Default Zona Shisha Breakthrough

I just had a chance to try a product from Zona which I think is a first in the industry- shisha with absolutely no taste what so ever. Zona Watermelon had almost no aroma, produced huge clouds of smoke and zero flavour. This is a new experience as i've had horrible tasting shisha, great tasting shisha and everything in between. Even more amazing is that altough the tobacco was possitively swiming in glycerin I couldn't detect even the normal sweet taste associated with it.

I havn't received a good batch of Zona since my first blueberry's and 2 other flavors, and when ordering again they totally sucked and were exactly how you described, even the blueberry. And then i contact Zona and they say thank you for your input, because they don't care at all about quality because businesses still buy their terrrible excuse for shisha.

I had two samples of this stuff.

Pink lemonade and a SevenUp sample.

This has to be the smoothest smoke I've ever had, but the only problem being that the flavor was very weak.

I actually thought the peppermint and pink lemonade were pretty good. Haven't tried any of the other flavors though.

I've heard about this shisha but I've never tried it. Isn't the guy still messing around with Zona tobacco and is still trying to get it right?

When people say a tobacco is wet, it pales in comparison to this.

It's literally swimming in whatever that **** is.

I tried the blueberry and it was as near flavorless as it gets. I'm glad it was sent to me as a sample (from a member) and I didn't waste my money on it. I threw the rest of it in the trash. Yes it is awash in water wetness is used.

Bah...I heard the pink lemonade was the only good flavor...One flavor doesn't cut it. Neither does drowning in glycerin.

Pink lemonade was his most flavorless, along with Jungle Juice. I forgot, peppermint is fantastic, not sweet enough but great mint.

Sorry to hear that Kwikwi. I just threw out 100 grams of the stuff. By the way, does anyone know of a natural/realistic watermelon shisha? I don't mean something that tastes like those cheap hard candies or soda but the real thing?

Yes...... this is the guy that smiley partnered with before the big blow up. I can't remember the dude's name, but apparently it's still "smiley's"

Soaked in glycerin and no taste. but, that's only what i hear. I used to love mixing smiley's with other brands for monster clouds and great tastes

I did like notty cow and blueberry? though. When they were good.

Believe it or not the most realistic watermelon shisha tobacco I ever smoked was Smiley's. Of course you can't find that anymore. I think Salloum Watermelon is very good.

Actually, I have never seen this problem actually taken on. The only thing that is repeatedly offered is "The stores buy it like crazy. It has tons of flavor, I'm smoking some now" etc... But I have only heard 1 single vendor actually say that this brand has no flavor at all. Every single person who has purchased it so far has put up a response involving a flavor problem, but it has never been officially addressed, anywhere on any forum, just danced around.

No KK you heard right. This 100gr watermelon turned out to be 100gr glycerin. Like Hajo said it wasn't that it was a bad flavor it had no flavor. The one I bought had glycerin to the top of the tobacco leaves. I may give them a try some other time but this 100gr went into the toilet.

If it's swimming in glycerin, then maybe it could be used to "improve" dry shishas, but since this dude is still experimenting, you can't expect the first batch to "knock your socks off".

He claimed he wasn't in cahoots w/ Smiley anymore, but I wonder if he is using a similar recipe. Maybe he'll figure something out.... or better yet, come on and explain some things. One can dream, right?

He's come in multiple times and just said stuff like "Shops all around the country think it has flavor and buy it". He's been around for awhile now and everyone has been giving the same responses over and over.

Eh. Either it will pan out or it will be yet another "epic" flop.
