Most of the times, people don’t take the cleaning part of the process seriously. The lack of a proper cleaning procedure can be very dangerous to your health. So, before you start anything, make sure you separate all the components of your hookah and wash them with clean and lukewarm water.
You should also use a clean brush to remove any kind of residue, germs or dirt left. After this, pat-dry all the components with a towel or leave them to dry in the open air. Now when the first step is done, you have a clean and harmless hookah to proceed with.
The first thing that you should do is fill the vase with water. But do not fill it completely, fill the vase just enough to cover the metal stem by 2.5cm. How much metal stem you should cover will depend on the size of your hookah. Just keep in mind that you should leave space for air in the vase, which is extremely important as it will help you to draw the smoke easily.
Using cold water in the vase is recommended as it makes the experience more pleasurable. The cold water also makes the smoke denser, which increases the satisfaction of the user. So, leave some space for air in the vase and use cold water for the best experience of our best hookah flavors.
Insert Down Stem
After you are done with the vase, now it is time to insert the hookah stem into the vase. This hookah shaft contains the stem which should be dipped into the water. The shaft should perfectly fit on the vase. It should be firmly fixed. If it’s not firmly airtight, it will be difficult to pull in the smoke. This will also result in the thinness of the smoke, which is not quite enjoyable.
There are holes made to connect the hoses on the side of the shaft. Just like the vase, they should also be completely and perfectly airtight. In some models, the hoses are sealed tight but if they are open and you are smoking alone then make sure to cover them by attaching all the hoses. Before connecting the hoses, re-check the water levels in the vase. Make sure it is at a perfect level, to savor the best hookah flavors.
To examine the airflow, you should place your hand on top of the stem to stop the air coming from outside and inhale through one hose. If you experience air while inhaling, then this means that one of the hoses is not completely airtight.
After everything is checked, place the plate/tray above the stem. Its purpose is to collect any burnt coals that fall in any case.
Flavor in Bowl
Now it’s time for the most delightful part, the flavor of the hookah. To get yourself the best hookah flavors visit our website where we offer the Guide on Choosing Best Hookah Flavors. Now, take your desired flavor and gently squeeze it, sprinkle it on top of the head of the hookah and then slightly stir it. Make sure to separate every part by fluffing the flavor for the air to be easily passed through it.
After the fluffed flavor is put in the bowl, lightly tap it around the walls. Make sure to not cover the holes in the middle of the bowl with flavor as the open holes would allow the air to easily flow through the flavor.
Now, cover the flavor with heavy-duty foil. If you have low quality or standard quality foil, use two while wrapping, with the shiny side of the foil facing downward. After completely wrapping it, take a needle or a toothpick and make few small holes in the foil at the top. Make sure that the holes are not big. Even if you are using the best hookah flavors but not doing the basics right, you will not be able to enjoy it.
Now, place the foil-wrapped-bowl with the flavor, on top of the hookah stem.
The hookah is flawlessly set now, and everything is perfectly done, it is now time to light up the coals. Normally, people use three coals which are considered to be the ideal amount. You can light up the three coals and place them above the head which is wrapped with foil. Make sure there is space between each coal when placed.
Space would allow an easy pathway for the air to flow. Your hookah should look something like this by now. Two hoses attached, one for you and one for your friend to enjoy the best hookah flavors together.
Now that everything is set, the final step awaits you. In this stage, you will gently inhale through the hose. As you inhale, your breath pulls air through the coals, which would light them up.
Do not take deep long breaths as they will be harmful to your health by filling your lungs with smoke and cause you to cough. Take small normal puffs.
If no smoke appears, take sharp puffs to light up the hookah flavors, sometimes, it can take time.
Well, your hookah is ready. Sit back, relax and go with the flow. Enjoy!
