Default Sour Flavors

For quite a while I've been looking for a sour flavor. Not citrusy, just sour. Something like sour gooseberries, cranberries, green apples, that kinda thing. Its been surprisingly hard to find a flavor that is actually sour and not 'sweet & sour' or citrusy.

Any suggestions?

A couple......

Tangiers does some decent Sour flavors. Brambleberry, Blackberry and Noir “Sour” are all, well, sour.

Nirvana Cold Sweat is a fairly sour citrus blueberry mint.

Ugly Sgt Huckleberry is a tasty sour blue raspberry.... to name a few

I've actually order some Tangiers Sour and am waiting for it to arrive. Is is a mixer or something I could smoke solo?

Both. It mixes well with pretty much any fruit flavor ( makes a tasty mix with tang maraschino cherry ), but i liked it as a stand alone flavor

Still waiting for them to clear customs It seems likely that UK orders from hookah-shisha do get caught by customs and my previous order wasn't just unlucky.

I'll let you know what I think of them when I get them once I try them, it's gonna take quite a while though.

I quite like the Cherry flavour, but Sour is too subtle, underwhelming imo.

Yeah, cherry is a challenging flavor to get right. Tang does a good job with Maraschino Cherry.
I liked the Sour. Sorry it didnt work out for you. Its sometimes like that with Tang. Certain flavors can be inconsistent batch to batch. I find that with Welsh Cream and the K flavors, where CM, orange soda, horchata, and absinthe, for instance, have always treated me right. ( and bacon was horrid, but i couldnt resist..... twice.)

I took my time before posting cause every time I smoked Sour, it felt like if I pack it differently next time, it will give more flavour. But I am several bowls in and still can't shake the feeling that there can be more to it. It tastes like I mixed a tiny bit of it into some other tobacco, very subtle. So maybe it is a consistency issue.
