kilo a month, I do half that for sure, but I also dont REVIEW EVERY DAMNED ONE OF THEM ON A ROCKIN' YOUTUBE CHANNEL, so I mean, there's that... (Props, hombre!)

Plus he doesn't support 'knock-offs' which is rare these days, especially for a capitalist.  Though I do like his bowl quite a bit, I am eager to try your recommendation on Liberty (it is Liberty, right?  That's your numero uno at the moment?  Who's numero dos, if I may?  You do have exquisite tastes, and I like to broaden my horizons :3   )

Thanks for all you feedback man, you are my go-to shisha advisor, and all of my frands (and girlfriend lolz) can vouch for that!!  Thanks for all you do!!

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

I believe hookahjunkie is still on the 18 and up verification. Smoking hookah is where DD orders all of his stuff and has yet to have a problem. I didn't really like what I saw there considering they had social smoke white rhino which has been discontinued for at least 2 years now but I'm not sure how fresh the others are.

I do know hookahjunkie is moderately fresh with nakhla. He hasn't got the new packaging of nakhla but does sell double apple kilos at 40. Discount code for him is Facebook. It's 10% or so off

I think to switch it up I might try a small order with hookahjunkie but so far smokinghookah has treated me very well. Maybe is because my monthly order is through them but I've yet to come across any expired shisha. I know white rhino was discontinued, but the package had the little pamphlet when I opened it and I had no issue with it. Now I always check the expiration date after that fiasco with al fakher I had from my new local shop.

I did order from 5 star once and it was a good experience but meh. Besides, there's a 15% discount for being a member of hookah.org. 🏻

So...... I promise I haven't abandoned my awesome forum. I've been busy working on hookah.org stuff just outside of the forum.

Been busy up keeping all our social media accounts and promoting as much as humanly possible. Been working on other project as well. Recently I started helping my best friend with his business and on top of that still working on the same project with the Emmy winner producer. Busy. Busy. Busy.

With that said. Tonight I'm relaxing with some inhale shisha 3somenout of my Kahlil Maamoon kahramana, pharaoh's hydra bowl and my hookah stand. I have a newfound love for this inhale brand.

Trifecta recently started selling by the kilo on their website. That's how I feel about enigma and the twist. Both are beyond reproach

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

Made a small order from hookah-shisha... 250g AF Mango (AF is on sale right now!) and 100g SS Citrus Peach.  

I used to love af mango. I haven't had it in a year now. I actually might go get some today lol and I have my citrus peach coming from them tomorrow. Been waiting a week for it and I'm about out of patience since the flavor is so good
