    By Guest,


    Starbuzz Tangerine Dream


    Setup: 26" Traditional Hookah
    Bowl: Tangier's Medium Phunnel with Scali mod


    Hose: Nammor and Custom washable
    Screen/Foil: Heavy Reynolds tiny holes around


    Liquid In base: Water and Ice
    Coal: 4 Coconara's

    Cut: kinda stemmy but overall typical starbuzz.


    Smell: STRONG tangerine smell. Very Orange Sunkist like.

    Taste: Very good, like it smells. But with more heat, it is way too strong.

    Smoke Thickness: This is where it's bad. I've read other reviews for this particular flavor that boast "HUGE Clouds" or "Rich white clouds". I got mediocre at best! Starbuzz usually does pretty well...one of the best...but this one didn't produce much. I'd say medium. Tried many combination of coals. Started with 4 on the big bowl, quickly droMFed to 3, then to 2...smoke and flavor overload went down...increased to 4 after they burned down a bit, and the flavor was on point, but the smoke was nothing special. Kind of a let down for the norm.



    Buzz: Very much. I don't usually get too buzzed from starbuzz...just a little. This one had me feeling almost drunk. It's almost unlike a normal buzz and more of a dizziness. This could be because of the attempt at getting big clouds and trying to manage the heat.

    Duration: 30 minutes? I gave up on it.

    OVERALL: If you love orange/tangerine flavors, you will probably enjoy this. However, I loved the smell and was very excited to smoke it. I recommend trying it in a smaller size if possible. I got lucky and tried it because I found the 50g tin. I've never seen that from Starbuzz and I don't know why it took them til now to let people try more flavors without committing to a 250g or a 100g and spending half a pay check. Since this one seemed difficult to manage the heat to get a good combination of smoke/flavor, I'll try it again with an egyptian bowl or in the phunnel again with added glycerine (with or without the scali mod).

    I'm looking for one of the handmade unglazed clay heads they use in Saudi Arabia. It has a big hole in the middle and splay out almost in a flat surface and you pack the tobacco around the hole. Does anyone know where to find these? If someone could direct me to a place that ships them to the US, I could definatly get at least 20 people to order them and more to come. I hope to hear back from someone soon!

    Name: Hookups Hookah Lounge

    Location:Lake Forest, California

    Owners name: Shah

    18+ (no alcohol)

    I have seen previous reviews about this particular lounge and none do it justice, so here is an updated review.

    The atmosphere of this lounge is ideal for its cause. Unlike many lounges obsessed with the nightclub concept, Hookups stays true to the spirit of a lounge. Upon arrival, expect a cordial greeting from the friendly staff with service that is attentive and prompt. However, many lounges can try to argue the same so......

    Why choose Hookups?

    - Over 10 potential flavors! Each with its own particular zing, with particular combinations developed by actual hookups customers. Peach Cosmo-lemon tea anyone?

    - Social networking is at its best. Unlike many lounges that seem to seperate everyone into their corners, Hookups practices a private, yet open seating arrangement. Within your group, you can easily conversate, but speak about the playoffs (for the sports fans) just as easily with the group to either side of you!

    Regular customers include producers, promoters, and various music artist as well. Its a great place to "hook up" and make connections.

    - The ventilation is ideal for an indoor lounge. Meaning, circulation of air is constant enough to provide easy breathing, yet not so strong as to disrupt blowing "o's" of smoke ( for the experienced smoker)

    - The lighting of this lounge helps to reduce that feeling of comatose normally associated with lounges. Instead of the usual darkness, your greeted with a lively aura, which in turn gives the lounge its upbeat, yet relaxed aMFroach.

    - They have WI-FI!!

    Ages generally range from 20-30, however it is still a great find for any age group. Just recently in my ventures to hookups hookah lounge, a good friend of mine brought his own father.

    To quote him, "I can see why you come, you've got great people here".

    They are open everyday from 7pm-2am and yes, people stay the whole 7 hours.

    Come for the music, usually a mixture of styles from middle eastern, hip-hop, to reggae.

    Non-alcoholic drinks and snacks are available upon request at a small fee, as well as personal hoses for the germ obsessed.

    Thursday through Saturday are normally the busier days, but any night is just as good a night to go.

    One of the main things I enjoy about this lounge is that you can go alone and still have fun. Don't just take my word for it though, see it for yourself! Hopefully I'll see you there.

    A lot of it depends on your budget.

    B/c I'm all about senses when it comes to my place for guests. Things are usually aesthetically pleasing and there are various smells that blend from place to place.


    There are a few options:

    -essential oils (in a spray bottle since you can't use candles)
    - Yankee Candle Air spray (they have a new one that is suMFosed to neutralize odors and give a "clean" sent)
    - Reed Diffusers (wood wick brand in my opinion or walmart brand works fine too)

    * as a side note walmart carries "sprays" that give off a scent but the spray bottles suck. So my advice is get a spray bottle for 50 cents and then pour in the different fragrances you want to mix. Few sprays near the ceiling or on a fabric and you're in business.

    This is my first hookah, a 3 foot tall, white mosaic Starbuzz hookah. I just got a job at a hookah shop about a month ago and have always enjoyed smoking. I am very excited to taste all of the shisha that we have and decide which ones are my favorites and which ones blend well together. I'm also looking forward to giving customers quality service through first hand experience. I have had my hookah for about a week now and it has been very enjoyable. The first flavor that I tried was Starbuzz 'Pirates Cave', I have since picked up many other flavors.
    The flavor that I have been smoking tonight is Fantasia's 'Purple Haze'. First of all Fantasia's shisha is driMFing in flavor syrup, you can smell the shisha right when you open the box. A pungent syrupy grape smell followed by a slight mint. At first the grape could be mistaken with children's cold medicine. The smoke has a heavy purple grape taste with that tiny slight bit a mint at the very end. I have a feeling this flavor would pair well with a glass of my favorite red wine 'Royal Bitch'. Its a sweet red wine, not too dry. When I think think grape with mint this is what I imagine it would taste like.
    ​ I like the convenient little zip lock bag my 50 grams of 'Purple Haze' came in. Its definitely the messiest shisha I have had to deal with yet, but the strong flavor is definitely worth it. I think of royalty and colors like royal blue or royal purple when I smoke this flavor. I am still very new to this and another reason I am keeping a log is to watch as my palate changes along the way. I always love to journal about coffee tastings and different restaurants I have been to, so I figured why not start one for my smoke? my long term goal is to blend my own unique flavors.
    Feeling a little restless tonight so I was considering packing another bowl before I try to go to sleep. I have a small 50 gram container of the Paraoh's 'Sex on the Beach', it was the cheapest closest thing to coconut the shop had at the time and I have been craving pineaMFle as well so I thought I would give it a shot. It's far messier than the fantasia. Its a light sweet flavor, a great tropical combination. I noticed that this one is made with molasses. I wasn't paying too much attention to the fantasia, but I am very interested in figuring out what the differences in sugars and syrups are. I feel like such a blubbering newb, but I know I'll figure it all out.

    Here it is my favorite time of year; smoking hookah outside, friends, family, barbecues and fresh produce. My only wish is that it was a little longer. I love the season all four but summer has always been my favorite. The years here increase and the summers grow shorter. As a child summer seamed endless, as a young adult action packed, now as mature father seams it just gets started and its time to think school, and winter coats.......snow shovels, and holidays and before you know it the cycle repeats. Is time moving faster? Or am I just racing through time?

    I should have started this when I had an abundance of Shisha.


    Today I'm smoking Rose and pretty much, It's an OK smoke.
    I love the exquisite taste that left me surprised and the smell that left my room smelling great.
    It's a very smooth smoke but would not smoke by itself. It would be great mixed with something, maybe clove?

    My opinion: 5/10
