Default Phunnel question

Whats the difference between the Tangiers funnel bowls and regular ones?
And what would happen if UK customs found 2kg of shisha tobacco, 1kg coal and a hookah? Would they make me pay taxes or what?

Thanks

Tangiers "Funnel" Bowls are the originals made by eric from Tangiers and the "regular ones you are referring to are the generic chinese ones. Main difference is the height of ythe hole in the generic one is taller. For you 2nd question, you have to pay duties on your package if you wanted it, or it would be sent back to the seller.

If your unsure what bowl to get, go for the tangiers over the generic. Foil doesn't get sucked down then.

The website I was going to order from, hasn't got them in stock at the moment. So I was wondering whether I should use the ceramic Mya bowl the hookah came with or the generic funnel?

the Mya bowl isn't that great I've been using it for the past week and just ordered a Vortex and Tangiers Phunnel I got tired of burning my Shisha due to the Mya being too shallow IMO.

I got my Tangiers funnel bowl about a week a go and its defiantly worth every penny.

We sell both the Tangier's and the chinese phunnel bowl. Both types of bowls tend to work the same for me. I don't notice a difference between one or the other.

To answer your question on taxes, you would have to pay 15% on VAT, if they opened thew package and found the invoice, and for the 2kg of tobacco about 150-200 in taxes
