Default Weird Flavor from vortex

For some reason i get a weird almost burn like flavor from my vortex bowl. I clean it every time i use it but there is still the black carbon ring on the sides ond over the top center. Has anyone else ever gotten this before? BTW the shisha is not burning. What can i do to remove this...

The carbon caking happens on all bowls, that won't/shouldn't be effecting the flavor. What you are claiming realy doesnt make much sense. If you aren't burning the shisha, then I would check to make sure it isn't your coals.

yeah a carbon line is completely normal.

try washing your bowl in the dishwasher, or put it in a pan of rapid boiling water for 5 minutes, then put a pinch of baking soda on top. it bubbles rapidly for 2 seconds, but then goes away and it cleans the hell out of a clay bowl.

try these, if none of those techniques work, maybe try switching hoses or cleaning your stem, you may have gotten some burnt stuff or residue in one of these parts.
