Romman Summer Crisp - The Cure for the Summertime Blues?

With the summer season approaching, it got me thinking about the perfect Summer Shisha.  Naturally, the only summertime favorite that came to mind was Summer Crisp from Romman Shisha Tobacco.

Summer Crisp was one of 5 new Romman flavors we launched in February of last year. To be honest, while we were enthusiastic and happy about the taste, smoke thickness, and length of flavor, we were unsure of how it would be received. Initial skepticism was inevitable.  "A cucumber flavored shisha tobacco? Gross!" Yes, we got a lot of that at first, and our response was always "don't knock it till you try it."  You have to get the image of the Wendy's salad bar out of your head and think of a cool, wet, very subtle green melon flavor with just the tiniest refreshing hint of mint.  Think of sitting in a green pasture in breezy, 76 degree weather while drinking iced water with a lemon wedge.  There you have Summer Crisp!

Fun Cucumber Facts:

-While often misclassified as a vegetable due to their association with salad greens, cucumbers are in fact fruits of the gourd family Cucurbitaceae, which includes pumpkins and watermelons.

-Cucumbers have one of the highest water content of any fruit, hence the term "cool as a cucumber."

-In the summer of 2007, Pepsi launched a cucumber-flavored soda in Japan called Pepsi Ice Cucumber.  It quickly sold out, and later became a hot collectors item on eBay.

Now don’t just take my word for it.  Here are some reviews of Romman Summer Crisp that folks have left on our website:

"Summer Crisp is definitely a welcome change from all the sweet stuff. It does actually taste like cucumbers...thick smoke, long lasting flavor"  -Mr Joshua
"The BEST shisha ever.  It tastes like you're somehow smoking cucumber-melon salad. I even got my mother to smoke it."  -kirstencanfly
"Amazing flavor...the smoke is very thick, and taste great: The smell of this stuff is intoxicating, some kind of candy I cant quite put a finger on, but like the name states, it reminds of the good days of summer. The tobacco itself is very high quality, slightly finer than AF and far less stems, although I love both brands equally, I've become a fan of Romman from the very first bowl!" -Rane
"Had to try it - cucumber flavored shisha piqued my curiosity! Actually thought it was more of a melon/mint/maybe lemon blend - at least until I tried to duplicate the flavor after running out...and I can't even come close :(  Whats the secret ingredient, Romman people ?!"  -Judy H
We're not telling, Judy :)

  • This sounds to me like a really nice variety of shisha.  I'm going to have to buy some cheap shisha like this and smoke it once I'm back in Colorado and can use my hookah pipe again.
  • Cucumber is great any time. Another great tip, that has become even more popular along my campus (St. Cloud State University) is cucumber water in the base and having a nice mint flavored shisha to smoke. Fill up your base with the right amount of water (for your particular hookah) and cut a few (about ten or so) thin slices of cucumber and put them in the base along with the water. Leave the base in the fridge, overnight, so the cucumber can infuse with the water and it get a nice "crisp" taste. Then, depending on your mood, you can put cucumber shisha in your bowl, or have something light (popular flavors up here are grape and mint or lemon and mint) and enjoy smoking thsi very cooling round of hookah!
  • Received my order last week ,everything arrived in good condition except one one pacgage of shisha had a hole and leaked a bit ... Chocolate mint ...mmmmm
    tried the herbal shisha excellent light flavour - blueberry.. the smoke disippates like your breath does on a cold winter morning - very cool.
    Now can't decide on which multiple hose (3 or 4) hookah to order next
    Excellent shipping time to canada 6 days
  • Oh my gosh! Cucumber flavored shisha sounds so interesting and delicious. I love cucumbers... I love shisha... I think I'll love this product!
  • Short and sweet: It's a delicious flavor.
    Extra two-cents: If you don't care for it right away, give it a chance. It's certainly unique and great. It also goes great with a little Romman Mint.
  • First time I heard about a Cucumber flavoured shisha was 2 or 3 years ago with Fakhur's Cucumber - always wanted to get my hands on it.
