The Hookah or Shisha pipe is a great way to enjoy your favourite herbal mixture or tobacco product, its origins are slightly lost in time, but it is widely accepted that it was invented in 16th century mediaeval India.
Originally used by many cultures to enjoy hashish or cannabis, the use more generally has favoured tobacco, which may have been flavoured by soaking in molasses for example. With opinion increasingly turning away from tobacco, the use of vaping or e-cigarettes has become very fashionable. E liquid used in these products, which can have many flavours including imitation tobacco, is heated and the user inhales the vapour produced.
Recently a new product has emerged which was the invention of some German engineers who also happened to be hookah enthusiasts. We smokers are all aware of the smoking bans imposed in premises here in the UK; this also applies to most of Continental Europe too. In order to overcome this ban, as well as enjoying using a hookah, these engineers produced Shiazo Shish Steam Stones.
These natural stones are very small and extremely porous which are injected with glycerine, together with aromatic fluids which imparts flavour. In the same way that tobacco or herbal mixtures work, when the stones are heated in the hookah, steam is produced similar to vaping and the result is an intense vapour which can be inhaled and enjoyed.
In the same way as E-cigarettes, Shiazo Shisha Steam Stones are regarded as a healthier way to enjoy a smoke, even in public buildings, although we have to say that there are some that do not understand the difference between steam and smoke!
The Shiazo Shisha Steam Stones are now available on offer from us at £4.99 in four pleasant flavours of Mango, Mint, Raspberry, Strawberry.
