Default Order came in... Newbie needs mixing ideas!

Ok, so the sample packs that came with my hookah ran out and i just splurged quite a bit on shisha. I've found myself completely overwhelmed by variety and have no idea of where to start.

Anyways, I have the following at my disposal:

Equipment:
3-hose 24" Chinese hookah (smokes better than it sounds, i swear!)
Small funnel bowl
Small Egyptian bowl
"Ultimate Combo Bowl"
Plenty of CH Instant Lights (Best coals i've used so far)
Half roll of no-name QL's
Reynold's Wrap (HD of course)

Shisha:
--250g packs:
AF Apple
Expired AF Ark Sous
Expired AF Plum
Expired AF Cherry
Expired AF Melon
Tangiers Passionfruit

--50g packs
AF:
Grape
Coconut
Banana
Caffe Latte
Orange
Cola
Mint x2
Pineapple
Lemon
Strawberry
Bubblegum
Watermelon
Peach
Two Apples
Plum
Pipe
Cardamom
Lemon with Mint
Grenadine

El Basha:
Grape

Nakhla:
Banana x2
Peach
Orange
Cherry
Fruits x2
Lemon
Strawberry
Apricots
Mango
Coconut
Two Apples

Al Waha:
Vanilla
Honey

Nakhla Schezerade:
Earl Grey
Cardamom
Cinnamon

Layalina:
Cappuccino
Bubble Gum
Strawberry
Cherry x2
Passion
Margarita
Pina Colada

Afzal:
Cherry
Pineapple
Orange
Peach (Tastes like tires!)

Starbuzz:
50-ish gm Peaches and Cream


So..yeah. I'm very happy with my order with CH...So much better than the local head shop around here.

Any comments on what's good/what isn't or good mixes would be greatly appreciated.

Also, any tips on packing tangiers in a funnel? Mine always seems to either smoke very little burn resulting in harshness and a massive nicotine dose. I've tried 2 and 3 coal setups to no avail. Would my homemade scalli mod be causing this? (Before you ask: no, the tobacco doesn't touch the foil)

Thanks for your time!

Wow, that is a good selection lol.

Think of things that sound good, or that normally go well together.
eg.> Cappuccino & Vanilla or Cinnamon would probably go well together.


You can mix and match most fruit flavors. Just throw together what sounds good to you!!

As for the funnel, i pack mine like i would a normal bowl- Lite and fluffy.I wouldn't think a scali mod would cause it to burn. Try breaking the coals so you just use halfs and throw a windcover on it.

Good luck, enjoy the smoke!

I like the AF mint and Straberry mixed tgogether or mint and grape sounds funny but it tastes great. I just bought another 250g of AF mint for a steal at my local shop for 10. great deal.

Any fruit and mint is generally good. Also AF Peach with Nakhla Cardamom or cinnamon is great. AF Apple and Nakhla Cinnamon is great too. Use just a pinch of Mint, Cardamom or Cinnamon in your mixes because they are strong flavors and will ovewhelm the fruit flavors.

I liked Romman Mint, but it was my least favourite Romman flavour - well, after the raspberry that was so dry it could barely be smoked.

Enjoy your extensive shisha collection haha - give the flavours a smoke solo before mixing them. They're all made to be smokeable solo I guess anyway - some flavours you may just hate though, like my reaction to sweet melon was near instant vomit.

You must've gotten an old batch Flim, I smoked the raspberry not too long ago and it wasn't bone dry. Mind you the flavor was a little too subtle for my liking, but it wasn't horrid.

It was old, 1 month off expiration. I am sure I'd love some decent raspberry, recommendations?

Thanks for all the inspiration! Guess when i restock on coals i'll order some nahkla mint... I recently mixed orange, coconut, and lemon at a party. That came out very well.


Isn't putting milk in the vase a health risk unless you wash it REALLY good afterward?

It's just a matter of scrubbing it out thoroughly. Also if you do a vinegar rinse when you are cleaning that helps clean out any baddies. a lot of people swear by the smoke results though.
