Default Cant seem to get a whole lot of flavor out.

Hey guys, so my dilemma is I cant seem to get allot of flavor out of any shisha I smoke. Ive tried nakhla mint and double apple, romman blueberry and vanilla, af grape and laylina choco mint.
Im not sure what im doing wrong, Im using a mya QT with 2-3 ql Japanese coals. Im packing the shisha right at the rim of the bowl and using ice water to filter. If anybody knows what im doing wrong that would help =D

i'm a hookah newb and you probably already know this but before you pack your bowl make sure you mix the shisha up to get the juices flowin. just stir it up real good. hope you figure it out!

For the record, you don't really need to overpack Nahkla. Everything your doing seems fine, although you could probably do w/out the ice. But that's a matter of preference. I would check all our seals and grommets and be sure all is airtight.

lose the ice like every one says to do sure it makes the smoke colder and thicker but it also seems to drop allot of flavor out of it and you just have to play with you packing technique but youll get it, allot of nak flavors are semi mild not in your face candy like SB so some is tobaco some is set up and also check your rig for air leaks.

This can be huge. Just tonight when I started my first session it wasn't smoking right. The first time I purged the rig I noticed smoke pouring out around the hose port. I reseated the hose and everything was fine after that. Also make sure you purge valve is seating properly. When I got my first hookah, I discovered a burr around the valve seat. The ball bearing wasn't sealing. Removing the burr fixed it right up!

Im smoking some nakhla DA right now. There is alot more flavor there without the ice, the hookah is sealed all around. The only problem is now I realize that I don't like double apple that much lol. Thanks for the help everyone!

Take the ice water out and maybe invest in a phunnel bowl or vortex bowl. You don't really need a different bowl for Nakhla, but it would probably help the other stuff you're smoking. Also if you're burning the shisha, obviously there will be a lack of flavor, but if there's not enough smoke add more shisha. But I would try taking the ice water out of the picture first.

Also, natural coals would make a huuuuuuuuge difference.
