Re: Harsh Tangiers
That sounds more like harsh smoke. The tickle is more in the back of the throat and it's kinda like an after effect, ie. inhale cool smoke, exhale, throat tickle. When the initial tickle is strong though it can start after or toward the end of the inhale.
It might be hard to tell if you were getting clouds because you said you could barely take a hit. If you suspect it is underpacked, then just take off the foil, add a little juicy moassel to the top (not much), reapply foil and try heating again. If it's too much heat. Try building up to temperature instead of starting hot and backing off. That'll help give you a better sense of where the sweet spot is at.
