I wouldn't worry about a fridge or freezer, just by some Jars at a grocery store. I got a four pack of them for 6 bucks. It keeps them air tight, and fresh for so long.

Freezer can actually really hurt your tobacco. You are extracting moisture from the tobacco and with it the volatile flavor components because of the compressor that actually cools the freezer. Just keep it at room temperature.

I purchased some small storage dishes from my local wallyworld they work great and were under $3.00 for a set of 8 of them. The lids snap on nice and tight and keep the shisha sealed when not in use. Then, you can always clean them (rinse them well) and reuse them for the same or different flavors of shisha again and again. Smoke happy.

I would agree, freezer + shisha sounds scarry... BUT.... If I was you, I would take 50g of shisha, place in the freezer and then smoke it after a week or so...

at room temp shisha will last for a good year or more. So if you wont smoke your shisha for two- three years maybe buy smaller packs or something


it will be fine in Tupperware

if the tobacco is good quality it should be fine in the original container. i like to keep mine in the original bags just because it keeps the juices on the tobacco. but a lot of people like plastic bagies or rubermaide containers, dont put it in the fridge or freezer.

yeah, those are the ones I was talking about above. LOL They work really well at sealing the shisha and keeping it from drying out. Smoke happy.

just so you know, "shisha" is a term used for the hookah itself, what you are referring to is shisha tobacco, which comes in many forms such as mo'essel. I have yet to figure out how to properly use all the different tobacco terms, so i just call it simply tobacco.
I know even vendors call it shisha, but its a shortened version of shisha tobacco, and its a term only used in the united states. so you should keep it simple with tobacco as to not confuse the rest of the planet

i keep my tobacco in the fridge in my basement because i don't have room for it elsewhere i don't think that is helps preserve anything but then again i don't have one flavor or type for very long.

I used to store mine in a refrigerator in hopes that it would do, anything..

But I noticed no difference in it compared to room temp. So I switched back to just regular room temp storage.
