Default Nakhla

I think i'm going to make the switch over to nakhla since I see alot of people on hp talking about how godly it is.

One of the reasons i'm switching over is because I hear that nakhla can take heat, is this true? I hate having to constanly manage my heat with other shishas maybe this can change everything.

Nakhla is not a temperamental shisha....it does take heat well, but will still burn just like any other shisha if you fail at heat management/packing.

Nakhla needs a lot of skill to get it smoking, without burning it.

Nakhla and Salloum are all I will order now.

If you want fantastic, clean, natural flavours then these two brands are the best IMO.

I thought it needed alot of skill when i started out but then I realized its very easy to smoke properly.


BTW, if you mix a little Nakhla Earl Grey with Nakhla Double Apple, it enhances the apple flavour A LOT.

I was just watching a couple of reviews and I think I am planning on ordering some Mizo peach, mizo white grape, mandarin, and sheherazade marguerita. The videos I watched they had pretty good ratings.

it doesnt really take that much effort or skill to set up. To get OPTIMAL results, it is a lot more difficult, but and scub on the streets can get nakhla smoking.

Just be prepared for a whole new kind of buzz, if you have never had an unwashed tobacco before. lol

I need to try it the right way.

Oh... it was apple flavor.
Be very careful. I can see it coming with more of this being mentioned.



Back on subject......

You won't be disappointed with Nakhla. When I was ready everyone recommended Peach and Sweet Melon to start off with. Wise choices. It is a godly Moassel. I now have Peach, Sweet Melon,, Strawberry, Sweet Molasses, and Apricot in my stash. Looking to get Coffee, Mint, Double Apple soon.

I've found that Nakhla is much easier than any other brand I've tried. The cut is good and it does take heat well. Of course its subject to the normal pitfalls of hookah such as over packing, but its a great shisha unless you dont like unwashed shisha. It has nicotine and plenty of it. It doesnt have the longevity that a glycerin tank will, but it is very satisfying.

I've been smoking Nakhla DA for 7 years and I think they make the best DA flavor .. however, I am not a big fan of the other flavors that they make.

Nakhla doesn't take any skill to smoke good, for instance, i smoked some mizo mint from a small funnel bowl last night, just pack it down in the funnel bowl, holes everywhere, 3 cocobrico coals.

The session lasted at least an hour and a half.

Looks at all this heat management and packing lol Take small Egyptian bowl sprinkle nakhla in to just below rim foil the bowl single layer hd foil Poke 7 holes with toothpick 1 in center and 6 around midway between center and rim make sure to push the toothpick to the bottom of the bowl light one QL 33 mm Al Waha wait for it to ash over place on bowl and smoke soon clouds and flavor will rush over you lasts for about close to an hour on the small bowl no moving or ashing when the smoke thins out the coal should be done and the nakhla as easy as that.

Works for me and have not had a harsh smoke yet from burning just purge regularly to get rid of stale smoke

BEWARE IF YOU ARE NOT USED TO NAKHLA THE BUZZ WILL GET YOU AND NO CHAINING OR YOUR @SS WILL BELONG TO THE GOD NAKHLA

nakhla is my standard,

margarita is good, a bit more candyish than i usually like but its nice. the mandrin is good but i found it has more of a bite from the flavor compared to orange but tastes almost identical (with orange being a bit stronger but smoother).

the biggest issue with nakhla people have is that they just pull a bit off the brick that comes out of the bag, you need to pull it out of all the packaging, put it in a sandwich bag and mix it up and break it up well, other than that its good to go

I pack it like Tangiers. I store it like Tangiers. Put it in some polypropolene (sp?) containers and spread it out. These containers will usually have the number 5 in the middle of the recycling symbol on the container. Anything elese usually imparts a scent or absorbs flavoring.

its a good smoke but for me the more i smoked it the more it became to much, just kinda overly strong/ripe. it tastes exactly like a cantaloupe though no lie, my friend wanted to try it mixed a while ago and i mixed it heavy on the orange and it was good, killed the over ripeness
