If I hadn’t known what flavor to expect, I wouldn’t have been able to guess that this was Mango. It smelt great, but the taste was very faint. What few wisps of taste you did get, you could figure out what it was supposed to be, but those wisps were few and far between.

A good taste, but nothing like a Banana Split. I thought it tasted more like Cola than anything else, with a slight banana taste in the background. There was vanilla at time, but that’s about it. Eh, it was alright, but I wouldn’t pay the price of Rommans for it.

Romman Chocolate Review

Romman Chocolate

Shisha Cut: fine, dark brown in color. Moist, not drippy.

Hookah Type: MYA QT, 22” Egyptian

Duration: 45min

Bowl: standard clay, MYA

Foil / Screen: foil + windcover

Coal / Amount: 2” Exotica, 1 Golden QL

Smoke: medium to thick

Buzz: none

Smell / Flavor: Smell – defiantly chocolate. No second-guessing, it was a cross between Tootsie rolls and Heresy bars. Taste – BIG DISAPOINTMENT. Doesn’t live up to the Hersey, but favors the Tootsie rolls.

Rating (1 to 10): 4

A decent flavor, but a big disappointment if you were looking for a solid chocolate flavor. Smells lovely, but unless you like Tootsie rolls, this flavor will be a let down. It’s alright as far as chocolates go, but it’s not the grand-daddy CHOCOLATE that I’ve been looking for. I can safely say, you can pass this over if your looking for a true chocolate.

Duration: 1hr 35min
Bowl: MYA
Foil / Screen: foil
Coal / Amount: 1.5” Exotica + windcover

Smell / Flavor: Smell – faint but definite raspberry. Not candy-like, but more like the real fruit. Taste – light, but good raspberry taste. Slightly sweet.

Rating (1 to 10): 7

First time trying Baja brand, this is was a good kick-off. It has a stronger smell & taste than Layalina Raspberry, although not as drippy (which is alittle surprising). Not the strongest taste, but still very noticeable and long lasting.

Rating (1 to 10): 8

This is a great flavor – lightly sweet fruit w/ the lightest hint of mint. Everybody who has tried this has liked it. Produced great smoke, little to no buzz and lasted the entire time it was smoked. One of the few flavors I would give serious consideration of repurchasing.

MYA QT Hookah Review

MYA QT Hookah

Price – between $39.95 and $54.99
Hoses – standard 1, can be converted to 2 with adapter
Size – small, only 14” tall
Colors – Smoke, Aqua, Dk Blue, Green, Pink, Red

Ordered from H-S, came with MANY extras: tongs, metal screen, mouthtips, filters, 2 rolls of Golden QL, 2 50g Romman sample packs, hookah cleaning rod, silicon base protector, windcover and wire carrying cage. I also ordered an Auto-Seal adapter to turn it into a 2-hose hookah if & when I wanted. They offer a 2-hoser from the get go, but I wanted the ability to change is from 1 to 2 anytime I want.


  • Small in size, easy to carry around. Came with wire carrying cage that everything will fit into
  • Solid 1 piece cast stem. Appears to be made from brass (?)
  • Purge valve & hose port easily removable
  • Downstem unscrews
  • Glass base is wide for it’s size, thus very stable
  • Will work with MYA hoses or wider hoses (Nammor or Razen) without modification


  • Glass base is problem prone. First base that arrived had hair-line crack along base bottom. Leaked badly. Second base didn’t leak, but was visibly ugly. Air pockets, surface folds and an internal crack mar the beauty of the base.
  • Stem is hollow, heart is a common chamber
  • Auto-seal system (hose adapter) works… but only when 2 A-S adapters are purchased.
  • Hose grommet is SMALL and different shaped than typical. Hard to fit in normal grommet.
  • Bowl grommet is pathetic – wet paper towels work better.

Other than the leaking base, I have had no other problems with my new hookah. The wire cage works, but the handle must be removed to fit the base inside – which also doesn’t fit w/ the silicon protector on. It’s a nice small hookah, smokes as well as my others. It doesn’t seem to make the smoke much harsher than my 22” Egyptian, which never bothered me.

Time will tell if the hollow stem & common chamber will be issues, but so far clearing the base isn’t much harder that most of my other hookahs. The smoke purge valve is large and removable, but can be a pain. I love the feel of the stem too…any hookah stem heavy enough to be used as a weapon always scores well with me.

I was a little annoyed the bowl grommet didn’t work (bowl would pop off mid smoke) but any good hookah’er should have back-ups. Remarkably you can use Nammors and Razens with this little hookah. The short wide base makes for a stable rig and even with 2 Nammors plugged in, it wasn’t even trying to tip.

All in all, for a “cheap” under $50 hookah, it seems to rank up well to my others. It’s no Syrian or KM, but for what it is, it’s more than enough. The only word of caution I will offer is this: baby the base! No HOT water, no ICE COLD water without tempering. No dropping, kicking, and knocking it around either. For a “travel” type hookah, the base is remarkably fragile. It’s one BIG flaw.

Score: 7 out of 10


Yes, for a starter hookah, it’s great. For people who are used to taller, larger rigs, they may be happy with it, but it’s all dependent of the person. As a travel hookah – iffy, I would suggest getting a case to replace the cage, as the base is somewhat fragile. All in all – a good little hookah!

Rating (1 to 10): 2

This was my second try at Al Ajamy. This flavor had a sweet fruit smell, but not a definite cherry smell. Similar to mixed fruit flavors. The taste was the biggest letdown – there was NONE! It produces nice smoke, had a mild buzz, but NO TASTE?!? By itself it’s basically worthless, but I can see a use for this as a mixer in other brands.

Fusion Banana Review

Bowl: MYA
Foil / Screen: foil + windcover
Coal / Amount: 1.5 Golden QL + windcover

Smell / Flavor: Smell was a candy-like banana, similar to Runts candy. The taste started the same, but turned into a Banana Bread type taste after 30min.

I was told this was a good banana and it is, but I like Sahara brand’s better. A nice sweet candy Banana, it turned into a Banana Bread taste after 30min. Not bad by all means, just unexpected. Good thing, the taste lasted until the end, even when it got harsh (too much heat) and it recovered well.
