    Hookah Coals & Heat Management

    I don't actively use them, but I have used them in the past. I even made my own for a while. I do have to say they are very cheap and the longevity is astounding. Although in my experiences they changed the flavor of the smoke. Not as badly as a quicklite but it was still there. I'd gladly recommend them however. Just be careful of them popping or splitting Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app

    Hookah Coals & Heat Management

    I prefer to use flats compared to cubes, but I would follow the general rule of 2-3 cubes in a Lotus depending on the heat output. Good to know I have some influence I don't blame you for moving on though. I like to get a new brand every once in a while. I would be remiss if I didn't. There could be a gem of a coal and I would never know it. I've also used the Ecocha. They were very good. Although for me they were too pricey.

    Hookah Coals & Heat Management

    While I despise quicklights, there is a huge market for them and almost every single beginner is going to be using these. It would be harmful to the integrity of this thread to just ignore them. That being said, I would say the best brand for quicklights is Three Kings. I have been using Starlight Natural coals for years now. They have been the most consistent for me, with just a few batches every year cracking or blacking out. Starlights have a uniform shape to each coal and produce a lot of heat. Three coals in the Lotus is pushing it. I wouldn't ever try 4 coals, foil or Lotus, as that much heat would torch the shisha. Oh, and their price can't be beat (at least locally) $3.99-$4.99 for a 72 count box. Quick lights always, ALWAYS, affect the flavor of shisha. If there is a brand that doesn't I have yet to experience them.

    Good idea! There's so many tips and tricks for us to share Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app

    I do cold water, bit of lemon juice and a vigorous shake for day to day cleaning. Maybe once a week or every other week it gets a deep clean, the same thing but with hot water, more lemon juice and maybe a brush if it needs it. The stem doesn't need to be brushed often, it's always the base that does.

    You're better than me. I won't wash it completely after every session if I know I'm going to be smoking the same thing for a while.

    Love the mango, might just get some myself. The peach can be a bit strong by itself but delicious Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app

    It very well could have. Probably added enough of a flavor that you're familiar with that you didn't notice the shisha as much Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app

    We're only a little obsessed about hookah, I swear. Everyone has their own preference and what works for them. I smoke often so I have to stock up.

    Buying 50g packs are only handy if you are unsure if you like the flavor, like @iotterbeinbed said. If you like the flavor, simply try to get the largest that the shisha comes in and that you can afford, i.e. 250g packs. You'll be saving money in the long run. 50g might not even last half a day

    Isn't Cardamom a spice flavor?

    Normally I would say Nakhla Mizo Mint but that has been increasingly difficult to source locally. My recent favorite would be Fumari spiced chai

    How to make shisha tobacco at home

    Welcome to the forum. I do not have any experience with using banana leaves but I do have experience with mint leaves. If it is anything like that then you could very easily follow the steps that are somewhere here in this thread or elsewhere and just swap out normal tobacco leaves with banana leaves. I would however add pieces of banana or even make a banana bowl to really make the flavor pop. I'm not really the best with this, DD would be much better to ask. Hey DD get in here!

    Mazaya - Orange with Cream Review

    Mazaya - Orange with Cream Amount Purchased: 250g How Packaged: Mazaya comes in a box, which contains a round cardboard container. In which there is a resealable bag, that has another bag inside of it similar to Nakhla. Too much packaging honestly but the resealable bag is a huge plus. First Impression Smell: Wow! This smells amazing. The perfect mix of orange and cream. Similar to the Fumari Orange Cream. Shisha Feel: Very, very moist. My fingers were down right soaked after packing this bowl. Cut evenly and with little to no stems was great. Hookah: Khalil Mamoon 1001 Nights Ice Double Bowl: Generic phunnel Foil: Reynold's Heavy Duty Wind Cover: Yes, used to regulate heat. Type of Coals and Amount: Starlight Natural Coconut, 2 coals. Clouds: The wetness of the shisha lets it smoke amazingly with thick billowing clouds. Buzz: The buzz is almost non-existent in my opinion. It contains only 0.05% Nicotine compared to Nakhla that has 0.5% Flavor: This is spot on to what it is trying to be. The orange is subtle and allows the cream to make a smooth relaxing flavor. Every hit until the last round of coals was fully flavored. Longevity: Holy cow! This shisha can last for quite a while. In my phunnel bowl it was easily able to go through 3 rounds of coals without losing flavor or volume of smoke. Overall Impression: 20/20 I believe this is one of the first flavors I have had that can get a perfect score. Everything about it was amazing. The flavor and smell were accurate with impressive clouds.
