SS is made in small batches in a village in Syria. It hardly makes it out of the country, let alone to the US. We were lucky enough to have a member who came across some in Syria and kindly shared w/the HP community. I smoked some the other night in fact.

I have one full box of Star Al-Barudi, about 100g of the July 14th Blend, about 100g of Delighting the Senses and about 150g of Light of the Moon and that is it.

The problem is that the folks that make it do so for local customers so it was never intended to be sold outside of a very small part of Syria. Basically the would make more if they could but getting the quality of leaf, spices and molasses that they want combined with the time required to age it means that the production is extremely limited.

So does anyone actually know where in Syria to get it? I have a couple of Syrian buddies who travel back and forth. Problem is they've never heard of it. Anybody?

I was perfectly happy not knowing of this glorious shisha's existence but now that I know of it, it is sorta like the Holy Grail of shishas. Longed for but never quite attainable

Shisha = hookah

Shisha =/= tobacco


I am still highly covetous of my Al Barudi. My contentment is long gone and dearly missed. If I could actually buy tobaccos such as these on any regular basis I would buy them almost exclusively.

It's magical because it tastes amazingly rich, complicated and like nothing else. The texture is perfect and it makes you feel better then anything you'll ever smoke.

Well the fact is it's not easy to get in Syria. I have a home in Syria and go there on business several times a year. More often then not I can't get it when I go and I know people that work for the firm. When I have gotten it i've found it in Al Hamidiyah in Tartus although I think that it's packed and shipped from somewhere around Idlib. Thing is that it's made by a few families and the production is spread out so it's not like they have a factory someplace. I wrote about seeing how it's made so read that and you'll get an idea.

The stuff is made in very small batches and it sells fast. It never comes in modern packing but instead is wrapped in wax paper and once in blue moon you can get in a small wooden box. For the most part the people that buy it are long time customers and it doesn't really seem to show up in cafes much if at all.

If I can get a decent quantity of it I distribute half of it here but I don't get it very often.
