Question Homemade Shisha

So for the longest time now I've been trying to
get a hold of some Dried Tombak tobacco
to make my own shisha. I have been using
cigar tobacco and washing it so it won't turn out so nasty.
Does anyone kno where i could get some?
or any tips on making the shisha?
Thanks

As much as it pains me to give them any business, I only know of HC having Tombac.

Asfahini Tombac. Looks like a brick of crispy dried yellow tobacco leaves. Smokes great on it's own if you prep it right.

Which is an entirely different experience to what most modern hookah smokers are used to.

I just found out today from a co-worker that a friend of his is going to attempt to grow some tobacco of his own up here. I'm not sure on all of the particulars, even the type of tobacco he's going to grow, but it sure could be a source of some leaf tobacco to experiment with. I hope it will all work out for the good! Smoke happy.

won't you have to cure it and stuff?
I think I should emphasize stuff even. I though making tobacco smoke ready was a time consuming process.

It is. It's a long and fairly intricate process.

Nope

Soak the tobacco, wrap it up, and throw a coal on top.

Be careful, she kicks like a mule.

Yes, it will have to be cured. That will be part of his process. He's been studying it for some time now. Smoke happy.
