Hookah is a tobacco consumption method that has been popular in the Middle East and Asian countries for centuries. Also called "hookah", hookah is used especially in social settings and offers relaxation and an enjoyable experience for many. The history of hookah goes back to ancient times and has survived to the present day by undergoing changes over the centuries.
The origins of shisha go back to India and Persian Empires. B.C. The hookah, which emerged in India in the 16th century, brought a different dimension to tobacco consumption. At that time, hookah was generally popular with courtiers and the wealthy, and was generally considered a privilege offered to the sultan or the nobility.
The popularity of shisha spread to the Middle East over time and reached its peak during the Ottoman Empire. The hookah culture, which was established in Istanbul of the Ottoman Empire in the 16th century, transformed tobacco consumption from a mere habit into a social experience. Smoking hookahs in Ottoman palaces and coffeehouses became a common activity among the upper classes of society.
Thanks to the filtering effect of the water in the hookah, it provides a softer tobacco consumption. This results in tobacco smoke creating a cooling sensation. This feature allows the hookah to be used for relaxation and enjoyment. Also, hookahs are often designed to appeal to multiple users, making them a social experience.
Although shisha design and construction have changed over time, its basic components have generally remained the same. A hookah consists of a bottle, a lance, a lance and a hose. The bowl is filled with specially prepared tobacco and flavored substances. The mouthpiece placed in your mouth ensures that the smoke is transmitted to the consumer.
