Default Shisha in the fridge?

I have a friend that tells me the best way to keep shisha fresh is to put it in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge. I was wondering if anyone else has heard this before or if they have tried it? Thanks!

I keep mine in my beer fridge in a zip lock bag. It keeps it nice and fresh.

No containers you are going to use are actually air tight and the fridge uses a compressor to cool the air that also draws out moisture. Hookah tobacco relies on very volatile essences and flavors to actually taste like anything and those could be lost if the tobacco is kept in an environment like that.

Modern hookah tobacco has lots f preservative in it that make sure it does not grow anything unpleasant or go bad. Very old style tobaccos with nothing like that can sometimes get nasty if sealed improperly but I have hookah tobacco that is three years old and is still perfectly fine.

I've had no problems storing mine in the pantry.
I keep room in the fridge for important stuff like beer.

The only tobacco I keep in the fridge is Desi Murli and only because it was recommended by some people here that I trust. I have plenty of other tobaccos either in plastic containers or ziploc bags stored in a kitchen cabinet and haven't had anything go bad.

Right now I just keep mine in a basket that makes it very portable. I'm looking at getting a cabinet of some sort, though, to put it in as my collection is growing faster than I can smoke it. But I don't refridgerate any of it. I keep it either double bagged with the air squished out or in snap top gladware containers (cheap). Smoke happy.

Only Desi Merli goes into the fridge for it has no preservatives. Rest at room temp in a cool dark place
