And $20 for 250 grams? I'd rather get TWO Al Fakher 250 gram tubs and still save close to $4.



you gotta splurge and pamper yourself once in a while wink.gif


I've smoked Starbuzz before and it's not all that it's rated to be compared to AF. The price doesn't justify the quality.

i have no idea. Buy hey, you can 300 grams of AF shisha for like 9 bucks off PYH, that's like, 600 grams of shisha for the price of just 1 can of SB. It's really decisions-decisions. I think SB is worth the extra 10 bucks. But not all flavors. Granted, they are the only ones hwo make a Non-shitty Pumpkin Pie, and it's good, but it also could be better..

personally I think starbuzz is a good "social" smoke. Anytime I have guests over (especially for new ones to hookah) I put in starbuzz because it is pleasing to someone new to it. Not all ppl like the buzz that stuff like AF will give you, especially people smoking for their first few times, although there are exceptions.

I barely ever smoke Starbuzz on my own. Edited by RayVer

We are not connected in any way. And Please do not Judge Tonic based on other tobacco brands until you try it your self.

When we say Premium we mean it. Tonic goes through at least 5 extras steps in manufacturing to assure quality, which other companies do not.


Thanks,

Tonic Says Made in HKJ, whereas Starbuzz is produced right here, in California. With VIRGINIA TOBACCO.

HKJ = Jordan.

Wake up people.

Bobby regardless of that, have you seen this product? Its the same can, almost exact label, same packing inside the can and the shisha looks the same....and i'm not saying it is the SAME but there are sure a lot of similarities

regardless of all of that the bottom line is it smokes good, good product so far

Bobby,
Are ALL the starbuzz flavours made in the US? I'd heard they only make a few here, the rest in Jordan, but since they make some in the US they lable it all that way...

Have I been mis-informed?

Well I kept promising a review and then ran out of time so I figured I might as well actually do it now.

Tonic Sour Apple

Smell/Flavor: Smells like Double Apple with a tiny bit of something else that's sweet mixed in/

Cut: Very fine and very very juicy just like starbuzz or fumari

Smoke: Decent sized clouds, it wasn't too difficult to get a whiteout although I have seem much better cloud wise before

Buzz: Wow ton's of buzz, usually I smoke 3 bowls of Al Waha or Layalina before I get a buzz but this hit me on the 5th drag.

Amount(approx)/Duration: In a SS Bowl It smoked 45 minutes, in the medium phunnel we got a solid 2 hours before it went south.

Hookah Type: 28" SS Egyptian

Bowl: SS Bowl and Medium Phunnel

Foil/Screen: Reynolds Heavy Duty Single Layer

Coal/Amount: Starlight Coals 3 pieces for SS bowl, 4-5 for the Phunnel

Liquid in Base: Ice Water 3/4" above the bottom of them stem

Overall satisfaction (scale 1 to 10): 8/10 I'm not a apple or double apple fan at all. In fact I despise apple flavors more then anything in this world, However, this shisha definetly changes things quite a bit. I didn't only just like this flavor I absolutley loved it and I'm definelty gonna order more when it goes up on sale. It will now join the ranks of my go to smokes, even though it doesnt' give quite the clouds I look for like Tangiers or Starbuzz it's damn close. Props again to Tasqueem for sending out these great free samples, it's a great way to show your customer base you really do care and it ensures you'll be getting my money in the future.

Yes, I have seen the can. Wael showed it to me. Yes, he has a number of different flavoring companies. The tobacco is from here though. The cans are not hard to get at all...at least if you know about anything in that area of trade. He had many fragrance bottles he showed to me, no i'm not going to talk of his business, but it all depends on the flavor. He's smart for NOT COMPLETELY outsourcing, let's put it that way...

I finally got the shisha from my parents house. Smells good hope to smoke this weekend after midterms. One thing though I wish the sticker they put on the box that it was shipped in was put in the box so I could use it. mellow.gif Anyone else agree? ( I know this has nothing to do with the tobacco)
