Default Question on Tobacco

After opening up a package of shisha tobac and storing it in an air tight tupperware container how long will it last? I bought a 250g box and have quite a bit! It may take me a while to smoke it. So how long will it last? If it goes bad how will I know? Will it give off a bad smell or grow a nasty fuzz? Any help would be appreciated.

i have year old AF that is just fine. as long as it's air tight i don't think tobacco can go bad like getting mold on it. i use ziploc twist and lock containers (the small size) and they are absolutely perfect for a 250g

if you have shisha tobacco airtight, in room temperature, and not in direct sunlight, it will last for many years. if you're going to store it for awhile though i would suggest maybe putting it all in a ziploc bag, squeeze the air out of it, and then put the bag in a gladware container.

I have some that is going on three years now and does just fine. The production companies say 2 years but I would imagine that depends on quality of manufacture and your storage. I finished off some 06 AF grape that was perfect and have some licorice and plum AF from that same year that still smokes very well.

Honey and glycerin are both natural preservatives. Most tobacco that includes either of these can last a very long time. I have some that is over two years old that is still perfect being kept in nothing more than ziploc bags.
