erik is very good to his customers, i even tried to call one evening but he didnt pick up, i got a call the next day from him asking if some one called from my number, didnt leave a message he just called back solely because i had just called. great response from a manufacture.

i probably spent 30-45 mins on the phone with him on 2-3 calls trying to figure out what was up with my tangiers (i had gotten some and the acclimation failed due to weird humidity and probably airing it out too long)

personally i dont really smoke tangiers much any more, mostly just due to the fact for some reason it gave a weird feeling in my lungs after i smoked and to the next day, the nicotine doesnt really bother me but i guess the "tickle" goes to my lungs so what ever.

i semi agree with you Zen and Some of SamB. i mean i like it and all when i can get a good smoke out of it i only have Tangiers Watermelon.. and i have smoked it a few time but only got like many 2 really good smokes out of it.. i mean if you can pack and manage it properly and have no problems then go right ahead and enjoy it, but for ppl that have trouble with it like me, i kinda gave up on it a while ago

I still need to try Tangiers..I just need to check it out, see for myself because it's always made me curious. If it doesn't work out, even after a few tries, I'll probably make a trade or something.

I personally was not much of a Tangiers fan. I've tried a few different flavors, and neither of which were "omfg" good. I had a very intense throat tickle with the first flavor, and a not-so-intense, but still prevalent throat tickle with the second flavor.

I'm interested in trying their Watermelon flavor, but if I get some and it's not perfect then I don't think I'll be purchasing Tangiers any longer.

with all due respect .. I know about EVERY trick in the book to getting this right .. I've read them a 100 times here, and a million times at another site.

I've even smoked with a "self claimed" Expert! (someone that was a Tangiers worshiper) and I felt like asking him if his taste buds were intact?!? But I didn't want to be rude in his house .. I could sense a little flavor .. but nothing compared to what I get with Nakhla, Al Fakher, Starbuzz, Fusion, Hookah Freak, etc ..

Ya know, I could go on and on .. I am done .. this is exactly the problem, if someone says they don't like it, everybody tells them it is THEM!

It is frustrating .. maybe it has changed? But in my past experiences with it .. it was not my cup of tea. I am entitled to my opinion.
Sam i agree with you a hundred and ten percent take any nakhla or starbuzz and it will be just as flavorfull as tangiers. i have smoked regular tangiers and i have hated it yes its flavorfull but nothing worth that headache or buzz it gives you which i am not a fan of. your suppose to smoke to relax not get a headache also it is not very consistent it is like the new AF. i tried their tangier lucid line of kashmiere cherry and that is very good i highly recommend it. horchata i got a bad batch and it wasnt that good. i totally think it is way over rated

It's all about taste buds, everyone's a little differen't, and need different kinds of stimulation (flavor) to keep them interested.

Weather it's Tangeirs, Al fahker, or HookahHookah, everyone knows what they like, and that is all that matters.
Stick with what you love and make it for YOU!

Listen if everyone's tastebuds were the same all shisha would be the same but we are all different and so are our preferences. Go smoke what you love but I make it a point to try something new every once in a while. If someone wants to try tangy then let them the stuff is a pain in the ass but well worth the effort in my opinion, I implore everyone to try it atleast once and it is a shame that there are 8000 "halp I can't figure out tangiers" threads and not enough people searching for the answers that have been beaten into any and all of the forums. If you are not a fan of tangiers then feel free to go smoke what you do like, but don't bash a product just because it is not your " cup o tea".

I'm sorry you feel this way. I do not usually respond to threads like these but I feel that I must since I have a direct hand in operations. I am extremely proud to be manufacturing an American made product. The up most quality control goes into making Tangiers Tobacco and each step of the manufacturing process is done by hand with care. Yes, corners could be cut, we could paste a snazzy label on a tin and we could mark up the price to appear premium but that's not what we're about. I respect your opinion on the matter and appreciate the free advertising (even if it is in the form of out right ludicrous bashing).

I will however leave you with this;

Smell / Flavor: Smelled very strong of peaches with a little tea scent. Tasted like it smelled.

Rating (1 to 10): 9 This is some really good shisha tobacco. The only problem I had was it gave me a throat tickle for the first 10-15 minutes. I don't know if I got used to it or it went away, but that was the only deduction. The flavor lasted the whole hour and could have went longer with another coal. I packed it fluffy like any other shisha tobacco, and it worked great. No stems and no dye is also a plus. I recommend it.

Rating (1 to 10): 10 This shisha tobacco is exceptional. Great chocolate/cocoa flavor the whole session, never faded. Thick smoke. A thoroughly enjoyable smoke. I recommend it.



Lastly, thank you to everyone for the kind words. I will be sure to pass them on. If anyone has problems or suggestions (that aren't just crazy flavors you people come up with ) please PM me. I will do the best I can to help out.

Yes mdl out of the 6 Lucid flavors I recommended 2. As I said in my first post I am a straight shooter. I give credit where credit is due. 2 out of 6 is not a ringing endorsement. Nice of you to cherry pick what you needed for your promotional campaign. I notice you didn't add any of my Noir reviews, I wonder why? Oh I know, because I reviewed 5 flavors and the best 2 got 3/10 ratings. I recommended none of them. When I made my comments they were based on Noir.

I THOUGHT we were talking about Noir line here??

See this is the problem with this thread is .. you can NOT freely say you don't like this product, or you will have people coming out of the woodwork, that don't normally post except to defend this product if someone says they don't like it ..

And you can NOT come on here and praise the hell out of it (advertise for it), and expect those that feel strongly like this is an overrated product to not speak up and say how they feel. Personally my experiences have been negative with the Noir line. I don't like BBQ flavor .. and I'll be damned if I am going to sit back and NOT express my opinion on it! When I was new, I tried this and it was a LET DOWN! It is just my opinion ..

Maybe it is better? Secretly I am going to order another flavor .. and see how it goes, I will give it ONE more chance one of these days .. when I am feeling adventurous!

Cheers!

I'm glad we don't have a posse of people coming on here every time someone says that they don't like Starbuzz, Nakhla, Al Fakher, Hookah Hookah, etc ..

LOL Never have I seen such a "following" for one particular manufacturer? With so much "heated" debate!? LOL, sorry it is just comical to me .. next are people going to start doing that out of spite? to try and prove a point? lol .. *shakes head in disbelief this is always a love/hate discussion* I am about at my ropes end with this topic, now and in the future ..

i know how you feel. every once in a while i order a new flavor to see if its gotten any better because of all the hype created by fanboys on this and other forums, and i`m dissapointed each and every time. and i know what i`m doing, i`ve been smoking hookah for almost seven years now and have tried alot of differen brands, so its not a lack of experience. there is only one brand that i keep coming back too after all these years and thats the brand i started with, trusty old nakhla.

I have to say Tangiers is the worst brand I smoked, and believe me I have smoked a lot of brands in the last ten years or so. Tangiers watermelon had no tast, and orange soda smelt disgusting, even after hours and hours of accamalitising. I am more dissapointed then you American customers because I had to pay 35 plus delivery cost.

Iv been smoking Tangiers for a good 2 years now, NEVER HAD A PROBLEM. I never used a tutorial/video on any forum, it says how to pack it on the package! Never ever had a single flavor smell anything like BBQ, (maybe 1 flavor and that was before 2 hours of acclimation). Sucks for all you people who dont know how to smoke tangiers.

The word is funnel. It is not spelled with a Ph it is spelled with an F. I guess the Ph is used to be trendy or cool, maybe a reference to the band Phish. Much like ending words with a "z" when they should end with a "s" it is inproper. That is why I said it is a Funnel bowl. BTW iamscott06 thanks for posting about Tangiers yet again. Is this your 220th post about Tangiers out of your 263 posts? Laughable man! Ha!

I didn't add any of your Noir reviews because it has already been established that you do not like them. In your post you only stated Tangiers and to me that is like saying Microsoft when you actually only meant Windows Vista.

I was unaware that this thread was solely directed towards the Noir line as I didn't see anyone specifically state such. The reason I "came out of the woodwork" was not to promote a single thing, it was to defend what I personally do which by Dunkle was so elegently put;

I have never and will never on any forum attempt to promote a product without being a vedor, paying for such advertisments, or getting permission. The reason I am here is to answer any questions people have which in turn takes the load off this server because it will then be less cluttered with the same questions.

You CAN freely state what you think about the product. No one is deleteing your posts about your problems with Tangiers and in the end it is all personal preference so there is no right answer.

Fanboi here, I just picked up 6 more flavors and they all smell fantastic. Just letting the tubs sit open makes the room smell like which ever flavor is open.

We know that's what you're here for. You add little to nothing other than to constantly cheerlead for Tangiers. I have over 4700 posts I bet it would be hard if not impossible for you to find 220 with praise for Nakhla in them. That's why it's laughable.
