For the reason I stated. It needs acclimation and then many times it doesn't acclimate properly. Good tobacco doesn't need to acclimate. For new hookah smokers Tangiers is not something you start out with for this reason.

You answered why I tell people no to Tangiers. It is not for new people. Even the most experienced can't get Tangiers to smoke properly. Drew, you should know good tobacco needs no acclimation.
