Hookafina Pink Grapefruit Review

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. Because it is not very intense, it can be smoked fairly often and is a nice addition to anyones collection.

Starbuzz Margarita

Smoking Starbuzz is always a great experience. With two coals and a windcover, this tobacco will start smoking within a pull or two. The clouds that are produced are large, dense and will last about 45 minutes to an hour until new coals will need to be applied. With a Tangiers small phunnel, we were able to achieve sessions from 1 hour and 30 minutes to two hours. If overheated, the flavour will be nice for a short period of period of time but that will disappear quickly and become extremely harsh.

Nakhla Double Apple

Smoking Nakhla Double Apple brings back memories of the early days of smoking hookah when it was the only hookah tobacco that was easily accessible. It is a traditional tobacco and, with 2 or 3 coals, will start to produce amazing smoke within the first 2 pulls. With proper coal management, you can achieve very thick clouds and great, anise filled flavour.

Shishavac… Where were you?

Shisha has been smoked for thousands of years, but yet, people still have trouble setting up a hookah. Huffing and puffing on those dirty hoses, preparing coals on a burner and drying your stem can all be a pain, not to mention all the smokeless pulling you will have to endure at the beginning of your hookah smoking session. Introducing the Shishavac, a product of Tannous Innovations.

Shisha on the iPhone with iShisha

Shisha has made it’s way from the middle east, to north america, and now, to the virtual world on portable handheld devices. iShisha, a game by Jan Ebbe, makes it fun and easy to set up a hookah on the go. The game itself if very simple, but also a little boring.

Fantasia Cherry Cola

I used to love Cherry Cola and used to mix it by hand with some Nakhla Cherry and Nakhla Cola, which, once I found Hookah John, became Al Fakher Cherry and Al Fakher Cola. Both mixes were amazing. When I found this Fantasia flavour though, I thought it would have been the end to my mixing Cherry Cola days. I was wrong. The Cherry and the Cola where both there, although the Cola was mild, but that sweetness and freshness of drinking a good Cherry Coke were not.

Starbuzz Pirates Cave

The flavour was almost like Starbuzz Margarita with a hint of added lime. It was very sweet but also a little tangy. The lime is probably the most dominant flavour. Over all very good, but still leaves me wondering why it is called “Pirates Cave.”

Buying Your First Hookah

Having your own hookah saves money. It is a lot cheeper and more fun to have your friends over at your house then going to a hookah lounge. A typical lounge will cost about 10$ a hookah, then about 5 – 10$ for a refill. Why not take the 10$ you were going to spend there and put it towards your own hookah? Trust me, it’s worth it.
The Hookah
First, you will have to pick a hookah. A good hookah should run you in about 50 – 150$ depending on the …
