Manufacturer's Description

Passion Fruit Hookah Tobacco has a very fruity, yet a light and smooth taste.

Our Comments

This is kind of disappointing to me. Passion Fruit is one of my favorite fruits, but this shisha is a pretty lackluster flavor to me. This shisha has more of a plum taste with a chocolate hint. You also find a fairly drying quality to the texture that scratches the throat a little bit. 

Expect a fairly weak cloud and average longevity to this tobacco. -Steve

Other Reviews

  • I was very dissatisfied! It did not taste like passionfruit to me or my wife. Passionfruit is one of my favorite fruits (I eat them about once a week) This shisha had a good tropical taste, but hardly any passionfruit. -HookahForum.com User

Manufacturer's Description

Apple Mint Hookah Tobacco is an original Fumari flavor creation. It blends the flavors of sweet and crisp apples with an icy cool mint.  It produces fluffy smoke clouds that are sure to satisfy.  

Our Comments

This is a very light flavor. Fumari has managed to produce a flavor that is very light and pleasant with a hint of an apple butter tone along with a slight mint.

Expect a fair cloud with a good texture and longevity. -Steve

Other Reviews

  • "5 flames for sure. One of the best."-Fumari.com Customer Review
  • "My first impression was how strong the mint smell was and how mild the apple was. But once you start smoking Fumari Apple Mint, you get a nice sweet apple flavor blended perfectly underneath the cool mint. 10 points for flavor, and 5 bonus points because the apple doesn’t taste like licorice! Fumari Apple Mint shisha tobacco gives you a natural, sweet red apple flavor, without it tasting sour or like candy".-Hookah-Shisha.com
  • "the mint got lost in the flavor. I wish it was stronger. It's more like a straight mint shisha. I like it's one of Fumari's better shisha's."-HookahForum.com

Manufacturer's Description

This icy blend of mixed mints makes a chillingly cool smoke that refreshes your senses.

Our Comments

Social Smoke has made a really intriguing shisha here. I honestly don't know how to review this flavor, all I know is that I like it. It's funny that they've named it "Absolute Zero" because when you smoke it, there's really no discernible taste on the palate. Those who have tried this flavor may be quick to point out that there is a huge mint impression to the shisha, and that's totally true, there is a big punch of a peppermint sensation, but as for the actual taste of the smoke, there isn't one.

That's actually pretty awesome in my mind. Who doesn't like the cooling sensation of mint? Now you can enjoy that sensation without actually tasting mint I mean it's a menthol cigarette without the taste of cigarette tobacco. It's biting into a York Peppermint Patty with out the having to taste the chocolate or the mint.

Now you might question why this is a great idea. A mint shisha that doesn't have a taste? Why smoke a tobacco that just feels like breathing air though a menthol cigarette filter?

Imagine being able to mix in that cooling sensation with any flavor you want, without altering the taste.

...Yeah, that's pretty epic.

I like this flavor by itself, but it also opens up so many possibilities for mixing. So that being said, I suggest getting this shisha and experimenting by yourself. -Steve

Other Reviews

  • " Absolute Zero is a delicate flavor. I don’t mean that the flavor is mild. It’s definitely not. The mint is very strong. However, because there are some quiet sweet flavors beneath the mint, it’s very easy to muddy up the experience." -HookahReport.com
  • " I tried this tobacco and got really stoked. In my opinion it tastes absolutely like spearmint what I really like. It chills your whole mouth and throat. I think if you like mint tobacco this Shisha is definitely a must have." -SocialSmoke.com Customer Review
  • " I have to give this hookah flavor a 10 out of 10! I’m blown away! And that doesn’t happen every day. Social Smoke Absolute Zero hookah tobacco will probably always be in my hookah collection, right next to Starbuzz Blue Mist, Starbuzz Pina Colada, Al Tawareg Triple Apple, and Al Tawareg Orange Cream." -Hookah-Shisha.com

Manufacturer's Description

Sky rockets in flight, this blend will satisfy that appetite. A sweet tingle on your tastebuds, you’ll certainly want more Afternoon Delight.

Our Comments

This is the first time I've smoked anything from Hookah Freak and I've gotta say that this is a very unique flavor. The taste comes across as a floral feel with a tone of a vague fruit and cocoa nibs. The disappointing thing is that the flavor doesn't last long at all. I give it a solid 10 to 15 minutes before you start to notice that it start to fade out quickly. Good flavor while it's there, but it's just a quickie on your afternoon lunch break and  it's really not satisfying to anyone.

Expect a good cloud, off texture, and nothing in the way of longevity.

Manufacturer's Description

A refreshing blend of sweet tangy lemons and a splash of pink recreate a summertime classic.

Our Comments

This is actually the first flavor I ever had from the guys at Social Smoke when they came over to Sukit and dropped off a box of samples for us, and it was an awesome way to introduce themselves to us because the first flavor I had knocked it out of the park.

Their description of the flavor is right on target. While you smoke this flavor, you'll notice a fair touch of a lemon tone nuanced by a sweet berry fruit impression that balances perfectly with the lemon.

An average cloud and longevity accompany a good texture.

Other Reviews

  • "I don’t think i have ever had a can of sheesha ever taste like what it says it is as much as pink lemonade. After smelling it and smoking it, it truly was pink lemonade, no doubt about it. It was also delicious :D"-SocialSmoke.com Customer Review
  • " You will get a super strong lemonade smell from the package that will not only fill your senses but the room as well. You’ll probably get people from the next room coming over asking, “do I smell Pink Lemonade?” In other words, don’t plan on smoking this by yourself! If you were to close your eyes and smoke Social Smoke Pink Lemonade shisha tobacco, you’d swear you were tasting the real thing! It’s potent! This is one of the strongest and most tart lemonade shishas around. There is a slight grenadine sweetness that lies just underneath the lemon flavor rounding off this nice, refreshingly smooth Pink Lemonade shisha flavor."-Hookah-Shisha.com
  • " Super tasty and flavorful. It's not very sour but it sure is sweet and lemony. It's sweeter than the basic lemon and has a little added something to make it "pink". If you like pink lemonade this is a must try."-HookahLounge.net

Manufacturer's Description

Our Caramel Banana Foster Shisha has the taste of a warm scoop of steamy banana foster drizzled with caramel; just like the real thing.

Our Comments

Hookah-Hookah is a brand that has a tarnished history for me. Back before Sukit Hookah opened up shop here in Toledo, your options as a hookah smoker looking for shisha were pretty bleak. You have to choice between two arabic grocery stores that seemed to have nearly the exact same selection of Al Fakher and 360/Snowbuzz and a local chain of head shops creatively named The Head Shed that just carried a cheap shisha brand to legitimize the sale of questionable looking "hookahs" FOR TOBACCO USE ONLY as the many signs in the store proclaimed. That brand was Hookah-Hookah.

One day out of curiosity and being burned out on the shisha from the arabic grocery stores, I purchased several Hookah-Hookah 50 gram boxes and each head I made from them seemed equally disappointing. The tobacco seemed of a very poor quality, the molasses overwhelmed every flavor, and the texture was incredibly harsh.

So now, years later, I can tell you from this flavor, that things have improved, but just slightly.

Hookah-Hookah's Caramel Banana Foster is alright as a flavor, but not great in my mind. The caramel taste is present, and that may have a lot to do with the molasses they use, but the banana flavor is almost negligible. There is also an after tone of natural cigar leaf tobacco. The texture is still a little gritty but not nearly as bad as I remember. The cloud is fairly good, but the longevity leaves a lot to be desired.

I feel like this is an okay flavor to have, but not a great one to purchase.-Steve
