Default no flavor

Hello I'm new to hookah and just recently got my own hookah. When I smoke I don't seem to get very much flavor, any tips to get good flavor? I have a 16" Egyptian furat from hookah-shisha with the standard Egyptian bowl and washable hose, I'm using coconara coals. thanks in advance

make sure you are not packing the shisha to the rim of the bowl (Or the shisha touches the foil) this could burn it, and leave little to no flavor

It will help if you let us know what shisha you are smoking. Keep it up!

Ya there should be some flavor there. Remember with af. Just sprinkle it into the bowl, don't pack it and make sure the foil doesn't touch. How are your clouds?

yeah with Al Fakher just dont pack it too much and you'll be okay, how much coals are you putting on?
plus instead of putting water into the base try a juice that probs help with the flavour...

Juice can definitely give more flavor however he might not wanna try that until we get the original flavor problem solved that way he doesn't have to rely on juicing his vase in order to get flavor from the shisha.

Before putting the shisha into the bowl mix it up in the box very well so the juices are nicely spread. Than get a good amount of tobaco and drop it into the bowl, pack it down a little so there is nothing above the rim. Make a good thight drum with the alu foil and poke 3 rings of smal holes with a tooth pick or a needle. Put 2 coco's on top (plus a wind cover) and let them sit there for a minute or so. This should work. Ow and don't use ice in the base.
