Huh. for some reason I never thought of that...
I am actually a traditional herbal smoker as well and I have a lot of mints that I am going to try adding to my hookah tobacco. For some reason although blending flavors was obvious to me in other areas it was never really a thought concerning hookah tobacco and other elements. There are a lot of really nice flavors that can be derived from herbs as proven by some more traditional and complex tobaccos. I was actually planning on blending a true herbal shisha tobacco using raspberry leaf rather than the sugar cane fiber we see most often.
Just as a disclaimer: I have never smoked anything illegal and do not intend to do so. Just getting rid of that thought before it arises.
