Fantasia - Cuban Mojito

Hookah: Mini Mya

Bowl: Phunnel

Screen/Foil: Reynolds Heavy Duty

Hose: Cobra hose

Coals: 2.5 Coconaras

Base Liquid: Water with Ice.

Appearance: Red, Juicy, and stemmy.

Smell: Smells just like it tastes, minty with fruit.

Taste: Lime, other fruits, sweet, minty.

Smoke: Thick! Nice & smooth.

Buzz: Haven’t gotten a buzz in ages.. Although my friends said it got them buzzed fast. Duration: Usually about an hour and a half.

Overall: 10/10.

Most flavorful shisha I’ve ever tasted.. I love it, and would greatly recommend it to anyone that likes fruity minty shisha.. I definitely don’t like most fantasia, so I would say this is the best of their line!

Yeah i love fantasia blueberry, probably in my top 3 favs.

Hookah: mini generic

Bowl: ceramic

Screen/Foil: screen

Hose: leather

Coals: generic quick lights

Base Liquid: Water

Appearance: Red, Juicy, and stemmy.

Smell: the smell makes your mouth water!

Taste: the taste is SUPERB. Its got more of a natural blueberry taste than i expected though. I expected it to be kinda candyish, if you know wha ti mean, but it wasnt, which is a good thing

Smoke: Nice thick clouds. Also dont have t worry about scorching it, fantasia seems imossible to scorch!

Buzz:never get buzz

Duration: well with my mini about an hour at most

Brand/Flavor:

Fantasia Pumpkin Spice

Methodology:

Me, my KM Kafae, Phunnel bowl, two layers of foil crinkled up. Three Shishaco coals + two chunks of Stargate naturals to finish off the bowl. And a windcover, which I always use to get the most heat out of my coals.

First Impressions:

Smells very pleasant out of the box. Very wet, almost watery. I don't think they added much if any coloring, it was just sort of brownish. The smell of nutmeg or some other spice seems a bit stronger than the pumpkin smell. Quite pleasant. A smooth, subtle smoke, mildly spicy, not sweet, the pumpkin is there but is subtle. Took some time to get it heated up and needed more heat than I expected. It was 20 or 25 minutes before I needed to remove one of the three coals I had on the bowl. And it wasn't long after that that I needed to put it back on. Smokes really great, nice clouds.

Because I'm still smoking it and am stalling for time so I can check the post mortem, I'll add the ingredients listed on the box.

Virginia tobacco, honey, vegetarian glycerin, preservatives, flavor, nicotine 0.5% Tar 0%

Only had a 50g box and am sad that my first two sessions with it were while I was at the height of a nasty sinus infection and so I really couldn't judge the flavor. Now that I'm better and am smoking the last of it, I wish I had more!

Post Mortem:

Smoking it as fast as I can to find out!

Okay, flavor didn't last the life of the last two chunks of coals, maybe ten minutes? Smoked it for about 50 or 55 minutes before the flavor petered out. Post mortem revealed quite a bit of juiciness at the bottom of the bowl, although the top 1/3 was baked through quite well.

Pros:

- No artificial tasting flavor, smooth, subtle, loved the spice flavor.

- Smells great out of the box.

- Nice clouds.

- Long lasting flavor.

- No buzz.

Cons:

- If you want more pumpkin flavor, you might need to eat a piece of pumpkin pie with it. Damn, I'd love a slice of pumpkin pie right now.

- If you are counting on a buzz, you'll be disappointed.

Conclusion:

Great shisha for the uninitiated or for someone who wants something besides a fruity flavor. Need to buy a larger container of this for the fall and winter, it will be a lovely shisha for the holidays!

B+

How have you been getting a bowl to last that long? Is it purely because the phunnel bowls are large enough to hold more tobacco? I seem to be unable to keep a bowl flavorful for longer than 45 minutes at most.

Phunnel bowls prevent the juices from dripping down the stem which probably has something to do with it.

Andrew claims to have smoked a single bowl of Tangiers for around 7 hours. (His GF corroborated this story.)

Ive tried alot of fantasias, im gonna do like a little collective of mini reviews real quick.

All of these were smoked out of a Mya QT with mya ceramic bowl and mya leather hose, using Fantasia natural coals

Pink lemonade: 9/10

The taste on this is spot on. Because of the citrus in it though it burned my throat, which is why it only gets a 9/10. This can be lessened by using ice water though.

Raspberry lemonade: 10/10

One of my favorite shishas. Definitely one to stay stocked up on. I greatly recomend this one.

Incredible hulk: 6/10

One of the only fantasias i didnt really like. It smells really good, but the taste just doesnt do it for me. Be worth a try if you like the drink though, the taste, as with most fantasias, is spot on.

Pina Colada: 8/10

This flavor isnt as in your face as other fantasias. Tastes like pineapple more than coconut though, which is unfortunate for me, since i love coconut.

Cotton Candy: 10/10

I usually dont really care for the non-fruity flavors, but this is one of my favorites. It tastes just like a mouthful of cotton candy. i love this stuff. Definately worth it.

Wild mango: 7/10

Another one of the fantasias that arent as in your face as the rest of them. Of course if you like mango, then definately id say give it a try.

Sweet red melon: 9/10

This reminds me of jolly ranchers. It leaves a rather wierd feeling in your throat though, which is the only downside, and why it only gets a 9.

I plan on trying all the fantasias, since they all seem to be amazing. Ill continue the mini reviews as i try new flavors

Orange sherbert: 5/10

One of the worst fantasias ive had. That said, its still not horrible. Definately gets the flavor right, theres just something about it that i cant quite pinpoint..

Raspberry KAMIKAZE: 7/10 (sorry for the mixup)

I was rather disappointed with this. It smells amazing, just like raspberry tootsie pops actually. I thought for sure this would be one of my favs, but the taste just isnt there for me. Id much rather get the raspberry lemonade than this.

Fantasia Ice Mint

Smoke: thick and smooth

Buzz: pretty good but I also don't smoke a lot so I'm not totally use to it

Ita nice by itself if you want a spearmint taste that will cool your mouth. I didn't mix it but I'm sure you easily could.
