Inhale: Psychedelic

Inhale : Psychedelic

(Mango, Guava, and Mint mix)

A few months ago Hookah-Shisha started carrying the Inhale brand from Jordan in 125g tins and 250g tins. I believe all of their flavors are mixed ones, most of which you need a guide to understand.

Hookah – Brass Awlad Sarhan
Bowl – Vortex
Vase – Cold tap water
Foil – One pre cut (not pre holed)
Hose – Nammor
Coals – Three Coconaras per round
Buzz – Minimal, but noticeable
Flavor – Strong
Clouds – Pretty big at its peak, so you need to keep the heat up to maintain them.

Review: I wanted to give Inhale a try, and this mix of mango, guava, and mint just sounded good to me. It is a little pricy at either 10 dollars for 125 or 17 for 250 so I went with the 125. (As a brand note, they did not seem to skimp at all on the amount of shisha in the tin). When you open it the smell hits you immediately, and it is fairly wet. Inhale: Psychedelic has a very fruity smell and blend, but with no specific flavor sticking out. I have never eaten a guava outright, just had the juice, but I did not notice that taste too strongly. Inhale: Psychedelicreally tasted exactly what it smelled like, with a little more mint in the draw, and a little more mango in the after taste. I used three coconaras, and went through two rounds of coals in a little over two hours. It is a mid to high heat shisha, because I started with two, and barely got anything. Added a third and it really picked up, but around the 30 minute mark when I would flip , the clouds would start to thin out, even after the flip and wind cover. When I added the fresh coals it picked right up back and by the time we would have added three more the flavor was almost gone and the bowl was finished. At its peak I got huge flavor and huge clouds. I was smoking with two other friends and they both really liked the flavor as well. To try and describe it a little better, I was excited when I first smelled Nakhla mixed fruit, but very disappointed by the flavor. The flavor I got out of Inhale: Psychedelic is much closer to what I would expect.

Overall I would easily keep Inhale: Psychedelic stocked in my stash for people to try. Its perfect when I am looking for a real fruity flavor. Would have given this an 8, but had to dock half a point for it being washed , only giving a small buzz.

Al Tawareg Citrus Mint

Al Tawareg Citrus Mint offers a flavorful taste of lemon mixed with a mild mint flavor.

Al Tawareg Citrus Mint offers a realistic lemon flavor that is tart but not candied flavored like other popular lemon shishas.

Smell & Flavor: Right out of the box you pick up the strong lemon scent with a mild mint flavor. The flavor describes it as a citrus mint but we only picked up a lemon flavor instead of the typical citrus medley.

Smoke: The smoke quality was better than some of the other Al Tawareg flavors we have tired, the smoke was sufficient but not very impressive.

Buzz: The buzz was moderate, but very relaxing.

Duration: Just over an hour in a standard Egyptian bowl. The flavor was quickly lost after the first hour.

Overall the Al Tawareg Citrus Mint shisha offered a unique take on citrus flavored shisha by providing a realistic tasting and tart lemon flavor with mild mint undertones.

Rating: ★★★★☆

Social Smoke Mobster

Social Smoke MobsterSocial Smoke Mobster captures the flavor of the popular energy drink that shares a similar name with their new flavored shisha.

Smell & Flavor: The smell out of the tin is very fruity and has citrus and herbal undertones, it smells almost exactly like the drink the flavor is based off of. The flavor of the smoke was very tasty, it had the same flavor of the drink without those chemical undertones you get in the energy drink.

Smoke: Large fluffy clouds, very smooth and clean smoke.

Buzz: Light buzz, very relaxing.

Duration: About 1.5 hours in a vortex bowl.

Overall the Social Smoke Mobster shisha flavor was a very accurate representation of the popular energy drink flavor, the only downfall was that we wish the flavor was a bit stronger at times.

Rating: ★★★★½

Al Tawareg Wild Mango Shisha

For our second Al Tawareg review we decided to try out the Wild Mango flavor, with surprising results.

Smell & Flavor: The smell out of the box was just like a candied mango, very sweet smelling. The flavor of the smoke was a strong mango flavor, not as candied as the smell out of the box.

Smoke: Large clouds, thick robust smoke, very smooth.

Buzz: Very Minimal Buzz

Duration: About an hour in a standard clay bowl using coco naras.

Overall the Wild Mango flavor offered great smoke quality, but the candied mango flavor was not something we were very impressed with, we prefer a natural mango flavor instead.

Rating: ★★★½☆

Tangiers Mimon

Tangiers Mimon has got the mint and lemon flavor down perfectly with their shisha.

Smell & Flavor: The smell out of the bag is very minty, you can pick up hints of the lemon scent but the mint is overpowering, after acclimation the mint smell was not as strong. The flavor of the smoke was a perfect mix of mint and lemon and stayed consistent throughout the entire smoking session.

Smoke: The smoke was very smooth and allowed for huge clouds, typical with most tangiers flavors.

Buzz: Moderate buzz, heavier than typical tangiers flavors in our experience.

Duration: Just over an hour in a small phunnel.

Overall the Tanigers Mimon was easily the best mint and lemon shisha flavor we have ever tried, it blows the Al Fakher Lemon Mint out of the water! We are looking forward to trying this flavor again soon.

You can purchase Tangiers Mimon from Hookah-Shisha for $14.95 (250g)
