Sam, I spoke with Hajo about this a while back and he told me that unless you are in Tartus, Syria, you can pretty much hang it up bud. As for me, I haven't smoked hookah in quite a while but the last smoke I had was Shooting Star . Hajo, I cannot thank you enough my friend

I am extremely glad I was able to distribute exotica like this since I want as many as possible to find out that an alternative exists to the fruity gulf/American style stuff. It's also great to find out that I was able to brighten a few days as well!

Thanks again Hajo! Hopefully I did a good job on the vids .. and gave this brand some much deserved props! It was truly a very enjoyable smoke!

I shot the video within a week of receiving the maassel. Sorry it has taken me so long to post the vids.
The videos looked pretty good and it'll people know about some neat stuff they other wise wouldn't hear about. Of course I am glad to find out that you enjoyed it as well.

I am a bit confused by your post because SS isn't exported except to various individuals that are in tight with the people that make it. Still, if you are in an Arabic country and are hooked with someone that has a connection with SS I guess you can get some. My recollection is that in Syria SS sells for 10-20 € a kilo depending upon the blend although I understand that often people pay more. I have no idea what it sells for when individuals overseas buy it.

That is the problem I have. Ordering 40 kilos of something is sort of a hassle and very expensive when overseas shipping and customs are added in. Basically i'd be delighted if I could get lesser traditional stuff at a descent price regularly.

Where are you located?
From what I understand, which isn't much since I don't know the owners, it seems that what limits SS production is the very long time needed to cure and age the product and getting a hold of enough leaf, herbs and molasses of high enough quality.

Yeah I was truly sad when my SS ran out. I relished EVERY moment I spent with it. As you guys may recall, I have shunned many of the candy american flavored stuff and have been smoking Salloum and DM almost exclusively. I love the more traditional stuff but wish there were more options than salloum and DM. Thanks for the SS samples Hajo, very much appreciated.

I really wish that someday Shooting Star will be available in the U.S. Hajo, if you can include me on your next mailing, that would be great. The sample of Shooting Star and Contentment that I received were absolutely amazing.

The SS i've seen comes in two forms: small amounts wrapped in wax paper and tied with string and piece of paper with the number of the blend glued on the outside. Far rarer are the boxed additions which are seen here:
http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showt...ghlight=Barudi

Basically, the small, traditional moassels come in wax paper 9 times out of ten.

Apparently SS it also comes in a small glass jar but that extremely rare and I have yet to see it.

I forgot about that thread with the box of it, but I remember thinking how tasty it looked.
