Default What do you think of this idea...

Im planning on making a hookah later for me n my cuzo. The only flavor we have currently is al fahker double apple. I dont wanna just smoke that..instead, i wanna change it up a bit. Im thinking about mixing the al fahker double apple with some mint leaves..then i will put ice in the base...what do you guys think? Or should i put the mint leaves in the base and leave the tobacco how it is?

i say put the mint leaves in the base. i've heard having them in the base helps give the smoke a cooling chill.. i would think if you mix them with the tobacco in the bowl, they'll burn instead of bake like the shisha making it a minty harshness lol. thats just me tho, i would go for putting them in the base..

Hmmm?? Can't say I've ever smoked straight mint leaves... I'd think it would be kinda harsh as the mint leaves cook under the coals. I'd prob try it in the water first. Actually, maybe muddle the mint in the vase with the water to really bring out the flavor..

I've put mint leaves in the base, I like the feeling. It's a very subtle mint flavor/menthol feeling that is added to the smoke, it's nice and refreshing. I would say put them in the base instead of the bowl for the reason ozlopez said.

id put them in the base. i could see them getting burnt in the bowl very easily. the heat of the coals would be too much. put a bit of water in the base and add the mint leaves an hour or so before you want to smoke so the water has time to soak up the mint flavor then add the ice right before smoking.
