Nargile or Shisha Culture in Turkey

Nargile or Shisha Culture in Turkey
Nargile or Shisha smoking is a very old tradition in Turkey and it became particularly trendy among the youth generation. This water pipe is made with lamb’s leather, wire-reinforced tube, brass or wood plumbing and a clear glass chamber.
If you are planning to purchase a Nargile in Turkey, we recommend that you buy the tobacco, called the tombeki, from Turkey as it is very hard to find abroad. You can find the widest variety at the Misir Carsisi ( Eyptian Bazaar )in Istanbul .
You will need to put live coal at the brazier end, however you can find this in your home country as well.
