Re: First Tangiers Experience
I seem to recall my first experience with Tangiers was Cool Strawberry. It's been a while, but I'm sure that I didn't get it right (probably underpacked) and thought the flavor was a little weak. Determined to persevere, I moved onto Brambleberry the next day and followed the packing instructions found in this forum. It was great. Kinda like the first time I listened to a CD back in the 80's or watched a Blu-Ray movie -- experience was familiar but just better.
I don't get buzzed and I don't get a throat tickle. I never had a bowl that tasted like bar-b-cue in hundreds and hundreds of sessions, and maybe a dozen flavors. I smoke everyday and it's Tangiers probably 75% of the time, with the remainder being Nakhla or AF (which I thoroughly enjoy too).
