Using a hookah

Getting started:

Take a small pinch of tobacco and place it into the clay bowl.  We recommend 5-8 grammes of tobacco per smoke (make sure the tobacco is not too compact, spread the tobacco out so air can circulate).
Take a small square of aluminium foil, big enough to cover the open top of the bowl.  Wrap the foil over the top so that the surface is tight.  Use a pin to punch a small group of tiny holes in the foil.
Check that the glass base is approximately two thirds full of water so that the end of the metal tube is submerged.  Make sure you leave a small chamber at the top of the water for the smoke to settle.
Light and place your charcoal on the foil.
The hookah is now ready to smoke - a couple of long draws to begin with should start the tobacco burning and the smoke flowing.

Further tips:

Try putting ice in the glass base of your hookah and get the water ice cold before smoking.  This makes for a smoother more enjoyable smoking experience.
Try mixing lemon juice, orange juice, or some other flavours into the water in your glass base.  It will enhance the taste of your smoke.
For a sweeter and perhaps more flavourful smoke, you can add some wine to the top two inches of the water in the base of your hookah.  It's a happier smoke, and you can really taste the wine.
When you first start smoking your hookah, try placing the charcoal on the outside of the bowl and working it around the edges of the bowl.  The centre of the bowl should be the last place your charcoal is placed.
It is best to refrigerate your tobacco and make sure it remains in an airtight container once it has been opened.  This will keep the tobacco from drying up and losing its flavour.
