Default Grape and mint mix?

Ive been smoking grape and mix for quite a long time. I have some nakhla el basha grape and nakhla mint and AF mint. Dont think i will be buying AF grape yet!

I just wanted everyones opinion on how much grape/mint ratio they use in their mix. Personally i use a little mint only 10-15%, was just interested to see how much others use?

yeah i want to try the mizo mint and grape, not had a chance yet. Loving the mizo watermelon, especially with a little bit of mint and the guava is damn good to. Just got some mizo red apple, cant wait to try that!

The El Basha grape is pretty good, I used a little bit of AF mint with that. AF Grape nowadays is somewhat sketchy could be really good, or it will be simply terrible.

yeah i really like the el basha grape, very candish grape flavour. i might try a few with alot more mint i.e. lieka third that you were saying.

ive not done that before as im concerned that everything will just taste like mint as its a strong flavour. mint does die down somewhat quickly when used as a mixer so i may try putting alot more mint in and see how it tastes after a while

I used a pinch of mint, cause El Basha is more candy like. For me, the El Basha grape is like a grape jolly rancher and I couldn't imagine a grape jolly rancher with mint in it.

i once tried mint and grape but i put a thin layer of mint at the bottom and then filled the rest of the bowl with grape both AF and sprinlled a tiney amont of mint on the top. frist you can taste the graoe alot but it has a nice cooling sesation. and bou after 30.40 minz you cant start to taste the mint from the bottom of the bowl

yeah ive done this aswell with mint and other flavours. not done it with grape and mint though. its good as its gives a change of flavour towards the end and keeps the ession fresh but i think with the grape and mint i would prefer a mix from the beginning

I have done it with El Basha Grape and Nakhla mint - they actually work surprisingly well together. I'd say do ~1/4th mint and mix them thoroughly before packing. I actually like grape-mint better than grape by itself.

yeah i can quite easily say the best smoke i have EVER had was grape and mint while i was on holiday once. i used to smoke but wasnt too into it and didnt ask what brand, setup etc they used. Cant even remeber what hookah/boal they used. all i remeber was the taste and the fast that they made an amazing foil rim aound the bowl and used like 6 peices of really small naturalcoal. wish i had asked mre, but i hope one day i manage to get this mix as good as it was that day.

infact im trying to reach that quality of smoke, it will be my mission!!
