Cut & Composition

Hookah-Hookah Grapefruit is a long stringy cut. Something much like roll-your-own cigarette tobacco. There are no stems to be found. The tobacco is wet, but more oily than other brands. It will leave your fingers wet but not slimy.

Price & Quantities Available

  • One Shot – $1.10
  • 50g – $3.25
  • 250g – $14.95
  • 1kg – $47.95

The Experience

Grapefruit took more time than usual to get started. The richest flavor and smoke were available in the first fifteen minutes. The tobacco produced no head-buzz whatsoever during the entire session, which lasted about an hour an twenty minutes.

The Flavor

Hookah-Hookah Grapefruit does resemble a real grapefruit. However, it’s much sweeter. Most grapefruits purchased in a standard grocery store are relatively sour, and that’s a sensation I expected in the tobacco, but was nowhere to be found. There are some very subtle notes of what might be a floral jasmine flavor, or perhaps even a clove flavor.

The Insight

Grapefruit tasted best when I wasn’t trying to compare it to a real grapefruit. Though it does have some real similarities. Subjectively speaking, I found myself comparing it more to pink lemonade than to grapefruit.

Who Should Try This Flavor

It’s difficult to find a niche that this flavor really belongs to. On the one hand, it is a sweet fruity flavor, but on the other, it’s not especially realistic. My hunch is that if you’re a fan of ambiguous fruit, or cocktail flavors, you’ll probably really enjoy this one.
