Shisha can be enjoyed all year round, of course, but as the long summer nights get warmer, those who have never enjoyed a hookah pipe can be tempted to give it a go. So, to help you out, here’s our advice on how to enjoy your first smoke!
Different styles of hookah stems
Stems like Khalil Mamoon and Madgy Zidan are very widely used hookahs and are classic Egyptian stems. This type of hookah pipe has unique designs. The hookah pipe is simple and straight which is covered by a thin metal. The vase gets the smoke through the pipe only while the outer cover is just for giving it an artistic touch. The outer look of these instruments can vary widely. It can be given a simple look or its look can even be an elaborate one which looks great in the garden. However, these stems are widely used all over the world. Khalil Mamoon is one of the most respected names in the hookah industry.
Brass stems are another common type of stems. These are commonly found in Syrian Hookah. The design of this stem has changed with time. The old design has a very solid casting with no gap between the inner stem and outer layer. However, the modern design has a centre pipe and is surrounded by cast segments that have been connected together. The most modern style is Nour Karakoul.
Popular Flavours of Hookahs
Certain hookah flavours are popular all over the world. Some of the most popular ones are:
Mint is quite a popular flavour which can be mixed with several other kinds of flavours.
The Al Fakher Mint flavour is considered to be one of the most authentic ones. There are other mint flavours, which are available in the market and are cooler and stronger compared to this one. However, none of them has been as popular as this one because no one has been able to bring out the essential flavours of mint like Al Fakher.
Starbuzz Blue Mist
Starbuzz is considered to be one the favourite of both the experienced ones and the newbies. It has been tried by all the hookah lovers and it continues to the top seller all around the year.
