How to pack Al Fakher

Al Fakher is perfect for beginners who’re just learning how to pack bowls correctly. This hookah tobacco is versatile and unpretentious. Al Fakher has a very fine slicing so it doesn’t need extra cutting. Due to the fact that the tobacco mixture isn’t too abundantly soaked in syrup we don’t recommend squeezing it. This Virginia based tobacco is comparatively light – the nicotine content is only 0.5%.

It is recommended to pack Al Fakher on Turkish types of bowls. Fluff the tobacco and make a hole in the middle if desired. Smoke with 3 charcoal cubes of 25 mm.
