Re: Stocking up!
As others have pointed out, there many brands of shisha/tobacco available. Since you're new to the hobby I suggest you try as many brands and flavours as possible (with the exception of brands like Al-waha and Afzal because IMO they're generally not that great) so that you can make up your own mind as to what brand and flavours you prefer.
You must keep in mind that some tobacco brands are only available in certain countries whereas others are widely available so depending on where you live in the world you might have a limited selection to chose from.
