The original line from Tangiers Tobacco and the first "dark leaf" shisha blend ever produced, the Tangiers Noir collection has been delivering smokers a distinctive hookah experience for decades. All of the Tangiers production takes place under a close watch to ensure consistent quality with a strong focus on overall performance and flavor. Each pouch receives a symbol of authenticity alongside specific distributor markings to ensure that every flavor you receive is authentic and meets their rigorous quality standards. They even maintain small details such as hand-written labels and a direct phone number to the Tangiers office; just in case you had any questions or concerns about your shisha. When you're ready to move beyond your typical blonde leaf shisha blends, the Tangiers Noir line will be here to deliver the same unique experience that revolutionized the hookah industry.
Tangiers was originally produced in San Diego, California, however, they have since moved production to Arizona in the USA!
Tangiers creates their shisha with a blend of robust US tobacco leaves, glycerin, molasses, and natural flavoring oils.
Dark leaf shisha flavors are made using dark brown (sometimes black) tobacco leaves that contain a much higher amount of nicotine and deliver a strong tobacco flavor. This results in a more powerful nicotine head buzz when smoking.
Yes, Tangiers Noir shisha contains one of the highest concentrations of nicotine that you can find in hookah tobacco and is only rivaled by the Tangiers Burley and F-Line collections. It will deliver a powerful head buzz and is not recommended for beginner smokers or those with nicotine sensitivity.
Tangiers shisha requires a unique packing technique for it to smoke properly. Tangiers is designed to be used specifically in a phunnel hookah bowl and will not smoke as intended in any other type of bowl. It requires an extremely dense pack and smokes best using lower-temperature coals. Check out our blog for a complete guide on how to pack Tangiers shisha.
Each Tangiers flavor arrives in its vacuum-sealed, double wrapped plastic pouch that is designed to keep the tobacco inside fresh. Since these pouches are not resealable, you will need to store the shisha in a shallow, airtight, plastic vessel such as a shisha storage container or Tupperware container. Take a look at our blog for more information on how to store shisha tobacco.
The main difference between the four Tangiers lines (other than flavor availability) is the amount of nicotine contained in each one. Tangiers Birquq contains the lowest amount of nicotine within the brand, the Noir line contains more than Birquq, and the Burley line and F-Line contain the highest amount. Tangiers Burley and F-Line contain the same amount of nicotine, however, F-Line also contains caffeine for an added kick.
