its not a QC issue, it is how the tobacco is reacting to the dew point/humidity, eric can explain the scientific reason in very good detail, and for the most part acclimating it will make it smoke perfectly fine, some times there are issues but same with every other shisha. the package gives you instructions on it how to acclimate and says you may get that smell but acclimating should resolve it.
the unwashed nature of it is causing the issues, the lucid line which is washed (other than that it is the same) doesnt have the issues, at least i have not heard of them
