what do you smoke when you go to the cafe's?

I started out with Alwaha - it's cheap as chips (ie. you can afford to mess up while learning) and is a good tobacco, I still enjoy it. I then moved on to Nakhla, which is of course all that I could ask for lol.

nakhla DA is a great first smoke. It's a flawless flavor and none is more forgiving regarding heat management.

Al Fakher Mint or Grenadine are great first smokes.

al-fakher has great smoke and flavor but flavors haven't been constant. af is one of my favorites.

nakhla doesn't usually produce huge smoke, but people have packed the bowl different ways to get it going crazy. nakhla usually has more natural flavors and is (i think?) the cheapest shisha you can buy right now.

starbuzz is huge on price, but huge on clouds and flavor too. it's expensive as hell that's why not a lot of people buy it.

i'd reccomend nakhla double apple, and sherezade chocomint(333), and al-fakher vanilla. if you're willing to spend money, then go for some starbuzz citrus mist. tastes like gummy bears.

Alwaha in the 250g box is 5.95-7.95 some places, otherwise nakhla is the cheapest at usually 9.95 but dont let that fool anybody, its the most consistent brand imo. I reccommend learning heat management, packing technique etc before you buy starbuzz @ 23$ per tin, it would make for expensive mistakes. Hookah-Shisha has 3 pack Alwaha 250g for 29$ (Vanilla/5 star/calif dream are great)

and as to smoke volume, get the taste right first and enjoy it. People burn their tobacco all the time trying to get big clouds just for show.

I'd definitely suggest Al Waha, or Nakhla for a first. Variety of flavors, nice and affordable.

I suggest Hookah-Hookah and Hookah Freak. I feel that it is a great brand with varied flavors. It's cheap, washed and well made.

There was another thread on this not long ago at all you might want to read too. There is an orange "Search Forums" button that will help direct you to that.

Anyway, I recommended AF that last time and I'm going to stick with that... Hookah Freak and Hookah Hookah are good recommendations too but Al Fakher is just your best choice imo.

personally, Al Waha or Havana, or possibly some AF... if you can find old batches. Otherwise if you think you can handle the nicotine, Nakhla. From there, branch off depending on your preference of flavors.

Yeah.... My first smoke was DA which totally put me off (please don't stone me), but once I got something I could stomache flavor wise, I was hooked. (I found a store with Havana & AW)

Al Fakher Watermelon, any Al Fakher fruit flavors that seem nice to you. It's relatively easy to manage your heat with AF.
