Re: No flavor!
In general, I have found starbuzz lacking in taste. I have the mint and the watermelon, and have tried at least a dozen other flavors at local hookah lounges. If I didn't know ahead of time what flavor I ordered, I wouldn't be able to tell what I was smoking, because the taste is just that faint. I do like the clouds off of SB though.
I use my starbuzz flavors to cut other stronger flavors. Like Mizo Mint and Mizo Apple are really strong, so I mix in 1/3 SB, mellows the taste a bit and improves the clouds.
As far as coals go, I have CH QL's and 3 kings QL's, and I can't tell the difference as far as flavor, both are good products. The 3 kings seem to be less maintenance. 3 QL coals is too many imo. I use 2 CHs on a standard Mya bowl, or 1 coal if using 40mm QLs. If using the larger Mya bowl, I use 3 CHs or 2 QLs.
