Default Re: Does humidity affect how shisha smokes??

Humidity would not affect the Starbuzz Shisha, only high nicotine content shishas like nakhla and Tangiers, maybe AF and Layalina but no so much because of the amount of glycerine and honey.

What is being affected, though, is the coals. Coals are actually used to absorb humidity. When they do this, they will smoke fine in the High-humidity climate, they are acclimated to it. But when you got back to AZ, where it is very dry (like utah, where i live, only drier) the coals retain much of that humidity. When you ignite them, the release of the humidity can cause the coals to give off noticeably less heat, and sometimes give off a smell, and even other times crack.
