Water pipes are the perfect way to enhance the flavor of your favorite tobacco. For those that enjoy puffing away on different flavors once in a while, these glass pipes will enhance the flavor, and the effect, of any tobacco. A glass pipe is easier to clean than a pipe constructed of other materials and glass is non-porous which means it will not stain or leave hard to remove resin.
The water pipes have been around for centuries. Although the exact history cannot be traced, many people believe that the Indians were the first to use the water pipe. Commonly referred to as a "peace pipe," these apparati make a bubbling sound internally as the user takes a draw from the pipe.
Using a water pipe with flavored tobacco of any kind will enhance the flavor. Try adding fruit juice to the water pipe instead of water for an additional burst of flavor. Many glass pipes of today are made from hand blown glass and are one piece. These pipes generally come in a variety of vibrant colors that are enhanced when the black tar and other resin collects inside the pipe. A glass pipe will not affect the flavor of any tobacco because it is not porous as plastic and wood are. Changing the type of tobacco you smoke frequently will not affect the flavor. In addition, glass is easier to clean because it is not capable of letting the black tar or resin set into the material. As long as you are careful to not drop this pipe, it will last a lifetime.
Water pipes and glass pipes come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. From the smallest pipe that is not much larger than a cigarette to the most extravagant water pipe, such as the hookah, these pipes have been used by many people around the world for centuries. With the introduction of tailor made cigarettes, tobacco pipes have taken a back seat in the smoking industry. The fact is, tobacco that is consumed through a pipe is much cheaper than a pack of cigarettes and you can choose from a wide variety of flavors. Cigarettes only come in menthol and regular flavors.
Regardless of which method you choose to smoke tobacco, the glass pipe or water pipe, glass is the way to go. It's non-porous and easier to clean and sanitize than pipes made of other materials such as wood. Pipe tobacco come in all types of flavors that you cannot get with a cigarette.
