Unwashed Shisha

The holiday season is upon us and with that comes shopping. We are here to help you pick the right shisha for yourself or maybe someone else. If you are new to hookah then the term washed and unwashed may be a bit foreign to you. If that is the case then you have come to the right place.

So what exactly is unwashed shisha?

Unwashed shisha is essentially unprocessed tobacco. Being “unwashed” gives it a slightly elevated level of nicotine content due to the fact that this hasn’t been washed out. The nicotine content can vary from brand to brand as well. Some of the most potent unwashed brands out there would most certainly be Nakhla and Hookafina Blak. If you are looking for a buzz then these two are right up your alley. Hookafina Blak will also have more of an earthy tobacco taste to it due to it being a black leaf tobacco. The methods and techniques used to produce this tobacco date back to some of the first methods used to produce shisha in the Middle East. The tobacco is first hand cut into small strips and then mixed with dark molasses under pressurized heat. After that the flavor is added and the tobacco is left to sit. If you are looking for a strong and robust smoke this is definitely a brand to check out.
