Hookah-Hookah Reviews

Recommended Posts

Brand/Flavor:

Hookah-Hookah Banana

Methodology:

-5 hits/person across 10 minutes

-4 individuals in the circle

-40mm Golden coal offest holes with a ventilation hole opposite

-Foil rotated every couple hits

-22" generic 1-hose hookah filled with ice water

First Impressions:

We got the Hookah-Hookah Banana as a shot, kindly donated by one David Sokolowski. Shisha was finely cut, slightly dry and quite oily. Smell was only vaguely reminiscent of bananas.

Post Mortem:

Though we only smoked for a very short time, we already saw the spectacular shriveling of the tobacco that we soon found typical of Hookah-Hookah shisha.

Pros:

-Moderately thick smoke

Cons:

-Little to no flavor

-Any flavor it had was completely unrelated to bananas

-No buzz

Andrew's Thoughts:

This flavor was not a pleasant introduction to Hookah-Hookah shisha. In fact, there was very little about it that was pleasant. To be sure, we got some good smoke out of it, but try as we might, all we got was a vague aluminum-like taste, soon followed by what I assume was the flavor of the tobacco itself, which was remarkably similar to wild rice. In short, there is nothing remotely bananaish about Hookah-Hookah Banana, and I cannot in good conscience recommend this shisha to anyone.

Eric's Thoughts:

Any hesitations I had in trying Hookah-Hookah shisha were pretty much confirmed. Admittedly it could have been far worse, but that by no means exonerates it from its sub-par performance. The smoke was pretty thick, but there was absolutely no flavor. The shisha itself seemed rather dry, and while this could be attributed to a "bad shot", I personally consider any sample of a shisha as indicative of that flavor as produced by that brand as a whole. And to claim that the shots are somehow exempt from this scrutiny is a cop out. Bottom line is, it smelled vaguely chemically like banana upon opening, but as a smoke, it produced no flavor.

Peanut Gallery:

(Caroline) It was kind of like smoking stale banana bread. Gross.

Conclusion:

Oily and weird before, chemical and bland during, and shriveled and bizarre after, Hookah-Hookah Banana is unlikely to satisfy even the least discriminating hookah lover.

Lmao, that was funny.

I don't usually like banana flavored things..but I like the fruit.

Now I don't think I'll ever try any banana flavored tobacco..regardless the brand o.O

Brand/Flavor:

Hookah-Hookah Black label premium herbal (black berry)

Methodology:

-lasted until i finally decided i was done!!!

-came in a little shot, so only about half a bowl, and it still lasted that long!

-mya QT wit regular ceramic bowl and leather hose

- ice water in base

First Impressions:

a shop by my house had a box of sample shots, me and the guy are pretty cool, so when he offered me about 33 of them for 10 bucks i definitely jumped at the offer. Looks like black sticks, smells very good though.

Post Mortem:

Burned very evenly through

Pros:

-lasts FOREVER

-very good flavor, kind of an earthy taste to it too

- doesnt have the same health hazards as tobacco

Cons:

-after smoking for a while you can start to taste the earthiness to it

-No buzz (though i never get a buzz, even with tobacco)

Afterthought:

Apparently a lot of people dont like this stuff, i think its great though. For a herbal smoke this is definately very good. Unfortunately though i think that black label is discontinued

Brand/Flavor:

Hookah-Hookah malibu sunrise

Methodology:

-Ballerina 28in with vortex bowl

-lasted about 2 hours with just me smoking

-2 pieces of fantasia natural coals on metal grate

First Impressions:

"The Shop", a head shop by me that has a great selection of hookas and accessories has a ton of hookah hookah tobacco, all in 100 gram jars for 7 bucks a piece. So its a pretty good price. Upon opening the jar first thing i noticed was how bright and dry it was compared to other tobaccos. It smelled exactly like it was supposed to though, like cherries and coconut.

Post Mortem:

of course because it was a vortex bowl it didnt burn all the wy through, and even though i smoked it for such a long time, i still had enough that i decided to save it.

Pros:

- cheap and comes in a jar so its easy to store

- tastes pretty good for tobacco thats cheaper than al-waha

Cons:

-since it so dry its easy to scorch. Adding a few drops of water or even glycerine helps

Afterthought:

Again with the hookah hookah, apparently alot of people dont care for it. I thought it was really good though. The taste was spot on and as i said before, definately worth the price. Another one that i plan to stay stocked on.

I give it a B+

I just bought a couple tubs of it and after smoking a few different flavors have found that although it might be too finely cut and a little too dry the first time (wetted down with glycerin) it was terrific and the flavors were spot on! I am super happy with this over others.
