Question Hookah and Tea... Your Opinions?

Hi All,

This last weekend I visited a hookah bar in Portland, Oregon called the Pied Cow. They had this amazing tea that I drank while during the smoking session and it made me think more about involving tea while smoking hookah. I hadn't ever tried it before.

So basically, I have two questions for you guys.
1. Do you know what kind of tea is generally used with hookah? The stuff I had was a hot tea that left a very refreshing feeling in my mouth. Almost like it made my mouth salivate when the fumes from the tea hit it. I'm guessing it was some kind of mint, but am not really sure. It also could have been something involving rose or jasmine.

2. What's your favorite kind of tea to drink while smoking hookah?

Tea and hookah go together like peanut butter and jelly. For me it depends on what I'm smoking. I like spiced chai if I'm smoking clove or cardamom or even kashmir cherry (Sidenote: Kashmir Cherry + Shiraz or Merlot= great combo). But for fruit flavors I like a nice soft green tea or oolong, let the 2 complement and blend with each other. Then theres always Earl Grey with Nakhla Earl Grey...talk about a 1,2 punch.

Cool Signature ..

OK .. for tea, it is all about preference. I like to have the "get some zzzs" before bed, mixed with a little honey.


I also like to mix some peppermint and chamomile together with honey, it makes a nice relaxing tea.

Now you got me craving tea! Going to go brew a cup of green tea with honey!

Generally I have some tea with me while smoking, usually green, but if I am in need of caffeine, then black works well. I also have a few things of herbal tea, some might go well with fruity flavors, and chai with Nakhla Pistachio is a must.

I usually have some Tazo Green Tea because it's all I have right now, aside from the pyramid tea bag Lipton I have. The pyramid Lipton is alright stuff. Just got 2 more boxes of Vanilla Caramel Truffle, really good stuff in my opinion

I never smoke hookah without a tall glass of sweet iced tea next to me. Just goes together too well. Also when things go bad, nothing takes the taste of harsh smoke out of your mouth like good old sweet tea.

I usually go with Earl grey, a personal favorite, though Darjeeling is excellent with hookah.

Here's my suggestion - go to twinings.com - right now they have in their accesories section a nice wooden box with 6 boxes of tea to try, for 10 bucks. Its a great deal, and gives you a nice variety of tea to try with your hookah.

For me, it's moroccan tea 100% of the time (gunpowder green tea, fresh mint leaves and sugar)..

Have it every day!

try some green tea or milk tea, and with green tea, if you got a bad buzz coming on it just wipes it all out.
