REVIEW: Al Fakher Lemon with Mint

Bowl Used: Triple Hose Maju
Foil:  Reynolds Wrap, double fold
Water Base: Ice water.
Coal Configuration: Three 33mm Three Kings Coal
Cut of the Tobacco: Undyed shredded shisha. Extremely wet. No stems from what I got.
Smell: The smell is a very natural lemon and mint scent. It's bang on with the scent. It smells a lot like Lemon with Mint hot tea that you'd drink when you're sick.
Flavor: The taste has medium body and it is bang on as well. It tastes just like it smells.
Smoke:  Smoke is weak, it never got even NEAR smokes I get from Starbuzz or HookahHookah.
Longevity: Everything lasted me about an hour and a half.
Overall thoughts: The smell and taste is really bang on. I removed some points for the extremely wet nature of the shisha and how surprised I was to see how QUICK it got hot. I figured with wet shisha, I'd need 3 coals, but it was over kill and it got way too hot way too quick. Bummer.

RATING: 8.5/10
