Cut & Composition
Hydro Herbal is a tobacco-free herbal molasses. The cut is long and wiry, like strands of very thick hair. However, it is short enough not to disrupt packing. The herbs are thoroughly drenched and will leave your fingers very slimy.

Kali Drizzle began smoking within the first three minutes. It smoked exactly like a traditional hookah tobacco, producing large amounts of smoke, and getting a tad harsh if overheated too much. The optimal temperature for flavor and smoke were very close to each other making Kali Drizzle surprisingly trouble-free in the heat-management department. The flavor also stood up very well against changes in heat, with no discernable difference in the flavor. The session lasted about an hour and thirty minutes before the flavor and smoke began to die out.
Kali Drizzle is most likely a combination of mint, blueberries and grape. The mint flavoring is relatively heavy, at times almost overpowering. But berry and grape flavors do shine through, though neither are even remotely realistic. Rather they’re more of a candy caricature of the real thing, and at first, almost chemical.
Hydro Kali Drizzle is almost certainly an emulation of popular tobacco flavors such as Starbuzz Blue Mist or Social Smoke’s Baja Blue. The flavors are very similar, but perhaps surprisingly, Hydro’s herbal alternative maintains its full gamut of flavors throughout the entire session, where similar true tobacco flavors become stale before the session is over.
Who Should Try This Flavor
Smokers who didn’t pack their own bowl probably won’t be able to tell they’re not smoking real tobacco, Hydro has simply done a very good job in that respect. If you’re already a fan of the mint-blueberry flavors, you’ll likely enjoy this one as well. Or, if you’re looking for something with a lot of crowd appeal, but without the tobacco, Hydro’s Kali Drizzle will probably be a good choice.
