Leaving Sisha (or as some of us call it shisha) in the fridge just causes it to require more acclimation time. Other members can chime in about thier experiences.

I keep mine at room temp in tupperware containers and that seems to work fine.

If your storing your tobacco in good sealing bags/tubs there is nothing that refrigeration is going to do for you. There are some manufacturers who at least put on their packages to NOT put it in the frig, dont believe me just check Fumari.

I had made the same mistake for long time. But then one time girlfriend was cleaning out frigde so my tobacco had been out for a few hours and forgot to be put in..
When I opened it ( it was stored in glas jar ) I noticed it smelled 10 times fore man! All flavours suddenly smelled sooo good! That's when i realised that shisha must be stored in room temp. cus thats when it tastes the best! Also if u have shisha in fridge, and then put it directly in bowl to smoke then it will not get heated as it should be.. It's really not good to have in fridge.

But I think that unopened containers is stored better is fridge ( just my guess ). So when im about to open a new tobacco, I take it out of the fridge a day before. And then can smoke it next day. but this is only necessary if u want to store shisha for a long period of time, maybe 6 months to a year ? otherwise u can have it in room temp. in a dark place..

this is not only my opinion as I have been searching the web about this quesction and the best answer Ive gotten is that the air is much drier in fridge and therefore open shisha tobacco should not be stored there!

No, I take out the tobacco from the fridge, make a bowl, put the tobacco back in the fridge, leave the bowl outside until coals light for about 10-15 minutes

I would only recommend putting the shisha in da fridge if you live in a really humid place and the shisha is gonna go bad, but otherwise keep it in a dark cupboard at room temp, and you should be fine

Also the shisha seem to burn faster when it comes out the fridge cos it has been in a cold place and suddenly witha lot of heat its gonna burn a lot quicker

what i feel is that if you put your shisha in the fridge the juices will dry up. so ya its best to store it in an air tight container at room temp.

Fridges use a compressor that is desogned to remove moisture, you definantly DO NOT want to remove moisture from your tobacco. Store your shisha in a cool dry closet in an airtight tupperware bowl for best results.

dude u shouldnt take tobac from fridge and put it in bowl .. it must be roomtemperature to smoke good.. Just smell it when its cold and fresh out of the fridge and ull see its not good to have shisha in fridge if not unopen packages and even so you must take it out of the fridge a day before u wanna smoke it!

I might do it, depending on the humidity.

Only Tangier's Tobacco, though.
