Default What is the proper way to store shisha?

I think I posted something like this before but noone really answerd my question.

I always get a ziplock bag for my starbuzz and put it in the tin can but sometimes I feel like it loses flavor still, is double bagging it "over-doing" it?

I feel like thats what I got to do, I just put in a order on h-s i'm getting about 1000g of different assorted shishas and I dont want them to get bad by the time i'm done with them.

Here is what i'm getting:

Fantasia - pink lemonade
Starbuzz - apple martini
- strawberry daiquiri
- blueberry grape (any tried this b4?)
Al Fakher - mint

Store it how you want. Keep it at room temperature, and out of direct sunlight. A ziplock bag, a plastic snap lid container, a glass clamp top jar, or a mason jar all work fine.

Jars/Tupperware store the flavor the best

Also even if its sealed don't let it sit in your car and go from 50 degree to 90 degree weather daily. Ruined alot of my nakhla/starbuzz last week It doesnt taste as great

Depends on what it is. If its own container seals fine I use it, ie Al Fakher, Hookah Hookah. If not then I use ZipLoc bags or tubs.

I use a zip seal bag, and then a plastic container. It seems to work pretty well .

yeah.... it doesnt really matter how you store it as long as you keep it air tight, and dont expose it to too much heat and stuff. I generally will take stuff like Starbuzz out of its bag and put it in a ziplock, rol it up and restore it to its original tin.

I put my nakhla in tupperware. Same goes for tangiers.

But stuff like HH, HF, AF and fantasia... i just leave it in its original packaging. just so long as it doesnt loose any of its juice, because thats never good.

Clamp jars have worked the best for me.

personally i would recomemend a humidor keeps a good consistancy leave it in the package and just drop it in the humidor or ziploc and the fridge since another tecnique i have heard is get 2 large ziplocs put it in then add a small container of water make sure its got a top on it with holes poked in it so the shisha can draw moisture from the water that outta do the trick
