Default price of hookah tobacco to high in melbourne australia

i remember the days when i used to buy 50g AF and nakhla tobacco for $3. now after all of this bullshit tax the govt has put on it im paying $15 for 50g. im not that good with imports and buying online, but the only "tobacco" i can find to buy online seems to be that soex herbal bullshit. does anyone know where i can buy AF tobacco online in australia for a reasonable price?

oh man if only. sadly because of the tobacco tax, australia counts shisha as 100% tobacco and taxes accordingly. I'm in the same boat, living in sydney, and your best bet would be to try and find a website with minimal shipping here, yet from america UPS (i think) it's around 30 bucks which is a killer. dunno man but i'll be watching this thread and i'll give you a heads up if i find something.

c'mon. herbal? yuck man!

I've always found herbal hookah disgusting in comparison to authentic shisha tobacco. Plus I like a nice buzz when smoking. I'd rather not smoke grass :/

The taxes on shisha in Australia are about the same as here in Canada ($15-$20 for 50g) shipping is also pretty high. Even with shipping added its still cheaper buying in the U.S, better selection to.

Steam stones? non tobacco so no tobacco tax on them maybe?

That's cheap. 50g packs of tobacco start at $27 in Alberta. I think they must be protecting the cigarette companies by taxing lose tobacco at $.30 a gram. It's cheaper to order from the states even when you get caught and pay taxes because no one sells anything bigger than the 50g packs.

be prepared to pay $350/kg tax.
if you order 250gr, then you will pay $87.50 just for tax, on top of whatever you paid for tobacco and shipping

strangely i replied to this yesterday and it didnt go through.
i saw this site a while ago, and they ship directly from dubai. i emailed them yesterday and it turns out that they'll fix the checking system in around 3 weeks. Their postage is also actually pretty high ($27) and they only allow you to purchase 250gm at a time.

AF Herbal is actually pretty tasty and accurate flavors compared to the regular line. It's definitely worth checking out.

Sorry to see that you have to pay so much for your tobaccos. Basically what you are paying for is about what you would be paying for if you had to pay an import tax. Again sorry for your high prices to pay.
