The oriental water pipe or hookah has its origins in Arabian countries but has gotten more and more popular here also. This waterpipe consists of a waterfilled glass body, a stem with an ashtray and a hose. Even though that sounds like a complicated construction, it is easily disassembled for transportation. Smoking a hookah is usually a very social event since the tobacco lasts rather long and the hose can be passed to others (or you get a pipe with several hoses). Also, the bubbles and the sweet flavored smoke create a very relaxing and cozy atmosphere, which is very appealing to many. In addition, the smoke is not as rough in your throat as with a regular cigarette because the water cools it down. And there is a large variety of flavored tobacco available. So it's no wonder that there are so many aficionados of the oriental waterpipe!
If you are looking for a hookah now, go to our hookah/oriental waterpipe Shop. We carry hookahs of varying sizes and designs. There are waterpipes from 40cm up to 80cm and there are pipes with two or three hoses that can be smoked by several people simultaneously. Then there is a wide rante of hookah accessories and equipment available, such as hoses and bowls. You'll also find small spare parts like mouthpieces, grommets and coal pliers, further hookah bags for transportation and wind covers to protect the coal.
In the category 'accessories' there are hookah cleaners and brushes for stems and glass. We also have a large selection of tobacco from different manufacturers. To keep your waterpipe tobacco moist, you can get glycerin or a special kind of flavored honey molasses. Of course there is charcoal available, too, usually in tablets. Should the glass parts of your oriental waterpipe, the stem or the water bodies, break—don't worry, you can choose from our selection. And if you want to start from scratch, then just get the whole set!
