How to Restore Dry Shisha Tobacco

Shisha Tobacco is the moist, flavoured tobacco smoked in a hookah pipe. Shisha comes in myriad of flavours, but one thing they all have in common is the need to stay moist. Properly stored shisha can be kept for up to six weeks, if it is stored in an airtight container. However, sometimes the shisha dries out and needs to be refreshed before smoking. If you don't refresh the tobacco, you will be faced with a hot, harsh smoke rather than the smooth, cool flavour for which hookahs are known.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Pour your shisha into the airtight container. As you transfer it, gently touch it in several areas to test the moisture content. You want it to be full and moist, not dry, brittle or shrivelled.

  2. 2

    Add a small amount (about the size of a dime) of your liquid (e.g. honey) to the shisha. Mix it thoroughly throughout the entire amount. Test the shisha again for moisture. It should be full, firm and moist, not juicy or soggy.

  3. 3

    Continue adding in liquid a tiny bit at a time until the shisha is moist enough to smoke. Seal the airtight container until you're ready to use the shisha.
