Default Another hookah flavor thread :S

So just a brief background, I've smoked at hookah bars here and there and up until I started watching shisha reviews I decided to get my own rig and tobacco so I can experience the real deal. What intrigued me was how flavorful the reviewer rated different kinds of shisha and I really wanted to experience this. So I ask honestly, is hookah smoke suppose to be sweet and flavorful? Because using 2 coco naras on a mya bowl on a mya vortex and a nammor hose, I get a hint of "smell" if you will but not really flavor.. Don't know what I am doing wrong or I'm expecting too much? So far I've tried AF grape (closest thing to flavor), AF cherry was kinda pastey and not that flavorful and nakhla mint barely had anything..

Are you mixing up the shisha before putting it in the bowl?

Well, first of all you are using AF, and that stuff is terrible.

But if that's all you have at the moment, make sure it is being packed light and fluffy a tad under the rim of the bowl, then cover it with the foil. 2 cocos shouldn't be too much for one of those ceramic Mya bowls if packed correctly, so try managing your heat with a windcover.

If you had to "look" for flavors in hookah smoke, I am pretty surer half the people herer would have nothing to do with it.

i put my tobacco in ziplocks, before I pack my bowl i kind of squish it around so it mixes with the juice (nakhla and the AF cherry are kind of pastey consistency) then i sprinkly it in the bowl, just below the top, 1 piece of heavy duty tightly on and 2 cocos i dunno, i want to experience what the people in the reviews do with rich flavors, i have a phunnel, AF strawbery and starbuzz bluemist coming in tomorrow hopefully that will change things

I've never gotten the "tastes just like eating an apple" type flavor out of hookah like some people speak of, but the taste is definitely there. Then again my sinus's are 24/7/365 F'd so that might effect things.

try Starbuzz safari melon dew. If you can't taste that then you're doing something wrong or something is wrong with you

The only time i notice less taste is when i use ice, dry the shisha out a bit on accident, or have a leak somewhere.

Also, there is a small placebo effect when you go to a hookah bar. Generally, they will use quicklights, cheap tobacco and generic hookahs. But because you paid money for it, you convince yourself that it is a great session full of flavor and enjoyment. This is known as a false memory. It can result from the influence of external factors, such as the opinion of an authority figure or information repeated in the culture. An individual with an internal desire to please, to get better or to conform can easily be affected by such influences.

While i dont want to assume anything on you, this is a big possibility because it happened to me.

I first smoked hookah when i was 15. After that, i didnt try it for a few years, i remember the smoke as big as clouds. I remember the flavor like biting into a fresh strawberry......But most of those were figments of my imagination, only to dissappoint me later. I think this is why i try to strive to make my hookah as enjoyable as possible, so that i might one day reach that point, or better yet, i allow someone else to experience that and remember their best session with my hookah.

OK, im kinda going off on a tangent, but you get the idea.

Hmm true, that reminds me of the Milgram experiment LOL are you a psych major? But anyways its not about the hookah bars, I just see all these video reviews, take AF strawberry for example, people are praising its candy like strawberry taste, I think I will chew gum and sell my stuff if this new stuff dissapoints.
