I stand corrected....
So I finally tried Tangiers. I had been critical in the past because it sounded like a lot of hassle. Well I gotta say, it was well worth it. A new fanboy is born.
This forum was a big help. Following the tips that have been posted certainly made sure that I had a good first experience. The flavor was Horchata. I let it acclimate (spread out in a large tupperware tub) for about 24 hours. I used a medium Phunnel bowl, overpacked (but not super overpacked). 3 coconara coals. Sessions lasted a little over an hour and the very rich flavor lasted throughout. No harshness at all.
So to all of those who provided helpful hints, thank you. Suggestions for the next must-have flavor will be very welcome.
