Default Whats with all the hype on Mizo Mint?

Don't get me wrong it's good but has no one tried nakhla mint? Its alot better IMO, its more natural and traditional compared to Mizo mint.

I've tried a few mints... Nakhla, Al Waha and Al Fakher.

I'd give Nakhla mint 6.5/10 well its traditional yes but by that I mean totally unrefined in terms of flavour and taste.

Al Waha mint (comes in a tin dyed green) 9.5/10 probably one of the few Al Waha flavours I really like

and Al Fakher mint 9/10

I don't usually smoke a whole bowl of mint straight up...I use it as a mixer with double apple, lemon and stuff.

Havent heard of Mizo in the uk to be perfectly honest.

I've never tried Nakhla mint but I have smoked a lot of Mizo mint. It just feel very cooling going in kind of like listerine IDK if the reg line mint has that effect

Nakhla Mint isn't bad, it's a great mixer. Just not as smooth as some of the mints I've had. Including AW and AF mint. But still a great mixer.

I got if from the US.

I wouldn't say Nakhla mint is unrefined, the flavour is of a natural mint i.e the plant whereas mizo mint is of a candy type of mint flavour.

I'm not a fan of either, if I want a mint I basically smoke Epic Peppermint exclusively.

Good to know, I might not try mizo mint as quickly now. The reason I like the nakhla mint better than AF is because it has less of a candy taste to it.

I absolutely love Nakhla Mint (non-mizo).

I dont care about clouds so the natural mint leaf taste is a winner for me.

mizo mint is hands down my favourite shisha. it's always consistant, has the best flavour and it stays on your breath for a long time after. it's also the only shisha i've received zero complaints from non-smokers about the smell of it

I haven't tried the Mizo mint, but I just ordered some regular Nakhla mint - a replacement for my last batch

I've only smoked it straight a couple of times - it's a pretty intense, natural mint flavor. I'm not so big on the candy-flavored shishas, so it suits me fine. Absolutely fantastic mixer - probably my all-time favorite there.

Come on.... Mizo mint is like the best tobacco ever. I love to smoke it straight. I think i am going to finish off the last of my 250 later on today as a special treat for myself.

As someone who has smoked both normal Nakhla Mint and Mizo Mint, I have to say that Normal Nakhla Mint takes the cake. Mizo mint is nice, but it is like the candy type of mint flavor, dont get me wrong, its nice, but i only use it as a mixer because it goes well with fruit flavors. Now, Normal Nakhla Mint has this eukalyptus taste to it. It tastes like a mint plant, and with the unwashed tobacco, you get a huge buzz and great flavor. When i smoke Nakhla Mint I almost always smoke it alone, or i mix it with DA. Its such a unique and amazing flavor, it cant be smoked with other things well. Also, to the people complaining about the flavor freezing your throat, toughen up. I fill my vase with ice then put a little water in until it gets to the right height. That is the best way to smoke this. Its more of a sipper smoke than a SB Clusterf#@k cloud.

The one and only Nakhla Mint.

Um, Mizo is Nakhla. Traditional? I use quicklights, Razan hose, and phunnel bowls so tradition means nothing to me. IMO the flavor in Nakhlas Mizo mint line is much stronger, making it a far better mint mixer than the regular line. But again this is all IMO. And yes before anyone bothers I have both lines in the cabinet so know full well what my O is.
