Default Trying to find my shisha identity

I have smoked a couple different flavors at my local hookah bar, nothing to write home about but I enjoyed the experience so I recently took the plunge and got myself my own hookah from Hookah-Shisha.com so I got the free Romman in mint and Ivory Coast but I was not too impressed by amount of flavor. I was hoping you guys could help me out on finding my identity in some brands since I have very limited experience and don't know the ends and the outs of them yet.
Thanks in advance

I second that. I too am a little bit too new to understand all the different types. All I know is that Nakhla is extremely good, and some other small things.

Best way to find what you like is to try the 50g samplers, in the end it'll be only you who knows your tastes, since everyones is different. Also check the reviews in the reviews section.

Second that, 50g boxes are a great way to try new brands. Really all you need to do is just find a local store that sells tobacco so you aren't paying high shipping costs until you know exactly what you like.

Try Nakhla. Really good flavours, for cheap prices, and they give you a nice buzz!

the box vader is holding is zaghoul, if you get it in a 50g sample chances are you will have to add some molasses to it in order to get it to smoke
you should get a bunch of 50 gram samples in a bunch of brands
each brand has its good and bad, most brands are mostly bad, but each brand also has its good stuff
ask about specific brands and im sure you can get a few suggestions in each

Nakhla - Two Apple, Mint, Lemon, Mango, Cherry, and Chocomint
Al Fakher - Mint, Pipe, Lemon with Mint, Orange, and Strawberry
Al Waha - AVOID AT ALL COSTS
StarBuzz - Some flavours are good, other's are hit and miss. Althought I do love Marlett.
And you can't go wrong with ANY Social Smoke flavour.

welcome!
try lots of stuff! don't get completely discouraged away from a brand (excluding al waha... bleh) or hookah all together based upon one flavor.

like everyone else said, check out the reviews section for opinions on new brands/flavors (but keep in mind that these are just opinions, and something that someone else hated may become your go-to flavor).

also, read some threads about proper bowl-packing and heat management techniques, and keep in mind that each brand may require a slightly different method for achieving a good smoking session.

see this thread for your first 50g sampler:
http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showt...ghlight=fusion
DiscountHookah, one of our beloved vendors is shipping out samplers of fusion at no cost to you

good luck on your glorious adventure!
