Default Re: Which shisha's have the best heat tolerance

Id say the more traditional (not soaked in candied saliva) tobaccos take heat way better than modern brands...[quote]

You're close. This has more to do with the water content in the tobaccos. The less water (as in Nahkla, etc) that a tobacco contains, the more heat thats needed to really get it going. Conversely, brands that contain tons of water such as Al Waha or HH need more attention. This doesn't make them better or worse, it just makes them more heat sensitive.
