I edited my post w/some brand names of quality arabic coffee. check your local middle eastern market. They should carry some.Keep in mind, arabic coffee is like the Tangiers of coffee. It has to be prepared properly!

i really want to try it someday, but its difficult to order it
(a friend of mine ordered 2.4 kg tangiers a week ago, on friday he had to go to the customs to get his package - 100€ for the tobacco, 140€ for the customs + taxes ... so the tobacco is 10€ / 100g (about $16 for 100g). thats really expensive ..)
@ DMC, do you know a british onlineshop, who is shipping to germany and sells the new af flavours?

I asked a local store owner to see if he can get some for me, so I am calling him on Monday to find out what he did. I love ginger as a flavour and since Cardamom is part of the ginger family I SHOULD really enjoy this shisha. Also I think ill try putting a bit of ginger ale, ginger beer, or just ginger root in the base (someone who already smokes it should try one of those and tell us how it works out). I am actually really excited now, thanks Mahir for telling me to try it. It sounds so good if I like it, which I think I really will...I will thank you again.

hey guys, heres my 2cents, i haven't tried it becaue i dont ven know what cardamom is and dam AF with their perfect packaging you can't even get a wiff from the package. now, mahir and abu roni probably have the same or simpar background as me and i felt foolish when someone told me what cardamom really is. in arabic they call it hail which some put in their arabic cofee. let me stress i love arabic cofee, and let me stress more, i hate when they add cardamom to it. now that i know what it is, i am curious to know what it actually is like in a smoke. i will have to try it soon. i thought i would hate jasmine but this is the 2nd night i am smoking it. i'll give a review soon, and hoping that it will be good as you guys say.

I was drinking moroccan polmagranite tea the other night while smoking the cardamom. It was very nice indeed.

Yes indeed! That same guy also sent Grenadine. He helped me try 2 of the 3 AF flavors (vanilla is the third) I really have been wanting to try.

8.5/10 I just finished smoking Cardamom after dinner. It was really good. I didn't know what to expect seeing cardamom isn't a spice we use in cooking, and I've never had arabic coffee.

Nice review Dunkel, I'm so anxious to find out whether or not I can get it from a store here. If I can't I'll just do it online.

Yeah, the guy said he would call and figure out if he could order some for me. So he told me to call on Monday to find out what happened. So if he can't get it I will just get it online. Thanks for the Info BTW.

I love the Indian Tea from Bombay House ("Special" Indian Tea), but not enough to smoke it...

I haven't tried the AF but love the Nakhla Cardamom. And yes, as abu states, it is very strong. What you smell in the box when you open the bag is exactly what your getting in the smoke. It's a very strong and unique aroma/taste. Also the Nakhla has a cooling on the inhale similar to mint. Not sure if the AF has that effect. I bowl this up along with a cardamom/cinnamon tea mix I drink. Now one of my regular stocked tobaccos.
