Shisha charcoal or hookah coals come in many different shapes and styles, so it can be a bit confusing what the differences are and which type of coal you should be using for your hookah. We'll cover the materials, types and best brands, so you know what to look for the next time you need to buy shisha coals.
You might not have given it much thought, but what goes into making shisha coals is extremely important. Have you ever smoked shisha at a friend’s house or hookah bar and copped a massive headache or strange buzzing sensation while smoking? It was probably caused by instant-light or quick-light charcoal, which contains nasty chemicals to get the shisha coal burning quickly. There are also many hookah coal brands that use cheap fillers like wood and sawdust to minimise production costs, which can release unpleasant odours when burnt that change the taste of the shisha tobacco. One way to tell the quality of the coal someone is using is to check the colour when it is lit: whiter coals burn hotter and indicate cheap fillers and chemicals, whereas browner coals more likely contain only premium ingredients. Whichever coal you choose for your hookah, make sure that it’s made from 100% natural materials, ideally coconut shells. Coconut shell charcoal provides an odourless and tasteless burn so you can savour 100% of the shisha flavour, plus a long and consistent burn.
Why so many shapes for such a simple product??? Each shape has its pros and cons — there's no “one size fits all” when it comes to shisha charcoal.
Now you know the different shapes of hookah coals and their uses, here are our favourite brands made from coconut shells and the shapes that they are available in.
The right shisha coals need to be paired with the correct style of hookah to create the ultimate shisha experience.

Now that you have all of the information on the best shisha coals in the market and the best kind of hookahs to use, it is time for you to choose the best flavours to complete your experience. Hookah tobacco is usually derived from a range of alternative ingredients rather than using tobacco itself. This means that the shisha you are smoking may not contain as many harsh and nasty chemicals as a regular cigarette or if you were smoking pure tobacco through your hookah. Many people choose to smoke a more natural shisha brand for a more pleasurable experience without causing as much harm to their bodies as regular tobacco would.
As the sole distributor of teabacco in the Australian and New Zealand markets, Shisha Works provides access to a world of shisha flavours derived from black tea leaves sourced from Sri Lanka. The flavours of teabacco in Australia are completely diverse, so you can choose the one that suits your taste buds the most or work your way through all of the options, making every shisha experience as enjoyable as the last.
Teabacco flavours include delights such as watermelon, kiwi, lime and mint for a fresh and natural-tasting shisha experience that emits a lovely scent. Additional flavours that are available in the Heaven Leaf range include:
There are over 30 flavours available in the teabacco range, and you can also mix and match to create an incredible range of shisha cocktails. There’s never a dull shisha session to be had when Shisha Works is involved.
Everything you could possibly need, from the best shisha coals for your hookah to quality products from teabacco Australia is available to you directly from our online store. Feel free to contact us should you wish to discuss wholesale options for businesses or just the right products for your personal use. We work hard to ensure that we can satisfy all of your shisha needs, be it for hookah tobacco, hookahs, shisha bowls or accessories. Shisha Works truly has it all.
