“I became a puff promoter because I saw an alternative to tobacco that would not alter or hinder the feel or taste of the sessions I have come accustomed to. Not only do I fully back HeavenLeaf but they have one of my top 3 mints ever!”
Lou has been traveling the world since his toddler years, but after countless journeys, finally settled in Canada. Despite his love of hookah, the current laws have made enjoying the habit an unfortunate challenge that is shared by many. To help out his fellow Canadians and beyond, Lou is developing a YouTube channel that focuses on tobacco alternatives and finding the best hookah products out there, so be on the lookout!
“Set up a bowl, some coal, and shisha, always have foil on the stand by and a clean hookah ready."
For Matthew Desind, hookah takes up the majority of his free time. From watching a movie to playing a game, or spending time with friends, hookah is his go-to for relaxation.
Matt especially keeps his house ready to entertain at all times with hookah prepared, just in case a guest inquires about his hobby, in which he prefers to show rather than explain.
Matt has been a hookah smoker for 13 years, and can still remember the first time he tried watermelon out of a KM. While it was a good time with friends and engaging conversation, he had no idea at that point hookah would turn into not only a hobby, but a passion. A story we at HeavenLeaf can definitely relate to.
From traveling the world and meeting new people, to experiencing different brands, flavors, and smoking styles, hookah has taken Matt on an adventure that has yet to slow. He has been a part of the community hosting podcasts and doing videos, talking about hookah with people that care or are just learning ever since that fateful day with a KM. He finds he can best get to know people with the relaxation encouraged from sitting in a circle enjoying a smoke session.
Matt to our delight is very excited to be working with HeavenLeaf and showing others how to use this product to get the most out of their hookah. Matt makes the point that now is a fun time to be hookah smoker as there are a lot of options, with HeavenLeaf as one more example to showcase what is possible.
"I am a young professional with a vast background in marketing and sales. I grew up in California and currently reside in NY. I have been smoking hookah 5 years and have been around many aspects of the business from manufacturing to working a lounge."
Sally has been a part of the hookah community since 2014, where she started out as a member of HookahPro forums. She is currently a hookah reviewer on YouTube (The Shisha Savage) and active in the Facebook online hookah groups. She hails from Los Angeles, California, but now resides in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
Sally’s hobbies include traveling, cooking, being a foodie, fishing, and being a mixologist. She has been a HeavenLeaf advocate and a happy customer since the brand launched. Her favorite HeavenLeaf Teabacco flavors are strawberry, cheesecake fudge, date, espresso, maple pancake, and peppermint. She loves that when mixed with regular hookah tobacco, not only does it enhance the flavor profiles, but the heat resistant properties of the tea leaves mixed with the tobacco leaves to create longer, more fruitful smoking sessions.
