There's a few tangiers favors I absolutely love. K Cherry, Brambleberry, Orange Soda, Juicy Peach!
For me its easy. I go to Texas Hookah, smell the bags I want to buy. If it smells close or spot on, I buy it, quick acclimation and it's smoking awesome. If it smells off, I don't buy it
Lucky in that aspect. But just spreading it in a big tupperware, stirring it really well and letting it sit for 3-5 hours does the trick for me.
