Default i love trying new things!

I have been getting just a bit bored with hookah these last few nights. you have to understand, i have my choice of hundreds of flavors from several brands at my fingertips.
The first time I tried mint, years ago, i don't even remember. all i remember is saying that was ok, but never again. i would mix a bit of mint into other flavors to add a mint kick when bored once in awhile, however I never dared trying mint alone again, until last night. we had a hot windy day, fires up north, smoke smell outside, so i needed to cool down and decided to go for AF mint, straight. absolutely loved it, and I could never understand why anyone would buy a 250g box before last night. this may have to become a regular flavor for me. it wasn't strong at all, i think what makes it strong is when you mix it with a grape or lemon, but straight was a lot better than i thought. any other straight mint fans here?

It's even more chilling on a cold day. Will be snowing here in Philadelphia soon. Good luck with the forest fires over there.

straight mint is crazy good. But havana straight, last time I had it at least, was too much. AF was doable like 5 days ago straight.

As for mixing, I used to actually mix double apple and banana (aka rafi shisha) a lot, and then for kicks I'd add in mint leaves, like mix in a real leaf and sprinkle some dried mint on it, it would be a nice spicy kick

Trying something new is what every one should do, me personally I just bought some salloum flavored and unflavored .. i haven't even read a review on it but since its something totally out of the box I went for it

But on the whole mint thing, yea I love it esp that cooling feeling.

i have always enjoyed it, but the mint flavoring irritates the back of my throat a little.(not to do with the smoke, promise). i actually have part of a 50g AF mint just sitting in my cabinet, all but forgot about. maybe i will have to join john in re-trying it.

Another straight mint smoker here...I haven't had Nakhla's Mizo Mint but Al Fakher Mint is massive! Also, lots of peeps like to mix Nakhla Sherazade Cinnamon but I always smoke it straight. On a cold morning it's a great smoke!

Hey john if you really want to cool down, take some altoids, crush them into a powder, and put them in the vase water. Trust me, it's amazingly refreshing. In fact ima pick up some altoids and do that tonight, cause I havent done that in forever.

i've done that, it is curiously strong. you can also try mint oil, find that at larger albertsons/kroger's/your local equivalent.

yeah i fell in to a similar situation, mint was the first thing i tried at a lounge and it wasnt very good but i got af mint in a while ago and mixed with it then said what the heck and tried it straight and loved it.

in fact of the 2-3 bowls i smoke on a night i smoke at least 1 has mint in it.

a great mix is af mint and cinnamon, even toss in a touch of af pipe and its very nice

AF mint straight is great. I also mix mint leaves with it. I always have mint leaves around because I am a great fan of Fatoosh which requires mint.
