Default Re: Question about after taste...

check the bowl...I know you said you are cleaning it, but sometimes if you are mistakenly burning your shisha, you'll soon have residue in the bowl, is black, dark, and you may be burning that with with your shisha, tainting the taste...

Another thought is have you recently used anything in the base? MILK for example? I had a bad experience at a friends house who i guess forgot to wash the bowl after a smoke where he mixed a bit of cream and milk into the base (for a thicker, creamy smoke texture) and let it sit a day. I guess he thought just washing it out after a hot summers day would suffice.... SOUR!

So clean clean clean. If your still really stuck with lemon juice and baking soda, try apple vinegar. let it sit for an hour and then wash it out with lemon juice and baking soda again to get the taste may be there for a smoke slightly, but the vinegar is my last resort if I just can't clean it enough...
