Re: Banana Shisha
Well, you guys pushed me to force myself to smoke this stuff last night (not that I didn't want to smoke it -- I just rarely have the desire to smoke anything non-Tangiers these days.)
It was pretty damn tasty! Definitely better than AF. My previous favorite was Layalina, but it's been so long since I've had it that I don't feel comfortable making the comparison. The flavor was somewhere between realism and candyism, very creamy, thick smoke. I mixed it with Tangiers Cinnamon, but didn't taste much other than the Banana.
My only complaint is that my lungs seem to have a strange reaction to the flavoring ingredient. About 5 seconds after I smell the tobacco, I get a very strange feeling in my lungs that makes me cough. This sensation was hardly present during smoking and never really hindered my enjoyment of the smoke, but it was there a bit. My brother didn't get this reaction upon smelling or smoking the tobacco, so maybe it's just me.
