Romman gives a lot of smoke and a decent buzz, though I really find it's flavor to be very mild, but most people disagree so I might've just got a bad batch every time.

Though there's really no easy answer to that question as other have mentioned, you really have to try stuff around and buy sampler packs and such. If you really don't like something just use it as a mixer or send it to me.

NAKHLA! If you want thick clouds, a strong buzz, and nice taste, plus it's the best shisha for the buck (usually around 6 USD online for 250g). Just it's a drier shisha so it can be a littttttle different to get a good quality session with as far as heat management goes, as compared to the wetter shishas like AF.

If you're gonna get some Nakhla though, be sure to read some reviews in the review section of HP because from personal experience, some flavors are great (i.e. cherry, sweet melon, double apple) and some flavors are bleehh (i.e. caramel).

nahkla has some of the most authentic flavor imo, and will buzz you if your new to the unwashed lines.Same goes for tangiers but the buzz is x5.(Both will blow plenty smoke if smoked properly.)clouds,imo, are overrated.The biggest clouds I've ever blown came from the most flavorless dollup of goop I've ever smoked.And some of the richest flavors I've enjoyed produced minimal smoke. If yoursmoking for cloud effect than yor completely missing the point! Again, just my opinion.

id have to say Af its a decent price.. gives great smoke and taste.. and some flavors get you a decent buzz.. but IMO if you want the buzz factor most go for Tangiers.

I enjoyed the Tangiers flavor/buzz personally. Although for all the work i had to put into it, it better have been amazing.

I haven't tried the Ayam whachyamacallit yet, should be able to try it soon though. Nakhla is dirt cheap, while it's not my personal favorite smoke many like it so i'd suggest trying it, just AVOID the El Basha line like the plague.

Personally I love a few SB flavors, Fumari, Romman, and AF. Hookah Freak/HH is an alright brand, I'd try a few of their smokes but they aren't really a smoke you devote yourself to. AF has a lot of decent flavors and a few good ones, i'd suggest trying out ESK apple and Pipe.

Like many have said before, it's all about personal pref. I LOVE Romman for traditional fruit flavors and I love Tangiers flavors/buzz, however some will tell you Tangiers is the worst tobacco ever and Romman is way overpriced. You like what you like man, bottom line =).

Hey Hookah-D,

What you're looking for can be found in all brands. There is not one brand, in my opinion, that consistently provides thick smoke, rich flavor, and the ultimate buzz from all their flavors. I for instance love Nakhla Cherry more than Al Fakher Cherry, but I enjoy Al Fakher Double Apple more than Nakhla's double apple.

The fun is experimenting with different brands and flavors and finding what you like, kind of like making a music playlist, it'll have sounds from different genres.

Hope this helps you out. I'd hate for you to just give up on all but one brand.

AF is first, then nakhla, then layalina. Starbuzz is too expensive and is pretty much equal to AF in tase/smoke. worst is al waha, second worst is hookah-hookah

I like nakhla, because it is easy for me to get locally. I also love starbuzz, fumari, and fusion.

Let me the first person to say it comes down to preference.

Oh wait damnit :P.

Anyhow, for buzz and mass production, Ayam Zaman wins so far in my experiences.

Best price for buzz and taste goes to nakhla, its cheap and it works!

Creative super sweet tastes goto SB.

AF is good quality, but sadly ends up running in vintages while other products are more consistent.

Waha is cheap, does the job, but kinda poorer quality.

Tangiers is in the mail...

Layalina was good, but not the best.

Tonic was very very nice, most interesting melon i've had, its quite orgasmic in taste.

Potion is alright, some flavors are amazing once or twice but then later its like...eh...why bother.

AF and Nakhla are both awesome. I prefer Nakhla most because the flavors are more natural, not super candy-ish like starbuzz.

fantasia will give you very good flavor and very thick smoke but will give you no buzz.

I myself would pick Tangiers Lucid over Starbuzz/Fumari anyday. Cheaper then Starbuzz and more then Fumari. Sooo many great flavors too, then maybe you'll eventually get into the Noir, which has even better flavors. EDIT: Fantasia is also top of my list, although most expensive definitely worth a try or two.

I personally love Al-Waha, exsept for a few flavors, I'm also starting to be a big fan of Hookah-freak, just buy some sample packs and find what works for you.
