Re: Shisha is lacking flavor
It sounds like you and your friend not only know how to set it up right, you know your hookahs and brands. You are doing everything right but for a larger hookah. 10 inches is a very very small hookah and to put two coals on that tiny thing for three minutes before even hitting it you are baking it at a super high temperature and everything is creating that burnt taste, the shisha and the shisha juices from the honey and glycerin moisture. Even if it's not black yet it's done. Try half a coal and wait for a larger hookah and bowl to use two coals at a time.
