    Trying nakhla coffee, think it might be a pretty old pack unfortunately. This should probably be one of the only batches like this though if I had to guess, everything else I got should be I'm circulation a lot more Yeah this coffee is expired, hardly getting any flavor or smoke and I have it set up the same as I always do with nakhla, its supposed to be really strong too, oh well I guess, I took the risk with HS so its on me

    Placed a pretty big order the other night, 250 grams each of nakhla double apple, ice raspberry, orange peach, coffee, and two of those for ice apple, then the same size of al fakher blueberry mint and orange mint. Then two 50g packs each of nakhla grape, cinnamon, sweet melon, and AF double apple, I was almost going to get the 10k box of titaniums but was a bit out of the budget this time around so I got another 3k pack, still half a little under half of the one I have and half a box of cocourth cubes so I'm not worried, and three nuhoses

    Smoking the last of my alchemist blend double apple, finished my alpine mint the other night, I'd have to try more flavors but so far I think it's probably one of the better brands, for me anyways, not so much a game changer but id smoke this over most other tobamels, or however you spell that.

    Tried mizo guava again since I still had it stored away, figured I'd go with the super dense donut pack that I've been using for nakhla lately to see if it helps, it did. Still not super in love with it but it is a good guava

    I haven't even thought about what might be in that paste, granted I never felt like trying it either. There's a video on hookahboss's channel where he talks to a doctor about the possible effects of actual hookah tobacco, yeah we know more about it but not as much as we should, I think he said the main thing to watch out for is carbon monoxide. I don't like the idea of alternatives because I just don't think they work well. I've tried steam stones, hydro herbal and I've messed with vaping for a bit, flavors aren't very good IMO and weak, especially with vape stuff. Anytime someone would rave about a flavor and I'd try it I saw nothing worth writing home about and of course there's the vapor tongue, which kind of just ruins it for me. Personally I tend to go for tobaccos that are molasses based and without glycerin or none at all just because it irritates my sinuses and I feel like you get less flavor with those blends. So that just puts shisha alternatives and vaping out of anything I'd wanna venture further into

    Eric is a really interesting guy, I've watched his interviews a few times myself, it would be really cool to talk to him

    Wow are you serious? I was really excited to try it. All the reviews rave about it but I guess you have to take in their pallets, I don't usually like the same stuff most reviewers do. I think I'll just take your word for it and go for lemon mint instead if I try pure. I mean I trust your judgement since I really enjoyed that foreplay on the peach, and funny enough I'm finishing up my nakhla ice apple, I just love this flavor so much and have been favoring it over the flavors I got from alchemist just because this bright flavor is good any time of the day, I'm always in the mood for it. Not always wanting a menthol kick in the teeth from alpine mint or the double apple, the double apple is stuff I like to end the day with actually

    H-S screwed me on a mazaya order of half a kilo of mixed boxes. All were expired in 2012 or 2013. They haven't got my money since. lol understandable. Did you get that cinnamon from alex yet? That's messed up, did they at least refund you? And yeah I did get my cinnamon, Alex was lucky too because it was another one in the old packaging but managed to be alright and not expired. I haven't ordered from hookah-shisha at all lately just because most sites have better prices and more of what I want anyways. No I didn't even bother with it. It was like 20 with shipping. It takes a week for anything I order to get here from them anyway. That's why I stick with 5star and sometimes hj. He just has so little stock. That's good in the sense of things not going bad but at the same time I want variety From where I'm at H-S ships fasted to me, its three days where 5star and HJ takes 5. I like 5star's variety but at the same time it seems best to purchase what's most commonly sold so you get fresh stock

    I might do it soon with alchemist I have like a bowl and a mix left. I haven't smoked since my review since I'm trying to savor it. I wish 5star stocked it but I might just have to bite the bullet and make a hookahjohn order I'd rather order from john at this point after the issues I've had with 5star anyways

    Smoking some nakhla ice apple, been smoking it a bit more often than alchemist blend, I just really like this crisp clean green apple flavor. Probably gonna try throwing some mint into double apple later, both alchemist, haven't bothered trying yet for some reason

    Are those cheaper coals out there any good? The only stuff I've tried that slightly on the cheaper side was coconaras, mazayas, and cocourth cubes. I don't like the naras or mazayas myself, cocourths were decent but I'd probably like the flats a lot more. Other than that I haven't had much experience with the others. I just like titanium's so much lol I like them but I use a lotus. on foil some of the cheaper ones like leonara can be a pain I really should just fork up the cash for a lotus honestly, I've wanted to try it for awhile

    Its funny with how you mentioned you had a little bit of trouble packing the stout like before as I'm having a bit of trouble myself, do you pack it the same way with the haze semi dense pack or what?

    Thanks for watching. That melon is one of my favorites the video doesn't do it justice it was fantastic. I'm not sure I haven't used titanium on alchemist and the coals I was using are significantly lower heat output, the bowl lasted just shy of 2 hours and took 5 coals the clouds and flavor was less pronounced but it was still tasty. I try to get the biggest clouds with each tobacco lol I'm not a cloud chaser but I don't feel satisfaction unless I pull I certain amount. Alchemist takes heat like a champ too which helps I'm not a cloud chaser either but I also like that satisfying feeling of the dense thick smoke, plus the flavor always comes through that much more anyway. I tried the denser pack out of the alien, after three titanium's were done I pulled the foil and there was still some unused tobacco, I even used a wind cover at the end, so it'll probably go longer with these as well. Anyways I'm smoking some alpine mint, awesome stuff, haven't had a straight mint in awhile. I love alchemist blend so far. Also tried that ice apple earlier and its fantastic too You're 100 percent right you get more flavor and such a satisfied feeling like yeah I did this with my own two hands and my lungs. Haha Glad you're enjoying it I have alpine mint to review sometime soon myself perhaps tonight I'll open it. Ice Apple for life I swear by it For real lol, that's one of the things that keeps hookah interesting always trying to make it work just right and trying new things, with the ice apple I did used a ghosted hose but it was still great, gonna wash it out later to get the full flavor, but this whole package was just great, I didn't think I'd like a green apple flavor but its awesome, that ice line really isn't something to sleep on. In the near future I'm gonna have to grab more of both these tobaccos. I'm also really glad that alchemist blend isn't too rough on the wallet I mean its so good but the pricing is really reasonable. And nakhla is always your best friend if you wanna save money as well

    Also Dude, I hope you do more video reviews, I liked the one you posted, makes me wanna pick up that melon stuff right now lol, it was helpful too since I wasn't sure what the best way of packing it was, and I'm glad it know it'll work well out of the alien, also you said itll easy go two rounds of coals out of an alien? Would the case be the same with titanium's instead of leos? That cloud output was nuts too, I was getting good smoke but Jesus Christ

    So my package came in, didn't get any sleep today but it worked in my favor since I got to have a couple of friends over, (I work at night so yeah) but I packed both alchemist blend double apple and alpine mint in my two hookahs for us, first impressions were really good, we all really enjoyed it and I was kind of able to just throw it in and smoke it without any trouble at all, I almost feel it's a little bit like nakhla in the sense that when it takes more heat it really bumps up the flavor, but the flavor is strong in general, just having some trouble hitting that sweet spot with heat management but I mean, it hasn't burned or anything. I thought the double apple was surprisingly good I really really like it, can't say what double apple it reminds me of though, the alpine mint reminds me of social smoke mint but on crack, without that glycerin taste to it and a more full bodied flavor

    I've been curious to try morangie by pure but that's about it, smoking some of the last foreplay on the peach, ran out of canary's so had to try some coconut coals on it, to my luck worked out just fine

    I agree but I like hookafina vanilla ice more. I don't get why af vanilla is so hyped. Tastes nothing like a cake to me and more like a coffee creamer. Smoking af watermelon mint with extra mint added and raspberry ice nakhla. Its decent and I'm still going through my first 250g pack of AF vanilla, I don't get the hype too much either, I mean its good but I can't make it an everyday smoke and I can get sick of it quick, instead of something like the straight mints or citrus mints out there, or double apple, but that's just the stuff I typically really like. I think it does taste like cake batter but I've never been the type to wanna sit there and munch on cake batter. Hopefully alchemist blend double apple is good, I ran out of nak and I was pretty bummed out about it, was finally getting it to work the way I want too. High hopes for nak ice apple as well

    That makes me a little nervous since double Apple from the stout line is in its way here, hopefully I don't get too many problems lol

    It seemed pretty wet in comparison to other brands but dry for starbuzz, I figured it would be fine and I packed it up and everything, it just wouldn't smoke though, I even let the coals sit for another 10 minutes or so and tried puffing it again, like the smoke that came out was very dry, almost non existent, and had an almost ashy texture to it, almost no flavor was coming through and it almost made me feel sick, I know it wasn't user error because I did exactly what I've always done for starbuzz and brands like it

    I think it had a 2014 sticker but I couldn't tell the exact date, I thought it might still be okay but it was just unsmokeable

    Unfortunately that pumpkin pie starbuzz flavor I got from 5star is expired too, I wasn't able to tell since as far as I know they don't actually put an expiration date on it, but it was unsmokable, no real big loss I suppose since I didn't care for how it smelled anyway, not gonna bother emailing them about it either
