lol. here is why i think room temperature water is better than ice cold water flavor wise:
In chemistry, when atoms are heated, they are given energy, which makes them bounce and collide with other atoms more often. When atoms are "colder", they tend to collide less and move less. Now, relating it to hookah smoke. If the water in the base is warmer, but not hot as hell, it will make the smoke particles "bounce" more often, and collide with whatever picks up the flavor in your mouth/nose/throat. If it is colder, the smoke will be more dense, but carry less flavor because the smoke particles do not collide with your hookah smoke taste buds as much.
And of course, I could be totally wrong
