this summer I was overseas in Nazareth to visit some family. Anyway my cousin who's a true hookah pro helped me pick out two hookahs to bring back to the states. now I've only used one of them (keeping the other for parts use) and i've noticed something odd. i brought back some nakhla double apple
and anytime i smoke that it tastes very funny. almost like a chemical taste but not quite.
i've tried everything, switched hoses, tried different bowls, cleaned the stem and vase, switched charcoals but nothing has helped. any idea what this could be? every other flavor tastes fine and i don't think it's this shisha because it smells delicious and i've had it before
