Whether you’re in our lounge or at home, preparing your shisha, or tobacco, for hookah smoking can be an art. Each time you prepare your hookah, the process will become easier and easier, allowing you to sit back, relax and exhale. Make sure to follow these steps to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your home hookah.
Mixing Your Tobacco
First, you’ll want to mix your tobacco evenly. You can feel free to mix certain flavors and experiment. For example, you can mix strawberry and banana to get a unique tasting experience. However, you’ll truly want to focus on covering all of the tobacco with flavoring and molasses. Some shisha comes packed tightly in its own juices, so you can use a quality brand of your choosing.
Preparing the Bowl
Break up your tobacco and place it loosely in the hookah bowl. Be careful not to pack it in. You will want to allow enough space for airflow. Also, be sure that the shisha does not touch the foil. If it does, it may create an unpleasant taste.
Preparing the Foil
Your foil sits on top of the screen. Any sheet of foil will do. Press the foil firmly and carefully on top of the bowl. Poke holes in the top. Typically, you’ll want anywhere from 50-100 holes. This is to make sure that the hookah coals can heat the shisha.
All of these steps, if followed properly, can create the relaxing hookah smoking experience that you’ve been craving. But you don’t have to prepare your hookah yourself. Come into Lux Lounge and let us create the experience for you.
