Hookah Fans! We've just received our very first shipment of Haze Natural Coconut Hookah Coals and they can already easily be compared to some of the top hookah coals in the industry.
One of the great claims to fame for Haze coconut coals is that they burn longer and burn hotter than the competition; a bold claim, to be sure! Luckily, we carry "the competition" at Hookah Company, so we decided to put this claim to the test, for science reasons!
The Test: We pitted Haze coals against what is currently our most popular brand of natural coconut hookah coals, Titanium Coals. Doing a side-by-side comparison from charcoal to ash, just to test each coal's longevity and durability. We tested longevity by comparing the size reduction of the coals over time.
Without the proper thermometer, we weren't able to effectively test the exterior temperature of the coals, but that test is coming in the future! Nonetheless, the results of this experiment were very interesting!
Keep in mind, we only ran one test, so some of the results we got may vary from session to session - but overall, we can definitely draw a few conclusions from our first experiment.
Over the next 20 minutes or so, there were no major changes. The Titanium coals seemed to burn at the same rate as Haze through this time period, which is great for Titanium lovers since this time period is when the hookah really begins to open up. At about 45 minutes, we blew the coal dust off of each, and that's when something interesting happened: the Titanium crumbled apart on us! At this point it is necessary to say that it is not uncommon for Titanium coals to fall apart after being heated and handled for nearly an hour. This is a common criticism of Titanium coals but it doesn't necessarily negatively affect the hookah session.
After a full hour, our Titanium coals were dying out, mainly because they fell apart. Again, this is not uncommon and even the broken pieces of coal can provide heat to your shisha. However, if we were smoking an actual bowl of hookah and 3 Titaniums crumbled, well, it's time for a second round of coals. Whereas 3 in tact Haze coals could easily provide another 10-15 minutes to your session before needed to heat up some more.
