Default About to buy shisha.

I'm about to buy shisha,

I'm thinking a 3x 250g pack Al Fakher & 3x 250 pack of Starbuzz
The order is as follows:

Al Fakher:

Grape
Mint
Golden Eskandrani Apple (sour apple)

Starbuzz:

irish cream
white peach
marlett

Am I buying to much at once? Is there flavors I should change?
I smoke usually on the weekends with friends, so really, is this to much at once?

get the starbuzz or hookah hookah. both are good, starbuzz has a lot of flavors and its generally a strong flavor. the big thing HH has going at it is hazelnut, starbuzz has quite a few and out of over sixty flavors you are certain to find one you enjoy.

I'd skip the Starbuzz personally. Just way too expensive to even try for my taste. I'd hop on the sale Nazar Hookah is having and get a tub of Al-Waha Bounty and After-Nine for less than $8, those are some great flavors (chocolate coconut & chocolate mint)

Great flavor choices! The only thing I would change is the AF Mint and get Strawberry instead. Thats my personal opinion though, the other flavors are spot on for my tastes though.

I say dump the AF Apple, and get Mango and/or Strawberry.

Ohh, and Hookah Hookah makes a great Irish Cream, just the same as SB, only ALOT cheaper. I'd get HH and save a bundle. Switch the SB Irish Cream flavor with Fuzzy Navel.

af eskandarani apple is one of the best flavors out there in my opinion and af mint is always good to have on hand as a mixer. af is a mollasses based shisha produced in the united arab emirates, and sb is a glycerin based domesticly produced product, so you've definitely cast a wide net. As a personal prefference, I tend to shy away from the glycerin, and the price of starbuzz in my opinion is a bit too high.I've heard Fusion brand is similar to sb and about 5 bux cheaper per tub. I've tried it, it's not bad.

Is SB Peach much different from their White Peach? I found white peach to taste soapy.

Nah... I don't think its too much...If you only smoke on weekends, that's great! Because then you won't be restocking any time soon... I smoke 7 days a week, and three tubs usually last me about 2 full months... so figure if you smoke less than me and you're buying 6 tubs, you'll problaby have enough for almsot close to a year...Those are good choices for Starbuzz, but I want to recommend Blueberry-Grape... this flavor is AWESOME!!! White Peach and Marlette are REALLY good as well! Enjoy...

PS. Don't pay attention to the Starbuzz haters! They're just too cheap and stingy to afford it! Trust me you'll thank yourself later

I'd skip the SB too. AF Mint, is a GREAT choice. SB tastes like chemicals IMO. Same with HH. The Golden Esk. Apple is not sour... it is a light, mellow apple. Which tastes nothing like anise, which is a plus for me. Post a review of the white grape, I've never tried it.

HH Hazelnut and Irish Cream for the win

AF Mint is better as a Mixer than smoked alone. Grape is killer and Esk Apple is my TOP favorite of all time.

Otherwise, I have all of those flavors stocked reg in my cupboard. AF is always a solid choice, SB - if you've tried them before and enjoyed them, go for it. If not, you may want to get a 100g pack of the flavors first (although your choice of flavors are in the top 10 IMO).

But the other's selections are very good too: HH Halzenut is top notch. Al Waha AfterNine & Bounty are excellant as well (Try the Kiwi - so so yummie as well ]. Al Fakher Strawberry is good, but a accquired taste - creamy strawberry, with a slight undertone of coconut. Reminds me of a Strawberry Creamsaver candy.

Good luck and happy ordering!

af mint by itself is awesome. every breath feels so cool and if you drink some ice cold water its so cold. was the second flavor i tried to smoke and it was awesome, i got sick after smoking it but thats because i smoked it too quickly and got sick due to too much co2.

I am totally diggin' your list! All great flavors that I really like!

If you want to switch anything up, the only thing I would switch is to try the Hookah Hookah Hazelnut instead of the Starbuzz Irish Cream. Don't get me wrong, the Irish Cream is great!
