Default Aerating Your Shisha

So I've heard recently of people letting their shisha sit out in the air for a while before smoking it.

What are the pros/cons/objectives of this

Thanks for the help!

but sometimes letting it sit out helps the flavor when its too over bearing
just my opinion

Acclimating ... same thing.. just giving u wut hookah people call it

but its really only need for unwashed tobacco like tangiers which smells like soy sauce sometimes when you open it

go to Tangiers website and he explains everything about why you need to and how

Some flavors like a breather. When you get a flavor that just smells off or too strong or too chemical, let it sit out.

Tangiers needs acclimation, which is different than letting it air out.

All tobacco benefits from acclimation.The closer the tobacco you smoke is to the enviornment that your smoking in (temp,humidity) the less shock you experience. That being said, if it smells good, smoke it..

I do it to tobacco that don't smell just right, like if i travel and my car is to cold and i go in to a hot room, the tobacco starts to change its smell.

also make sure you smoke it right, yes theres a special way to smoke it, dont over load the bowl and make sure it doesnt touch foil. then when your smoking and it feels like its burning (tingely feeling in your throat) add more heat. if taste doesnt improve then you probably burnt it. it takes practice to smoke AF perfectly.
