Re: Newbie Shisha Recomendations
As far as coals are concerned, you will get as many people saying coconara, exotica, and *******.
I personally use Coconara for now and they have been good, they last a long time. Any of the above are better than quicklights, yuck.
For tobacco, I'd try a few diff brands, Nakhla, some Al Fahker, Starbuzz etc will all have their fans here.
Nakhla and Alwaha are my favorite atm, they are a great value, but I agree with John, try several brands, 50g packs and find what you like. There are tons of reviews on here.
