    Shisha is a water pipe or hookah used for smoking fruity tobaccos. Idk exactly why Inawera deems these their shisha line but I assume it’s the type that would be used to portray one of these fruit tobaccos, when mixed with tobacco etc. They resemble shisha vaping. Someone might have a better answer.

    I don't know what it means to the brands but to me it means a stronger flavor note that is perfect for boosting another similar flavor. I don't mix anything strawberry without adding INW sb shisha. Shisha tobaccos are strongly flavored, more so than snuff.

    Yea, I know what shisha is - hence why I think tobacco when I see those flavors

    I’ll do that next trial run. I added .6 of fig and put the bottle in the ultrasonic (dry) and treated it as a shake and vape. It neutralized the strength of the pear and brought back some floral notes. Needs some fixing, but this batch is tasty, just not what I was aiming for.

    Probably not for everyone, like all flavors. I don’t use any sort of pipes, tobaccos or tobacco flavors and I love them. There isn’t any sort of tobacco flavor. I guess the fruit, or vanilla, flavors used in these types of pipes are rather distinct. They aren’t fresh fruit or sweet fruit really. They’re just different. Smooth comes to mind when I think of them. I believe this is the hardest time I’ve had yet describing any flavors!

    I do use some tobaccos in some of my mixes. Not so much for the tobacco flavor, but they seem to add some body, when used at a very small percent. Usually about 1%, although Black Honey Tobacco doesn't taste like tobacco even at 5.

    One mix that I always have brewed I call "Honey Dragon Tea" (while not terribly creative, I tend to name my mixes with something that will remind me of what they are :facepalm:. )

    All 5%, adjust to taste, of course :)
    And all TFA

    Black Honey Tobacco
    Dragonfruit
    Green Tea.

    My take on fig... tastes like spicy raisin. Spicy like mulled cider, not like cayenne

    I have a dragon fruit and a kiwi. I’ll double check the brand, added those to the suddenly bulging list.

    Believe your df is FLV and kiwi may be INW or Fa.

    Comparing my INW Shisha cinnamon to FA cinnamon ceylon I was thinking they must be weak. Maybe they're meant to be single flavors. I'm not that far into the mixing experiments yet though.

    I use TFA. I've heard FA is good.

    Cinnamon ceylon is the ultimate cinnamon in the diy world is my understanding. For me the shisha are more an additive than a forward flavor.

    I'm still vaping my gin. Despite the pine tree I'm rather enjoying it because it isn't too sweet. This mix does have WS-23 in it. Does anyone find that using the cooling agents helps to lessen sweetness? I never used koolada or WS-23 much at all but several of the new mixes I've done do include WS-23.
