Cut & Composition
The tobacco is cut medium and stringy. If you roll your own cigarettes, you’ll notice the tobacco cut is nearly identical. There are no stems to be found. The tobacco is fairly wet, but more oily and watery feeling than other brands. This may be due to the amount of glycerin used in production as compared to other elements of shisha tobacco.

This review was performed after several smoking sessions using a Al Fakher Large Solid hookah and a HJ Alien Mini phunnel bowl.
Hookah-Hookah Margarita started smoking rapidly. With two coals, it began smoking adequately within two pulls. The smoke was an average density and pleasant. The flavor came roughly two to three minutes after the smoke started and lasted about one hour. The smoke continued after the flavor had faded. Margarita had no trouble smoking with minimal heat and required very little attention. Margarita has a chemical scent to it, which is present in the flavor, but not overpowering.
Margarita is extremely mild. No particular flavor stands out. There are subtle hints of lime and a flavor to mimic that of tequila, though it’s unlikely you would be able to discern it without being told what it’s supposed to taste like. There is also a definite natural tobacco taste present as well, though it’s difficult to decipher what is the flavor of the tobacco, versus what is intended to taste like margarita. The flavor in Margarita is also very sensitive. Too much heat produces a burnt taste, though unlike other tobaccos, it will go away if you reduce the heat.
I can’t say that I’m a fan of Hookah-Hookah Margarita. The flavor is not unpleasant, but it isn’t really anything impressive either. And the subtle chemical taste is a big turn off. The fact that too much heat produces a bad taste is also a big negative. The smoke also long outlasts the flavor, essentially nullifying the last half hour of your session. On the other hand, Margarita was easy to set up and required very little extra attention and didn’t taste horrible.
Who Should Try This Flavor
It’s difficult to project who may enjoy this flavor. If you’re a big fan of flavors which attempt to mimic alcoholic beverages, you may enjoy this one. Also, being that it’s only lightly sweet makes it a decent candidate for someone who also doesn’t care for heavy sweetness. If you’re sensitive to chemical tastes in your tobacco, you’ll want to steer clear of this one.
