Default Just Noob?

Yesterday was the first time I ever smoked hookah. I honestly have no idea why i just bought one, probably cause it looked badass. Anywho, smoked Nakhla apricot and strawberry, it was pretty decent but it had this really soapy aftertaste. Is this something associated whit Nakhla as a brand or do I just suck and they're all like that.

Apricot and strawberry are not 2 of Nakhlas strongest flavors.

Ha, shitty picks by me. Shoulda read some more reviews I guess. Any recommendations for good Nakhla flavours? The local smoke store seems keep mostly Nakhla.

I dont smoke apricot, but if you want a good strawberry, get some starbuzz. As far as Nakhla goes, their mizo line is really good, and of the normal flavors, mint, double apple, pistachio (aquired taste), these are the normal flavors that most people smoke around here.

Double apple is divine, literally.


Sweet Melon, Mizo Mint, Chocomint

If you are feeling brave they make robust floavours like Jasmine, Cardamom and Earl Grey which will knock your taste buds right out lol. In a good way (for some)

Nakhla Earl Grey is very good...stay away from the Lemon...Chocomint is well..chocomint...its good but can get to be to much.

i find the mixed fruits horrid, a lot of people like it here but it just smells and smokes bad. chocomint is one of my favorite flavors, i like the regular mint, the apples (Double apple is probably my favorite now), cinnamon is good but a little cooler/smoother than expected, sweet mellon is very good but after a few smokes of it it starts to not taste as good, get a slight overly ripe taste. i love nakhla as it is my good to brand, there is of course some that are not to great but most flavors i find at least decent

that's exactly what i thought, my first few bowls of sweet melon were awesome then after a while i just didn't wanna smoke it, even the smell turned me away from it :\ definitely an every-once-in-a-while smoke for me now. too much of a good thing i guess, cause it's still one of my favorite flavors.

but yeah welcome to the club, i started out smoking nakhla as well and to this day it's still my favorite brand. i haven't had the apricot, but strawberry isn't a very outstanding flavor. don't get me wrong it's good, but it's mediocre compared to some other amazing flavors nakhla has to offer.

you could try double apple, but it has a pretty strong anise flavor, strongly resembling black licorice. if you're into that kind of stuff i'm sure you'll love it. single apple has no anise flavor, though. i'm surprised this hasn't been suggested yet, but mandarin is another great flavor by nakhla you should try out.

Lemon is great! Orange is great! Sweet melon too! these mixed with the mint that nakhla makes is also great! fakhfakhina fruit is great according to me! chocomint too!
but earl grey and cinnamon is verys trong flavours man.. really dark and heavy flavours.. not at all the happy good-tasting summer flavours like orange and mint or lemon and mint..
el basha licorise is a very good flavour!

i found that mixing sweet mellon works well, i did 50/50 with orange and it was ok, still a bit strong, i think if i play around with it i can find a decent blend with it. for double apple i dont think the anise flavor is very strong, in fact i dont really notice it much, then again i like anise flavor (but not a fan of black licorice)


i really like earl grey but i like the tea too, its nice to mix with some cinnamon and a touch of cardamon or some citrus flavors

Double apple, lemon, grape and sometimes mixed fruits - use mint and cardomon for spice, hard to smoke straight up. AVOID cherry, strawberry, mango(unless you like carrots) and orange - had some bad experiences. Sweet melon is good but I got tired after 500 grammes ( 2 packs) it now makes me hurl.
