but yeah welcome to the club, i started out smoking nakhla as well and to this day it's still my favorite brand. i haven't had the apricot, but strawberry isn't a very outstanding flavor. don't get me wrong it's good, but it's mediocre compared to some other amazing flavors nakhla has to offer.
you could try double apple, but it has a pretty strong anise flavor, strongly resembling black licorice. if you're into that kind of stuff i'm sure you'll love it. single apple has no anise flavor, though. i'm surprised this hasn't been suggested yet, but mandarin is another great flavor by nakhla you should try out.
i found that mixing sweet mellon works well, i did 50/50 with orange and it was ok, still a bit strong, i think if i play around with it i can find a decent blend with it. for double apple i dont think the anise flavor is very strong, in fact i dont really notice it much, then again i like anise flavor (but not a fan of black licorice)
i really like earl grey but i like the tea too, its nice to mix with some cinnamon and a touch of cardamon or some citrus flavors
