Default In a shisha rut...any ideas for me...?

I haven't posted in forever, but have been hittin' the hookah.

Hubby and I just got to the bottom of a kilo of SB blue mist, so it is time to reorder.

Blue Mist is not all we smoke but it is the base flavor of the majority of our bowls and we usually add a little nakhla mizo mint and one other flavor out of our stasha (we like nakhla coconut, banana, and several AF flavors - cinnamon, peach, 2 apple etc).

So my debate here is, do I just stick with old reliable and order another Kilo of Blue Mist and maybe a couple 250g blenders we like, or just buy all new flavors/brands that we haven't ever tried?

This is not a really cheap hobby/vice and I hate to waste money, but I do have several shishas that we will never smoke (a lemon, guava, and a couple others that just don't taste good) and I hate the thought of having a bunch of misses in this order.

Anyone like the stuff I like who has a recommendation for me?

Thanks - Josie

you could trade the tobacco you dont like with some of the forum members to try out different tobaccos. that way if you are traded one you like you can order it later.

+1 I wouldn't have tried 1/10th the shisha tobacco flavors I've tried without trading with forum members.

Blue Mist is great, but i think you guys should go and try everything there is. I think that you should take this order and order a bunch of 50g's of different stuff. Nakhla, AF, Fantasia, Fumari, Tangiers, Romman, whatever you can find that has good reviews. Just order some 50's and 100's and then after that, you will have a wider variety of what you like. And worse comes to worse, you buy another kilo of blue mist.

Before you jump off the end and start ordering anything take BIGPOPPAS advice and offer the flavors you have, but don't want, for trade. 50g samples in ziplocs mailed in padded envelopes still cost less to ship than a 50g at any online vendor. There is also a trade review section so you can see if the one your trading with is a good trader or has issues.

Move to Dubai. You will find more options than you could ever imagine.

i would have to agree with the others who say that you should order smaller sizes of a wide variety of brands and flavors. The best vendors for this are **********.com and TheHookahStore.com. They have a pretty similar inventory as far as tobacco goes and both are priced very well.

I actually think you might be a little better off with THS on this. I like alot of hookah-hookah flavors, and he carries those, unlike john. PLus he has all the AF, Nak, Sallaam and stuff that john carries.

I recommend you pick up HH Lemonaid, Irish Cream, Blueberry (especially since you like Blue Mist), Key Lime Pie. Also, HF Scooby Snack and Spiced Apple Cider.
