Default Cant get any flavor!!!

I just set up my hookah to have a little session and the end result was horrible!!! I didn't taste anything but air! wtf mannn.

I was smoking out of a 29" KM, I used some Starbuzz melon dew in a havana phunnel bowl, 3 coconaras, and ice in vase. I got absolutly NO flavor, I got hugeee clouds, no harshness, and the clouds smelled good but no melon dew flavor at all! wtf is going on!

I had my shisha stored in a ziplock bag, took all the air out and put it in the starbuzz can, how am I losing flavor?!?

This is one of the reasons why I want to sell my KM I have not had 1 good session with it yet! I've had way better sessions with a mya with a mya bowl.

Whats going on? this sucks.

More coals = bigger clouds, less flavor
Ice in the base = larger, smoother clouds, less flavor

You're sacrificing flavor for larger clouds. Also, make sure that the smoke hits the surface of your tongue when inhaling. Exhale through the mouth and nose simultaneously and you should taste the smoke a little better.

I recommend that you use less coals with a windcover, that alone should make a difference in flavor.

+1 i think its the ice in the base, as the melon dew flavour i have had recently was very mellow so the chilled base reduced the flavour, so you couldnt taste anything

True that, I find ice dilutes the flavour somewhat... but ice and mint is insanely refreshing.

okey look.. More coals = More clouds AND more flavour..
if you dont use enough heat, ur shisha will not get started... therefore you should use enough coals to not burn your tobacco.. but dont lower on coals if not needed..
BUT more ice = more clouds = less flavour ( but in some cases it suits the session to use ice and get colder fresher smokes )..

so dont get it confused.. more coals is not equal to less flavour!
