I'd have to agree. SB wild mint got a little strange lately, and smells almost fruity... I really like a good mix of SB winterfresh, SB spearmint, and AF mint (which is my favorite mint as well). Ice in the base with those three going on, and it's pretty br0Otal! I love it! SB spearmint with SB orange is pretty damn fantastic as well!

I've never had Mizo Mint but I can't smoke Nakhla Mint by itself.

then you definitely wouldn't be able to smoke Mizo Mint by itself, it is so so strong and quite overpowering. As Patelbadboy said, you only need about 1-2 leaves in a mix to get the mint undertones

Mizo mint it is! That's the sensation i'm looking for.

And i know right? Lifes been hectic so i havent been able to lurk much lately (about to move half way across the good ol us of a) how you been Sambooka? I was worried no one would know who i am haha.

Edit: Nahkla Mint is my personal favorite well so far at least, but some times i want to feel like i'm breathing in a very cold morning dew.

Best peppermint is Epic Candy Cane. I hate to say it, but it is.

Tangiers makes great mints, including Ubermint and a Fucking Strong mint.

Al Fakher mint tastes cheap and fake, like Junior Mints.

Nakhla mint is just ehh.

join the club, i cannot find a mint even remotely minty, af mint is kinda minty but the af undertones get to me, nakhla mint is just like menthol, mizo mint is lacking, saloum mint was lacking, tangiers lucid mint had a good flavor but was too weak.

i ended up mixing some pepermint extract in to shisha and it was alright but still not what i want. i want a mint shisha that makes altoids taste bland (cause to me now unless i chomp on an altoid its not strong for me)

Tangier's Chocolate Mint is off the charts.. super strong flavor.. very similar to girl scout thin mint cookies... my friends and I actually prefer to mix it down a little bit just because of how strong it is... its mixes great with any mint, coconut, or coffee flavored shisha... it wouldn't seem like it but it has even worked great with some fruit flavors IMO.

Nakhla Mint definitely for the mint tingle.

Tangiers Uber Mint was dissapointing with how not minty it was.

Tangiers fucking strong mint (actual flavor name)... now that's a mint.

AF Mint for the overall flavor.

You could always do what I do, take every mint you can find and mix it together. Mintocalypse!

AF mint is the best for a natural tasting mint IMO. Just like a natural mint leaf.

i use liquid breathe mints. i always carry one in my pocket and are small and quick to add to the hookah vase/bowl for a minty flavor. also ive used mint extract. you can usually buy a large bottle at liquor store or bake store. it lasts a long time and is cheap. maybe try tooth paste....

That is easy! If you like washed tobacco the best mint around is Salloum Mint and if you want a more complicated washed mint then AAfzal Pudina is the way to go. If you want something a bit heavier and complicated and unwashed then Desi Merli's Mint or Pudina are ideal.
