Try drinking more water as you are smoking. Take a drink before taking a pull on the hose, hydrating your mouth and allowing the molecules of flavor from the shisha to be carried to where they need to go to taste them. Just a shot in the dark but it's a plausible solution. Smoke happy.

That's great advice. Drinking water is a great piece of advice any way. It cleanses the palette, brightens flavors and helps you avoid nicotine poisoning AKA hookah sickeness.
