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.
but we’re only about half way through. We’ve had some great mixes, some interesting mixes, and some freaking weird ones, but all in all, it’s been a great experience.
As promised, we’ll try our best to have the results posted next Tuesday (5/15/12) and subsequent reviews of all of the flavors after that.
We’ve gotten some good flavor mixes so far so let’s keep it up till the very end!
