  4. Add water to the base or some liquid such as juice mixed with alcohol. Few people prefer adding ice, but it is not advisable as it may cool down the smoke fast making it harsh.
  5. Insert the pipe’s neck in the base with semi-filled water. Get a good seal for a snug fit as the better the seal is, the thicker the smoke gets
  6. Slot in the hose to neck’s side and connect it.
  7. Lastly add the ceramic bowl to the pipe’s top, unless you get a big pipe to sit and easily reach
  8. Now bring the actual flavoured tobacco and put it in ceramic bowl. Unwrap the shisha and fill the bowl as per the duration you want to smoke for.
  9. Now you require a tin foil to cover the ceramic foil.
  10. Now get a needle or a pin and make as many holes as you want.
  11. Now pick the coal and just light it with a lighter and wait till it stops fizzing and place it carefully on the top of the foil
  12. Now you can inhale via the hose till smoke bubbles down through the water from the pipe.
