It's not all tobacco in a moassel/jurak/whatever mixture so how could you call it tobacco when that's not what it is fully.

If you want to be PC with the hookah and all of the terms, you would have to use the traditional Eastern terms because each one describes exactly what comprises of the mixture in question.

And to educate all of the newbies, and many of the semi-older members as well, we would need to either find the thread Hajo posted about all this stuff, or one of his many posts, or have Hajo or Lakemonster put up a sticky note containing all of this information.

haha I really misread the thread. I thought he was referring to hookah tobacco in general not specifically herbal stuff.

Buy my people call the pipe a Ghelyoon, and shishe (or shisha in Arabic) means glass, referring to the base

though since this thread is about semantics, "herbal" doesn't actually mean no tobacco as tobacco is an herb. So, we would have to call it tobacco-free molasses, light molasses, sugar molasses, or just sugar sugar
