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.
I agree, good tobacco should not need acclimation. I appreciate tangiers for their bold flavors, heavy smoke, high nicotine content and how preparing it is almost and art form. I am a Tangiers fan and i will stick by my brands. However i do realize that it is not for everybody and it should be bought with a degree of caution if you don't know what you are doing. There are plenty of other great shishas out there and this should be one of the last brands you try because its temperamental. Don't make this your first purchase and ruin your impression of hookah smoking.
