Are they using different shisha or coals?

Is your rig as dirty as a vegas stripper?

First i would clean it. Then i would check the shisha. If it is really dry, then add some honey or Glycerine to it to juice it up a little. But for flavor, you could add a few drops of an extract to it, however the taste from extracts and the flavor in the shisha tend to vary, so make sure that the extract smells good first. BTW, what flavor and brand is it? some brands just dont put out.

Coals can make a HUGE difference, I would go as far to say a bigger difference than the shisha will make.

Nakhla peach is an excellent flavor, but it isnt the most overpowering, if your rig is dirty or your coals are shit, it wouldn't surprise me if the flavor was weak or absent.

Yea, i have some brand new Nakhla Peach, its alright, but its not the stuff that is going to have tons of flavor. If i were you i would try getting some starbuzz, Blue Mist, Citrus Mist, or Pumpkin Pie. I think that is more of the type of shisha you are looking for. And if you get SB, dont bother with any shisha named after a drink, or a hooker.

Anything set up right will produce decent clouds, but starbuzz produces decent clouds not as good as AF imo but still big

Maybe you need to pack the Nakhla like Tangiers? I find getting more flavor packing it like that than just old school packing. And I don't think the coals are a problem if you're not getting any taste out of it.

Mizo peach is a much better choice if your going Nakhla. Nakhla apricot is a much better peachy flavor than their regular peach. As for best clouds ever, perfectly packed bowl of Kashmir Peach running 4 CH coals on a phunnel. Created my own weather system on the porch.

I find that lack of taste usually has to do with using water that's crazy cold and too many coals. You'll produce a lot of smoke, but it'll have little flavor and be harsh.

I have an idea for you to try stuart, find yourself some mint, generally any kind will do. Then, add a couple drops of peppermint extract in your hookah vase. You will get all the flavor in the world. Of course, it will only be mint, but hey, its better than no flavor right now.
