The origins of the Hookah date back to the Mughal era and it still is widely used today, more or less in the same form. The Hookah or Huqqa is actually a water pipe that is used to smoke special, sweetened or flavored tobacco, often just referred to as Shisha. These special flavors tend to sweeten the taste and the aroma of the hookah tobacco, making it more appealing to people.
With the wide variety of flavor-options, smoking from a hookah pipe gained and still gains popularity. Thanks to the hookah-craze, hookah lounges are popping up all around the country in big cities. People who were never aware of this exotic pipe are now trying it and getting “hoohked” (see what we did there?) on the whole experience!
