Is it just me or is Mizo Guava heat sensitive?
I've manager to burn Mizo guava 3 seperate bowls in a row and each time I increase the gap between the tobacco and foil but it still burns. Either that or I'm getting that horrible taste that Sambooka complaining about and just think I burnt it. I use the same setup for Mizo watermelon and get amazing sessions so it must be the tobacco. Anyone else had similar problems?

I haven't had issues with it either. Guava is my favorite of the Mizo line now.

I would say you are getting the same problem as me ... it almost has a burnt taste!? But plastic .. it is really weird!!! There is NO WAY I burned it .. had the coals on for about 8 minutes and a well packed bowl.

Inconsistency? I think so ... sad to say cuz I was really looking forward to this flavor!

i've never had a problem with guava or watermelon, until tonight. i smoked out of my large Egyptian bowl tonight, and the watermelon i smoked just couldn't handle 2 ch quicklites. i was disappointed, but through some creative heat management, i was able to get it smoking good. i've never smoked guava out of anything but my small funnel, and its always smoked amazing.

Mizo in general tends to be a tad sensitive.

Not in the burnt sense .. the first couple pulls were light whispery clouds but an odd flavor. As the minutes past the odd taste became more pronounced! Before I scrapped it .. I had my girlfriend come try it and she could barely stand the taste, you could see the look of disgust on her face .. so I knew it wasn't just me.

The mizo line from my experiences is a bit heat sensitive, Ive been smoking the watermelon and i did get some harsh smoke the first time

but since then ive got the heat management down and it smokes great everytime, i would assume the guava is the same

lol ... yeah I have a girlfriend .. and an extremely hot one I might add!

As for this tobacco .. I was setting up my hookah last night, looking through the stuff I still have to review. I like to try things out a couple times before I review it. Well I picked up the Mizo Guava and just couldn't ruin my evening like that! Still had this weird smell .. it sits off in the corner on the other side of the room for now. I will give it another shot though before I completely write it off.

I know for certain my bowl wasn't burning .. It doesn't happen very often for one and for two, I took extra care on that bowl because I had such high expectations for it .. I wanted it to last me a long time so I made sure I setup for the long haul.
