So with a "proper" tangiers bowl, the shisha IS touching the foil correct?

Is it burnt/stuck to it after you're done?

i put the foil on the tobacco...then i push down with my hand to compress it. at the end of a 4 - 5 hour session in a small phunnel, when i take the foil off the tobacco theres a crispy donut of tobacco stuck to it.

Ok so if I decide to order some more tangiers what should I order? So far I haven't had any brand of shisha really knock me on my ass and I really do like a buzz so I'd like to stay with the regular or f-line tangiers unless the Lucid is super good. I want a really strong and natural flavor...

Yeah, I don't hide my feelings about it .. I don't like it at all .. not a fan .. just my personal opinion though. I really should give it another try though. Taste buds do change and maybe they have critiqued it to be more consistent?

I have smoked with a tangiers master! and I was still not impressed.

Things I do to ensure a good Bowl of Tangier's:

- pack, pack, pack, then pack some more. I use a retarded amount of shisha per bowl, but I usually reuse the unburnt tobacco on the bottom in my next bowl.
- as many Toothpick size holes as possible. At the end the holes have more area than the foil.
- Reynolds HD GOOD foil, no cheap stuff. Easiest way to screw it up besides underpacking.
- 3x CH coals, if need be use excessive Ice in base.

Just got some White Grape last night. It's tasty but not my favorite. Schnozzberry is amazing. And as a bonus the Schnozzberries really taste like Schnozzberries. Peach Iced Tea is...meh. Not bad but not great. Blue Gumball is good too. Didn't hav much luck w/ Orange Soda but I need to give that a second try before I make a final verdict. Spearmint was tasty.

I've been on a Lucid Kick and can recommend most of the Lucid Flavors out there. All Lucid flavors are basically available in the Noir line. I'd just read the reviews and go from there, but beware, some reviews are not accurate because some reviews were not able to properly acclimate or pack thier bowls. Tangiers requires slightly more work, but its quite worth it.
