Smile How to get more flavor out of my Hookah?

Hi, I'm new to smoking hookahs, well smoking my own hookah that is. I currently use a Mya QT, with a Nammor hose, either the standard Mya bowl or a MNH Hookah small phunnel bowl with scali mod. I usually don't huge flavor in my tobacco but I do get HUGE clouds. The clouds are nice but I wish I could get more flavor. I smoked Hookah Freak atomic fire ball and it was AMAZING, but other than that I really havn't got huge flavor bursts. Currently I am smoking Fantasia -Pink Lemonade, Strawberry Banana Split, and Blueberry. I get small flavor out of all three, but no flavor burts. More info on my typical setup. I do clean my hookah thoroughly after every smoke. I use heavy duty aluminum foil with shiny side down and tiny holes poked in a circle throughout the bowl. I use two coca nara on my mya bowl and three coca naras on my phunnel bowl and rotate after 20 minutes or so, starting on the outer edge and moving close to the middle as time goes on. I switch between ice in the bowl/ or just cold water. Occasionally I will use pink lemonade or other juices in the base. I sprinkle the shisha into my bowls to just below the rim, cover, and blow out the bottom before putting on my hookah. Any help that will get me more flavor will be GREATLY appreciated. I feel like I've tried everything and just missing something, or a few small things. Thanks for any advice

There is a trade off when smoking hookah; flavor versus clouds. The more heat you put on it, the less flavor you will get, but in turn you will get more clouds.

Try with less heat, if problem persists, purchase less crap shisha.

Fantasia is actually very good and burns nice. I get very thick flavorful clouds everytime I smoke Fantasia.

its one of the tops of flavorful tobacco







To the OP
Use
room temp water or warmer water like someone mentioned above.... that will bring more flavor also


Also after your done smoking do you have shisha on the top of you tin foil?



But if you want a tip on tasting the flavor more put your tongue next to the hose tip while sucking in

Try using one less coal and a windcover always helps me out with flavour, windcover is your best friend when it comes to having a good smoke, along with the obvious tobacco pipe etc

Hey all thanks for all the tips. What would be the best way to preform heat management. I often do have shisha on the bottom of the foil when I take it off... I'll try one less coal. I may be expecting too much. The hookahfreak atomic fireball I tried was just so flavorful. As I drew in you could feel your mouth burning from the cinnamon flavor. It was almost overwhelming. So maybe I am expecting overwhelming flavors all the time. How does fantasia compare to a starbuzz or nakla or any other for that instance. Thanks again for the advice!

As long as it tastes good and not harsh you should be good... I cut my coals in half so you could take off a half


but yeah most fantasia is pretty solid flavs.. Im going be honest never tried the flavs u had cuz they dont apeal to me

but I had to Cuban Mojito yesterday and that shit was powerful.... almost to sweet for a solo session but would be great with friends


i would put fantasia closest to starbuzz

manage your heat. also use ur phunnel or a vortex because it traps the juices in the bowl providing a better smoke

If you've got burnt shisha stuck to your foil, try packing less into the bowl so the foil isn't touching.
