Default No Flavor? Help!

Hey guys! I'm smoking some HH Mocha right now and I've got no flavor at all. Very disappointing because it smelled incredible out of the package. I've got a Sahara Smoke genie hookah, vortex bowl, 2 ahkla quick light coals. I cleaned it beforehand, but maybe not as much as I could have. Out of lemon juice. The smoke is fine. Come to think of it, the flavor wasn't that great the other day when I was smoking nahkla strawberry with a few pinches of tangiers peach ice tea.

I'm still somewhat of a noob. Can someone diagnose my problem?

Thanks!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_0FAJ63sH4 was my vid on it. Honestly had to watch it again to see what I said about this.

The issue with HH is that the flavor is good, but the tobacco isnt, people have a hard time making the tobacco flavor last long, and thats part of the big issue. Make sure you are stirring the juices up when you pack the bowl and maybe increase the heat a tad to get more flavor.

Muchas gracias, everyone! I'll try it again soon and hopefully it will be ok. I'll be sure to give the hoses a good cleansing as well.

Honestly, the only time i can get good flavor out of HH is when i put something in the shisha. For instance, i had HF (same stuff) Peppermint Schnapps, and it was weak. So i added a few drops of peppermint extract to it. Now it is a great strong peppermint flavor. I doubt that they make mocha extract, but im sure that you could put some coffee or something similar in the abse to heighten the flavor. Also, if you have two of the 40mm Akhla coals then it could be too much heat. It may not be burning, but if you have more heat then the flavor will not last as long. Also, be sure to just use room temperature water in your vase. I know that most people like the idea of ice cold water in their vase, but with some weaker shishas, the warmer water will help give you flavor because the smoke will be warmer, hence the particles moving around faster.
