Default Perplexed on flavor

Yesterday my order from Hookah-Shisha arrived. They have become my number one hookah store because of the fast shipping and great customer service. When we opened it up and smelled the tobacco that we got my wife easily picked SB Blue Mist. Great smoke and great flavor, however I am perplexed by the taste.

All the reviews say Blueberry with Mint/Menthol aftertaste, which I got. But there was another taste I just can't figure out. It bugged me the whole smoking session and now I turn to you guys. I think it taste a lot like sugar cookies after you blow out the smoke and the menthol taste goes away, but I am just not sure. Anybody know what I am talking about or did I just get a weird batch? If you know what I am talking about, have you figured out what it is?

And I did search on the forum but all I found was the Blueberry/Mint flavor, not the aftertaste I am talking about.

Hmm, it's really hard to tell what that last flavor could be from your experience. I, personally, didn't notice anything but the sickly blueberry/mint flavor. Hopefully someone had the same experience and can help you out a little bit more.

I smoked this once and was perplexed by the aftertaste too. To me it tasted like big chew bubble gum.

I find that SB has two different flavors. I get a completely different flavor out of it if the water in the base is not ice cold. I have no idea as to what the other flavor is though.

It does taste like straight sugar, which is why i don't like it at all.

It actually has nothing to do with blueberry

Pomegranate 90%
Mint 10%

Voila, blue mist.

Really? Amazing how much it tastes like blueberry.

Thefaded, my water was ice cold and still had plenty of ice cubes left by the end of the session. What does it taste like if the water is warm?

Zen, my wife said the same thing, straight sugar. But I thought I tasted a cookie taste in there as well, which gave me a sugar cookie taste.

I have a feeling this is going to be one of those where I keep getting it until I figure out that freaking taste!

I know, my universe was shattered months ago. Really though, grab yourself some SB mint & pomegranate or AF Mint & grenadine and give it a shot. You'll be amazed.

Yeah i thought it was a blueberry rasberry mint mix as well. It just taste sweet sugar flavor with a heavy menthol mint taste. I always have to mix it with something cause its just too strong by it self for me. lol

If I'm going to smoke it alone, I will mix it with Nakhla el basha Grape.

Blue mist does have an odd taste indeed. When I first tried this flavor, I couldn't get enough of it, but now that I've smoked it too much, the smell induces a gag reflex.

Just to show how different tastes can be, I picked up a tin of BlueMist awhile back and quite frankly I couldn't taste it at all. I tried smoking it about 4 or 5 times and all I got out of it was a mild sweetness but barely any discernible flavor. I gave the tin to a coworker and it instantly became his favorite.

Is it all of SB that has a sugar cookie/sugar aftertaste? Smoked Christmas Mix last night and it too had that sugar cookie aftertaste. Will order some more and try it out, but just wondering because I have never tasted anything like that in an aftertaste before.

Maybe, i don't smoke it so I wouldn't remember. Honestly though, every starbuzz flavor I have tried has had a chemical taste to it. Especially the lighter flavors.

Blue mist tastes like Incense to me. It's like being inside the shops that sell the kinds of things we don't talk about on this board.

Yuck.
