Re: hot water in hookah?
hot water =/= boiling water. i thought that was just obvious. really who would put boiling water in a glass vase of a hookah they're about to smoke out of? lol come on.
i love using warm water. it makes the flavor a lot stronger. it does NOT make the smoke harsh, it just makes it... not cold. the smoke's still having the same space to expand and still being filtered through water so there won't be a drastic temperature change of the smoke.
but no i'd say it isn't a bad idea at all and is definitely worth a shot to see how you like it.
