The world of hookah flavours
Double Apple: A Classic Start
Picture yourself biting into a crisp, juicy apple. Now imagine that refreshing taste combined with a slightly spicy hint of anise. That's the taste of Double Apple, the original hookah flavour loved by newbies and experts alike. It's kind of like the chocolate chip cookie of the hookah world. Simple, yet oh so satisfying.
Mint: The Ultimate Freshmaker
Next up, we've got the zesty, vibrant flavour of mint. This is the one to pick if you're after a hookah session that leaves you feeling cool as a cucumber. As a standalone flavour or mixed with other flavours, mint is a refreshing breath of (smoky) fresh air.
Blueberry: Berry Delicious
If you're a fan of all things sweet and tangy, you're going to love Blueberry. This flavour is like a carnival in your mouth - sweet, slightly tart, and absolutely packed with fun.
Grape: Full-bodied Fun
Here's one for the wine lovers out there. Grape hookah flavour is robust, fruity, and downright delightful. It's like sipping on a glass of rich red wine, without the hangover!
Watermelon: A Summer Symphony
Last but not least, we have Watermelon, the epitome of sweet, light, and oh-so-refreshing. Smoking this flavour is like taking a dip in a cool pool on a hot summer's day. Bliss!
We always encourage you to explore and experiment with hookah flavours. It's a fun adventure where you can find your own personal favourite.
If you're under 18, please remember that supplying tobacco products to a person under 18 is an offence in Australia, as per the Australian Federal Police website. The Department of Health provides useful information about tobacco use, including shisha. Additionally, if you're living in New South Wales, the NSW Government has set certain guidelines regarding smoke-free laws. Read our blog for more information.
The Art of Combining Flavours
Now that we've got the basics down, let's add a bit of spice to the mix. Did you know that you can actually combine different hookah flavours to create your own custom blends? Yeah, it's as awesome as it sounds!
Let's imagine, what do you reckon would happen if you combined the sweet and tangy Blueberry flavour with the freshness of Mint? You'd get an electrifying blast of berry freshness, that's what! This combo is perfect for when you're lounging around with your mates on a hot day. Or, how about mixing the full-bodied Grape with Double Apple? The result is a rich, layered taste that's like a symphony in your mouth. These are just a few examples – feel free to get creative with your own combinations!
Mix and Match Hookah Flavours
When you're diving into the world of hookah, it's not just about the flavours. It's also about mastering the art of smoke. The size and thickness of the smoke clouds are part of the whole experience. In fact, blowing out big clouds is one of the fun aspects of a shisha session. To master this, you'll need to learn how to control the heat and pack the shisha just right. Don't worry, with a bit of practice, you'll be cloud chasing in no time!
Know Your Hookah: A Quick Crash Course
Did you know that the hookah itself can influence your smoking experience? That's right! From the height and design of the hookah to the materials used, all these factors play a role in your overall shisha experience. Here's a quick crash course. Tall hookahs generally provide a cooler smoke, while smaller ones offer a warmer, more intense flavour. As for materials, a hookah made with stainless steel is easier to clean and maintain. Plus, it doesn't retain the flavour of previous sessions. So if you're switching from Grape to Watermelon, you won't have any leftover tastes interfering with your flavour journey.

Responsible Smoking: Keeping It Fun and Safe
As much fun as shisha can be, it's important to keep in mind that it is a form of smoking. Like any other tobacco product, it comes with health risks. We at LA Shisha Club always advocate for responsible smoking. This means knowing your limits, being mindful of who you're smoking with (remember, supplying tobacco products to anyone under 18 is illegal in Australia), and being aware of the potential health risks. Remember, hookah is a social activity meant to be enjoyed leisurely. So take your time, enjoy the flavours, and above all, stay safe.
