Default Turkish Moassel

I've got a friend visiting Turkey at the moment, and I'm considering asking if she can get her hands on some Turkish moassel to bring back.

Does anyone know what brands or types are recommended from the region? I'm partial to the traditional stuff...

If you go hunting for tombac ask for locally made stuff rather then Jordanian or Indian stuff and also try and get blended or black (often dark brown) rather then then tan coloured stuff. In terms of traditional stuff in terms of maossel I think you'll have a hard time in that the traditional brands tend to be small and locally distributed. I had a great spiced black style moassel near Van and you can read about it here: http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showt...t=lake+monster

Other good local brands I know are: Bachi-Bagli Halva from the Turkish province of Drama and is a wonderful tobamel that uses the world famous cake spun and toasted Kabakulac leaf. Samsun Maden-Canek Halva tobamel which is from from Turkey’s Black Sea coast.

If you tell me where in Turkey are going to be I may be able to suggest a brand to look for.

I suppose that the best bet for Istanbul is to go to as many tobacco shops as possible and ask for locally made tombac and unflavoured/black style moassel. The big national brands (Sultan Sima & Sherbtli) are everywhere but they are more like a less processed version of mod style moassels then they are traditional. I haven't had a chance to spend much time in Istanbul that I wasn't crazy busy so I don't know if there are any local brands there worth getting.
