Default Tobacco For Beginners...

Hey all. I have been smoking Hookah for about 5 years. I used it to quit smoking 4 years ago and since then I only smoke Herbal Shisha. I would like to get back into enjoying tobacco. I had a couple of 50g packs of Nakhla (now about 3 years old but still sealed). It was actually quite moist. I absolutely hated it. It really blew away my throat and I was buzzed for 20 minutes!
I saw in the reviews section that most say it is one of the stronger tobacco's. Anyone have any suggestions as to a good tobacco shisha that is considered mild and generally doesn't give to much of a buzz? I don't care much about nicotine so that isn't an issue. Just a good mild smoke. Flavors aren't that important. I like most anything except mint or really fake flavors like bubble gum. As always thanks for your suggestions!
I did search and read through a couple of older threads about this subject but figured I would get some new opinions.

I would try out Hookah Hookah or Hookah Freak. These are really washed and generally give no buzz whatsoever. The do have a few great flavors too, some of my favorites are irish cream and cranberry.

I saw that on the review section that they have little to no buzz. I love Irish cream. Might be a good contender. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hookah Freak Smashing Pumpkin.

You might get something that isn't so ridiculously washed too, like Al Waha?

AF some flavours give me a buzz, but JM and starbuzz seems to be pretty low on the buzz

Personally right now I think the best on the market for beginners is Royalty Tobacco. A little high priced but very nice, no buzz. AF is what my wife smokes but I've been hearing bad things about the "new" formula. Havana isn't bad but the flavors are real light to me.

If you don't want the buzz stay away from Nakhla, Saloum, and Tangiers.

I haven't tried HH or HF so I couldn't say about them.

I also like smoother or washed tobacco, but I do like a little bit of Al-Waha mixed with anything lighter.
I started mixing 1/3 Al-Waha Roses with 2/3 fruit flavors (grape, apple) any brand that is smooth, and I really like that.
But you have to like the flowery flavor
So you could smoke the stronger stuff you have just mix it in with something very mild that .05 nicotine, like the forum is suggesting, Starbuzz is one of them.

hh/hf would probably be ok, just make sure to stay lighter on the heat.
SB is ok, might give a bit of a buzz though but it should be pretty smooth but the flavors might be too candy ish for you
al waha could be a decent choice, they have some good and some bad stuff

nakhla if its old might be killing your throat more than fresh will, i got apple that was pretty moist when i started with nakhla but the smoke was a bit weak on it and it got a little to much for me at first.

For the Royalty I will suggest the Apple Bahraine. I just did a review on it the other day. I can definately say it is good.
