The best way would probably buy one of those food savers that suck all oxygen out of the little baggy you have. You can get those at walmart, but they might not be practical.... Other than that just something that is airtight and convenient.

well you can get one of those food savers but get the jars. use the food saver in conjunction with the jar and it will suck out all the air every time keeping it fresher longer.

Yeah that will work too.... either way.... I forgot they even made the jars for them. Ours is the first generation one so it didn't have jars when we got it... I like the way you can custom make the size of your baggies with it. It's a good machine.

Airtight containers is the best way in a cool dry cabinet. Smoke often!

Yep like Billy touched on the more you smoke the less chance you have of any going bad. I keep mine in half pint mason jars at room tempature. Some is over 7 months old since I got it and it's still very fresh tasting and smelling.

I use ziplock bags and ziplock plastic containers. Both work great! and work even better when you combine the two together

if you have a thrift store near you, look for the sealing flip-top jars. They work great! And much cheaper than the new ones in stores.

Dunkel - are you talking about screw-down type mason jars? I'm seriosuly considering replacing my ziplock tubs w/ jars.

I also keep mine at room temperature in ziploc bags and plastic containers. I have had some of my shisha tobacco for over two years. (I buy new flavors and forget about the old.) Every once in a while I smoke the old ones and they seem a little dry. So I just add some glycerin to it. Makes it smoke and taste like new.
