Enjoying your favourite hookah flavour with your family and friends is an aged old tradition that dates back to the 16th century. Finding the right flavour is an exciting journey if you’re new to the hookah experience. But how exactly do you choose your favourite flavours?
With a wide range of flavours to choose from, it can feel overwhelming finding the flavour that appeals to your taste buds. Ultimately, it all boils down to personal taste and preference. However, as the experts in the shisha experience, the professionals at Euphoria have put together this comprehensive guide to set you on the right path to an enjoyable hookah experience.
Know your taste preferences
Selecting the right shisha sets the ambience for your group smoking session, but it also sets the tone for your personal experience. Your personal experience starts with understanding your palate. Start by thinking about what kinds of food and beverages you enjoy. For example, do you prefer sweet foods or savoury foods? Do you choose subtle flavours or bold and robust flavours? Start by selecting hookah flavours that are similar in taste to items you know you like.
Common flavour categories include:
- Tropical (such as tangerine melon or passion mango)
- Sweet (such passion cake or blueberry cake)
- Savoury (such as cinnamon)
- Fruity (such as grape or double apple)
- Refreshing (such as mint)
Know your hookah products
Shisha is moist, loose tobacco used in a hookah pipe. Unlike other tobacco products, shisha tobacco contains leaves as the base treated with various ingredients to add flavours. Shisha may be treated with molasses, glycerin, or honey, depending on the manufacturing preferences. Some companies use a combination of molasses, honey and glycerin.
Shisha portable vapes allow you to enjoy your favourite hookah on the go. Granted, it’s not the same unique social experience you’d enjoy around your hookah, but it will do in a pinch!
Hookah flavour saver
As you experience your hookah, you’ll notice that the flavour degrades the longer you smoke it. For longer smoke sessions, you should consider adding a hookah flavour saver. This simple coil device fits between your shisha and the coals for a full-bodied flavour that lasts the entirety of your hookah session. Best of all, flavour savers eliminate any foul taste towards the end of your session.
Ask a professional or research online
The internet is also full of product information that can prove very useful in selecting new shisha tobacco products. With a bit of browsing, you can search through different tastes to narrow down your search. However, this can prove overwhelming for new smokers with so many choices.
If you are new to shisha or want to expand your flavour collection, stop by a local tobacco shop to ask for suggestions. At Euphoria UAE, our hookah experts can tell you what’s popular, and they can even point you in the right direction based on your tastes.
Keep an open mind
Once you figure out your general taste preferences, don’t be afraid to smoke outside of the box flavours. At your next hookah session, consider branching out and trying new flavours. We suggest adding one “wild” card flavour to your rotation. This allows your group to try something new. You just might be surprised at what you end up liking!
It’s always good to try something new. While having a “go-to” flavour or two is excellent, you don’t want to get stuck in a flavour rut. There are limitless possibilities and combinations of flavours you can try. In fact, this wide range of flavours gives hookah its allure. If you stick with these simple tips, you will be well on your path to selecting an excellent hookah flavour and broadening your hookah horizons.
