The smoke, would indeed be 'warm'. Not 'HOT' or anything & not damaging, assuming you have a normal glass base.

Now, the smoke will have a little less thick clouds as compared to ice water but the flavor is more pronounced with warmer water.

I can't stand smoking without ice cold water though, but in theory if you wanted to, you could. But really the temp difference isn't gonna be that much / the smoke may be more harsh.

with boiling water theres a very high probabilty you will shatter your hookah vase. I personally dont think warm smoke would be very pleasant.

Warm water will equal a horrible warm taste, i have first hand experiance of this in the middle east, smoking a hookah in a desert camp in summer, with water that had been left out of a cooler.

It was horrible, so i got some ice from the cooler, cooled it down and it was fine, smoked good after that.

Hookah riding on a hot day and the water became warm. Pretty bad experience. Now I always add ice for the occasion =]

i cant imagine the steam coming off of the hot water. it would probably gather in the hose and you would end up breathing in nasty hookah water. anyone who has unintentionally tasted hookah water knows how awful it is

Yes, hookah water tastes nasty. Also, warm or hot water in a hookah = a very bad smoking session. After doing it once, you won't do it again.

hot water =/= boiling water. i thought that was just obvious. really who would put boiling water in a glass vase of a hookah they're about to smoke out of? lol come on.

i love using warm water. it makes the flavor a lot stronger. it does NOT make the smoke harsh, it just makes it... not cold. the smoke's still having the same space to expand and still being filtered through water so there won't be a drastic temperature change of the smoke.

but no i'd say it isn't a bad idea at all and is definitely worth a shot to see how you like it.

As i see everyone forgot to mention, that if it's cold outside, the hookah with hot water won't warm you up

I seen in a thread that warm water brings out the flavor more.

I say drink something warm while you smoke.

I always smoke with ice in the vase,but for some reason last night I decided to try warm water. warm water definately brings out the flavor.I for one would not put boiling water in the vase no matter what temp it is outside.It may not break,but then again why take the chance.
