Choosing A New Shisha Brand - Where To Begin?

How To Choose A New Shisha Flavor

Whether you are new to hookah and trying to decide where to begin or you're a seasoned hookah pro getting burnt out on your favorite flavors, it can be a bit daunting deciding what shisha to try out next. There are a few things to consider when picking a new brand or flavor so today we're going to go over 3 simple tips to help you decide what's next for your taste buds! 

Blonde Leaf vs. Dark Leaf

This is one of the most overlooked factors for many new hookah smokers but is also one of the most important things to consider when deciding what flavor to try out next. For a detailed run down on the differences between blonde and dark leaf tobaccos check out our blog on Blonde Leaf Shisha vs. Dark Leaf Shisha, but essentially blonde leaf tobaccos will have a lower nicotine buzz and are the recommended starting point for new smokers where dark leaf tobaccos will have a high nicotine buzz and are only recommended for experienced smokers, so be sure to keep your desired nicotine level in mind when deciding what flavor to go with. 

What Type Of Flavors Do You Like?

This is one of the easiest and most effective ways to narrow down your choices. Think about the types of flavors that you like in food. Do you have a sweet tooth and enjoy dessert style flavors like chocolate or vanilla? Are you more in to sour/tart snacks like lemonade or citrus fruits? Maybe you're more in to the spicy or floral notes of cardamom, jasmine, or rose. Deciding on what flavor notes you like will also help you to narrow down what brands to check out as each brand has their own unique menu of flavors as well. 

Which Shisha Brand Fits Me Best?

Each brand of shisha will have its' own unique menu of flavors and its' own distinct characteristics as well. Certain brands may offer a tobacco that is finely chopped and has a high flavoring juice content while other brands may offer a more choppy cut of tobacco that has less excess juice. Many brands may make the same flavor such as Peach, Watermelon, Double Apple, etc., but each one will be slightly different from the next. Once you've decided on a specific flavor try picking up a small 50g or 100g size of that flavor from a few different brands to see which one works best for you. 

And that's pretty much it folks! Ultimately there is no right or wrong answer and it may take a few tries to find the perfect fit for you, but when choosing a new flavor make sure to keep in mind your desired nicotine content and the general style of flavors that you like and then sample that style of flavor from a few brands to find the perfect one for your taste buds.
