I'm pretty much sure that it's some kind of black tobacco, it's somehow different than usual shisha that we all love. The taste is completely different and one more thing - they smoke it placing the coals DIRECTLY on shisha, without tin foil or metal screen. I suppose the tobacco doesn't have that fruity smell we're used to. Anyways, I suggest you make some research on how to prepare and smoke black shisha. I might be completely mistaken on the whole thing, it's just that the tobacco is completely black from what I saw and there's no fruit or whatsoever drawn on the box, so..

I tried to smoke some with foil. Heavy buzz almost no smoke. The smoke that did come out was harsh. I mixed it with some nakhla double apple. It smokes and the buzz is still heavy. Please post more.

That is Plain Salloum. They make some great fruit flavors too.

It's Salloum Unflavored. You smoke it just like regular shisha. The reason it's harsh is probably because it's dried out. Some honey and glycerin whould freshen it right up.

yep again plain salloum

there is a link floating around that i lost again some how, that is a hookah life page, tells you how to set it up. basically you want a wide shallow bowl or a phunnel with mod, take a small phunnels worth of the tobacco and mix with 1/4 tsp glycerine and 1/8th tsp molasses (black strap) mix well. i like to let it sit to try and get the moisture to penetrate back into the tobacco some.

you wont get a whole lot of smoke out of it but its a nice cool thing to try. you need to rotate your coals often though with it to prevent burning but do not put them on the tobacco, this is just a black style molasses/moassel/shisha set it up pretty much like normal. i use 3 CH coals on a mod bowl and get good results, the page said to start it with 4 and drop to 2 as it gets going, i might try that because i never get it to be harsh or burned even if i let the coals sit so i might not be giving it enough heat to start with

how wet is yours? i got some that was really really dry, like it felt like it was glued together almost, very sticky and very little moisture at all.

im not really knowledgeable on this stuff but i have experimented with this and kass super recently so ill try to answer any questions you have with it either here or if you pm me either way

Well it's very dry - like tar actually. Very high nicotine content ( buzzez like crazy almost made me sick.) I mixed it with some nakhla and it worked well. I will try to rehidrate it see how that goes.

looks like an nice fresh batch. And it's true that some folks smoke this by placing coals directly on the tobacco, But you'll not want to go there.

ya thats how mine is.

man i hate this, i dont get a buzz from anything any more except a touch from tangiers the first few mins and a barely noticeable touch from these types of tobacco, im not really big on the buzz but still. one of my friends that is into hookah gets buzzed really easily and feels it is an essential part of the experience, but he is also still in the clouds being important over flavor stage

I've got to use up the last of my plain Salloum. Think I'll mix it with some Desi and see how that goes.

Smoking with honey now. It's like a good flavored cigar, only without the sore throat.
