How to mix tobacco: popular and interesting recipes for making hookah
The rules of taste: how to combine tobacco
If you want to get a delicious mix that will delight you with its aroma, you need to follow certain rules. They are quite simple, but many users do not listen to them, and then wonder why the hookah has a strange taste. Follow these guidelines:
- Initially, you need to break the mix into 2 components: the main flavor and the additional. The main flavor should always be more.
- The main mistake is strict proportions of 1: 1. Most tobaccos will interrupt each other. The perfect mix has some basic notes and additional notes. Then the taste is revealed correctly.
- The main aroma is recommended to choose from fruit flavors. This is an optional rule, but if you want a rich, saturated tobacco, follow this recommendation. Agree, the taste of mint in the first place will simply kill the aroma of the second tobacco, and the mix will not work.
- Exotic fruits, mono-flavors (coffee, vanilla) or unusual aromas that almost never smoke in their pure form (licorice, jasmine, mint) can supplement the mixes.
- The main taste should be up to 80%, the maximum amount of additional flavor is 40%. Then the mix will be harmonious and not aggressive.
- The most pleasant mix consists of 2 tobaccos. The maximum number of flavors that can be mixed is 4, if there are more, they simply merge into one incomprehensible aroma.
- The taste of hookah can be improved if you add liquid to the flask, or make a cup of fruit. For lovers of special sensations, it is recommended to try a cup of vegetables, and add unusual drinks to the flask, such as hot tea, strong alcohol and others.
- You can experiment with tobacco by mixing various components. It can be spices, pieces of fruit, zest. But in this case, their number should be minimal to give a light, barely noticeable aroma. Otherwise, the hookah will be damaged.
These are the main recommendations for making a delicious hookah. But there is another important rule: no matter what mix you use, it is not encyclopedic. You can improve it, change the proportions. Pick the most interesting connections for yourself. Hookah driving is somewhat reminiscent of alchemy or potions.
