Apparently the family makes this stuff tells me that if the interest is high enough they will try to get small but regular shipments sent off to the U.S. (indierctly of course). Needless to say, small craft producers do face periodic distruptions and the U.S. is going out it's way to start a war with Iran so nothing is certain. Still, it's encouraging that a craft producer wants to sell in the states since in my experience they could care less about selling outside of the Middle East even when they have the ablity to do so.
I think that it's great that they are even considering doing regular shipments to the states. I am sure that there will be enough interest with the growing appreciation for non-fruity/traditional hookah tobacco. I check this post regularly hoping that good news is on the horizon.
