This flavor is the Batman of shisha flavors. Its dark and mysterious while strong and all over the place. HookahCompany.com says, “Sweet Drops by Al Fakher Arena is a sweet strawberry flavor with a bit of watermelon and mint.” Without being told that this flavor was a strawberry and watermelon mix I’m not sure if I would have picked up on it. The mint has a wintergreen tone while the “watermelon and strawberry” flavor are vague and mess with my mind when I try to decipher them for myself. With all that being said, the flavor is easy to smoke and light on the lungs. It has a heavy and robust flavor that sits on the back of your tongue while the mint tap dances in every corner of your mouth.
The flavor is very light, sugary, and un-interesting. At the start of the session, the flavor is that of Double Bubble chewing gum. Once the bowl is heated and smoking well, this tobacco actually has a likeness to a sweet tart that has been under the front seat of the car for a while. As a matter of fact, if you go to your hookah shelf and take a drag off of an old hose that you have neglected to wash, this stuff kind tastes like that.
Since the tobacco smells like a mix of melon and citrus, I would compare the flavor to that of a passion fruit. The flavor has the sweetness found in melon flavors backed with a bite you would find in citrus flavors. The sweat and sour components of the flavor are balanced in a way that anybody can enjoy this flavor at any time. The flavor is not over whelming and doesn’t leave you asking for more. Since this is a washed tobacco that contains little nicotine, this is one tobacco that should be in everyone’s stash.
At the start of the session, the flavor does resemble an orange soda. While the bowl heats up, the flavor becomes a thick and mild orange flavor. The flavor is not a natural orange flavor but more of a candy sweet smoke without a synthetic after taste that most shishas bring to the table. A pleasurable session can still be salvaged once the tobacco is over heated. The flavor will return if a proper heat level can be obtained after a short period of time.
Two puffs into a session and you will find yourself reminiscing about times when you were a kid sitting pool side with a fist full of blue Sour Punch Straws and a can of Surge. The flavor is almost identical to those flavor packed tubes of punchy sour goodness. Being that this is a washed tobacco that contains little nicotine, this is another tobacco that should be in everyone’s stash.

There is a new technique that, so far, has been proven (by myself and others) to instantly acclimate Tangiers Noir Tobacco. Before removing the tobacco from the sealed bag, massage the bag for 4-5 minutes. This completely mixes the tobacco in its “California” climate controlled bag. Then, empty the tobacco in to your shallow air tight container, and let…
Electric Lotus should be renamed Little Girl’s first perfume. If you could take the drip tray from a Slushy machine and pour it over some tobacco and then sprinkle it with sugar and pollen… you would have this stuff. The flavor is as vague as the name is. There is a noticeable generic “flower” flavor but other than that there are no distinguishable fruits or spices in this flavor.
The flavor is light, airy, and easy to overheat. The grapefruit flavor is spot on to its name though; there is a nice citrus flavor backed with a bitter flavor that you would expect from an actual grapefruit. If the tobacco can be smoked successfully, it could be a very pleasant smoke on a hot, muggy day. Since the flavor is not heavy and thick, like you might expect from Tangiers, it might just become a summer smoke for the more experienced hookah enthusiasts.
