Default Nakhla or Shisha?

I'm a semi beginner Hookah smoker and have been trying to find a brand that I like that produces lots of flavor with a good amount of thick smoke also.

I normally smoke AF and sometimes SB (rarely). I'm seeing tons of talk about Nakhla and how many people like it better than most others. What is the difference between nakhla and shisha. I have been wanting to try it out myself but have been on a budget.

I'm just curious why do a lot of people like Nakhla over shisha. And what would be a good website that any of you use to order it?

What Bee says is true, Nakhla is a shisha brand like AF, Starbuzz.

Nakhla has more nicotine (0,5%) than other brands like AF, Starbuzz (0,05%)

nakhla is for me the best brand of tobacco

I like the MIZO brand of nakhla, the grape one, but evrybody didn't like it

double apple, mint and mizo grape are a "must try" for evry shisha smokers, but you have to try each flavor to find your "one"

Shisha = Pipe/Hookah
Moassel = tobacco

Careful how you use the terms or it can get confusing. In America fo some reason everyone calls tobacco "shisha," where a "shisha" over seas is considered your hookah/pipe.

If you're planning on buying Nakhla, Mizo Mint as stated before is a win, as well as good old Sweet Melon. Great for the price and offers wonderful flavor.

Nakhla is definately worth trying if you haven't already. Their flavors are not as "candy" as most of the other tobaccos that you mentioned. It's a different kind of tobacco mix than what you are used to if those mentioned, AF and SB are the only ones you've tried so far. Give it try. Order a 50g of a flavor that sounds good to you and let us know in a review what you think. Smoke happy.

I don't speak about shisha in English at home, just here on hookahpro, so don't know what terms are exactly right.
Afaik if you speak about 'hookah' you speak about the pipe itself, and if you speak about shisha, you speak about the tobacco (hookah shisha)

Referring to tobacco as "Shisha" is popular in the states, but linguistically inconsistent with other parts of the world. This can lead to all kinds of fun confusion.

In most of the Arab world, the word Shisha (Meaning glass) refers to the pipe.

At some point along the line, Shisha tobacco (Tobacco for a shisha pipe) got shortened to just "shisha" and the name has stuck in the west.

The word "hookah" (Huqqa) is from India, and is the indian word for the pipe, that fell into common English usage during the British Raj. It is not the word they use in the mideast, where Shisha or Nargile refer to the pipe.

Isn't linguistics fun?

I would also recommend trying out SocialSmoke. I just got into their brand not too long ago. I bought a 100g tin of Blush (rosey type flavor) and I just went back to get a 100g of the Tiger's Blood. I have also smoked their Cinnamint flavor at a buddy's house. I have to say that they made a really high grade shisha that is extremely flavorful. They also have a wide variety of interesting flavors, that produce the smoke quality almost as good as SB or AF in my opinion.

Nakhla is a Moassel or a waterpipe Tobacco. Sisha is the Pipe you smoke it from also known as a hookah nargile Argileh Gayloon or waterpipe.

Nakhla is Unwashed tobacco so watch out if you are not used to it it is quite strong. The washed line of Nakhla is called El Basha. Then there is the El Nakhla line as well which is unwashed. The Tobacco is more consistent in their cut and Flavor you rarely get a bad batch like BBQ flavored Grape from AF.
