Some hookah tobacco such as Tangiers, will acclimate to the air temperature and humidity when exposed to external environment. This will actually give the tobacco a better flavor and texture when smoking.
If you expect to smoke through your shisha in a relatively short time period (a week or two) these containers are great. If you want to store your shisha for longer periods, we recommend other shisha storage containers
. Brands such as Fantasia, Starbuzz and Al Fakher may dry out and are typically stored better in an air tight sealed jar or zip lock.
Note: Not all shisha tobacco should be stored in these containers due to the breateabitliy of the container. They are used with the understanding that some air passes through the seals to help with acclimation. These lids are not 100% air tight or leak proof.
