It should last a long time if sealed.
I remember reading a while back that once you open it, it should last for about 6 months before "going old". But you revive it with a bit of honey if I'm not mistaken.
If you keep it sealed well though it should last you a long time.

Most shisha has a shelf life of about 2 years

yes, but if sealed and stored properly it lasts longer. Mine doesnt stay around for long...but i keep it all in a ziplock container and in the fridge... :-) dont forget to label it... or you will have to trust your nose as to what flavor haha

I keep mine stored in containers and kept ina fridge, or at least a cool dark place. Had one instance of my tobacco going bad, so I take all the precautions now.

I have lots of tobacco from a couple years ago and the only issue I have ever encountered is loss of flavor over long periods of time. That is very rare and usually with poorly made tobacco.

I once got held up at gun point by some shisha, at some point it must have gone bad and turned to a life of crime

as long as its stored properly it can last a long time, and if its dried out just add some light molasses because the molasses will hold up better to heat than most store bought honeys will.

I'm not sure but a long time ago I heard that refrigerating shisha tabacco is not a good idea. Apparently the glycerin can freeze and when it un-thaws it can loose flavour when it comes time to smoke it since the shisha can really dry out. Keeping it in a dark cool place would be a better option. From what I've heard anyways...

There's usually an expiration date on the shisha. Mine never even lasts close to that long but if you are going for storage try for something air-tight. It technically won't go "bad" it will just try out and possibly get stale after long enough. Happy smoking!

I've never heard of shisha going bad but mine doesn't last long enough to find out.
