Default No flavor or am I expecting a lot?

Just got my new km pharonie. I'm set up with a funnel bowl with a sheet of hd foil and 3 cocobuzz coals up top (rotated every 10mins), standard km hose that it came with and cold water in the base. The bowl is packed lightly to the rim and slightly patted down with three rings of pushpin holes poked. I have smoked all kinds of shisha such as fantasia, starbuzz, ss, af, and haze. Primarily we are smoking fantasia though. Either I'm doing something wrong and not getting flavor or its the shisha. I thought juicy brands would be loaded with flavor but there is just a hint of the flavor present. What's going on here?

cold water tends to cut down flavor a bit try with room temperature water

one thing that i have seen before is that it could be your hose. since youre smoking with the km hose that it came with i would assume it is the rainbow hose. these are not washable, and flavor ghosts in them, however, they can also prevent you from tasting flavor, especially when you have smoked so many different types of tobacco through it. pick up a washable hose such as a fancy hose or a nammor, maybe this will help

i've never gotten flavor from fantasia, is this happening with every brand?

When I used to smoke fantasia a lot I found that some flavors are stronger than others, also use 2 coals and a wind cover, a slight bit too much heat destroys fantasia's taste.

Too much heat? Check
Cold water removing flavor? Check
Non-washable hose ghosting tons of flavors through it? Check

Sounds like you have all the ingredients for a horrible session.
