Hey fellow hookah gurus. Christopersmokes here, with a new product review. The Fantatasia airflow coals. I’ve had these coals before about a year back. But I needed to get them again for this review. First off you get 45 in a box. The box is sturdy and the packing is similar to most natural coals. Oh didn’t I mention these are naturals?! No odor, no chemicals, no bad fumes. The design for these coals is what sets them apart though. They are in the classic cube shape. But with a triangle grove set in the bottom. ( ill post a pic of a coal later) the purpose of this grove is to allow air to flow both over and under the coal, giving it consistent heat. Now saddly during the lighting process if the get lit to hot to quick it can cause them to become fragile and break in half. So be careful. Now I use two on my alien phunnel bowl with tangiers and it smoke great. They last about as long as giai coals or coco nara. The price for these coals is also something I like. 7.99 on hookah-shisha.com. that’s for 45 coals! Not bad. I would give these coals a try. 
Happy smoking hookah lovers!

Hey guys! Long time, no posts, huh? Well I apologize. I just haven’t smoked anything fantastic recently. Kind of a hookah funk. Oh well. 

I’d like to do a quick product review, if I may. 
Those coals? The ones I have pictured? Yeah. Those are rubbish. Don’t even look at them. 

Thanks guys! Smoke yourselves silly!

Hookah video wth hookahstuffs and christophersmokes! Showing you all how to do some smoke tricks to impress well anyone! Check it out when its posted!
Keep the hookahs smoking!

Starbuzz Vanilla. Good or bad?

Well, truth be told, this is an awful flavor. 
I wanted to like this, and I wanted to be able to use it in mixes. But it’s not even a decent flavor…
Don’t get me wrong, it’s very flavorful (whatever that flavor may be, I’m not sure, but it is most CERTAINLY not vanilla). And it leaves an awkward taste in your mouth. 
The smoke is fairly average, as you’d expect. Not much to say about it. 
BUT! It left my apartment smelling like fresh baked cookies! (I’m trying really hard to find the silver lining in this flavor)
I might try mixing it with cherry tomorrow with christophersmokes while we’re filming our smoke trick video, and see how that works out for us. If it’s great, you’ll find it on here. And if not, you won’t! 
However, if you decide to buy yourself a tin, and you find something that it goes well with, LET US KNOW! We’d love to hear some mixes from you guys, too. And product suggestions. I’m always eager to try the new cool fads. 

Now, call up some friends, and get a session going.

Hookah etiquette ladies and gentlemen its all about the etiquette

Hey guys! Christopersmokes here! I got some interesting info for you hookah gurus. We all smoke and enjoy out hookahs ans we know its not just about the smoke its the art of it all and the care your hookah. But also how you smoke. Hookah has passed through many generations and some rules of etiquette have become more layed back. Here are some rules I know and follow. 1.my house my rules else aside, whoever is hosting is making the rules. Whether you’re at a lounge or a friend’s house, if it’s their hookah then kindly defer to them regarding expectations. Also, when smoking at someone’s home, offering to reimburse them is considered rude. Sharing a hookah is a community activity, and the host would not offer it unless they wanted to.By the same token, a host should consult their guests in choosing a shisha flavor – if everyone is sharing, then everyone should enjoy it! 2.no touchy. While smoking hookah is often a group activity, the set up and coal management is not. Generally one person sets up the hookah, and one person is in charge of coal management throughout the session (this may or may not be the same person). The theory is akin to “too many cooks in the kitchen spoils the soup”. Traditionally, whoever sets up the hookah will smoke first, then the person who is in charge of the coals. This doesn’t necessarily mean that their turns are longer – that’s really up to the host. 3. Puff puff pass The hookah hose seems pretty self explanatory – you just smoke out of it, right? Wrong! So wrong! The hose has its own set of expectations. - Hogging the hose is a huge faux pas. Three to four pulls from the hose is a standard duration per turn. - If it is still your turn, and you must set down the hose, lay it in your lap. - Always pass the hose clockwise and with your right hand. Sounds strange, but in many cultures passing with your left hand is considered unclean, because the left hand is supposedly the hand reserved for, you know…butt wiping. I tried to phrase that with class, but it just didn’t happen. - Do not point the hose tip at someone. This goes for during conversation, or while passing. As Stephanie Tanner would say, “How rude!”. When handing someone the hose, bend it in half with the tip facing you. - If using a multi-hose hookah, do not smoke from multiple hoses at the same time as this will negatively affect the pull. Plug your hose while the other person smokes and wait until it is your turn. - Don’t ever pull the hookah by the hose. - When the session is over, wrap the hose around the hookah so that it does not touch the ground. 4.don’t be gross Luckily, these days it’s very easy to acquire your own, personal mouth tip. Just pop it in when it’s your turn, and take it back out before you pass the hose. Boom! Slobber free!The next thing is less hygiene related, but is still bodily function-centric. It can be considered rude to cough during a hookah session. Be mindful of taking pulls that are too deep, keep the coal heat managed, and just take it easy if you’re still learning your limits. No one wants to watch you hack up a lung while they’re having a nice time.Side note to cigarette smokers – whether or not you’re partaking in the hookah session with your pals, do NOT light your cigarette with the hookah coals, nor should you ash in the coal tray. Bad. Form. Hope you enjoyed the etiquette information my fellow hookah smokers. Keep smoking and stay classy America

Peachy melons

Hey fellow hookah gurus! Chriatophersmokes here with a sweet, tasty review. I have the usual setup. Km with nammor hose, heba diffuser and vortex with windcover. And two coconut Gaia coals.

Now let me tell you of this great flavor combo I got goog on today. I pack the vortex with tangiers melon blend with al tawareg juicy peach. In the base I have three peach mango tea bags in ice cold water. In the beginning of the session I couldn’t really taste the tea but the longer you let it steep the more flavor you get from the tea. The is a pretty interesting flavor mix. Very sweet and actually mouth watering. I’m a big fan of fruit and sweet flavors. The clouds are thick and billowy. And smoke rings are floating in the air. The taste of these two flavors goes together well. Neither flavor over powers the other. Ying and yang. And the buzz I’m getrig from this mix is intense. This is a must try.

I hope you guys give this a try if you like sweet, full flavored, fruity flavors. Keep smoking fellow hookah guru’s.

Hello followers. I’d like to share with everyone the masterpiece that I smoke out of everyday. 

I have a 33” tall Kahlil Mamoon Pharonie, ceramic vortex bowl, 72” fretted Nammor hose (washable!) with a velvet cover, a slim edition Soguk, the Heba diffuser, and an extra large wind cover since my bowl sits awfully high. 

For those of you who don’t know, KMs are completely handmade hookahs in Egypt. They are the Rolls Royce of hookah brands. No two bases are alike, and are hand blown. And they have a variety of stems that are all brazed and welded, you guessed it, by hand. I happen to have their famous Tri-metal stem, with loads of egyptian engravings throughout. It has a copper down tube (which takes a bit more maintenance than most as that green crap can build up inside). 

Enough of that. 
I tend to keep mine immaculately maintained. I take a thorough cleaning of my base and stem once a week. And quick cleans between each smoke since flavored liquids in the base tend to linger if you don’t..

Just thought I’d share! Sorry for the reused photo and useless information! I would take a new one, but it’s late and my roommate is sleeping.

"Minty Mountain Dojo"

Social Smoke Absolute Zero shisha, super chilled water with plenty of ice, and Ice Breakers mints in the base. 

This is one that takes a bit of preparation. Start with putting the Ice Breakers in the base, then put in the ice. Finally, add the water and store your base in your fridge for an hour or so, stirring occasionally. Unless your base is prone to cracking. But this will give the water the blue color you see in the picture, and a very, very minty flavor. And if you happen to have a Soguk, make sure that’s ready as well, and if you don’t, put your hose in the freezer for 20 to 45 minutes before you smoke(WARNING: NOT FOR NAMMOR HOSES. THEY ARE NOT DESIGNED FOR COLD TEMPERATURES!). You can also try putting your stem in the fridge to get a tid bit more chill to this smoke. 

Now, now. Back to business! The level of mint you’ll be experiencing with this is astronomical. The colder you make the smoke, the more the flavor seems to explode in your mouth. Mint shishas always have the most intense flavor, and when mixed with other flavors, can yield some amazing flavor combos. 

I wouldn’t recommend the shisha that I used, as it’s more of a spearmint, and seems to counteract the flavor of the Ice Breakers… And! The tobacco that Social Smoke uses don’t really give you that ‘buzz’ that brands like Starbuzz, Romman, and Tangiers give you, which, in this particular mix would REALLY add to the experience of this smoke. But nonetheless, this was quite a smoke. 

The smoke in this was really nice and thick with just a couple of Coco Naras (which, for you hookah n00bs, are all natural coals made of coconut shells that I’ll put a review of on here soon) and a wind cover to keep the heat in. Like many of the other mixes that I’ve done, the exhale clouds are tasty and superb for tricks! And as an added bonus, make the room smell fucking great. 

So, if you’re quite partial to mint flavors, give this a try if you’re up to the challenge! But make sure to check if your setup is fine with cold temperatures. 99% setups are designed to handle cold temperatures as its very popular to do so, but be careful. Don’t complain to me if your setup breaks trying this. 

Follow if you like this! I try to post a couple yummy mixes a week for all of you to try.

As always, smoke on friends!
