Hookah John Flavor Saver Review

The hookah john flavor saverHookah John Flavor Saver is a neat little invention that is meant to keep you from burning your tobacco, which in turns, gives you better flavor. Hence the term, flavor saver. I have been using mine for a while now so I think its fair to do a review. I have some mixed feelings about this product, but I don’t think its bad so please keep reading.

First of all, I have modified mine a little bit, I didn’t like how the long handle kept me from being able to use my wind cover, so I bent it so that I could use them together. I’ve seen some people cut theirs off as well. But if you don’t mind not being able to use a wind cover, then you’ll be just fine. My other issue with it is that while it does prevent burning, I always have to use an extra coal to get the flavor and clouds that I want...

Tangiers Orange Soda Shisha Review

tangiers orange sodaThis is my first review of the highly acclaimed Tangiers hookah tobacco. While I have smoked it several times in the past, I haven’t reviewed it here yet. First up is Tangiers Orange Soda, from the birquq line. For those who may not know, Tangiers comes in a handful of lines, varying in nicotine content. I have the lowest one, called birquq.

The smell of this is insane, it smells exactly like Fanta orange soda. Surprisingly enough it doesn’t smell much like chemicals, which you would think a soda flavor would. I packed this nice and dense in my harmony phunnel bowl with the kaloud lotus and 3 titanium coals. Tangiers requires a different packing style than most other brands, so if you’re new to this, look up a few tutorials on youtube before hand, it’ll save you the trouble =)

The taste o...

Haze Frozen Lakes Shisha Review

haze frozen lakes shisha reviewI have been really into Haze Tobacco lately, and I picked up two of their most recent new flavors, one of which is Frozen Lakes. I’ve heard so many good things about it I had to try it. Simply put, it’s Haze’s take on the classic watermelon freeze type flavor, and they have hit this one out of the park. The smell is very fruity and very sweet watermelon with a hint of tart raspberry in the background. And then you get a small bit of coolness from menthol. Its a really refreshing flavor and I highly suggest it.

I like to pack it in my tangiers small bowl with 3 Titanium coals. Haze can take a lot of heat so dont be afraid to throw on an extra coal to get more flavor out of it. The flavor is, quite literally, mouth watering. Its very juicy and sweet and delicious...

Starbuzz White Chai Shisha Review

starbuzz white chai reviewDespite its name, Starbuzz White Chai is actually a spiced peach flavor. The name kind of bothers me because its not really accurate at all, but the flavor is decent so I suppose I can let it slide. The cut is regular Starbuzz, choppy and sticky with juice. It smells like peach and vanilla with a slight spiced note, too light to tell what spices though.

The clouds are good. My issue is with the flavor strength, I went through almost the entire pack just trying to get it to smoke well, I always got good clouds, no burning, but it just tasted like nothing. Finally, this session, its way better. But still very light, especially for being in the “Bold” Starbuzz line. I get some peach notes and some vanilla too, and a little bit of spice, but overall its a very mellow smoke...

Fumari French Vanilla Shisha Review

Ffumari french vanilla shisha reviewumari French Vanilla is a very basic flavor, but it can’t hurt to do a review anyway, right? Good! haha I usually use vanilla flavors for mixing, but since this is a review I decided to smoke it on its own. The cut is extremely juicy, like all Fumari, and the leaves are finely chopped up with almost no stems in the bag. The smell is very light, but you can pick up some sweetness and almost like a vanilla cake type smell from it. This is not like a true vanilla bean flavor though.

The clouds are amazing, and certainly wont disappoint anyone as long as you have packed your bowl correctly and used the proper amount of heat. 2-3 natural coconut coals on a small to medium sized bowl will work perfectly. The taste is very mild, its sweet and again, its like cake, but its very very light...

Haze Blazen Blue Shisha Review

haze blazen blue shisha reviewHey whats up guys?! I hope everyone has had a great first month of 2015, I know I have! I’m back with a review of Haze Blazen Blue, I got a small sample bag from a friend and I figured why not review it. This is more of a first impressions for me because I only have enough for one bowl, so keep in mind that I haven’t fully tested this flavor like I normally would.

The cut is typical haze, medium to large cut with lots of juice. The smell on this is going to be very similar to Starbuzz blue mist, a strong blueberry flavor with a little bit of cooling effect. Basically, its a blueberry mint flavor. The clouds are huge, much like any other Haze flavor, it can take a lot of heat so don’t be afraid to add an extra coal on there if you are cloud chasing...

Starbuzz Watermelon Freeze Shisha Review

starbuzz watermelon freeze reviewStarbuzz Watermelon Freeze is an oldie but goodie for me, it was one of my favorite flavors when I first got into hookah, and even though I haven’t had it in years, I’m revisiting it recently because I got some from a friend. Its pretty much what it sounds like, watermelon with a nice cooling effect. Its not mint, its just menthol, so if you aren’t a fan of the taste of mint, this one will be fine for you. It smells like a nice mix between a candy watermelon and a fresh ripe watermelon, with a touch of menthol. Its not overwhelmingly cold so this flavor should be okay for people who aren’t into mint or menthol as well.

My set up for this review is a tangiers pico bowl, 2 coco mazaya coals, and my KM trimetal hookah...

Al Fakher Guava Shisha Review

I amAl Fakher Guava Review a huge fan of guava flavors, they are typically very sweet and fruity. Al Fakher Guava is no different, and it’s one of my favorites too. AF is a good beginner tobacco because its light on nicotine, easy to pack and in general a very good brand. Guava is one of their staple flavors and certainly worth trying. It smells like a nice sweet and tropical fruit that you will recognize right out of the package. The cut is choppy and dyed dark red, like most Al Fakher.

I loaded this up in my Tangiers pico bowl with 2 coco mazaya coals and used my KM Trimetal hookah. I also tend to use a windcover on and off to manage heat. You should be able to get good clouds with no problem, just pack it right and use the right amount of heat. 2 or 3 coals will work great depending on the size of your bowl.

Starbuzz Maximus Hookah Hose Review

starbuzz maximus hookah hose reviewIt’s always a good idea to have a nice washable hose on hand, I’m a huge fan of the Fancy Hose, or Nuhose, its cheap, simple, easy to clean, and they work. But they don’t look that nice, regardless of how well they perform. I wanted something that looked nicer for when I do video reviews, and I originally got a yellow wrapped Nammor hose, which works great and everything, but I honestly hate how but the heel end of the hose is, it sticks out of my hookah a good 10 inches or so and it bothers me. So I went ahead and spent the money on a Starbuzz Maximus hose. It costs a pretty penny compared to my $6 fancy hoses, but it seemed good enough.

Once I got it I tested it out for about a month before I did a review on it...

Fantasia Gingerbread Shisha Review

fantasia gingerbread shisha reviewWhen I was choosing what I wanted to review for this winter season, I decided to get some wintery type flavors. One of them included Fantasia Gingerbread, which I have never tried before but have heard a few good things about. Fantasia isn’t one of my go to brands, but they do have a few flavors that I enjoy from time to time. This one smells like cookies when you open it, not quite gingerbread, but more of a sweet freshly baked cookie type smell. It reminds me slightly of snickerdoodle cookies because it has a little bit of a cinnamon note to it.

My set up for this review was an alien mini phunnel bowl(awesome choice for a quick one round of coals session), kaloud lotus, and 3 coco mazaya coals on top of my KM Trimetal hookah. The clouds are awesome, but I did pack on the heat...
