Hi y’all. Like hookah but find it too sweet. Any less sweet ones I can buy? Perhaps more natural like and less fruity / artificial like Al Fakher etc...

I saw your other post about traditional tobacco, so I'll kind of respond to both posts here.

 

Nakhla Zaghloul is going to be an unflavored traditional hookah tobacco. there is also zaghloul lite which will have less nicotine.  Nakhla Double Apple is oddly enough not apple flavored. It taste like anise or black licorice. This will also be a very traditional flavor as I believe this was the first flavored hookah tobacco introduced.  If you want to avoid all fruit flavors, you could consider mint, cinnamon, coffee or chocolate flavors.

Afzal has several Paan flavors as well.

 

There are so many flavors for hookah it's impossible to try them all and everyone has different tastes which makes recommendations difficult. 

 

What would be your ideal flavor if you had a magic wand?

Hi skoozle. Thanks for that. I think I figured out what’s best for me. Pure raw tobacco leaf with a small amount of mint hookah (AF etc...) on top for flavor and to help it burn better. Not sweet. Perfect!

That's great that you found what you were looking for. 

Pure raw tobacco leaves as in just loose leaf tobacco? Or is that a specific brand? 

If you want to experiment, you could try adding some glycerin to the tobacco leaves to get a better burn or smoke. There seems to be some good information in the How-To Workshop section for DIY hookah tobacco. 

If you try anything else, let us know how it goes.
