I am a big fan of Nakhla tobacco. Its typically a bit more dry than other brans such as Af and Sb. Their Mizo line is a bit more wet/juicy if thats what you are into. I like Double Apple, Lemon, Orange, Mint, Mizo Watermelon, Mizo Mint (Its super strong), and Mizo Lemon.


Starbuzz and social smoke both have some awesome flavors too!

I really liked Sb: Safari Dew Melon, Code 69, POMberry, and winter fresh (gum).

Social Smoke sponsored the contest of the month and gave away a ton of 100g samples to out Hp members. If you like energy drink try their Mobster flavor! It is spot on redbull/monster flavor.

Default Re: What Flavors to get :D

code 69 is the worst thing i ever smoked, it gets the trophy for disgusting

in starbuzz you should try blue mist if you havent had it, but its only good the first time you buy it. you think its awesome and then you buy it again and cant figure out why you liked it.
white peach, not only does my gf like it, but i can actually enjoy something she likes as well.
strawberry margarita, and xmas mix are good as well

in AF: orange and mint, and these mix together well

Tangiers: horchata, orange soda, and mimon(lemon mint)

Nahk: cardamon, cinnamon, double apple (mix all 3 25%, 25% 50%), mizo (just about any) and earl grey

if you want to try some traditional tobacco:
AF: soft black (only sold in kilos) or pipe(chocolate)
Desi Murli, id recommend roohafza, pan rasna and kewra (available at hookah1.com)
Nahkla Zaglouol, Bata, and tombac

if you wonder about a brand i have not mentioned, go ahead and ask

Thx so much guys lots of info here, Np HSK the more the merrier im gna have a fun time compiling a list of what I want from all the stuff you guys have mentioned (I want all of it ) not to mention an increase in budget might be required hehe

Not tried Starbuzz at all so Im gna give that a go, I love Redbull and pan (actually I think I will prolly love all the spicy stuff) so Ill be ordering some of that, Ill go for a bit of everything I think to give me a good sample and idea of what I like for next time

Sorry more questions guys What weights should I buy in (50g? or more) and which retailer should I use where I can get a good price? perhaps a discount as well

Thx again every one for all the help

Go to vendor section, that's where you should shop, get 50g when available, not everything comes in a 50 though

Just noticed it hasn't been mentioned, starbuzz will give you a very light buzz, AF a stronger one, and Nak gives a very nice strong buzz. If that factors into your decision keep that in mind, I liked starbuzz at first, but I like a buzz too so now I mostly do nakhla.

Djaffacake, I don't mean to be the negative one here but please do realize that ordering tabacco from America for shipment to England will cost you... I don't mean the shipping costs but more the taxes. The taxes here in Holland are outrageous.. they can even confiscate it and destroy it. If I were you I would check with Englands customs. I would hate it for you to spend more money then you like on taxes.

Nah, they won't. They'll smoke your tobacco and have a good laugh at your expense, though.

Starbuzz

Blue Mist - Its the original blue mist. So you should try it.
Kiwi - It is the best kiwi in my opinion.
Flower Power - It is my new favorite in starbuzz line.

Al-Fahker

Watermelon - Its not to candy taste.

Thx for all the comments guys, Thx elco WoW I did not realise the tax aspect of things at custom, what is the current percentage of tax on tobacco imported from us? This is rly bad news does this apply even if a friend brings it with him from abroad, and says its for personal use?

Nice spot ripjoe, honestly nothing gives me a buzz here in the UK, Ive been to quite a few hookah bars/cafes they use herbal molasses such as soex n stuff some of my freinds do get a buzz but its very weak, I dont like the taste and for me there is no buzz So ill try a bit of all 3 and see how much of a buzz I like. This will help shape my next order.

Will do Shak2ruff

your welcome. here in holland if the package is caught you have to pay 59 euro + 19 % tax. which is alot. I was lucky when I ordered mine. I don't know what the amount is in England though. If a friend brings it with him then it is a sertain amount... that varies per country so you should check your customs site again.

My boyfriend and I have only really tried AF but my favourite is mint and his is cherry, both quite strong but refreshing flavours.

The mint is also an amazing mixer, especially with grape - which is also a nice strong flavour.
