Default Should I Refrigerate my Shisha? :\

I read on SouthernSmoke to put my shisha in an air tight container and TO NOT put my shisha in the fridge because it'll ruin the flavor.

But, i just read on TheHookah that you SHOULD refrigerate shisha to keep it lasting longer.

wtf?

DONT REFRIGERATE. Refrigerators suck moisture out of foods and will do so with your tobacco as well. The premise behind smoking hookah is steaming the tobacco leaves, if your shisha is dry its incredibly difficult to have an enjoyable session. Keep your tobacco in a cool dry place, like a closet.

I used to refrigerate my stuff in airtight containers and never had any trouble whatsoever. Many of the local vendors also keep there moassel in the cooler. Again, no issues.It very much depends how it's stored. If moisture can't get in than it can't get out.

no way, it adds humidity to the shisha and messes up the taste. Its the complete opposite of acclimitizing your shisha. (yo do that to you new shisha no?)

Nah I'd say don't do it. I mean, I know a good number of people do and claim that they had no problems, but I think it also depends on what temp the fridge is and how long you plan to keep it in there.

I'd say just leave it at room temperature in a airtight container. Then, everything will be kept fresh

I bought a small closet for like 30 bucks, assembled it, and it has become my official hookah closet. its short and also makes a good smaller hookah stand. its dark and little airflow, its the way to go.

I've never refrigerated any of my shisha tobacco, and I've never had any go bad or taste off from storage.

I keep mine under a coffee table. I put the stuff that comes in boxes in zip-lock bags and the stuff that comes in jars I just leave in the jar.

theres no need to store shisha in the fridge, just leave it in an air tight bag/container and you'll be fine

not much reason just takes up space in your fridge and it's not like food, it takes forever for it to spoil...but...if it get's moldy that's another issue...but imo it'd probably be easier for it to spoil in a fridge, mostly because how humid they are
