Question wtf Tea Shisha?

I just saw this little ad here on hookahpro talkin about some HH Tea Shisha or something. Is this something herbal now? Sound like fun... I've always liked tea, but I've never even thought about tea flavors.

Have any of you had any yet?

the hh teasha is not tea flavored, it is literally made of tea. there are different flavored tea shishas, they are just made of tea as an herbal tobacco alternative. but if u are looking for a tea FLAVOR, i would highly suggest nakhla earl grey. it may take some getting used to but it is really good once u get used to it.

See, I didn't even know tea flavors were on the market. Now I do, and now I will buy some.

As for the herbal stuff, it sounds nice... but I'm still stuck with a bunch of unwanted Soex and need to get through that first, which is going to take a WHILE.

Yeah, agree with you partylobster, I never even thought of tea flavored. That sounds bomb though. not going to lie =]. And i just don't think i would enjoy hookah if it wasn't tobacco. =P. Not saying that i like hookah because of the tobacco. i just don't think it would hit the same... wouldn't feel the same.. just wouldn't be right =P

haha, it wouldn't be right... like we're doing something wrong morally... like eating babies.

As swaflyer1 said, it is not tea flavored. Tea is used in place of the tobacco. The flavor is whatever is on the label.

Soex and Salaam and most of the other herbals uses Sugarcane bagasse (leftovers from milled sugarcane) as a base to add the flavor and other ingredients too where as the Teasha uses tea leaves as a base closer to the description of being a Herbal

I had Black Label Pomegranate and it smelled and tasted like grandma's perfume bottle. When taking pulls, I felt like i was drinking some nasty old lady perfume. Not pleasant at all. I have. I have more tea shisha in Strawberry, Orange and Kiwi. They aren't black label, so maybe they won't taste like perfume. I'll let you know sometime in the future.

I bought some of the Hookah Hookah Evolution Tea Sheesha a few weeks ago...and honestly it is a decent smoke. It is a very wet sheesha and clouds are no problem, however, you will not receive a buzz of anykind as there is no tobacco which means no nicotene. Most of the flavors linger in your mouth for a long time after smoking....although I recommend you smoke it in a funnel or vortex bowl...if you don't the amount of juice running out and down your stem will amaze you.

Hookah Hookah has almost every flavor of tea sheesha to match their regular sheesha. I got 5 50g jars (peach, mango, blueberry, spearmint, and guava) to try for around 16$.

Give it a try.

Why not just get real tea from the grocery store and add honey and glycerin to it?

Nice. That sounds good.

My friend was/is curious about Evolution brand. Guess I'll research it. Thanks for your take on it, bigbodybussey.

some of the evolution labels are actually kind of good! It's hit or miss like with most herbal blends. Pixelz will be reviewing a lot of the HH evolution flavors. Orange was pretty good.

I have had good experiences with the Evolution line. Tasty stuff.

If you want actual tea flavored tobacco I suggest Nakhla Earl Gray every time.

As stated before there are a few very good flavors in the evolution line. There are also some not so good ones. I really like blueberry and strawberry. The lemonade is pretty good as well. But yeah, this is not tea flavored shisha. It is however one of the best herbal smokes that I've had.

saw your review on the evolution line and thought I might as well try it. Never tried any sort of herbal shisha... so should be good. but I was slightly apprehensive to try herbal shisha I mean I haven't heard good things about Soex or Afzal...

Well I didn't read this whole thread, but as im sure others have said, Nakhla Earl Grey is amazing. I just tried it for the first time a few days ago, and it was AMAZING!!!! As for that shisha made of tea I cannot say because I have never tried it, but all herbal shisha I have tried sucked. Although, others say there are good brands out there.

I am so glad you all have recommended Nakhla Earl Grey, because now I'm really craving it. Most likely that is what I am going to buy next.

I don't really have a strong urge to buy herbal shisha, but I have in the past just so my friends against smoking could experience hookah with me. If I'm ever in the market for this stuff again I'll definitely check out this tea stuff.

And now that I think about it, this tea stuff is probably healthier than the cane herbal stuff. My opinion has no significant scientific basis, but tea has always been pretty amazing when it comes to health.

I know this won't solve the health risks of smoking even herbal shisha... it's still detrimental in some ways, but I'm thinking that it should be even less bad for us... if that makes since.

At least tea is not associated with pulmonary fibrosis. I'll take Evo over something like Saalaam any day, if only for the reduced health risk.

Sounds like a good way to bait'n'switch on em!!! I might have to try this sooner or later, keep seeing better reviews on it than when it first came out.

[FONT=Century Gothic]Heard about HookaH-HookaH Evolution Tea Shisha and got me a lemonade flavor. Shit was damn good, big clowds, and tasty. For a minute i couldn't believe i was smoking tea not tobacco. It gave me some kind of a feeling but its different from the tobacco feeling. Would recommend it. Plus its tax free![/FONT]
