    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.

    Fumari: Orange Cream

    Amount Purchased: 100g

    How Packaged: Shisha is packed is a small(ish) bag, the bag is resealable. High quality bag. I really like this packaging

    First Impression Smell: This is an interesting one, it starts off with a light to medium orange scent that easily transitions to a cream scent. Very reminiscent of a orange cream popsicle.

    Shisha Feel: Very moist, feels a bit chunky. The cut is small with very little to no stems.

    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: Great clouds, they are not filling the room but they are not light. They are not as big as I expected for such a juicy shisha but good nonetheless. After 30 minutes the clouds got much better.

    Buzz: I feel a very light buzz. It should be noted that I am used to higher nicotine content shisha, so that may change how I feel.

    Flavor: The flavor is on point, there is no undernote or second note. You can immediately taste the orange cream flavor, neither over powers the other.

    Longevity: First round of coals lasted for an hour, currently on a second round. Depending on how juicy this is it may last for a third round.

    Overall Impression: 19/20 This was a great flavor, the smell and taste were very accurate with great longevity. I highly recommend this flavor. If it was cheaper, it would be a go to flavor.

    Nakhla Cherry

    Amount Purchased: 250g

    How Packaged: Nakhla comes in a box, the shisha is inside of a plastic wrapping that is sealed inside of another foil lined bag. It is not resealable. Another container might be needed.

    First Impression Smell: It has a hint of cherry cough syrup with a bit of a candy smell. Hard to place what the taste will be like.

    Shisha Feel: More moist than typical Nakhla but it isn't dripping wet. It is red coloured and could stain your hands. Stems are typical of Nakhla.

    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: Thick, large clouds

    Buzz: Slight to moderate

    Flavor: In my opinion it tastes like how a cherry should taste. No hint of cough syrup, but not candy like either.

    Longevity: Roughly an hour and 20 minutes. Another round of coals can be used

    Overall Impression: 17/20 I really like this flavor. It isn't overpowering and it doesn't taste like cough syrup like other brands. It would be great to mix with other flavors.

    Nakhla Banana

    Amount Purchased: 250g

    How Packaged: Nakhla comes in a box, the shisha is inside of a plastic wrapping that is sealed inside of another foil lined bag. It is not resealable. Another container might be needed.

    First Impression Smell: Without unwrapping or opening the box you can smell this flavor. It smells very sweet, candy like. Reminds me a lot of Laffy Taffy.

    Shisha Feel: A little dry but it seems some of the molasses is at the bottom of the bag, no big issue here. Uniformly cut and small stems.

    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: Dense clouds, typical of Nakhla.

    Buzz: Low buzz

    Flavor: The taste is not as sweet as the smell but still accurate.

    Longevity: Lasted for roughly an hour an 20 minutes.

    Overall Impression: 17/20 An amazing flavor, tastes just like it should. I'll be getting this again.

    Nakhla Brandy

    Amount Purchased: 250g

    How Packaged: Nakhla comes in a box, the shisha is inside of a plastic wrapping that is sealed inside of another foil lined bag. It is not resealable. Another container might be needed.

    First Impression Smell: It smells exactly like brandy, it even has those undertones that alcohol adds to a drink. Doesn't smell strong or overpowering though. .

    Shisha Feel: Dry, but still sticky. Being from the Mix line it is wetter than traditional Nakhla, but I would consider it a dry shisha. There are stems, but they are quite short.

    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:Thick, dense clouds. What you would expect from Nakhla.

    Buzz: Moderate. It gave a decent buzz, it wasn't too strong or weak.

    Flavor: Sweeter than the smell of the shisha. The after taste and scent of the smoke was what brandy is truly like.

    Longevity: Coals died after an hour and 25 minutes. Another round of coal can be added.

    Overall Impression: 18/20 This was a great flavor, it was what I expected of it, being very accurate to the advertised flavor.

    Nakhla Orange Peach

    Amount Purchased: 250g

    How Packaged: Nakhla comes in a box, the shisha is inside of a plastic wrapping that is sealed inside of another foil lined bag. It is not resealable. Another container might be needed.

    First Impression Smell: Quite citrusy with undertones of a sweet peach(reminiscent of candy peach rings)

    Shisha Feel: Very wet, especially given the fact that Nakhla is typically a drier shisha. There are stems and they are small to large sized.

    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: Dense, large clouds. Typical of Nakhla.

    Buzz: Slight to moderate. Nakhla is an unwashed tobacco and contains more nicotine than most other shisha, be careful if you haven't smoked it before.

    Flavor: Strong. The citrus is the first thing I tasted, then an after taste of the peach. They should have lowered the strength of the orange.

    Longevity: Roughly an hour and ten minutes, a second round of coals could be added.

    Overall impression: 14/20 It was quite delicious but the orange overpowered the peach.
