6/10. Possibly tainted the taste of the tobacco? Follow up review to come so I can address that issue. Not bad though. VERY fast heat up time, lasted a little longer than cocojamras, and for the price, very nice. Hopefully I find in the next review that they don't alter the tobacco taste. I really really hope that was just the tobacco that tasted chemically, cuz I have another box of these on the way. :P Lol. We shall see. Picked these up from 5starhookah.com
Today Matt reviews Guru Tobacco's "Stars and Stripes" flavored shisha.
To me, it seems like a berry mix. Maybe blackberry / raspberry. If you've ever had Welch's Fruit Snacks, the red and purple-ish ones.. it tastes like the purple ones.. but not as good. Or if you've ever had Tangier's Brambleberry, this reminded me of that, but not done as well. It also lost alot of the flavor about 30 minutes in, which we've found to be true of most Guru's we've smoked.
I rate this a 4.5 out of 10. It's an okay flavor, but only lasts 30 mins, then you get an artificial "bleh" taste after that. If you're looking for a Blackberry / Raspberry smoke, go for Tangier's Brambleberry instead.
For our setup, we used:

Got this new item at 5StarHookah.com. This coal is new to the market so there isnt much info on them. I am happy that alex sent these to me so i can get the name out there. This coal is an awesome coal. It cheap, works well and ashes just as good as the famous COCO NARA. Priced only at 10$ for 108pc you cant beat that!!! These are exclusive right now at 5StarHookah.com. Check this item out people!
NOTE. I tried to keep it under 11 mins but i couldnt. I wanted to make sure i showed everything that is important to someone that is looking for a new coal.
I give this flavor a 5/5. This was a great strong mint flavor. It reminds me of HH Spearmint but alot stronger. this bowl lasted about an hour and a half and the flavor stayed strong. I would say if your looking for a mint give this a shot.
the razan hose is great a 10 out of 10 from me. this hose has a great draw and has a nice wide gauge. the razan coals are also a good buy. they have no taste, odor or smell. these coals also get a 10 out of 10.
the coal actually lasted almost 2 hrs
This is my first order placed with Nazarhookah.com I ordered a 31" KM Single Red Pear with free Razan upgrade. Came with everything but the cleaning brushes it said it would come with. Not to upset about that cause Mahir throw in a KM hose for me even tho this hookah didnt come with it. Got some fantasia yager bomb too. All in all 10/10 for this order. Oh on a side note my hose grommet is messed up gonna contact them about that and the KM has alot of chips all over it. But still air tight from what I can tell so far.
excellent charcoals. they do ash slightly more than Coco-Nara charcoals but for me, its still such a small amount. no smell or taste and excellent longevity. 10/10 for me. i think i may order a box of these as they are a bit cheaper than Coco-Naras. a BIG thanks to Mahir at nazarhookah.com for supplying these coals. check them out!
apologies for the length of the whole review! there was a lot to cover and compare. in short this a Razan Charcoal review. with a side review of two other well known coconut charcoals. CONTINUED ON PART 2
Accessory Review: Razan Abu Mahir Washable Hose... 7/10. Going into detail about the Razan Abu Mahir washable hose. A great hose, but does have some noteworthy issues that could be better. The non-removable tip and it's lack of flexibility causes it to lose a few points, but overall a great hose that produces nicely. Found exclusively at nazarhookah.com.
