Default Anyone else dissapointed with Hookah Hookah brand sisha?

Hey whats up Im new here. My names josh I have been smoking hookah for about 2 years now. I was wondering if Anyone else dissapointed with Hookah Hookah brand sisha? I know I am. dont get me wrong it smokes well. but thats it. I bought the pumpkin pie, peanut butter, and graham cracker flavors. Needless to say no flavor, nothing. was kinda dissapointed after all the raving our local shop did about it.

Guess that teach me to stray away from al fakher.

It seems that HH is only good when it is a good batch, smoked properly. Generally, if you managed to get a nice flavorful batch, and you use a vortex bowl without overpacking, and prolly like 2 coconaras w/o a windcover, it will taste great. But the smoke wont be that good. HH is hard to get good flavor and smoke from correctly, i usually just dont bother and i have like JM's or Nakhla, or SB.

I actually like HH, but I haven't tried those newer flavors yet. I have everything from 7 Spice and Clove to Root Beer, Rose, Blackberry, Lemonade, Cherry, and Mango. (I have 28 different flavors of HH.)

It's fairly forgiving, but how did you pack it? Coals, bowl, etc? I've noticed that a vortext very loosely packed right over the holes and then tamped a little so that you can see the holes with 2.5 CH nats works fairly well. Lots of flavor, good/decent smoke.

Bad batches are a bitch though. I have 100g of unsmokable HH Peach that is from a bad batch. Tastes like perfume and smells like... something that makes me want to puke.

I love HH and HF. Less coal with HH is more flavor. It burns easily so you have to be careful with it.

I've never really cared much for HH/HF...Out of all the flavors I've tried, the only one that I was able to get any real flavor out of was Rose, but I'm not a fan...I've used about half my HF Citrus Assault and still have no clue what it is supposed to taste like...

Vortex bowl packed just above the holes. HD aluminum foil. and self lighting coal in the middle. It didnt smoke harsh. just no flavor at all.

and whats this mean ? " 2.5 CH nats"

Every brand has its hits and misses. I've had more misses than hits with HH so I stay away...

I ordered a bunch of those little shisha "shots" from Saharasmoke a while back and thought they were mostly decent. A few huge misses though to be honest, like I remember smoking champagne and saying "What the hell am I smoking?"

I really liked the rose flavor, I thought it was delightful and refreshing... Vanilla was pretty good too. But I don't see myself ordering HH (maybe HF though) in the future seeing as how I'm now on a probably permanent unwashed tobacco binge.

I am a shisha smoker from the UK, about a year ago i decided i would give HH a go and bought the 40 shot box and got it shipped to the UK. I tried all there flavours and i have to say i would never, ever... ever... buy this brand again. Awful smoke, taste isnt great and just the feel of the tobacco is all wrong. Stick to the likes of AF, SB and fantasia....

Some hit or miss flavors .. I have some I REALLY LIKE! It is all in how you smoke it .. if you "go for big clouds" you will most likely end up burning it and being disappointed. It requires less heat and you get less smoke because of that but it is more flavorful.

Cheers!

I also disagree with the lack of clouds from HH/HF...I get plenty of clouds and plenty of flavor from them.

When I first started with romman years back, HH was a like a G-dsend of flavour but it's pretty "meh" to me now, esp because I go for huge buzz more than anything (in addition to flavour of course), but the flavours taste too much like candy, have no buzz and make a big mess if you're not careful. I wish nakhla made a peanut butter

HH and HF have some awesome flavors. The only thing for me is that the bowls dont last too long.
