Default Shisha advice

I am, how shall I say, often limited in funds. and so dont have the option to splurge on any and every flavor to try, I was wondering what people think are the absolute essential brand/flavors that every hookah smoker should have in their collection.

For me, AF Bubble gum. That or the Starbuzz Orange shisha. Both really, really good in my humble opinion.

Nakhla Sweet Melon is as cheap priced as it gets and is a great smoke. There are quite a few other great Nakhla flavors as well.

Agree completely with Dunkel, your trying to keep on a budget and Nakhla is much better priced than most out there. Nakhla sweet melon, mandarin orange, apricot, double apple, Fak fruits, Mint, and others. For a buck or two more you can get the Sherazade Earl Grey or Margarita. Very good flavors for the price. Mizo line is also very good but a few dollars more than the regular line.

If you're trying to keep a budget, AVOID SB by all costs =). I'd go for a few select Nakhla flavors, they're cheap and smoke great.

Or, if you have limited funds and want to buy 1 time in bulk then not worry for about 2 months, go over to *************.com and buy the AF buy 20 get 25 free pack. Then you get more AF flavors than you know what to do with, and you'll be set for a while =)

Al Amir exotic is a great, reasonably priced line as is Mizo. However, the best bang for the buck is without a doubt Salloum and Desi Merli. Desi Merli plain mixed with Sherazade Earl Grey is amazing. Afzal Paan, coffee, Silver Fox and Vanilla are all great and cheap. Salloum Bahreny is worth it's weight in gold and a 7 bucks for 250g is something you simply can't afford to not have.

as far as quality and availiability, al nakhla. in all it's forms(fahkfahina,sheherazade,mizo,and el besha) is easily the best buy.Hajo makes some great suggestions as well, but as a new smoker, desi murli may be a bit hard to swallow,so to speak.

Hajo suggested some good things above, but I have not tried Desi Murli or Salloum personally. I wish to try it but I have quite a bit of tobacco at the moment so it will be a while before I stock up again. Anyways, I suggest Nakhla Sweet Melon, or if you can afford to have it for a few more dollars you can get Al Fakher Golden Grape. That stuff is amazing, as well as Golden Eskandarani Apple by Al Fakher

It's weird, I've heard of so many liking AF but I can't get into it. For the price it's great shisha, but I don't like the cut that much and it seems to irritate my throat for some reason. I usually stick to SB, unfortunately it is pricey .

Nakhla, hands down if your on a budget. Al Fakher can be very nice, but inconsistent!
