Try tobacco shops, cigar stores and Hookah Company. They offer "traditional" types, but I'm not sure if it would work right.

There are others who have tried as well, maybe they can list where they bought theirs soon.

There is a type of tobacco called "Asfahan", it comes in a brick. This stuff gets soaked in water and then smoke without the use of foil.

I've used this stuff to make shisha a couple times.... and I personally dont think its well suited.... especially if you are used to stuff like Layalina or Al-Waha....etc.

You might think Im nuts.... but the best stuff I have found to use for homemade shisha is cheap chewing tobacco.... no joke. I thake that stuff and let it soak for a while and then let it dry out to the point where its not wet, not bone dry, but still flexable. Great stuff.

I make my own shisha all the time and give away a lot to chums of mine who like it. I strongly strongly suggest going with traditional tombac as the base tobacco and use high quality pipe tobacco in small amounts. Given that cigarette tobacco is crap quality and snuff & chew have poor cuts for shisha i'd suggest you avoid them.

If you want to buy tombac get it from Hookahs Etc as he as it at good prices.

When I get the time i'll put up a big, step by step article about how to do it.
