Default Where do you guys put your tobacco?

I hear and see that alot of people put their tobacco into plastic containers? Does it keep the tobacco more juicy and fresh or is it for organization purposes? Why not just leave it in the plastic bagging that came with the shisha.

But that's where you pack everything. At least you never have to worry about losing your car keys

I put it in Mason Jars. It looks nicer IMO, and has a foolproof seal.

Challenge accepted!

I keep my nak in round ziplock containers and my tangiers in flat pack gladware. It makes for easy storage and organization.

Are those the ones with the green lids? I bought a 4-pack of those to try out and they don't have a very tight seal. I'm wondering if I should get better containers or not, because I need to buy a lot more for the rest of my tobacco.

I find that it has 3 purposes. It keeps it fresh, its easier to stir it up which makes the bowls more consistent, and it makes it easier to organize everything.

I am honestly think of buying one of those vacuum sealing machines for those special baggies and for jars. I been thinking about it a while now and it seems this would perhaps keep tobacco fresh like forever or something. This is a quote from 'A Tale of Two Cities'.

yeap those are them,they also come in light green. I haven't had any problem with any of mine drying out. I have nak and Tangiers stored in them. also DM but it's in the frig, too. The others are stored in a spare bedroom with the heat vent closed.

I love my cheap, store-brand Tupperware containers. 2 bucks gets me six of them. Keeps them fresh. I then store the containers in my china cabinet in the darkest corner of my den. Considering mo'assel contains leaves, keeping them away from light and extra moisture is a good idea to prevent loss of flavor and potential decomposition. Though most modern mo'assels do have preservatives of some sort.

Yup, granny apple green. I guess I'll just buy a bunch more of those instead of the more expensive name-brand ones.

I leave all my tobacco in the original plastic it came in inside the packaging. Then when i am done removing tobacco i fold the packaging and close it with a paperclip. Then i seal it once again in a zip lock container. Works very well.

Is that why blackleaf leaves that distinct odor in my stem and base?

I think it was TAP who said that since Zaghloul is fermented, it needs air or it will rot. For everything else though, I think it's a good idea. Imagine Nak DA...as fresh as the first bowl every time. Nice.

I place mine in mason jars or tupperware and kept out of direct sunlight. This keeps the shisha from drying out. If I have 50g boxes, I just place the shisha bag in a ziplock sammich bag and then put it back in the box.

I put mine in ziplock bags, then put the bags in labeled dollar store Tupperware. Unless its tangiers, then I get the wide shallow Tupperware so I can stir it.

I have these sealed little glass jars I get from a dollar store, they work well. Just ring out all the juicy goodness and put them on display.

I just stick the tobacco in a zip lock bag, then stick it back in the original box. I like having the box around, so I dont have to label it, and can see at a glance which flavor is which. Then when I go to smoke, I just work around the tobacco with my fingers from the outside to stir it up before opening again

Yea I just leave it in the original packaging and box that it came in. Although using tupper ware is not a bad idea. I think that it would be a good experiment to see if it actually works.

Default Re: Where do you guys put your tobacco?

usually I buy mine 50G at a time so I leave it in the original plastic then put it in snack size ziplocks then back in the original box. (I agree with danath 34) lots less hassle... If its really moist when I get to the last bowl I'll carefully open the plastic till it lays flat and scrape the last tiny bits off with a knife or razorblade.. I'm poor I try to get every last bit out...
