There was a thread posted recently, the OP got a letter from customs stating they had his package. Stuff like that puts me off from ordering from the US. Seems like luck of the draw from us UK people.

Is there anything the vendors can do to help the package get through customs? Marking the package as a gift?

Dont bother, UK is too strict. Many shisha places down here have struggled to get their flavours. Its difficult. And with the bloody VOLCANIC ASH incident!!

I might be getting some flavour (large amount) from the us. I spoke to a mate and he knows the risk of getting it to the uk but he knows a way out and should be sending alot over.

What flavours and brands should i order?

There are only no taxes over tobacco if it is shipped from a country in EU zone to another country in EU zone, like from Portugal to UK.
