Re: Just opened my tin of SB Pumpkin Pie..
I had almost the same problem. I did a review of it in the shisha review section. The flavor wasnt there like the smell. It didnt taste soapy to me. I put it in a vortex bowl with 3 coals. It got really nice cloouds, and the flavor on the inhale was like a pie crust, and the exhale was a strange spice flavor.
