How To Prepare Shisha Hookah  / Heat ManagementHow To Prepare Shisha

Too much heat can kill your flavors of shisha. Each brand of shisha is going to react to heat in different ways.  Most modern brands such as ShishaPuff, Starbuzz, Bazzokah, Social Smoke, don’t react as well to high levels of heat and can taste burnt if you add too much heat at once. We recommend doing a bit of research ShishaPuff Shop or your friends) on each brand to see what longtime smokers recommend in terms of heat levels for each brand you plan on smoking.


Hookah Bowl Packing Techniques

As with heat management, the way you pack your bowl / head will depend on the type of shisha you are smoking, as well as the bowl you use.How To Prepare Shisha

A fluff pack, or semi-dense pack, will work for almost all brands aside from AlFakher and Mazaya. How To Prepare Shisha just sprinkle the shisha into your bowl and lightly pack it down to just a bit under the edge of your bowl. A fluff pack will allow for proper heat distribution. You want to have great airflow so that heat can evenly pass through your shisha and in turn evenly heat your tobacco.

A great general tip is to use a toothpick or foil poker to make lots of small holes in your shisha once your bowl is packed. Poke all the way down to the bottom of the bowl. If you are wondering what we consider to be the best style of bowl for general smoking sessions, we generally recommend phunnel style bowls or Silicone Head (with Kaloud) these days as they tend to work best across a wide variety of shisha brands.

And you Use Aluminium foil, when poking holes in your foil (we recommend using one sheet of a hookah specific foil, or heavy duty kitchen foil) or ShishaPuff K.D. aluminium foil. Always make at least 3 full rings of holes around the central spire of  your bowl and then one hole directly in the center of the spire to prevent your foil from getting sucked down and clogging the spire hole. Make sure that the holes are evenly spaced for the most even heat distribution.

One final tip is to check your airflow once the bowl has been packed and wrapped in foil. Hold the bowl / head above your head and place your lips directly on the bottom of the bowl. Inhale through the bowl to test the airflow. If it feels restricted you may need to rethink your packing techniques.

The Shisha / Hookah BaseBlue modern acrylic hookah bluetooth led

When it comes to your hookah base the most important thing is to ensure a proper water level. If you have too much water your hookah will be very restricted. Too little water and your smoke will be very dry and hot. This can lead to headaches when smoking and a sore throat. We recommend having the end of your downstem, or the highest holes on your diffuser, submerged by about 1 inch.


Mold can build up very quickly in the warm environment of a hookah base and that mold can absolutely ruin your shisha’s flavor. Not to mention that it’s really gross and unhealthy to be inhaling mold.

Never leave water in your base after your session is over.

Using a smoke filter powder like Smoke Skreen may help keep your water a bit cleaner and can improve the quality and flavor of your smoke too.

While it may be popular to add ice or cold water to your base to get cooler, smoother smoke, be aware that cold will lessen the flavor you get from your shisha. It’s analgous to trying to brew tea in cold water. You just won’t get the same level of flavor that you will with room temperature water. How To Prepare Shisha if you are wondering what liquid to use in your base to get the best flavor, we always recommend plan old water. Nothing else compares.

Celebrating the Art of Shisha Hookah

Celebrating the Art of Shisha Hookah

We are always on the lookout for ways to improve your shisha smoking experience. Here are a few tips we picked up along the way:

Cleaning your shisha after every smoking session will avoid the build up of residues that will eventually clog the system.Buy Shisha Tobacco Flavours Al fakher Mazaya

When perforating the foil on your shisha bowl, make small holes to avoid burning the molasses. Use a toothpick, a pen or a fork when you punch holes into the aluminum foil. The bigger the clay bowl, the more holes you should have.
  •  Do not use too much coal and the smaller the pieces the better. Too much or too big will burn the molasses really quickly and give a burnt aftertaste when you are smoking.
Once you have packed your bowl, cover it with aluminum foil (without holes), flip the bowl upside down and let it sit for a few minutes. This will make sure the molasses at the top layer are wetter before you burn which will enhance the flavor.
  • If a rubber seal is too small or you notice air leaking somewhere, use a little tissue paper in between or use insulating tape to ensure your shisha remains airtight.
Some smokers like to use a shisha diffuser when smoking. This plastic body that is attached to the bottom of the shisha stem diffuses the suction by breaking down the big bubbles into many small ones. This improves the smoking experience by creating more smoke and enhancing the taste.
