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…
Babylon is a fairly common composition of sweet blueberry and mint. The flavor is similar to other popular offerings such as Starbuzz Blue Mist and Social Smoke’s Baja Blue. Tonic’s version, Babylon, outperforms Starbuzz’s Blue Mist in longevity, with the mint flavor lasting nearly the entire length of the session. Babylon also uses a bit more mint than other similar flavors.
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.
A representative from Social Smoke says that the prices of products sold in their online store will be going down, “way down”. The source says, “Basically we will be the cheapest (or match the cheapest) on the internet for many items.”
The circumstances leading to this drop in prices, as well as where about the prices will land, are still unclear. Also still unclear are exactly what products will experience the most significant drop in prices, since the company’s website sells a full gamut of hookah tobacco and accessories.
Pure speculation says …
Blue Rain is a candy-sour grape, with a mild mint element to it and that is very much what it tastes like. It’s positioned to be a competitor for Starbuzz’ Blue Mist, though the taste is really not at all similar. Within the hookah world, the flavor is much closer to Al Fakher’s Golden Grape, though a bit more refined.
JM’s Peach is a sweet and mild, yet realistic version of the fruit flavor. The taste is not overwhelming, and while generally more dramatic than a real peach, the intended flavor is clear. If you’re very sensitive to subtle flavors, you may find a hint of a floral taste on inhale, though most won’t notice.
Baja Blue is closely related to the Starbuzz flavor, Blue Mist. It is a sweet blueberry flavor set atop a light mint sensation. The blueberry taste is a candy caricature of the real thing, but that is not a negative point. The sweetness melds just about perfectly with the mint to create something that isn’t obnoxiously fruity and sweet, but isn’t mild and bland either.
Nakhla Mandarin Orange is a more realistic orange flavor than many other brands. It does indeed taste very much like a Clementine or Orange Cutie. It’s sweet, but not overpowering and only very slightly tart. As is typical for Nakhla tobacco, the natural tobacco flavor does shine through, though it’s a soft undertone in this case.

If you have ever checked out Hookah John‘s website, you will definitely know that he has his own line of hookah hoses. They are amazing and the Narbish Version 4 will soon be hitting the market. In a recent YouTube video, John himself stated that the Narbish version 4 will be out “soon”. It was later posted on Royal Hookah Forum that the Narbish Version 4 would be out in two weeks. The new Narbish is said to have a shorter hose adapter that will accommodate smaller hookahs.
