Re: Just getting into Hookah
QL, or Quick lights are usually made with a gunpowder type of substance which causes them to light faster. Sometimes these coals can give off a chemical taste when smoking.
Nat, Natty's or Natural coals are made from natural material like wood or coconut and have no added chemicals so they take longer to light. These coals usually have no taste to them therefore adding no extra taste to your smoke.
At my age being cynical and sarcastic is just making small talk.
