    Favorite flavors

    Its good, I've had it once and if you already like af rose then you should enjoy that as well Af cardamom is great too. Haven't had that in a good while, I have gum mastic by af here as well and that's another solid one. Its pretty obvious but these days I love my nakhla double apple, I have almost 2 kilos at a time these days lmao. I always try to keep at least a 250g pack of orange and blueberry by af most of the time as well

    Well I'm.giving this Tangier's static starlight a try, its the second bowl I've had so far and both today. I like it though, for me it's a pretty mellow flavor but that works out for me because its not too sweet and its a little bit sour, I forgot what these flavors are supposed to be. These hoses need washed and these aren't award winning sessions so I'm not entirely sure what I'm tasting, watermelon and grape? Its a solid flavor I'm liking it quite a bit so far

    Today I'm smoking a 50/50 of AF DA and starbuzz Indian spiced apple. I probably forgot to mention I picked it up, its alright on its own, better in a mix

    I agree with that, using the lotus has always brought out more anise flavor whenever I smoked any double Apple flavor. I pretty much smoke it with the unglazed and lotus exclusively now

    I haven't posted much lately, had a week vacation and enjoyed the heck out of it. I haven't posted a status on the unglazed bowl with all the runs on da so here it is. The evolution is noticeable, it's a really solid bowl if a bit tricky for me to handle compared to a normal Egyptian. Its a really slow process but that bowl is starting to soak in some solid undertones, I'm smoking AF DA out of a normal Egyptian that is running stronger than my run out of the unglazed earlier, and the unglazed though packed weak, had more of a solid flavor. Its hard to describe. Also is it just me or did AF revamp their standard DA? This stuff seems a lot more mellow in the black licorice flavor and much sweeter. Its not a super mighty black licourice overdose like I remember. But still good, I kinda recently got sucked into game of thrones so I've been binging that lately. Hope everyone is doing good though, I lurk around the forums here and there even if I don't always post lol

    I got a stupid big order in the other day, a kilo and a half of nak da (like usual) but I got some AF double apple this time a 250g pack of it, gum mint, and orange mint, and then a 250 pack of Tangier's birquq k peach, foreplay, and static starlight which is new to me. as well as 10k pack of titaniums

    I had some DA in the sandstorm but as it died down I got pretty eager for another bowl so I loaded up the shallow egyptian with more DA which I'm smoking now. There's a lot of stuff that's piled on my to try list but honestly I've come to a point where I'm a pretty happy clam as long as I have nakhla DA. When I'm smoking something other than DA now I'm usually wishing it was DA.

    Yeah I just visited a hole in the wall place Puerto Rican restaurant where they don't speak English and the menu is in Spanish, food was fantastic. I use the lotus most of the time these days. I'm just lazy

    Funny thing is I never actually ate there, from everyone I hear outside of people who aren't locals that place is just alright, I've even heard people say its just good for the atmosphere, but I can't say anything on them other than they gotta at least be decent, but just best in mind I'm one of those guys who eats out at the hole in the wall places, the good thing here is you can always find really decent food anywhere in the city, its rare to find anything that isn't good so you're kinda good with wherever you go. Also just loaded some DA in the sandstorm and lotus, watching initial D with the baby brother

    Well, I don't know why some people eat pizza with a knife and fork here, I don't, deep dish is pretty legit so long as you get it from the right places, there's certain places here that are just overrated and aren't a whole lot to write home about. I'm not the biggest fan of it though, but Chicago style hot dogs and beef sandwiches all the way

    I almost considered the hydra bowl but I only really wanted an unglazed for DA. But I'm glad you're really enjoying it, the concept of that bowl is really cool.

    I'm american, I call it a hookah because we call the tobacco shisha here, its easier to call that specific type of tobacco shisha for me because so many people here smoke so many different types of tobacco here, especially cigarettes, most people in american get confused if you just say tobacco, and if I were to call the tobacco and the pipe itself by the same word when talking to others it would be confusing as well, that's the only real reason why I call the pipe a hookah, its commonly known as the pipe you guys call a shisha or narguile, its synonymous with the average american and easily understood that's all. I didn't know the pipe was called a shisha as well, kind of interesting. BTW, loving that sandstorm bowl, smoked out of it 3-4 times tonight and may again in a bit

    So for those of you who remember how much I loved the oblivion shika bowl, the same goes for this sandstorm bowl, its actually better, the dimensions on this are freaking great, the spire on my old was was ridiculously thick and this spire is very thin, its also really recessed. So it almost looks like one of those jurak bowls. This will take some dense packing nakhla like a champ. Trying it for the first time now with the lotus and its smoking great, just could of used more tobacco. I seasoned it with the da juice before packing it as well since the DA was really fresh and had some juice. I can't wait to see how the flavor will evolve over time

    Hey its alright, the holidays can be really hectic and sometimes its tough to get into the spirit, I get ya. Also, for the most part I loved the glazed version being the oblivion, in hindsight I think the bowl I had was a lemon, its kind of hard for me to articulate why it was but I can say that with the way the glazing and clay looked it made sense as to why it chipped so bad, but up until that point that bowl was a monster

    I ordered 2 kilos of nakhla DA, got a shika sandstorm bowl to try out using it as a DA only bowl and see how it goes, and some cleaning brushes and purge balls. I wanted the leather km hose as well but H-S didn't have it and I didn't want to make a second order on another site, hence why I went with the sandstorm bowl for an unglazed. However that bowl really should be fine

    Hey guys, been busy with work these days. I'm officially out of double apple though so I'll need to order another couple of kilos of that lmao, the Tangier's is almost all gone too, just have a bowl or two of peach iced tea left but I have a hefty amount of AF for awhile so its whatever

    DudeWhere'sMyHookah reviews!

    I started catching up on these, that Russian tea interests me but worries me at the same time, since I've actually had prince of grey and personally didn't like it. But I mean, prince of grey is pretty much a perfect Earl grey flavor, I just don't like that tea at all. I like really dark rich traditional tea and earl grey has a really bitter citrus. If this red tea is more of a Kashmir then I'd like it, but if its bitter in the wrong kind of way I won't, do you get what I mean by that? Lol, I can't articulate this very well. As for the 5 candy flavor video, man, I don't think I could ever smoke either of those SS flavors, I personally can't stand things that are too sweet or sour, especially with how that blur raspberry sounds, yuck, I really tried to like nakhla mizo raspberry but it just didn't sit with me right. I do kind of want to try maraschino cherry just for kicks since it's Tangier's, i didnt even consider the lay factor that might be involved, really funny. I do love foreplay though, freaking awesome flavor. That stuff is hard to find

    So you're basically in sub management on two different full time jobs but moving to a carpenters apprenticeship is going to make you more than both put together? Part of me is surprised and part of me isn't, I've wanted to get into management at my current job since I started here a year and a half ago, but I'm steering away from that since, coincidentally, I've seen apprenticeships going for crazy rates like that. I mean here an apprentice welder makes like what, $26 an hour? With all the same benefits you've mentioned. Shits crazy. Sorry to hear the relationship didn't end well, especially after a 4 year span, I know what you mean when you say you don't like having companies jerk you around, I'm still stuck at part time and they are fully aware how much I've been wanting to at least get a full time position there, but I just worked a 48 hour week with holiday bonus and Sunday bonus so obviously they aren't stingy about giving me the cash when they need me. Prospecting is hard man, I wish you all the best with that apprenticeship. I'm going to try to get into one during springtime next year since that's their openings. All the best man, you deserve some downtime after 4 months with no days off and those crazy hours, I doubt I could put in that much work lmao

    Hey guys, I have been busy with work all week so I've just been tired and haven't been around these forums lately, mostly been smoking double apple and Tangier's, right now I have the alien and lotus loaded with k peach since I finally have a day off

    I'll keep it mind when that time rolls around if HS doesn't stock it before then. I'll check out the review in a bit as well

    That Russian tea sounds right up my.alley dude, haven't considered trying lavoo or heard anything about it but I might give that a shot my next order, I need to get more double apple in soon anyway, as for me I'm smoking a mix I've been really enjoying lately, double apple with gum cinnamon by AF. I need to use like gum/cinnamon next time but its a really nice combo. I hope everyone's getting stocked up for the upcoming winter.

    That would make sense, the weather here has been extremely inconsistent lately, there's not much I can do about it but wait it out, it won't hurt to hold off on the Tangier's I still have plenty of AF and nak DA lmao

    I'm smoking more DA right now as I had been lately, been having some rough sessions with Tangier's but still decent, kind of rusty with it especially since I'm less experienced with noir.
