At Eastern Ray, we boast a very luxurious and extensive shisha hire menu. Below, we discuss the most popular shisha pipes.
Traditional shisha pipes: you cannot go wrong with them. Traditional shisha pipes are imported from Egypt and are made using three different metals. The shisha pipes have a very Middle Eastern look shrouded in mystery and fascination, just as the pyramids and the rich Egyptian history. Traditional shisha pipes come with beautifully hand painted glass vases and neatly embroidered hoses that are pleasant to hold. A traditional shisha pipe is powered by coal sitting on top of a clay bowl. You can select the shisha tobacco flavours on the basis of your preference. We have many different flavours form the leading shisha tobacco suppliers from across the world including Al Fakher, Argelini, Starbuzz, Tangiers, Blue Moon, Nakhla and many more. Choosing your flavours in generally a matter of taste. We recommend that you take into consideration the preferences of your guests. It is normally safe to go for mostly popular flavours with several niche flavours. This way, most of your guests will enjoy the shisha experience and those who are tired of the more mainstream shisha flavours, will enjoy trying something new. It is also good to balance the popular flavours out since taste is subjective and a person who does not like apple may like grape and vice versa. We use natural coconut coals to power the traditional shisha pipes because coconut coals provide greater longevity, more heat and are free from any chemicals that are associated with quick light coals (that contain gun powder).
Fruit Shisha: Fruit shisha pipes come with freshly carved fruit bowls instead of the standard clay bowls. Aesthetically, fruit bowls look more impressive and help to draw guests in to try out the shisha pipe. Practically, fruit bowls help to improve the overall shisha experience because the fruit juice inside the fruit bowl marinates the flavoured shisha tobacco to bring out mature and fine flavours from the tobacco. This can be best compared to marinating your barbeque, when the meat is marinated, it almost always tastes better (excuse the example if you are a vegetarian). Most popular bowls include pineapple, melon and grapefruit.
