Not much you can do for a unwashable hose. After every sesh and before every sesh blow through it for a minute or two.

I have no idea what it could be, ask the person working there what kind it is.

Seems like your best bet is to explore areas near your home if ordering online is not and option for you. Try to find a different place with a variety of flavors.

definetly ordering online isn´t an option for me. Underage, no good income, and a mild disapproval from my mother arent quite helpful.

I think that the problem of flavor isnt really the brand of the molasses, but the hoses or an unclean Hookah. Next time i drop by i will ask about the brands (if any)and well.. lets see what you guys think about them.

Syrians are made in Syria, Egyptians are made in Egypt Syrians are usually full brass and egyptians arent.

Well the stems on an egyptian seem to be more bubbly or i dunno how to explain it. The hose ports on an egyptian are curved.

Syrians have sharper more detailed stems at times, and the hose ports are often straight rather than curved.

That's weird. I forgot to clean my little chinese piece of crap for a long time, and i had a mix of all the flavors i previously smoked. It tasted really odd, but i could taste them all.
I would buy some of the tobacco and try it out.

Syrians stems are more decorated, narrow shape. Egyptians have larger bubbled stems with little to no decorative etching/stamping. Either can be made of brass, stainless steel etc etc. No type is metal specific.

You can not clean an unwashable hose. More than likely it will either rust if it is lined with a metal wire or fall apart if its wraped leather.

As for the cafe, it could be them using the cheapest possible shisha they could buy. In other words, them.

Almost all tobacco for hookah is molasses or honey based. Depends on what brand you buy. For example Al Fakher contains molasses.

You can't clean an unwashable hose. Throw it out after you use a few times unless you want to be inhaling rust.

It sounds like the shisha cafe near you is incompetent. Save your money and smoke at home.

unwashable hoses can be cleaned. You just need compressed air. Let the hose sit for a week so all the residue dries, and then twist it around and bend it plenty so the residue loosen and then blow it out with an air hose. Repeat. I do this a work w/all my hoses.

thanks guy

so, a syrian is more gorgeous, and there is not a BIG difference between syrian and egyptian.

only thing about the cafe is that it has only two lounges in the whole city, and as far as i know, is the only Hookah Cafe in the area. When i get a chance ill go there to "examine" the place, or ill rather phone them.

You can take a look at the site in here http://www.egyptiancafe.com.mx/

I use canned compressed air, to clean my hoses. The same that I use to blow dust off my computer. Just hold the nozzle to the hose opening, and presto. Then blow it out, normally, to make sure you have all of the propellant out.

Sounds like your cafe, is using a low-brand shisha, and also that the coals may be too hot, and the flavor is burning up. Try using just enough coals, to get moderate smoke.

My Khalil Mamoon Twilight hose is rusted, but I'm holding out for a Razan.

It breaks my heart so much, that I have been on a hunger strike for the past 3 days.

I used my hose to strangle a pedophile after I realized it was rusted.

The website you linked says they sell Prince Molasses brand tobacco. Never tried, but I've heard bad things.
