Cigarette holder – The cigarette holder is connected to the end of the hose.

Before we start using the hookah pipe we first need to assemble it

Fill the hookah base with water. Fill the vase-like base halfway with water. This will act as a filter.

Attach the hookah stem to the base. One end of the stem attaches to the hookah base you just filled with water. Make sure the connection is secured air tight.

Attach the hookah bowl to the top of the stem. The bowl is where the shisha tobacco will be placed. Also seal this connection completely.

Cover the bowl with foil. Take heavy duty aluminum foil and tightly wrap the bowl, sealing the edges. This will hold the charcoals.

Poke holes in the foil. Use a hookah poker tool to poke holes all over the foil. The holes allow the heat to reach the tobacco.

Attach the hookah hose. Securely connect one end of the hose to the stem. The other end will have the mouthpiece.

Add charcoal and tobacco. Fill the bowl halfway with shisha tobacco. Light the charcoals and carefully place them atop the foil.

Once the foil is in place, use a hookah poker or something similar like a toothpick to poke holes all over the foil. This will allow airflow for the smoke to be pulled through the tobacco and the hookah. Poke holes evenly across the entire surface of the foil.

With the holes poked, your bowl is ready for the hot coals! Here we need to remind you that for the best smoking effect, we recommend that before placing the coals on the hookah bowl, always make sure that the coals are fully lit and give out an even red color. The benefits of this are that it allows the tobacco to be heated and smoke produced more evenly, and avoids the occurrence of unpleasant burnt tastes.

Then Place the charcoal in the head, being careful not to touch the tobacco. Set the charcoal with the red hot side facing down towards the tobacco. Situate the coals on opposite sides of the head.

Wait 3-5 minutes before drawing from the pipe. This allows the tobacco to heat up gradually. At this time you can slowly smoke from the hookah. We generally like to let the smoke circulate in the mouth for a second or two to cool down , and then inhale Lungs,This little trick can not only improve the smoothness of the smoke and reduce harshness, but also allows you to taste the various flavors in the smoke, thereby bringing you an intense sense of satisfaction.
