Fumari 'Blueberry Muffin' Flavor Hookah Shisha Tobacco Review Day 21


Our Comments

FUMARI 'BLUEBERRY MUFFIN' FLAVOR HOOKAH SHISHA TOBACCOThis is a fairly pleasant smoke. The Aromatics are much stronger than the flavor, but it legitimately tastes like a blueberry muffin. The flavor carries a blueberry tone that doesn't overwhelm the palate, which is nice because you will also notice subtle notes of batter and even a touch of a butter impression with a odd. It's not exactly "bursting" with flavor as Fumari describes, but it's still fairly straight forward. My only wish is that it was stronger, but then that might be just me.

With that, the flavor starts to fade out after maybe an hour and a half. You'll find a good cloud with this tobacco with impeccable texture and a decent longevity. Could be a little more flavorful but still a good smoke. --Steve

Manufacturer's Description

Fumari’s Mandarin Zest is a powerful flavor that blends the delicious sweetness of a mandarin orange with a kick of tartness that will wake up your taste buds!  If you didn’t see the huge clouds of smoke, you would swear you just bit into a fresh mandarin orange!

Our Comments

This is probably one of my favorite flavors to date.  I've always been a big fan of citrus flavors like orange, pineapple, tangerine but I've never had an opportunity to smoke one with the 'zest.'  Typically used in cooking to add piquancy to dishes, zests are sparingly used.  Knowing how much care Fumari takes in flavoring their shisha I have to imagine that they intentionally made the zest the dominant notes in this one.  It was a bit overwhelming at first as I was used to a sweet and tart citrus shisha where this one was much more biting and sharp.  I have to say, I really enjoyed this and it was an incredibly refreshing detour from the norm of citrus flavored shisha.

The aroma was mouth watering and the clouds, texture, and longevity were are typical of Fumari - WORLD CLASS.  I don't get much of a buzz off of Fumari Shisha which is a positive in my eyes but it's the only reason this flavor didn't recieve a 4.8 or higher.  If it were up to me we'd reverse the grading scale on buzz and make lighter buzzes the higher rated attribute - but it's not.

Oh yea, and Fumari's description of ".. you would swear you just bit into a fresh mandarin orange!" is spot on - if you bit into it without peeling it  :-).

Other Reviews

  • Very balanced orange flavor - definitely zesty, very fruity on the tongue, and with a lingering citrus flavor. Looking forward to trying it mixed with French Vanilla.    Jessica - Customer Review on 04/20/2011 (Fumari.com)
  •  It's really good, one of Fumari's best. Fumari really hit it out of the park on this one. -Stuie  (hookahforum.com)

Manufacturer's Description:

Simply Mango is exactly what’s stated. Just mango. It’s one of the purest most succulent tasting mango hookah flavors to have ever hit the world market. Imagine taking a fresh bite out of a fully ripe tropical mango and you’ll get Simply Mango. Don’t let the name fool you though, there’s nothing simple about this flavor. The explosion of taste will have you tantalized. There are already many other flavors which mix deliciously with Simply Mango quickly making it a staple in anyone’s stash.

Our Comments:

I actually have to defer to the Manufacturer's description of this flavor for my review because it voices everything I was thinking while smoking this flavor. Simply Mango is not close the feel of smoking a fresh mango, it IS the feel of smoking a fresh mango! This flavor is 100% spot on!

Expect a fairly thick cloud with a smooth texture. The longevity is incredibly long, and the aroma matches the flavor.

Other Reviews:

"Simply Mango is a delightfuly fruity new flavor from Starbuzz Bold Shisha Tobacco.  Featuring a very clean and distinct Mango flavor, Simply Mango is sure to become a favorite for fans of the tropical fruit or anyone who enjoys a good tropical fruit shisha flavor. " -HookahCompany.com

Manufacturer's Description:

A fun mix of classic gum flavors.

Our Comments:

There is a lot of Gumball flavored Shisha out in the world, and if you've tried most of them, you'll know that much like the "Apple" flavors, Most Gumball shisha flavors miss the mark entirely. Even Starbuzz, the manufacturer that seemingly can do no wrong, doesn't quite get there. 

Social Smoke, however, seems to have cracked the code with their gumball. The secret seems to be the same method that the makers of Fruit Stripe gum used, and that is to throw as many gum flavors as you can into your product and then everyone has something that they can enjoy about the flavor.

With candy apple, berry fruit, vague stone fruit tones and even a touch of plain pink bubblegum flavor evenly blended, Social Smoke has come as close as possible to making a flavor that a person could legitimately imagine begging their Mom or Dad to cough up the pocket change for at a grocery store check-out lane.

The texture of the smoke is a bit more rough than most tobaccos but the cloud remains relatively light. The aroma carries a bit of that licorice smell from the usual "two apples" style of tobacco but don't let that dissuade you, it doesn't really carry over to the taste. Expect a fair longevity for this flavor.

Other Reviews:


  • "Gumball is just that—a gumball. The taste is remarkably similar to a real gumball. Very mild, sweet-mint taste makes it easy to smoke and doesn’t get too in your face. This flavor is simple and has no apparent undertones to speak of." -HookahReport.com
  • "I really like this flavor. Like I said before, it reminds me of the sensation of chewing gumballs when I was a kid. It is just a fun flavor! I think Social Smoke hit this one dead on and I hope that more traditional Hookah Whisperers will give this one a try. It is very fruity and berry-y, and it does have a gum taste to it. How they found that flavor, I’m not sure I want to know, but they hit it right on!" -HookahWhisperer.com
  • "This tastes exactly like a pink gumball from a coin machine. It's very accurate and super tasty." -User Review from HookahLounge.net

Manufacturer's Description

The latest and greatest flavor in the Fumari Hookah Tobacco lineup is a smooth, strong and satisfying blend of citrus fruits with black tea.  It is bright and refreshing while having a soothing characteristic you know you can only get from breathing in the scent of a nice cup of tea.

Our Comments

I've alway been a big fan of tea over coffee. Blame it on Captain Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, but a nice hot cup of Earl Grey Tea has always been the perfect end to a nice night. So when I opened the bag of Fumari Citrus Tea and got a big whiff of the shisha, I instantly recognized the aroma as bergamot orange.

Why Fumari didn't name this Earl Grey tea, I'll never know. Regardless of whether or not it actually contains any bergamot oil, that's the aroma and flavor of this shisha. Imagine a great big cup of Patrick Stewart's favorite brew for the duration of the 90's in hookah form. With that, I might have a hard time being impartial while reviewing this shisha.

With the Aroma and Flavor already being described in great detail, the cloud on this shisha is huge! Want a dependable tobacco to use for smoke tricks? This is it. I gave the texture a rating of 4.0 only because this is a huge flavor and might be a bit over the top for even the most seasoned smoker. Additionally, this may be the first flavor that I actually feel a bit of a buzz from due to how strong it is, it also maybe be the tobacco with the greatest longevity ever.

If you're the type of person who not only enjoys Earl Grey tea but also takes it with two bags instead of just one, then this may be your tobacco, just be prepared for your smoke to be just as strong. Not for beginners.
