Flavour quickly dissipates
What's the best way to keep the flavour strong?
We always seem to get a good smoke for 15 mins or so and then it goes to flavourless smoke. It doesn't taste like the tobacco is burning, but a little bit ashy.
We have a cheap Egyptian hookah with a Vortex bowl and a Nammor hose. We use genuine Al Fakher tobacco and Coco Nara coals.
We tend to use three coals on double foil. And most of the time we keep the wind cover off so the smoke doesn't get too harsh. We put it on to get the coals glowing red if they look like they're going out.
We want the effortless smoke with big clouds and amazing flavour. We do get it sometimes but it doesn't stay around for long enough!
