Default Royal Praparat Tobacco - Should I be smoking it?!

Hey peeps!

Now I wouldnt call myself an experienced hookah smoker...in fact im a bit of a noob when it comes to smoking it at home (I generally smoke it at cafes and lounges!)

OK...so I went to Edgware Road in London to the famous Al Mustafa store to get some tobacco...after much deliberation I thought I would go for a brand I hadn't tried called Royal Praparat - apparently made in the EU and it was two 250g tubs for 15 (bargain!)

Anyways, I'm smoking it and it is quite pleasant but I almost choked when I read the tub...in broken english it reads the following:

'WARNING: do not eat and do not smoke'

erm...ok!

The ingredients are:

malt, tobacco, glycerine, flavour, dye

Now from what I see, it doesn't appear that it is going to kill me but that warning is really playing on my mind every puff I take!

Can someone put me out of my misery and tell me if I am boarding a smokey train straight to hell?!

Cheers!

Well do not eat is obvious.

Do not smoke is just covering their asses from lawsuits....everyone knows you shouldn't smoke. ^_^ Now they tell you on the container not to smoke it; so if u get sick smoking it; not their fault. Lol

interesting. Seems like a decision on the part of the company to sell it as a non smoking product. Everything in the mix seems legit. Malt is probably a mistranslation of molasses or it actually could be a light malt. Either way it will be fine. Considering one of the ingredients is "flavoring" it is obviously intended to be tasted. Should be perfectly fine but I too would love to see pictures of this.

The malt mentioned as an ingredient is most like likely maltodextrine which helps to add a sense of body and sweetness to a great many foods and beverages. I never tried using it with tobacco so I don't know what effect it would have.

OK guys...as promised (a bit late)...here are the pics!




I smoked a few bowls of it the other night and may I say it is quite possibly the nicest shisha I have smoked!

It is a very bizarre substance, it is made up from heavily dyed leaves, I've never seen anything like it before! Also you need to put two quick-lights on the bowl to get a decent amount of smoke from it but considering there is two coals, it actually tastes really smooth.

500g for 15 can't be all bad right?! Still tastes better than that Nakhla shit!

NO! don't smoke it! i hear it has tobacco in it, and do you know what tobacco can do to you? well? do you? i hear it can give you cancer! i advise you to dispose of it immediately in an environmentally safe way, like take it to your nearest fire dept. they should have a working knowlege of hazmat materials.

great F*in Jiminy, you're lucky i was here. just in time too, to save you from the dangers of yourself.

I must admit, it is actually some really nice shisha!

It is very bizarre though, it consists of sticky leaves and twigs and only burns when there are two charcoals burning...it literally does not even smoke with one!

The taste is really quite sweet and tastes more like cherry than any other shisha brand I have tried!

So all is not lost!

I was on the edgware road the other day and couldnt find "The" famous Al Mustafa store. There are many shops on that road called AlMustafa but I could only find pitiful selections of shisha hidden behind the counters. Which end of the road is it and can you describe what the shop looks like please.

Cheers
