Hookah Tobacco Review: Social Smoke Hookah Tobacco – Twisted

I think the problem with naming something with creative intent is that the customer has a hard time knowing what to expect. Social Smoke hookah tobacco has flavors like Voltage, Blush, Mobster, Potion 9, Sex Panther, The Edge, and Twisted, and consumers like me don’t have a clue what these taste like. Names like Pink Lemonade [...]

Hookah Culture: Rules and Etiquette

Smoking Hookah is and always will be a social experience.  As if I needed to tell you!  “Hookah Culture” is a vast umbrella that covers history, customs/traditions, etiquette, atmosphere, and more.  Today, as the wave of hookah culture is spreading to newer regions of the world, some traditions get left behind and forgotten.  Some, on [...]

Hookah Tobacco Review: Al Tawareg Hookah Tobacco – Guava Kuava

Once again, Al Tawareg has forced me to change my opinions on certain flavors of hookah tobacco.

Hookah Tobacco Review: Fantasia Hookah Tobacco – Gingerbread

It’s hard to think about gingerbread without seeing that house made out of gingerbread from the epic tale, Hansel and Gretel. To be honest, I’m not exactly sure what gingerbread tastes like. I vaguely remember how gingerbread cookies simply tasted like brown sugar with a touch of cinnamon. But it’s been years. So let’s let [...]

Shisha Tobacco Review: Social Smoke Passion Fruit

Question: How many of you actually know what a passion fruit tastes like? Probably not many of you. They’re not commonly found in many households. Their sweet guava/mango-like taste is more often used in juices or in other types of cooking such as cakes and sauces. But what you should know about Passion Fruit is [...]

Review: Smoke Skreen Hookah Water Additive

Six Coco Nara coals on the fire, two hookahs, two bowls of Fantasia Rainbow Burst, and one mystery vile of Smoke Skreen hookah water additive that has been secretly placed in one of the hookah bases by one of my friends so I wouldn’t know. One of my lab rat hookahs is an Old School [...]

Hookah Tobacco Review: Social Smoke Hookah Tobacco – Clove

My number one question has been whether or not Social Smoke Clove hookah tobacco was going to taste anything like real cloves. For those of you that do not know what cloves taste like, they have a very warm, numbingly sweet spice flavor similar to cinnamon and/or nutmeg. It’s not as hot as cinnamon but [...]
