White Peach (SB) - Orchard Peach


But I like the stick with water theme that's going on in the thread here.

Kicks all of the recent threads about FroYo and Listerine in the balls.
Yeah, that major thing is for new people to understand that water is the essence of life. And if you're having trouble getting good flavor from your shisha, the liquid in the base isn't the answer. It's just that you need to find a better flavored shisha.

From experienced users (not saying i am one), getting good flavor is never an issue as long as you find the right brand that carries the good flavor. Say if you think AF mint sucked, and you want a stronger mint flavor, don't go out of your way to fix a bad flavor, just buy a new brand and hope that its better to your liking.

Yep, good mantra to follow. What I do for the most part. I've tried so few brands and flavors, that now I've decided to start with a brand, and literally buy every single flavor in small amounts, and start notetaking about what I like and don't like. The search for the ultimate taste/smoke is completely worth the money I'm spending, especially considering that otherwise it would just go towards smoothies, video games, and gas for my car anyway. Riding the bike to work since you spent your last 5 bucks on tobacco is depressing, but I get good exercise.

Well I smoked AF mango the other day and had mango tea in the bottom and it made the smoke taste much better. I've also smoked Coffee with coffee in the base and it was delicious. I've had mint with peppermint oil in the base and it made it even stronger tasting. So you can put stuff in the base but water based.

It's kind of fun to trying to put different stuff in the base but so far have found what works best is water.

I know a lot of people ridicule other people for putting other liquids in the base (I'm a water purist myself) but those of you elitists should probably remember that Sambooka, the creator of the website you're all on, often experiments with putting fruity drinks in his base. So take a minute to step back and let people be free to experiment instead of shoving the 'water only' mantra down their throat.

That said I love the thread TerryAki, and I totally agree!

Yeah don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with experimenting. But like i said before, this is mainly just to put it out there for newbies who think that by adding something in there base, it will make there shisha better. If there shisha sucks, then its there shisha, not the liquid in the base.

Plus i'm one of those people who are all "why fix something that's not broken?" If water is doing a damn good job, why mess with it? Plus i'd really hate to see someone put something in there base and mess something up.

I wish more people would read this thread before starting the debate over "what's the best liquid to put in your base".

I think that it was said best when TerryAki said;
Quote:
exactly, if you're not getting good flavor from your shisha, then its not the base. its your shisha.
If you don't like the flavor of your smoke then use another shisha or blend some flavors together to get a taste that you find suitable.

exactly my brother. i hate how people say "i want to enhance the flavor". What kind of shit are you smoking? I have NEVER once had the thought to "enhance" my smoking experience, because my shisha does the job for me.

I always put water in my base, I think I get a better session. But I don't always drink water when I smoke LOL. My thread was more about matching your favorite shisha with your favorite drink .
