New! Shiazo Shisha Stream Stones are now available in a 250g size! Each 250g jar will produce 10-15 hookah sessions.Invented by a group of innovative German engineers and hookah enthusiasts in response to a series of indoor hookah smoking bans in parts of Germany and other central European countries, Shiazo Shisha Steam Stones allow for a smooth, flavorful, and long lasting hookah experience without producing any actual smoke (and thus exempt from regulation).
Shiazo Shisha Steam Stones are small (and very porous) 100% natural rocks that have been injected with glycerin and other aromatic fluids via PIM (Pressure Injection Method). When heated with hookah charcoal
, the fluid inside the stones reaches boiling point temperatures and steam is produced. The resulting vapor, after being cooled by the water in the hookah base, is smooth, super thick, and intensely flavorful!
Instructions for use of Shiazo Shisha Steam Stones:
1. Shake the jar for 10 seconds to cover the surface of the stones with as much fluid as possible.
2. Using a spoon, scoop enough of the stones to fill the hookah bowl to just below the rim.
Cover the bowl taut with hookah foil
and poke many small holes in the foil with a toothpick or thumbtack.
4. Set up and use your hookah the same as you would with a normal bowl of tobacco, moving the hookah charcoal around to achieve the taste and thickness to your liking. The variegated shape of the individual rocks allows air to pass through the bowl smoothly.
Although the average size of a single Shiazo Shisha Steam Stone is larger than the average sized hole at the bottom of traditional hookah bowls, for the best results it is recommended to use a hookah bowl that has a raised center, such as a Phunnel Hookah Bowl
or a Vortex Hookah Bowl
. These types of bowls prevent the fluid and smaller stones from falling down into your hookah stem, as well as allowing the stones to “stew” in the fluids more effectively.
Shiazo Shisha Steam Stones are currently available in over 30 delicious flavors to choose from that do not contain any tobacco, nicotine, sugars, molasses, or artificial dyes.
