no. Shisha expires in 2 years, but even that is a myth. Unless you're like jilly, who managed to get her shisha to mold, the shisha should be good for 1+ years.

Well, that was mold from water being in there. And it was on the tin, not the shisha.

Also, Sb puts preservatives into their mix.

It also depends on how you store your shisha and it will even go past the "2 year" mark. But, I have had shisha (Af Strawberry Prod April 2006) that I bought last March that was absolutely flavorless and I have tried that flavor b4 that.

Unopened shisha can last up to a few years being in the right temperature and humidity.
