When you acclimate shisha do you just pack the bowl and leave it for a while, or just open the bag and let it breathe?
Sorry to be a noob!
It's not exactly acclimating, it's just letting the flavor settle down, it may smell odd from excessive cold or excessive heat, but Nakhla isn't a Dark tobacco and is very light, so acclimation is really not necessary. Mix it up and let it sit open for a little, should be good in an hour or less.
I am sure even though it smells off, it will taste fine.
