I've already emailed them, but they may not respond until next week.
Crystal is alright, but I like Sahara better. I'm just afraid since they sent package via FedEx Ground, it's gonna be a B@TCH getting a replacement. I'm hating the fact that Hookah-Hookah still owes me a package, they also send via FedEx.
Now, if I could get ahold of PYH and get my rigs ordered, I would be a happy woman.
Shisha Cut: fine, no stems, dark brown, moist not drippy
Hookah Type: 27" syrian
Duration: 5 min
Bowl: standard eygptian clay
Foil / Screen: foil
Coal / Amount: 2 - 1" stargate
Smell / Flavor: Smell was a lime, with a undertone of something I couldn't put my finger on. Taste was repulsive - I got a single taste of something lime, then chemicals.
Rating (1 to 10): 1
OMG, it smelt decent, a limish something. But when I took that first hit, I got a slight lime then HEAVY chemical taste. I gagged. I tried hitting it 3 more time and that taste was just getting worse. Disgusting. After only 5 min in the bowl, I gave up and tossed it. Thankfully I only got a "shot", otherwise I would be angry.
One Razan Hose in Black with White handle
One Hose grommet
One Free 250g of Al Waha Arabic Coffee
Yeah! I love this hose, Trance does too. Very nice and the crystal handle is even better than the Nammor one's - LOL!
Plus, this puppy is more flexible that the Nammors - not sure why or how, but it is. I'm a happy hookah gurl!
Next up was the order from Hookah-Hookah... but not the complete order. I had placed the first part on 2/14/08, in order to take advantage of their "Free Double Blown Pyrex Bowl" with any 10$ order. So, a friend said some flavors she recent got were decent, so I ordered:
100g Hookah Freak Blueberry Pancakes
50g Hookah-Hookah Irish Cream
Key Lime Pie Hookah-Hookah Shot
(1) Hookah mouthtip filter
Kool thing was, the next morning I had gotten my taxes and called them up to add to my order - a Medium Green Polka-Dot base. They took it down, sent me a email receipt and I thought all was good.
Boy was I wrong. I opened the box and ONLY the mos'sel and filter were inside the bow - NO BASE and NO BOWL! I called them, they said something about a new shipper and had to wait till the extra $20 cleared my account (which already had) and someone would call me Thursday morning.
Thursday rolls around - no call. At 2pm, I called them and the guy I talked to said it would be shipped out ASAP. I get home as got an Email from them saying my order is shipped - BUT THE ORIGINAL ORDER, not the base or the missing bowl! I think this will be the LAST time I order from Hookah-Hookah.
Next order I got was my package from Exotic Imports - it's a huge mess of Afzal and Stargate coals. Me and 2 friends wanted to try some and it was a VERY good price, under 45$ shipped.
Hookah Company's order is currently trapped in FedEx hell! They have tried twice to deliver it, but no one has been home & since it's FedEx Ground, they can't allow a Pick-Up until after the 3rd failed attempt & only the original sender can change the shipping address. I'm NOT HAPPY! Hopefully I'll get it tomorrow.
That just leaves the Pimp Your Hookah order - I got ahold of him, but he's not put up the items so I can order them, so I'm still WAITING! Argh! Why does shipping anything have to bloody hell!

I typically don’t enjoy coffee flavor, they are often strong and harsh. Havana makes one I love and now I found a Al Waha version I like. This version was lighter in taste to start, about 40-45 min in, the taste started getting stronger and more harsh, like other coffees. Did add some cheap imitation vanilla extract to the base water – it smoothes out the taste more, but doesn’t give a strong vanilla taste.
- A pink MYA QT (w/ 2nd hose adapter)
- Small Candy Pharoh Madgy Zidan
- Large KM Stem
So, most of this stuff is arriving this week - well, not the hookahs, I can't get ahold of PYH to order them. So I have a arseload of stuff coming and guess what, lots of video vendor reviews to do! Peace!
PS: Not all the $$ went toward Hookah stuff, I bought 2 video games, clothes and furniture too! LOL!
Shisha Cut: Med cut, some stems, drippy.
Hookah Type: 22” Eygptian
Bowl: standard Egyptian clay
Foil / Screen: hookah foil
Coal / Amount: 2 coco-nara’s
Smoke: med to thick
Buzz: slight to mild
Smell / Flavor: Smell was a nice sweet candy-like Blueberry. Kinda mouthwatering. Taste was completely different – it reminded me of Fruit Loops. On the inhale you got a sweet Fruit Loop taste, the exhale gave you something else, not overly pleasant. I couldn’t pick out what the taste was either.

It smelt wonderful and others had given it great reviews, but I was disappointed in this flavor. It was a great candy blueberry smell, but the taste was similar to Fruit Loops cereal. Plus, the exhale gave a strange bitter-ish taste that I couldn’t pin-point and by the time I gave up smoking, was rather sick of.
Just to verify that it wasn’t my Hookah that was “adding” flavor, I’m gonna smoke the remainder of the sample from a different rig.

Rating (1 to 10): 5 (myself – other smoker only gave it a 6)
Received as a sample from fellow HP member. Smelt decent, considering I normally dislike watermelon flavors. Reminded me of a Jolly Rancher candy. Taste was very disappointing; it was a sweet candy watermelon taste, but very weak and at times, disappeared completely. In order to produce good thick smoke, had to use windcover, then had to watch as it tried to burn twice. Smoke was strange, thick but not puffy. Felt like it coated my mouth.
It might be good as a mixer, but the flavor was somewhat weak. What flavor there was did last the whole session, which is why it got the score it did.
