Default how to make the COLDEST, most refreshing smoke?

i went to a really good huka bar in queens, ny- best huka bars in the WORLD are there lol and for one their flavoring was AMAZING, never in my life have i tasted shisha sooo good... i tried strawberry and it tasted like i was biting into a strawberry, amazing... and besides that, when i inhaled, the smoke was cold, refreshingly cold.. it felt really good.. ive tried putting ice in the bowl, and eh that didnt quite do much.. ive tried putting my hose in the freezer, and after 5 minutes in floridas heat ( i smoke in my backyard, i live in fl) the cold hose was now warm again... anybody with tips, please help thanks... do i need to fill the water in the base and then put in the freezer for a while? thanks

Lol uh yeah ice in the bowl isn't the smartest idea lol. It'll just melt from the coals and ruin a good bowl of baccy.

I've heard of people freezing the stem and vase for ONLY A FEW MINUTES! Don't do it any longer cuz your vase might crack.

Freezing the hoses for a lil will kinda help along with adding ice cold water and ice to the base

I'm sure he meant ice in the base...

If you've tried a few things with no success, you could always simulate cold smoke. Put a pinch of mint in with any of your flavors or mixes and it will taste a lot more refreshing..

It's funny actually.

I've never really had the need to get the vase water super cold. I went through a stage of putting water in the freezer for an hour and adding ice to the vase.

I cant' say i noticed any huge difference in flavour and/or smoke volume.

I personally think that heat mangement and getting the heat right is more important.

I've filled a bucket with ice and put my hookah base in it, buried in the ice and put ice in the base, it was very very cold lol. The smoke actually made me cold like I just ate a bunch of ice cream or something lol.

i agree maybe its not soo much freezing everything on your hookah but rather the shisha your using becuase i have smoked some flavors that were all hot and harsh and some were cool and refreshing. but as he said try adding a lil mint to your flavor?

Every time I smoke I put 8-12 ice cubes in the vase (depending upon which right i'm using) and while does cool the smoke a little bit I do it mainly because it condenses the smoke and give better texture as a result. Naturally, my ice chambers do radically cool and condense the smoke when ice is used in the base as well.

If you really want a cold, refeshing taste I suggest using the most refreshing shisha ever made (Afzal Silver Fox) and mixing it with your favorite fruit shisha in a 1:2 ratio.

you can wrap a bag of ice around the stem, all along it, or a cold pack. it helps me get really cool smoke

I was smoking in the garage today (kinda forced to now) and it was pretty cold.

I noticed after 30 mins, my smoke got very cool. My ice already melted a while before. I think its cuz of the cold weather that really helped my vase get cold Finally, there is a good reason to smoke out in the cold now lmao

Put your Stem and Hose inside the freezer before you smoke.

Guaranteed cool smoke for at least 20 minutes per hose.

If you have more than one hose, throw a few in the freezer, let them ice up and start smoking one after another.
