Like the art of growing the Bonsai tree, getting Tangiers Hookah Tobacco to smoke perfectly takes patience and craftiness. Because of its robust design and sensitivity to heat, several factors need to be taken into account — humidity acclimation, packing style, and coal rotation all need to be managed meticulously. Even though one customer left a review calling it a “man’s shisha,” with the proper preparation and heat maintenance, Tangiers can be enjoyed by adults of any gender!

Because of the diversity of hookahs smokers around the globe, there’s really not a single, correct way to smoke Tangiers – everyone will tell you something different. However, it is widely agreed that you’ll get the best results by using a non-traditional bowl (such as a Phunnel Hookah Bowl or a Vortex Hookah Bowl), one where the tobacco is allowed to marinate in its own juices instead of sluicing through holes at the bottom. A YouTube search for anything Tangiers related will yield many instructional “how to” videos on users’ packing techniques for you to follow if you’re not getting the desired results. Once you get it right, you’ll finally see what all the rave is!

Tangiers comes in 4 lines; the “OG” or “Noir” style, which is the original, unwashed hookah tobacco, the “Lucid” style, which is lighter and less “buzzy,” “Birquq” which is somewhere between Lucid and Noir, and F-Line style, which is a caffeinated version of Tangiers (hold on to your butts!). Here we present to you the top 10 most popular Tangiers Hookah Tobacco flavors:

10. It’s Like That One Breakfast Cereal. There’s been some debate as to exactly which “one” breakfast cereal this flavor is emulating, but the general consensus has it down to 2 possibilities (which I won’t name): one with a cartoon toucan as its mascot, and the other with the slogan “The great taste of apples and cinnamon make the great taste that’s always the winna-mon.” (Seriously, I didn’t make that up). This flavor is available in the “lucid” line, and will have you reminiscing of the brightly colored fruity puffs that always left the milk pink.

9. Iced Peach Tea. A refreshing, cool brewed iced tea taste with a splash of orchard-fresh peach puts this robust flavor in the top 10. The “earthy” taste of the tea flavor makes this a popular mixer to add some zing to your bowl!

8. Kashmir Apple. Apples grown in the orchards of the Kashmir region of northern India benefit from its lush and fertile environment, resulting in a longer shelf life, smooth red skin, and a distinct, crisp aroma. While one of dozens of apple flavored shisha tobaccos, Kashmir apple from Tangiers is spicy and delicious, and is reportedly the “buzziest” of all the apple flavors.

7. Tropical Revenge. It’s the revenge…of the tropical fruits! I don’t know who or what wronged them to invoke their wrath, but this flavor is a dish best served…hot! Tropical revenge is a tangy medley of exotic fruit flavors (with a noticeable grapefruit twang) that remind me of the sugary fruit juice boxes I got in my Ninja Turtles lunchbox.

6. Green Apple Candy. Despite green apples having a sour reputation, this flavor is surprisingly sweet and tastes like more like a green Jolly Rancher. The flavor is lengthy and luscious, and many have experienced a small anise (black licorice) aftertaste.

5. Orange Soda. A super strong orange flavor that will knock you six ways from Sunday if you’re not prepared for it! Fans of this flavor have commented on an almost “carbonated” taste at the onset, staying true to its name and separating it from plain orange flavored shishas. Give “lucid” orange soda a try if the “OG” packs a little too much punch.

4. New Lime. New lime is like New Coke, but doesn’t suck (ha!). Based on customer feedback (and from personal experience), this is by far the most spot-on lime flavor, period. You’ll notice a more acidic and “heavy” sour smoke than lemon, and a properly packed bowl with punctilios coal rotation will yield un-dwindling flavor for 2 hours or more.

3. Blue Gumball. A strong blueberry taste with a raspberry overtone is what makes this flavor a must-try for berry-heads (available in both regular and “lucid”). Unlike an actual gumball that will lose its flavor after chewing it for only a few minutes (don’t you hate that?), Tangiers blue gumball will keep its palatable piquancy for the duration of the bowl.

2. Horchata. This flavor is based on the traditional Spanish drink made of rice, barley, sesame seeds, tigernuts, and ground almonds. Many have noticed a distinct light sugary vanilla taste starting out, with a denouement of sweet cinnamon towards the end. Add some milk to the base if you so dare for the most velvety of smoke clouds. Horchata is available in both the original and “lucid” line as well.

1. (Tie) Kashmir Peach and Juicy Peach. Two fantastic peach flavors share the #1 spot on this list, and rightfully so. Tangiers has harnessed the savory flavors of the Prunus persica flawlessly with Kashmir Peach (a more floral and “airy” peach taste with a spicy buzz similar to the Kashmir apple) and Juicy Peach (a more “fresh” peach taste akin to biting into the actual fruit itself).

Remember, it may take several tries to get Tangiers to smoke to your liking, so don’t give up!  Happy Smoking!

Honorable Mention: Schnozberry. Never heard of a schnozberry? We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.

    I have to add this…blueberry! Blueberry is definitely one of the top ten flavor buy no one ever has it in stock. If this list was determned by sales then it’s very skewed due to the availability of some flavors.
