with Nakhla DA. Couldn't really get it to work properly. Either way too much heat (thick clouds, bad taste) or too little (very bad clouds, nearly no taste). No I have to check out your dense overpacking method, perhaps that will work better. Dee's method is very loosely packed compared to yours. I think Dee's will work better with wet shisha, as you said.
I can confirm that my method works with Nakhla and also Tangiers. The Tangiers makes a hell of a mess of the stem though. Whatever tobacco you use (or packing method for that matter), you need to play around with the heat management.
I would think the more tobacco you stuff in there, the better it will take the heat!
