Nargilla is a named used in Israel (it has lots of names) for long, brass water pipes with a glass base. Smoking tobacco with a nargilla is a part of Arab culture. Locally, in cafes in Abu Gosh, the Old City, and in East Jerusalem one can order coffee or tea and smoke a nargilla. The tobacco mixture is placed in the cup on the top and covered with foil. Then hot coals are placed on top of the foil. You draw the smoke from the long tube. The smoke is light and pleasant. I think that it smells sweet and good. The length that the smokes travels and the water helps cool and filter the smoke.
