Default what do you like to smell / drink with your smoke? (what pairs well?)

Since smell is very closely related to taste, i was just wondering what kind of ambiance you like to pair with your smoking, candles incense, or even what kind of drinks go great/ not so great with what flavor. im simple bigelow green mint tea with white grape AF. share also my thoughts are alcohol and smoking never really great together.

odd related story, i thought once i got a crap mix of some flavor or another, i forgot... i literally couldn't taste ANYTHING
turns out it had something to do with my cold nasal spray i used at the time and i couldn't smell anything for a short time.. maybe tmi...

Regardless of what I smoke, I almost always drink tea with it. Whether it's iced or freshly brewed, a nice cup/glass of tea goes well with any flavor. I only smoke fruity flavors though so that may have something to do with it. I like Iced Green Tea (not a big fan of it hot) or any kind of hot Earl Grey, English Breakfast Tea, any kind Fruity Black Tea, and of course Iced Black Tea.

As for smell, I mostly smoke outside around 8-9 so I like that nice Kentucky evening smell and of course the smell of my Shisha.

I agree on the alcohol part, also. Not a big fan of drinking & smoking.

I enjoy the aroma of the smoke by itself. Since I predominantly smoke outside the evening air is refreshing. I usually drink water during my sessions. It keeps me hydrated, but doesn't take away from the flavor of the smoke.

I like to have some turkish coffee and plenty of water.

Mint tea is very good as well, but I just dont have any here.

yup ^^ the aroma of the smoke is fine with me as long as the room im in doesnt stink to begin with... and i also usualy just have water or some type of iced tea with my sessions. i usually dont drink anything warm cause it puts me to sleep even if its coffee, and hookah is relaxing in its self so i dont need to pass out and burn my house down.. but yea a glass of water and im good to go.

Peshawari ka'wa which is basically green yasmin tea with cardamons, no milk and lots of sugar.

Usually, I drink black tea (lipton) while smoking, and I've noticed that certain kinds of coffee ruin the taste of my shisha.

usually just water, or occassionally fuze fruit juice stuff
btw if you want to enhance the flavor, for some reason,
if your mouth is reallly dry, you can taste it wayyy more
so try drying your tongue on your shirt and then smoke.

This may sound odd here goes a little story:
I was a t a friends house and he made some amaizing chocolate brownies. With the brownies we packed a bowl of JM's tangerine. The mix of the sweet tangerine and the brownies was amaizing!!!! I recommend trying it! (if you can be bothered to get some brownies lol)

i used to drink a lot of iced tea (sweet) but lately have cut back cause i would get too much caffeine (and now that i drink half a gallon of pepermint green tea when i blow glass which is almost daily now, i am getting probably enough).

lately ive just been drinking lemonade or limeade (the simply brand) or min. made fruit punch. some times a pepsi throwback (stocked up on that since they are not bringing it back) or a sprite but only once in a while. i do enjoy a woodchuck hard cider but it doesnt match with some flavors but does better than the juices.

sun tea, coffee (with the right shisha tobacco), and diet coke go great with smoking.

Tea and coffee are the best choices.

Tea can be green or red. You can put mint or meramiye leaves in it.

Coffee can be a good Italian espresso and if you something exotic a Turkish coffee or Arabic coffee. With cardamom of course and without sugar.

I think a lot of people said it before but it is good to remark it: do not mix narguile with booze. Does not compute.

I work over-night so when I get home in the morning from work say around 7am I like to chill with some AF grenedine and hot green tea+honey. I am waiting on some Horchata shisha to get here, and when it does I am going to be drinking horchata with it!

Usually something that is very refreshing, some juices with ice etc. But my favorite one is home made Frappucino :] Many of you seems to drink diffrent kinds of tea. Gonna have to check it.

Water or tea depending on the flavor, although last nite I had Leininkugals Berry Weiss with Mizo Watermelon...quite tasty, another favorite is Blue Moon with JM's Tangerine.
