The Best Winter Shisha Flavors in 2023
We haven't had any snow in Central Texas this year...yet? We usually get ice, sadly. When we do get snow it’s a treat! Snow or not, winter weather still gets us rotating our shisha shelves to bring our favorite cold weather flavors up to the front. These shisha flavors are almost always brought to the front to help cure the winter blues no matter where you are!
Social Smoke Horchata Cajeta
Cinnamon spice and everything nice! If you haven’t had a horchata before then this may be a flavor you should definitely try. Social Smoke Horchata Cajeta is spot-on with its creamy cinnamon, caramel spice blend. Horchata is a chilled drink in warm weather and a delicious hot drink in colder months, and it makes for a tasty shisha treat.
Trifecta Earl Grey
If you’re a tea drinker then you probably understand how great a cup of earl grey can be. Perfect for fall and winter, Trifecta Earl Grey delivers! You would think that a shisha based on a tea would be light and airy however this one is not that.
Being a dark-leaf tobacco blend you’ll get a little more buzz with a bold complexity of flavor. Traditionally earl grey tea is intended to be consumed “dark”, or without milk. That’s exactly what to expect from this flavor; earthy tea, bergamot, and hints of citrus. Trifecta Earl Grey is great on its own or enhanced with your favorite citrus shisha - we recommend Trifecta Pulp Friction for mixing.
Azure Apple Cider
Who hasn’t had a comforting cup of apple cider on a cold day? Azure Apple Cider tastes and smells like autumn but it's a tried-and-true shisha flavor that carries us through to spring! It’s one of the best flavor translations as a shisha with its warm notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and all-spice blended together with a green apple undertone.
Depending on your taste and buzz-likeness, Apple Cider comes in both the Gold and Black lines from Azure. If you go with the Black Line Apple Cider you’ll get more of an earthy, tobacco vibe.
Starbuzz Holiday Mix
Although hard to pin down exactly what is in this mix, Starbuzz Holiday Mix is one of the first choices we go to for an post-summer shisha flavor. There’s a depth of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla pulling along notes of the slightest amount of spiced banana bread for a unique sweetness.
Fumari Spiced Chai
This is one of the all-time favorite flavors for us and many hookah smokers alike. Fumari Spiced Chai tastes and smells like coziness. It’s a sweet mix of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and all-spice that’s blended with delicious chai tea; and there’s a nice creaminess underneath.
Eternal Smoke Milkin' Cookies
There’s something different about cozy desserts during the colder months. Eternal Smoke Milkin’ Cookies is one of their most popular flavors and it fits perfectly on this list of winter shisha flavors. Just like a fresh match of cookies right out of the oven, Milkin’ Cookies delivers a sweet treat for your hookah bowls with the taste of buttery, sugar cookie and a creaminess of vanilla.
Shisha Kartel Money Madness
You don’t have to be a coffee lover to enjoy this unique shisha blend! Shisha Kartel Money Madness is a cozy option for your winter hookah sessions just as much as apple cider, horchata, and hot chocolate. You can expect a rich, bold mocha flavor topped with sweet marshmallows that add a smooth creaminess to the mix.
There are a lot of fantastic pumpkin shisha flavors but Tangiers Pumpkin earned its spot on this list because of how deliciously true-to-flavor and creamy deliciousness it smokes as a shisha. With each puff you'll get the spices and aroma of a freshly baked pumpkin pie fresh out of the oven. This is a lightly sweet pumpkin shisha. It’s great to smoke on its own however it does serve as a great base for creative mixes with vanilla, clove or other creamy shishas.
