When I first started smoking hookah I had no clue what I was doing. So to help out the people like me I decided to start this blog with tutorials and reviews about everything hookah. For any beginning questions please use the search box as many basic tutorials have already been posted. Also, check out my Youtube channel which has many video tutorials with more to come.
This is also a blog for anything hookah, including media and art. I hope this will be an interactive blog so questions and submissions are not only welcome but encouraged! Feedback is also appreciated (as long as it's constructive) because I want to make this blog the best it can be.
So please, come on in and take a look around. I think you'll like it here.
Disclaimer: Please only partake in the act of smoking tobacco if you are of age.
Update: I’ve developed a new rating system for shisha reviews which you can find here.
Next up in the line of Al Waha Gold is a peach flavor. I will admit, given a new brand of tobacco, my first instinct is to go after the strawberry and peach flavors. I’m a sucker for it. But moving on to the review:
Aroma: 6 out of 10
The strength of the plain aroma coming up from the tin isn’t very strong at all. You can crack it open without gagging anyone, which is nice. An interesting note about the smell of this tobacco is that once again, this peach flavor smells just like peach rings; a smell I can never get tired of.
Flavor: 6 out of 10
The flavor isn’t very bold or overpowering at all. It’s a nice light taste for your smoke session. The translation from the aroma to the taste loses some peach flavor but not too much.
Endurance: 7 out of 10
The bowl started to burn out around an hour. Fairly decent session for just one bowl.
Overall Rating: 6.5 out of 10
Overall this isn’t the absolute greatest flavor, but if you like peach you can give this one some bonus points. It’s a pretty good flavor.
Don’t forget to check out the new rating system.
As always, any questions, comments, concerns, or if you just want to show off your hookah, drop a question or submission.
Ever since I started smoking hookah I’ve been looking for a strawberry flavor that actually tastes like strawberry. I’ve had many brands that smell amazing but taste nothing like strawberry. However a couple of months I found a brand that has the best strawberry taste I’ve had; and that brand is Al Waha Gold.
Aroma Strength: 6 out of 10
This tobacco has a somewhat strong smell to it, one that can be detected from within it’s tub after it has been unwrapped. It’s a very sweet smell and smells like actual strawberries.
Taste: 8 out of 10
As I said, this tobacco really does taste like it smells. It’s a sweet taste but can be over powering at times. When we first smoked it the sweetness was almost gagging, but once we dried out the tobacco it was fine.
Stamina: 8 out of 10
The flavor remains fairly dominant for a while. We smoked the same bowl for over an hour in a medium sized bowl before it lost its flavor and when we went to replace the head, we found that every part of the tobacco had been completely burned.
Hit Strength: 6 out of 10
The amount of smoke you can pull from this tobacco isn’t the largest, but it’s not horrible. You can get a decent amount of smoke to play with, but if you’re looking for monster clouds, this tobacco cannot deliver.
Technical Rating: 7 out of 10
Personal Rating: 9 out of 10
This tobacco gets 2 extra favorite points from me just because I love the strawberry flavor and this tobacco is the only one I’ve come across that actually tastes like strawberries. It’s my favorite flavor (as of right now) to smoke.

“Hey man just wanted you to know that you have a very nice blog, Ive been smoking for a while and was wondering if you could recommend me any good flavors. I like more fruity flavors and have grown bored of winterfresh. Thanks and great smoking, Patrick.” -Patrickqe
I got this question today and wanted to address it in a post. (Easier to tweak media and format I think.)
Anyway, this is a very common question. There are very many different fruit flavors out there, so it really depends on what fruit flavor you like best.
My personal favorite fruit flavor is strawberry (and I’m still trying to find the best one) but the best one so far is Al Fakher Strawberry.
Al Fakher offers a lot of single fruit flavors like strawberry, berry, melon, etc. They’re a good brand and are very reliable in my experience.
If it’s a fruit mix you’re after there are many, many options out there. California Dream, Passion Fruit, Fruit Cocktail are just a few. It’s hard to say specifically what’s good and what isn’t since it’s mostly a matter of opinion, so your only option is to pick up what smells good to you and try out a few flavors.
Al Waha is my favorite new brand because they’re usually cheaper in price, they are much sweeter than the other brands and (and dissimilar to other brands, like Starbuzz) the smell of the shisha itself is almost identical to the taste and smell of smoke you get. Plus they have a wide variety of fruit mixes as well as other non-conventional flavors like Chocolate and Banana Split.
If you’re not entirely tired of mint flavors you can also try an assortment of fruit and mint flavors pre-mixed. I’ve heard good things about “Lemon Mint”.
You might also try various flavors from Al Waha and Starbuzz. They have a big variety of anything from Apple Martini to a great flavor called “Purple”. (Not sure what it is but it tastes amazing)
Well I hope this answers your question. Good flavors from Al Fakher include Strawberry and Berries, Al Waha has a great Peach Apple and Passion Fruit Mix and Starbuzz has an amazing White Peach and Purple (highly suggest this one!). So just go see what you can find!
As always any questions, comments, concerns (or if you just want to show off your hookah) submit or ask!
