Molasses comes from sugarcane or sugar beets. It’s often described as liquid sugar because it’s sweet, and its primary ingredients are sucrose, glucose, and fructose. It also embodies a smoky flavor, making it perfect for shisha. Manufacturers may use dark, medium, or light molasses to create amazing shisha with the perfect taste and aroma.
How does the molasses get in my shisha?
There are several steps involved in making shisha. Making blonde-leaf tobacco involves soaking the leaves in water. Soaking leaves reduces the amount of nicotine and dulls the tobacco taste. Replacing the water until it runs clear ensures you’ve eliminated the tobacco flavor and nicotine from the leaves. Manufacturers may create different brands with varying amounts of nicotine based on their production process.
The next step involves removing the stems from the unsoaked or soaked leaves. The stems are bitter and filled with nicotine, affecting the shisha’s flavor and aroma. After removing the stems, producers chop the shisha. Some produce shisha with finely chopped leaves, while other brands use larger leaf pieces.
The final step involves combining the tobacco leaves with vegetable glycerin, flavorings, and molasses. Some manufacturers use honey instead of molasses, so you must check the ingredients when shopping for shisha. You can also use our filter tool to find traditional molasses shisha.

What do I need to start smoking shisha?
You’ll need a place to relax and enjoy your smoke sessions. Shisha sessions usually last between 45 minutes and an hour, which doesn’t include prep time. Shisha smokers need a hookah, a water pipe used to heat the shisha. A hookah setup includes a hose with a mouthpiece and a bowl to hold the shisha which gets inhaled through the hookah itself.
You’ll need hookah charcoal, metal tongs to move and rotate the charcoal while lighting it, aluminum foil, and water. You also need something to light your charcoal. You can use an electric coil burner or a freestanding electric hookah charcoal burner. You’ll need access to a three-prong outlet and a flat surface if you use a freestanding burner to light your charcoal.
