Breathe in, blow out.
The basis of smoking hookah is centered on this concept, but what most people don’t know, there are a few other actions that will enhance your hookah experience.
Not everyone starts out as an expert, but we all have to start somewhere.
But don’t worry…
…the hardest decision you will make tonight while at Karma Kafe is the flavor of the night!
Shisha Pipe Flavor Suggestions
For beginners, I always suggest something friendly like blue mist or skittles; they’re always a crowd favorite.
Have fun with mixing different flavors to come up with your own personal blend.
Check out our menu of delicious shisha pipe flavors.
If you are a serious hookah smoker and want to try something new, consider trying double apple.
The hookahs that carry double apple flavored tobacco only get double apple made in them to keep the flavor pure.
The Tall + Short of It
With my professional advice, you can never go wrong with a tall hookah, it’s the best way to get the thickest smoke!
Don’t worry short hookahs are cute too, but they just don’t match up to the power of a tall hookah.
How to Replace Your Coals
Your shisha pipe will come with two already lit coals.
It’s very important that you let the coals sit for a minute to let the bowl heat up.
Afterwards, once you have smoked for ten or so minutes, you can let your server prepare your new coal, or give it a go yourself.
- Simply knock off the ash that’s attached to the still burning coals.
- Leave one on top of your bowl.
- Set the other on an unlit coal.
You’ve just replaced your first set of coals, congratulations!
Games to Play
Smoking hookah is a social event, so put down your phone!
I like to play a game where we stack all of our phones on the table, and the first one to pick up their phone has to buy a drink for someone in the group.
It can turn into a riot, trust me.
Don’t be surprised if you can’t blow smoke rings the first time you make your way out to Karma.
If you want to do some tricks, start out with bubble blowing.
Another one of my personal favorites, especially if you love keeping the bubbles up in the air as much as you love making them.
If you Have Too Much Fun…
Now if you start to get light-headed, don’t worry you will be okay.
I suggest drinking some water and stopping smoking until you feel better again.
Most of the time, this is caused by lack of oxygen, or you simply didn’t eat enough that day.
Smoking a shisha pipe (hookah, of course) is becoming more and more popular, and now you know the basics of making yourself an enthusiast.
Becoming a hookah expert is pretty easy, and all it takes are few trips to your favorite hookah bar!
Karma provides a positive atmosphere and awesome servers.
Keep your feet off of the couch and don’t pick up the hookah unless you know what you’re doing.
Other than that, I promise you’ll have a great time at Karma. Give us a call and make a reservation!
