Default Best Earl Grey and coffee?

Sup HP, I feel like trying out some Earl grey shisha. There's the obvious Nakhla, but what other manufacturers make this flavor?

Also, does anyone recommend Baja Kahlua as the best coffee shisha?

i dont know of any other main lines with earl grey but Nakhla is all you need, exactly like the tea (and i am picky with my teas and drink nice loose leaf teas). nakhla is perfect with earl grey

no help on the coffee flavor, i dont smoke them and dont drink coffee

Earl Grey tea is a tea blend with a distinctive flavour and aroma derived from the addition of oil extracted from the rind of the bergamot orange, a fragrant citrus fruit.
Interestingly enough, the bergamot orange is green in colour

I think that Nakhla is the only one that makes earl grey. Now coffee flavors there is one that is great to me... its Al Sultan Cappuccino.. best I've smoked

It is supposed to taste like earl Gray tea. Its one of the most famous teas in The UK. It's a citrus/bitter flavour but the shisha is more subtle than the actual tea. Very good shisha (from Nakhla ofc)

Best coffee is too relative. Do you like coffee drinks? or strictly black coffee? Kahlua isn't a black coffee drink, it's a mixed one.

What I got from Nakhla Earl Grey was a more prominent flavor than from the tea, but it was more on the flowery side compared to the tea.

Like others have said i think Nakhla is the only company that makes Earl Grey shisha tobacco. I'm a tea fan and I love that flavor. I noticed that you can get 2 different flavors if you exhale through your mouth and nose seperately. Very cool! I think Baja Kahlua is the best coffee shisha I've tried.

Hmm that reminds me of an unopened pack of nakhla earl grey i have sitting around. I think I'll give it a go tonight

Oh, and layalina makes a cappuccino flavor that's decent.

Tyvm I've ordered both! Can't wait to try them out. I'm in the mood for something other than the regular fruit flavors and I happen to love tea and coffee.

I also bought like almost all of the Saalaam flavors and will write reviews on them.
