Default Buying shisha from the US, Duty?

Hi, i'm a newbie to this site but have been smoking shisha for a very long time, mainly Al Fakher, I went to a cafe in central London and they were selling starbuzz and liked the blue mist. So know I've been on a hunt on-line but the only vendors that sell this brand are in the US. So my next question is what have been the experiences of the members here from the UK when ordering tobacco from the US, over at http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...h-ordering.asp, they state they mark the package as a gift, which in most cases avoids duty, so just asking what have the users here experience been and any sites you can recommended? Any info would be very much appreciated.

I did not know marking it as a gift could affect customs, hm. That's interesting. I haven't really had any experience, but if you called them I bet they could help you out with shipping info. And welcome to the forum!

I've bought things from China before and only the items marked as gift were not charged duty, but it wasn't tobacco!

many vendors are in these forums regularly...asking them what they do is probably your best bet....
