Wink Homemade tobacco-free shisha mint !!!

Hello guys,
I'm here today to tell you about something. I just did a shisha with dried mint leaves, water, and fake juice strawberry flavored ( thick, sticky sweet thing you add to water to have a sweet drink )
The mint flavor was incredible!!! Fresh and keeping your mouth feeling the mint even after the smoke. However the smoke wasn't really thick and white as expected. I only had a tiny amount to try. During 2 hits , the smoke was a little white but not at all like a real hookah.
Now guys, my goal is not to give up.
I'm here to create the perfect blend for a delicious and smoky hookah.
If I had more shisha, it would probably have made more smoke right ?
In addition to the dried mint leaves, what should I use ? The flavored sweet thing isn't probably a good idea. I'm sure it's possible to have great smoke with mint leaves tho. My goal is a non-tobacco shisha. However, if you need tobacco to have creamy and huge clouds, then I'll maybe add some. But I don't want really want to.
Thank you, any advice is welcome !
I'll keep you in touch with the results

Try adding a little bit of vegetable glycerin.

Trust me go out and buy some. Its inexpensive. Its also how you can get the crazy thunder clouds. Dont use too much though or you will destroy the flavor.

Honey or molasses would help. once again dont oversaturate the additives.

First and most important thing you need to know about making mint flavored shisha, is that you NEVER want to make it out of actual mint leaves. The reason? Well, its because mint leaves when burned (and you know that shisha often gets slightly bunt due to poor heat managment) will produce irritating smoke.

The smoke will not only rape your lungs, but has also been known to cause severe lung/airway irritation all the way up to lung inflammation.

This doesn't mean you cant use mint leaves, you just have to extract the natural flavor in it, and DISCARD the plant material (leaves/stalk/everything else).

So what should be the ingredients then ? I wish it could be lemon skins tiny peels and then I add a mint extract. Does that sounds like a good idea ? What should be the main solid ingredient in my tobacco-free shisha then ? Thanks ! Maybe tea ?

Tea will work fine as a medium, just wash it until there is no tea flavor left (you do this by boiling the tea leaves and draining the water. repeated several times).

You can also let it soak in some mint infused water so that it absorbs the natural mint flavor.

Thanks !
So my recipe will be :
Tea
Honey
Vegetable glycerin
Infused mint (---> to add to the tea)

Would tea from tea bags would work ? I think it would, I can't see why not.
Anyway guys I'll make a post to let you know about this experiment.

Sure, but I suggest buying whole leaf tea, for better texture.
