all u got to do is leave it in its container mix it around and leave it out for however long it takes for its funky smell to go away.. all u are doing is letting the tobacco get used to the moisture from wherever u are from

What i do is mix up a good amount enough for a phunnel bowl(eric at tangiers style) then I place it on a piece of foil and let it sitting out for about 6 hours. Ive actually only done this once but im assuming I got it right because I didnt taste any harshness at all and I got full flavor.

eh... with the weird ass weather we have been havign in OR recenlty i dont think any acclimating is gonna stick for too long, but what they said still applies. just basically go against what conventional tobacco wisdom would tell you to do and let it air out for a few hours. If the weather is pretty constant, you only have to do it once, but if the humidity is shifting around a lot you will have to do it again.

Comprende?

Sometimes any shisha can use a little acclimation, HH chai and AF cola both do well with getting some air

Same here. I just got some Lucid in a trade and the smell is a bit off. I'm letting it air out a bit.

Tangiers seems like such a picky tobacco. Gotta let it sit out (acclimation), you have to pack it a certain way, etc etc. Is it really worth it? I've heard mix reviews of their shisha too.

Anyway, What other tobacco do you think get better with sitting out a bit?

Almost any tobacco can benefit from acclimation. Not that it's necessary, but sometimes you'll find the smell and flavor will improve a bit.

The Lucid line of Tangiers will generally not require acclimation, only the Noir (regular) Tangiers.

Most fo the time you only have to let certain flavors sit out. In utah, we can't smoke Tropical Flavors, period. Yet citrus flavors are always perfection. I rarely have to acclimate any Tangiers I buy. As a matter of fact, I don't acclimate because it's not needed.

It is packed very tight. That's it. And poke a bunch of holes in it. Sounds easy enough to me...

And the Nakhla flavors like Cardamom, Marguerita, Cinnamon, Double Apple all benefit from breathing.
