Default Fresher shisha if you buy online?

I was just wondering if every shisha you buy from online is fresh.

What I mean by that is, is it better than buying from some stores? Because sometimes when I purchase starbuzz from my local shop it doesnt seem that wet/juicy and I was wondering if the people that have orderd starbuzz from online have that same result or is theres actually wet and juicy?

I would imagine online stores shisha will be fresher because I m sure they sell much more volume than a local B&M shop would.

However, it probably does vary by flavor. Who really buys like starbuzz double apple or something like that...so that stuff might be older.

Well it depends. Many online stores are also stores on the street. It is hard to tell whether their shisha is fresh or not, but your best bet is to buy from either trustworthy vendors, or vendors that get it straight from the company. Like Sahara Smoke, they get their HH and HF straight from the company. Most of the vendors who also sell HH/HF buy it from sahara smoke, thus some of the other vendors will have older shisha. But issues of the quality of shisha can root back to the actual manufacturers. Like AF, sometimes you can get a flavor that is really hard to smoke due to excessive throat irritation. Sometimes adding honey or letting it accimilate can help, but i think you get the idea.

SB varies pretty drastically from blend to blend. But to answer the question I would think so. Truth be told if stored properly shisha tobacco will last for a ridiculously long time.

Im with you on that one, and also when you buy the Shisha it has a date on it, when it was made. Most the times it's fresh because it is concealed it the packet.

For people who want to try lots of new shisha, i reccomend buying some of them from the clearance section at hookah-shisha. Theres lots of great stuff in there and nothing will be completely dried out. And just make sure you have some honey on hand.

No. I have bought Salloum online and knew it was going to be drier than most due to lack of sales on that brand. Some brands/flavors just don't move so they sit and age. Even from the high volume vendors your going to have flavors that even they can't sell easily. As Coldgr33ntea said, just have some wetting agents on hand and you will be fine. As for Starbuzz, the stuff I have picked up online was just as fresh as the stuff in my local overpriced shop.
