Shisha smoking is a relaxing activity that is performed almost daily in many cultures. However, it is not only a social activity but there is also a true art form associated with it, that of smoke blowing. Smoke blowing involves creating beautiful smoke clouds and shapes using the shisha. In this blog, we will explain how you can master the technique of smoke blowing.
Prepare the shisha with the right tobacco
You can simply prepare the shisha as you would always prepare it. This means you fill the vase with water, add the tobacco, coals and foil. However, what is important when preparing the shisha when you want to blow smoke is not to press the tobacco onto the tobacco head too firmly. This is because there needs to be room for good airflow so that you can blow enough smoke. To create impressive clouds of smoke, you need to use the right tobacco. There are different types of shisha tobacco available, each with its own flavor and texture. For smoke blowing, we recommend using tobacco that is thick and moist, as this increases the clouds of smoke and makes the flavor more intense. The best quality shisha tobacco can be bought at specialized stores such as Amy Deluxe.
Start the shisha
You start the shisha by taking a deep puff. To blow smoke, it is important to hold the smoke you inhale in your mouth for a while. There is no need to inhale the smoke. Once you have the smoke in your mouth, you can start forming smoke circles. Blow out the smoke in powerful, controlled bursts and try to blow out the smoke as slowly as possible while keeping the shape. You can experiment with different shapes such as rings, triangles and circles.
If you want to master smoke blowing, it is important that you practice a lot. It can take quite a while before you master smoke blowing and can actually create beautiful figures. Keep practicing and experiment with different techniques and tobaccos to see what works best for you.
