Default Storing Starbuzz?

I hate having my shisha in a bag...and starbuzz comes with this handy little tin. Would it be possible to just scrape the shisha out and put it back in it's respective container? Some of the juice already ran out of the bag it came in and into the tin anyways. I'm sure someone out there has tried this and has an answer.

I know some people do that, but the tin isn't airtight, so it could dry out eventually. People put it in a ziplock and then back into the tin. But it's your tobacco...do what you like.

what if I took some saran wrap, wrapped it over the top, then put the lid back on to make it airtight?

I wouldnt put it directly in the tin because the moisture of the shisha will react wiht the tin and the tin can rust, ruining your shisha. Put it in a ziplock bag and back in the tin. That's what I do!

Rust will only be a worry in prolonged storage that way. I don't do it because A. I don't buy enough starbuzz to care and B. not airtight

I still, personally, wouldn't chance the rust just to take it out of a bag.

The thing is, the bag gets all of the juices on the outside and make it a complete pain in the ass to take out and pack a bowl. Besides, when I put it in a bag, it wouldn't go in the tin the right way.

Depends on how long will that tin last for you. It's gonna be fine if it's for just a few weeks.

Yeah, it's a 250g tin. It should last us a few weeks at most.

Starbuzz is to expensive for me to even take a chance.

This is exactly what I was just about to recommend as this is what I used to do.
Now I just store my SB in twist lock ziplock containers.
I hate leaving my shisha in bags too

The only shisha in a tin that made my tin start to rust is Romman Ivory Coast, all my other tin shisha's seemed fine. All in plastic containers now though

I put my SB in the tin then put electric tape around the lid to keep it airtight.. Honestly tho its easier to just put in a zip lock bag and then put the bad in the tin.

It could more than likely react with the tin and even if you couldn't see the corrosion it could affect with the tobacco

Since Starbuzz tends to loose its flavor rather quickly, I would try to seal it very air-tight. The only cans you can actually use so far are the Fantasia plastic cans...

Go to your local grocery store or self serve soup place, grab a bunch of the 1lb containers they are free airtight and work like a charm, dont waste you money on ziploc or chance it with the tin. 1 trip to stop and shop and you are golden

Yessir! Unfortunately I don't get to play anymore, I've had this sn for a lonnnnngg time.



And yeah, I'm going to pick up some kind of tupperware containers on my way home from class today. I just don't like bags, is all. But I find the tin to be very attractive so I kind of don't want to get rid of it.

I just got an email telling me that my new KM is sitting on my front porch. It's so tempting to just skip History to go see my new baby!

Zip lock bags are your friend.
