Default Havana Hibiscus?

A few years ago I bought a 50g box of Havana shisha from someone who said that the flavour was Hibiscus. Not sure if it tasted like Hibiscus, but it did taste very good, and I'd like to get some again. But looking online, I can't find any proof that a Hibiscus flavour even exists. I remember that the box itself didn't mention a flavour.

I'm pretty sure (though not 100%) that the box I had was the gray box in the left of this picture:


Is that the Pipe flavour? Even if is isn't really Hibiscus, I'd still like to get it again.

Also, can anyone tell me where I can find Havana Carrot flavour? I can't seem to find that online either.

Thanks!

Pipe Flavors Tend to be chocolate. Good luck finding what youre looking for.

I don't remember how it tasted. This was a few years ago. It may have been chocolately. I just remember it was good.

That flavor would be rowan if I'm not mistaken. Only about the best flavour that havana makes. For some reason they decided to make the box not look like any of their other packages and not put the flavour on there, makes it a pain in the ass to figure out what it is.

There is a flavor called "jamaica"(pronounces HA-My-Ka in spanish) and I believe it is the flavour you are looking for but I'm not sure Havana makes it. I forgot what other brand has it, it escaped my mind at the moment.

That is indeed a box of Rowan. It's more of a classic style tobacco than the usual blends from Havana. It's tasty and something I have enjoyed quite a bit.

HAha, maybe if you had a Mexican ma'assel factory.

The Arabs call hibiscus tea Karkady. And it's a flavor I'd love to see if it were done right, possibly by Nakhla or Desi Murli.

I'm pretty sure that was the box. So if that's the box for Rowan, then I guess Rowan is what I got. Thank you so much for helping me identify it. I look forward to trying it again. I don't know why they told me Hibiscus, although I think Hibiscus would be a really good shisha flavour, and I would be the first in line to get some of it.

So, Havana Carrot, where can I find some of that?

Decent recipe, I like to make mine with lime juice for a bit of extra zing.

Also tequila.

Havana's Rowan flavor is really damn good. To me it tastes like black currants.

When does tequila not make it into anything you make? Or mead for that matter?

Oh, and they make a great Pipe flavor. Their Pipe flavor smells like molasses and tastes like a toned down version of Nakhla's Zaghloul lite. Definitely worth trying if you come across it.

Thanks, I'll check it out! Was thinking of picking up some Zaghloul Lite, but maybe I'll try the Havana Pipe instead.

If you like havana then the best place to get it is here :
http://www.southsmoke.com/pd_havana.cfm

Southsmoke sells is for $9.99 - 250g ( the best price on the web) and you can use the forum discount code for another 10-15% OFF. They sell the newest version in the tin.

Thanks for the link and the heads up about the discount!

I see they have "Apple Al-Rawan" listed, is that the flavour you guys have been talking about?

They still don't have carrot.
