Default Am I nuts!? Nakhla Mizo Guava?

Got a 250 gm box of Nakhla Mizo Guava from John the other day. Set it up tonight! My setup a Vortex with 3 CH coals. Smoked from a KM Hookah.

Guava has a fruity smell at first but not quite guava? Then upon smoking it tasted extremely artificial and almost plastic like!? I went back to smell it and it did have a artificial plastic smell with a hint of fruitiness.

Now my question .. is it just me?? I have read great reviews of this .. I am wondering if I got a bad batch or what!??

Must be a bad batch. The Mizo Guava I've gotten isn't GUAVA GUAVA but it's what most guava shishas taste like with more of a candy taste. But it doesn't taste plasticy... I don't get as good of a taste out of a vortex as I do with a phunnel... But I doubt thats it, must just be a bad batch.

I loved it but couldn't smoke it for awhile as the smell stayed in my room for about 3 days haha. I just smoked a bowl of it with regular Nakhla Mint last night and it was amazing.

You're not off base at all, Sambooka. I've tried Watermelon and Guava from the Mizo line and would not give it as high a mark as most people would. I think Nakhla's attempt to copy SB and AF with thier Mizo line was done a little too well, with these two mediocre products being the result.

I dunno, people tend to give guava flavors a high rank most times, yet I have failed to find just one that didn't taste horrendous. Fusion was the worst by far too. Most guava flavors have that dirt-flavored undertone and I fail to understand why people enjoy them so much. It must just be my palate. I had a guava just a few days ago and it's a great fruit fresh, but in candy and Kern's nectar and tobacco it's terrible.

I tell ya what... Few weeks ago I was in my dad's house in the kitchen area, and my middle brother was cutting up some guava. So I tried a piece and it had the most disgusting aftertaste of any fruit I've ever had.... So I think that's why I'm staying away from it.

YES! I hate guava too. Just gross (the fruit alone, never had the tobacco flavored guava)

I am not a big fan of Guava in general and I haven't tried Mizo Guava but I wouldn't be surprised if it had an artificial taste.

Default Is it just me or is Mizo Guava heat sensitive?

I got similar taste to what you described but I thought I burnt it but I doubt I could burn 3 bowls in a row

When did you get it Luv2Smoke? I got mine on Saturday.

No there is no packaging in the tobacco. I went back to setup another bowl (Egyptian) and when I smelled the tobacco you could detect that artificial mixed with plastic taste .. with a hint of fruitiness

What do you mean? You are supposed to eat the core and seeds. It's the best part of the fruit.
