Shisha is a Middle-Eastern smoking
tradition that began hundreds of years before
the invasion of the big American cigarette
companies and is one of the most common
and interesting sites of the Arab World.
There are numerous cafes where one can lie
on long cushions and spend the time talking
to your friends and enjoying this Arab delight.
Tobacco is soaked in fruit shavings such
as strawberry, apples or grapes. This mixture
is then smoked through a large water pipe
(called a hookah). Men and women of the
upper classes in the Arab world have been
entertaining guests with hookah pipes for
centuries. Moreover, there are hoards of
Shisha purists who truly cherish this tradition
no less than a Japanese tea Master or Matron.
With the invention of the hookah
or "shisha" over 500 years ago,
the Turks refined smoking to an artful and
elegant ceremonial experience to be shared
in the company of friends.
The hookah uses a small charcoal
tablet to gently heat a special, flavor-infused
molasses blend. The molasses never burns,
but is filtered as it is drawn through the
water-filled, hand-blown glass base and
inhaled through ornate, embroidered hoses.
The vapor is incredibly smooth, sweet and
A hookah (Arabic: شيشة; Hindustani: हुक़्क़ा / حقّہ; is a multi-stemmed, often glass-based, water pipe device for smoking; originating in India, it gained fame under the Ottoman Turks. A hookah operates by water-filtration and indirect heat. It can be used for smoking many substances, such as herbal fruits and molasses. Depending on locality, hookahs are known as other names, such as a shisha/sheesha, water pipe, nargeela/nargile/narghile/nargileh/narguilé, argeela/arghileh/arguilé, okka, kalyan, gewat suckre, or ghelyoon/ghalyan. Many of these names are of Arab, Indian, Turkish, Uzbek, or Persian origin. Narghile (نارگيله) is from the Persian word nārgil (نارگیل) or "coconut", and in Sanskrit nārikela (नारीकेल) and it was made out of coconut shells.
 Shisha (شيشة) is from the Persian word shishe (شیشه, literally translated as glass and not bottle). Hashish (حشيش) is an Arabic word for grass, which may have been another way of saying molasses. Another source states, "In early Arabic texts, the term hashish referred not only to cannabis resin but also to the dried leaves or flower heads and sweetmeats made with them".
 Hookah itself may stem from Arabic uqqa, meaning small box, pot, or jar. Both names refer to the original methods of constructing the smoke/water chamber part of the hookah.
Narghile is the name most commonly used in Armenia, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Greece, Cyprus, Albania, Israel, Bulgaria and Romania, though the initial "n" is often dropped in Arabic. Shisha is more commonly seen in Egypt, Bahrain, Morocco, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia and Somalia. In Iran it is called ghalyoun or ghalyan (قليان) and in Pakistan and India it is referred to as huqqa. The archaic form of this latter name, hookah is most commonly used in English for historical reasons, as it was in India that large numbers of English-speakers first sampled the effects of the water pipe.
What is shisha? - More info HERE
Shisha is molasses ( Also called tabac, tombak, tumbak, gouza, guza, moassel, sheesha) mixed
with molasses and fruit flavors and is smoked
in a hookah. Shisha molasses is not your
typical molasses. It's nothing like the molasses
you find in cigars, cigarettes, or dip.
No, smoking true nargile shisha is an entirely
different sensation. Shisha Tobacco is the
Best as it's been well documented in the
media, the molasses in cigarettes is anything
but pure. Large amounts of nicotine and
other additives make it extremely harmful.
Some cigarettes claim to be additive free,
but plain molasses isn't terribly pleasant
to smoke. Smoked for flavor and not for
any kind of effect, it proves a relaxing
and peaceful pursuit. Since shisha is molasses,
smoking it involves some of the same ill
effects as other types of smoking. It is
very light and flavorful with a wonderful
fruity aroma. The most popular flavor is
apple, others include strawberry, pineapple,
apricot, grape, rose, mint, and even cappuccino!
(There is even an exclusive cola flavor).
In the Middle East, from Turkey to India,
there are shisha cafes where people gather
to smoke and drink coffee or tea. Smoking
shisha can last two hours or more and is
a very peaceful, social occasion generally
filled with good conversation with friends.
A shisha smoking session can last from thirty
minutes up to and hour. As an ex-cigarette
smoker, I can truly say that shisha smoking
is very smooth and most unnoticeable when

What is a hookah? - More info HERE
A hookah is known by many different names
in different parts of the world: a shisha,
a nargile (pronounced nar-geelah), a hubble-bubble
or hubbly-bubbly, a water pipe. The most
famous instance of hookah smoking is probably
that of the caterpillar in Lewis Carroll's
Alice in Wonderland. A hookah consists
of a hollow glass (sometimes clay or brass)
base which is filled with water, a vertical
pipe topped with a clay bowl for the shisha
and coals, and a usually colorful hose.
When one sucks on the hose, the smoke is
drawn down the pipe and through the water,
which cools and filters it. This also produces
a peaceful bubbling sound. This sound is
as delightful now as the prospect of blowing
bubbles in a glass of milk was to most of
us when we were in kindergarten.

I smoke "other things" out of my hookah? - Recipes HERE
Hookahs have for centuries been a molasses-related
product and the image of them as a pot or
opium-smoking instrument is largely of Western
origin. Indeed, it is considered very poor
etiquette in some circles to smoke anything
other than shisha in your hookah! However,
should you choose to place something else
in your hookah bowl, even regular shag molasses,
it is generally a good idea to mix your substance
with regular shisha, molasses, or honey so
that it is not too dry. If what you are smoking
is too dry, it is likely to burn away too
quickly, denying you the relaxed puffing inherent
to a good hookah experience.
What kinds of shisha molasses do you sell?
We sell many
different flavors, and the list continues
to grow. For some of the fruit flavors, there
is also a "light" kind of molasses, which we
recommend for general non-smokers or anyone
looking for a more gentle smoking experience.

|What kinds of hookahs do you sell?
We mainly sell glass-bottomed hookahs, though
small brass or clay hookahs are available
upon special request. There are three sizes:
small (approx. 21" tall), medium (approx.
26" tall), and large (approx. 33"). These
measurements somewhat belie the difference
between the types: the small hookah only weighs
1 1/2 kg while the medium one weighs closer
to 3 kg. There is also a large difference
in the hose size (especially the handle),
the size of the glass base, and the general
stature of the different hookahs. For these
reasons, I suggest you buy at least a medium-sized
hookah. To find out more about colors and
availability, please Browse

the hookah runs in a cycle.
It begins with the bowl which is located at
the top of the hookah, where we put our molasses. We place the bowl on top
of the hookah base itself, and the base goes down all the way to the vase,
which has our water or any other liquid substance in it.
When you suck
on the hose, we are creating a different level of air pressure inside the
hookah. Since the only opening of air that we have is our hose, we are
removing the air from the hookah, which causes the charcoal to heat
because of the air pressure change we are making inside.
