Thumbs up Ordering from John tomorrow...

Hey guys, just wondering what you thought of my probable order from John tomorrow. The hose I definitely NEED, but I might be persuaded to buy other shisha...

I've been contemplating what to buy since Sunday.

1x Grand Washable Egyptian Hose
250g Nakhla Chocomint
250g Nakhla Sweet Melon
250g Nakhla Double Apple
250g Starbuzz Blue Mist
50g Al Fakher Cafe Latte (yum!)

All in all it will be about 80 dollars, including shipping. It's too bad I don't have more to spend because I really, really want to try some Tangiers.

Tell me what you think. Oh and I haven't tried any of those shisha except for the Cafe Latte.... Mmm...

The only flavor of Nakhla I've tried is their double apple and for me not liking anise a whole lot it was one of the better ones I have tried. Blue Mist is good I think the flavor is pretty refreshing but maybe a bit overrated...I think I prefer the Citrus Mist.

I have some Citrus Mist and I really like it. It's just so tasty.

I'm thinking about dropping the Blue Mist and the Sweet Melon. SB is just too expensive, and I'm not a huge melon fan (even though I'm sure I'd enjoy it.)

the only thing I would change would be the hose to a Razan Hose. because imo they are easier to clean.

i prefer the nammor hoses, never held that hose
tobaccos:
-hell yes
-decent, its great at first but after a few smokes it gets to be very ripe (great to mix with citrus flavors)
-o ya, great DA, make sure to leave a decent gap and tamp it nicely (i found that makes it smoke a bit better that way)
-ehh its ok, not bad but it is pretty candyish
-never had that AF so idk, not a fan of AF though, if it was me i would buy the nakhla version

good order though, make sure you have enough coals

Thanks for the replies.

I will get the 100g tin of Blue Mist if that's what I go with. And thanks for the tips for the hose too, it's only like a 2 dollar difference or so, so I'll grab that.

And I really liked the Cafe Latte obviously, so I'll have to find out if the Nakhla Coffee is good... Take a gander at the reviews and all.

Infamous double post time! So there's only ONE review on Nakhla Arabic Coffee so... Hmm. I guess I'll go with:

250g Nakhla DA
250g Nakhla Chocomint
100g SB Blue Mist
1x Razan hose: red. It looks wonderful.
250g Salloum plain (thanks for that thread FBD!)
250g Tangiers Lucid Brambleberry (I could use a good shisha ass kicking though so I might have to switch to original tangiers!)

Thanks for the help guys! If anyone has tried Nakhla Arabic Coffee please post a review for us!

make sure you get you glycerine and honey/molasses before your order comes if you dont have it on hand yet because you will want to try it

About the over-ripe tasting thingy... i believe that happens with everything you smoke too much. If i smoke it too often u get the same feeling but i believe it's all in the mind. Same happens with every grape flavoured tobacco i smoke.

I think your right. I actually couldnt smoke my Citrus Mist for the longest time because it is just sooo tasty, if that makes sence. They do such a good job of making it that you only need to try it once kinda. But right now i just put some in, and it is strong, but i got lots of ice to tame it down.
