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.
I’m going to add a tab to the page for “hookah memes”. My goals is to have one of the largest sources of hookah memes out there. So if you have a meme you’d like to share, submit it. You will get credit for the submission in the form of a link to your tumblr and if you know the original source of the actual meme (if you didn’t create it yourself) please give proper credit.

I’d like to start this post by saying that I’ve been MIA for a while due to personal and financial hardships. Moving on, I’m completely in love with this flavor, if not for anything but the label.
I just absolutely love that picture, and if I can say anything, it’s that to me, the flavor is even better than the label. Irish Peach is a sweet flavor, tasting like a combination of very soft mint, peach, and a hard-to-identify sweet flavor. (We think it’s either Vanilla or Sweet Melon.)
The tobacco comes very juicy and it has a very sweet smell and taste, so if you prefer more bitter flavors, stay away from this one.
Aroma: 7 out of 10
This flavor has an aroma that just sort of wafts out of the tin. It’s not powerful but definitely dominant.
Taste: 7 out of 10
Taste can be both a good thing and a bad thing. This has a very distinct flavor which can be great if you like it, but sickening if you don’t. Tread lightly.
Stamina: 7 out of 10
It’s your pretty average tobacco that chars and burns completely before the hour is up. This rating is fairly accurate for both dried or fresh from the tin.
Flavor: 5 out of 10
The flavor on the other hand, not so much. It loses its flavor in about half the time it can smoke before being burned. The flavor is amazingly strong at first, and it’s good, but it just disappears too quick.
Smoke: 9 out of 10
If prepared correctly, this flavor just explodes with smoke, so to speak. Definitely huge volumes of smoke within the first 5 puffs while remaining cool in your throat. If you’re in to dragon clouds, give it a try.
Overall Strength: 7 out of 10
Overall Stamina: 6 out of 10
Personal Rating: 6 out of 10
I enjoyed the flavor at first, absolutely loved it, but quickly became sick of it. It’s almost too sweet but still a refreshing smoke for the first time. Honestly, the label was my favorite part of the flavor and after 100 grams of it, could probably live without it for a while.
To start, I’m not a doctor, but I’d advise you to avoid smoking while you are sick, as it could exasperate your condition. That much aside, I know hookah can be a hard thing to forgo for weeks at a time if you’re as much of an “enthusiast” as I am. Also if you’re like me, you find it rather…uncomfortable to smoke most flavors. The point of this is to tell you there’s something you can smoke with a cold or sore throat without feeling like hell-fire is shooting down your throat.
In case you haven’t guessed it yet, it’s mint. Mint flavors of all brands has a pleasant way of completely unblocking your airways and sinuses while at the same time allowing a nice, cool, almost refreshing sensation to hit the back of your throat and fill your lungs. Personally I prefer Al Fakher mint but from my experience, all brands act just the same.
A word of warning for those of you who have never smoked mint hookah before: mint is an extremely strong flavor, and is VERY overpowering. It will mask any other flavor in the bowl and, if you’re not used to it, it might be hard to hit without coughing or gagging. As someone who cannot smoke a straight mint flavor without coughing, I suggest using whatever flavor you usually use and sprinkling a small amount of mint on top. The mint is quite strong so you’ll definitely get the flavor of it, as well as the beneficial effects of clearing your nose, while still being able to smoke it like a normal flavor. If you regularly enjoy mint, disregard this little section, since you know exactly how mint acts.
Of course you don’t have to stick with mint primarily when you’re sick, but I feel like that’s one of the best times to smoke it, since the cooling sensation makes it the easiest to smoke and the flavor automatically unblocks your airways.
but a monster of a cold hit me and I can’t taste anything, not to mention anything but air or steam makes my throat scream.
Once I recover I will be reviewing flavors from Hypnosis and, drum roll please, Fantasia. Yes, I’ve finally found a shop that sells Fantasia in my area.
Alright, thanks for reading. I’m gonna go sit in a blanket and put Netflix back on.
