Al Fakher Mint

This is the classic standard by which all mint shisha flavors are judged. This is the perfect balance and blend of minty flavor; a cooling effect and a good tobacco strength. Your personal preference may gravitate to more or less any of these attributes: flavor, cooling, nicotine strength. However the hookah community has spoken and has decreed this is the best place to start your mint shisha journey of discovery.

Azure Bermuda Mint

A refreshing blend of mints. Not too much peppermint, not too much spearmint…just a great blend of mint. I would recommend the Azure Gold line for a bowl all on its own. But, if you want to add a refreshing splash of mint with an extra kick, go for the dark leaf. The choice is yours.

Trifecta shisha tobaccoTrifecta shisha tobacco

Trifecta Twice The Ice

This is a strong menthol forward mint prepared primarily for the cooling sensation it adds to the smoke. This has a sweet flavor but not a rich minty-ness. It’s all about the cold-throat feel. Expect a medium-to-strong nicotine strength depending on your heat level with your charcoal.

Trifecta Twice The Ice X

Since the arms race for the coldest mint shisha ever took off…Twice the Ice Xtreme was released for the most extremely possible chilling effect.  A great mixer, and a must-have at any lounge, it’s not the best for a bowl of 100% “death by ice”. Expect a medium to strong nicotine strength, depending on your heat level with your coals.

Trifecta Death By Ice

You get the ice cold smoke of Twice the Ice X but within a dark leaf tobacco; so you get a higher nicotine content and more tobacco undertones.

Tangiers shisha tobaccoTangiers shisha tobacco

Tangiers Cane Mint

The granddaddy of all powerful mints. This is a strong peppermint blast that’s very cold. Each inhale is colder and colder not to mention it’s coming from a high-nicotine content tobacco. This mint is a global sensation with die-hard fans. You can get this in the classic Noir Tangiers, with extra strong nicotine in the Burley line, or the smoother experience of the Birquq Tangiers.
