Hookafina Pink Grapefruit Review

Authored by D on 5 August 2010 No Comment

Full Disclosure

The Hookah was kind enough to send us this tobacco for free to try it out and share our opinions. We always make every effort to review honestly regardless of what means were used to acquire the product. Hookahfina Tobacco is available directly from The Hookah for $15.50 in a 250g tin.



Cut & Composition

The cut of Hookafina hookah tobacco is a medium cut and is very wet, but not dripping like other brands such as Fantasia. The colour of the tobacco is light brown and is not dyed.

Price and Quantities Available

  • 250g tin – $15.50

The Set-Up

Hookafina Pink Grapefruit was smoked out of a Khalil Mamoon hookah out of both an Alien Mini Phunnel bowl and a Tangiers Small Phunnel bowl with four Chronic Hookah coals, using two at a time on each side.

The Experience

Pink Grapefruit started smoking immediately after the coals were added. After about 4 – 5 puffs and the coals sitting on the bowl for about a minute, large clouds were produced along with adequate flavour. The first side of the bowl smoked for 45 minutes until two more coals were added on the other side and continued to smoke for another 45 minutes. The tobacco in a small phunnel lasted an hour and a half.

The Flavour

The flavour of Pink Grapefruit is not in your face like it would be if you were eating a real grapefruit, but the flavour is not non-existant. Although mild, you can taste a sweet grapefruit taste at the back of your tongue. While a real grapefruit is more bitter in real life, this tobacco is sweeter, more candy tasting.

The Insight

Pink Grapefruit is a nice alternative to all the sweet melons and watermelon flavours on the market today. It is very unique, but the flavour is not as powerful as the smell indicates. But, because it is not very intense, it can be smoked fairly often and is a nice addition to anyones collection.

Who Should Try This Flavour

Anyone who likes melon, orange, watermelon or any flavours like that will enjoy this flavour. Although not powerful in taste, this may be a good thing for people who do not enjoy powerful fruit flavours. Anyone who does not enjoy getting a buzz from smoking shisha, this tobacco is washed and will not produce a buzz. People who hate grapefruits, such as myself, will still enjoy this flavour as it is not as bitter as a real grapefruit and is sweet.
