Starbuzz Sex on the Beach

At first smell, the shisha smells extremely good and very, very sweet. I also detected a but of a tangy smell when smelling the tobacco, perhaps orange or lemon. With two Chronic Hookah coals and one layer of foil, the shisha started to produce amazing smoke and good flavour after 3 – 5 pulls. Unfortunately however, the flavour does not last the whole session and usually leaves about 20 minutes into the session with the Small, and 10 minutes with the Alien. After the flavour leaves, you can continue to smoke the shisha without any flavour but still nice clouds or add a new set of coals to the other side.

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.

Starbuzz White Peach

The aroma and flavor of White Peach match almost exactly. And, unlike most tobacco, the flavor is nearly spot on. The peach taste is not a caricature of the real fruit and it’s not a candy version. Rather, the taste very closely mimics that of a sweet, ripe peach. Many who have sat down to smoke White Peach point out the flavor immediately without being told what it is. The taste is both sweet (though not sickly so) and refreshing—much like the real thing. The flavor also accurately mimics the juicy sensation of a real peach. Don’t be surprised to actually begin salivating between draws.

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.”

Starbuzz Sweet Melon

Unlike the Sweet Melon flavors produced by Al Fakher and Nakhla which focus on producing a Cantaloupe flavor, Starbuzz Sweet Melon is obviously a blend of melon flavors like Watermelon, Hondey Dew, Cantaloupe and possibly another melon which is difficult to directly identify. Unfortunately however, the sweet Watermelon flavor dramatically overpowers the others and what we’re left with is a very sweet overall flavor, and an over powering but more mild candy/buble-gum Watermelon. It may be possible to tone the sweetness down by adding about 15% mint shisha (such as Al Fakher) to your bowl.

Starbuzz Marlette

Marlette has a sophisticated rich, dark, sweet, almost spicy, flavor. There are clear undertones of berry and grape. It produces a similar sensation in the back of your throat to a glass of red wine. This sensation can be accentuated by adding 4 – 8oz of merlot or shiraz red wine to the water in your hookah base.
