  3. I bought a new Mya QT and after using it for 3-4 times the downstem got stuck inside the base, due to storage. Tried alot of things to get the downstem out of the glass base but it is horizontally seated inside the base Any help would be hugely appreciated.

    Knock knock

    Today is the first time I'm seeing this post. I've been around some lately trying to drum up some conversation and I feel like I would have seen it earlier. Anybody got any theories? I figured it out. I haven't been checking off topic discussions.

    Hookah too sweet

    I saw your other post about traditional tobacco, so I'll kind of respond to both posts here. Nakhla Zaghloul is going to be an unflavored traditional hookah tobacco. there is also zaghloul lite which will have less nicotine. Nakhla Double Apple is oddly enough not apple flavored. It taste like anise or black licorice. This will also be a very traditional flavor as I believe this was the first flavored hookah tobacco introduced. If you want to avoid all fruit flavors, you could consider mint, cinnamon, coffee or chocolate flavors. Afzal has several Paan flavors as well. There are so many flavors for hookah it's impossible to try them all and everyone has different tastes which makes recommendations difficult. What would be your ideal flavor if you had a magic wand?

    Middle East Hookah

    Hey there! Just adding anything but glycerin wouldn't make it cloudy. The glycerin does. Of course nowerdays there is an option for pg too but what seems more intersting right now; glycerin is actually some kind of alcohol not active for a human being but it is a kind of alcohol. And this alcohol is like I just read a product which comes after adding sulfites to the alcohol generation. So if there was honey and a realy bit of water mixed to the tobacco and sulfites in which might have come out of a sugarcane melasses which we know now as blackstrap they might have just had glycerin by natural in. Maybe just ad glycerin to your leaf by a 1:2 ratio (tobacco:glycerin). By myself I use a 1:2.25 ratio and glycerin was mixed with honey with a 1(honey) to 2(glycerin) ratio and a few drops of water which i just drip in from my hand. Don't let confuse yourself from the strange ratios that's just the results of the tests I made by myself. If you would like to get it to glycerin by nature I think you need to store it quiete warm but I never tried . If you would like to test this glycerin honey thing - give it a month because glycerin needs time to eat the honey but it does.. somehow xD really sweet after a month. And... you know tobacco raw leaf is a very quality product with many good resin and if you wash it you make a quality product quiete worth- and tasteless just let it be the pure power of tobacco and get yourself a leaf in that strength you like. No wash. ;D Greetings from germany man dominik

  20. Hi y’all. Like hookah but find it too sweet. Any less sweet ones I can buy? Perhaps more natural like and less fruity / artificial like Al Fakher etc...
  21. Hi fellow hookah/shisha lovers. My first time posting after reading tons of great posts. Anyone know about smoking hookah similar to how was back in the Middle East like 40 years ago? I live in Cali and want to try it but don’t know exactly what it was. But one thing I know is that it was not sweet like the current hookah tobacco they sell in stores. I think they were non flavored as well. I may be mistaken but I think they were dry leaves not the wet molasses/honey type we buy in stores now. But they had a good taste. In the deep Middle East they call it “Ghelyoon”. I thought it may have been just dried natural tobacco without added flavoring. It it didn’t work: I bought pure organic tobacco leaves from a company online. I washed and cut the leaves into very small pieces by hand a couple of times with warm water. Then let them sit in hot tea water (Djarjeling/Black tea for flavor) for several minutes. Then shred them more by hand. Then dried them (sit out overnight to dry then in oven for 25 mins at 200 degrees. Was super excited to try packed the bowl of my Ghelyoon. And to my dismay no smoke/barely any smoke would come out. I read a few posts so I added some honey to it and.... again some improvement but minimal smoke. Last resort was I added some modern hookah tobacco from Al Faker to it and it finally worked but overpowered by the honey and the AF. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Hello everyone

    Edit And give 'gummibärchen' flavour a try, I think one of the most used smells in the world for everything but as singlenote brilliant
  24. Thanks for all of your hard work exploring options to source ingredients. I hope Italy will provide you with some good quality leaves. Let us know how it turns out.

    Hello everyone

    Hey newman! Feel welcome and just ask everything you want to ask. Just feel free My own experience with diy hookah is that you can have problems with getting strong flavours where you don't need that big amounts of to get them right. Herrlan shop got very clean strong flavours for vaping they work best for me. So never give up with flavours start herrlan around 7% for hookah. While mixing flavours you might get a need to increase the ratio up a bit and giving every flavour the same content needs sometimes one flavour to put in foreground. Greetings Dominik Ähhh man say, is it right you in the uk stopped by law selling leaf? Where do you get yours from?
  26. Hey guys I don't. After having a fast talk on phone with the team and no possibillity for cheap shippings to europe I did another little research for shop and finally found tabaccomania in italy where I feel very welcome. For information you lucky americans send packages to fife time higher prices to us then it would cost from here germany to you. Unbelievable haha ^^

    If you haven't already gone to Jamaica, you shouldn't have any problem putting un-opened charcoal in your checked bag. Be careful with quicklights since the TSA scans for explosive/combustible material, but if the roll is sealed and you don't get any dust in your luggage from your opened charcoal it shouldn't be a problem. Enjoy the warm weather, (I assume you're not going to Jamaica, NY in Queens).
  28. AF Melon and AF Mango were surprisingly good. When in doubt, Fumari Ambrosia. That's a nice blog post and well written. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Looking forward to the next blog.
