weak flavor, laylina strawberry-kiwi, newbie error perhaps?
currently i am having the same problem too, i can hardly taste my al-fakher coffee with my hookah, i use a pumpkin hookah btw, and i have brown stains in my hose(apparently i washed it but i doubt its rust since i bought it less than 2 weeks ago) and its a non washable hose...
