Re: vortex bowl problems :(
The whole advantage to vortex and funnel is to let the tobacco molasses actually boil so you get intense flavor. When you use a tobacco like nakhla it doesn't have the moisture like some of the other flavors posted above. Nakhla is just a more traditional Egyptian tobacco so it makes sense it should be smoked out of the old fashion Egyptian bowl.
