Default Where Do You Store Your Shisha / Tobacco?

Hey Guys, here is an interesting questions. Who ever you ask, they have a different myth or idea. Everyone truly believes what they say or think. Some say Fridge, Some say Room Temperature, and others say in bags sealed in a drawer. Please tell me what you do or think is better......

1- Fridge
2- Room Temperature (Garage or Counter)
3- A bit Warmer than Room Temperature in a drawer...

Its truly interesting. I keep mine at room temperature. I have tested all and found that room temperature works best and lasts longest for me....

room temperature because it would have the least shock on the tobacco, if its warmer than normal it has the chance to go bad and in the fridge the coldness would destroy the tobacco and dry it out if not properly sealed

I learned from experience - Fridge = BAD for tobacco. Typically I store mine in ziplock containers & bags in a "nightstand" in the living room, so I would be room temp.

BUT I will state last night I had to move all of mine to a cooler area of the house. It never occured to me, that while moving furiture, placing the Hookah Stand UNDERNEATH the 4' long raditor on the ceiling was a BAD thing. I felt the containers on the top and they were WARM, so I moved everything for safety. Heat will kill good mos'sel in a heartbeat.

Well, I keep mine in my handy dandy hookah cabinet / furniture! You can see pics of it here ... http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/index...33.msg77#msg77

As for storing, I like to use a ziploc container, or plastic ziploc bag inside the original tub. I store it in drawers in my hookah storage furniture at room temperature. Luckily I live in Florida and my humidity is relatively the same throughout the year, although it may change around winter time some.

Zip lock containers in a dark dry closet. I have a bunch of those ones that have a blue snap on top.

I keep my tobacco horde in a giant blue trunk in the corner of my living room.

I keep mine stored in the original Starbuzz tubs inside of a zip lock bag. I usually have three different tubs in each bag. And I store it in my room, so I would also fall under the room temperature category...

I smoke in the garage, so I keep them in the garage. What sucks about that is...I have a detached garage, so no heat. So when its 40 outside, the tobacco is just about that temp too. Getting the smoke started on a 40 Degree bowl sucks! lol

Ooo, try lighting QL coals at that temperature... actually at 20 degrees. It's quite literally impossible. :

Ooo, but my mom bought me this Japanese Cabinet with some AWESOME Japanese painting on it, and it stores my hookahs in a cabinet AND my tobacco in a Drawer... pretty sweet.

I keep my shisha, coals... foil, poker.... Tongs in a metal lock box and store it in the cupbord of my hookah table. Everything seems to stay pretty fresh and it is safe from shisha stealing friends.

I use a plastic tub and then use saran wrap over the top and then just seal it . I believe it keeps my shisha in perfect smoking condition! keeps the moist and everything safe.

From what I've read here, putting it in the frige will completely dry it out and remove all moisture. That in turn will obviously ruin the whole tub. I've never tried doing it, simply because to me it just doesn't make any sense. It's not food you know... The zip-lock bag at room temp. sounds like more sense...
