You'll take a lot of flak here for not fawning over Nakhla Earl Grey... I personally enjoy it and find it to be very close to the real thing... perhaps a bad batch?

I hate to say it but some nakhla flavors need a bit of acclimation...Let it set out a few hours befoer smoking and then try it.

dont know about the rose smell?? but i smoke alot of nakhla and while they dont need acclimation generally earl grey is one of the flavours that did!!

out of the pack the smell was insanely strong and lavender/bergmont smelling. i smoked it and it was a very strong flavour, only towards the end was i getting the tea flavour, the other flavour was way too empowering.

i let it sit out for a couple of days , and now its smokes a hundred times better, just needs to acclimatise, and its a damn good complex flavour.

i gotta agree slightly with the cardomom being similar originally straight out of the pack. but once again once acclimised for a few days etc it has a different smell and defo smokes better aswell. the two are very different after acclimation!!

hpe this helps

Maybe not a bad batch but an old batch, perchance?

Cardamom stays in your hose very long so if you smoked it in the same hose you will taste the Cardamom very strong for a few smokes

You are probably getting a ghost from cardamom.

It can come off as floral, just like kashmir can, it's just based on the smoker.

I can't say i've ever heard of anyone associating rose and cardamon flavours with Nakhla Earl Grey before so your post confuses me. Perhaps you haven't properly identified the flavours? Perhaps you over paked the bowl, used too much heat or have a hold over from something else tainting your rig?

Here is what I suggest you do:
1) clean your rig and hose
2) Use fully lighted natural coals only
3) Try out a good, strong cardamon moassel in a loosely packed bowl making sure that moassel never touches the foil
4) Clean out your rig and hose again
5) Try out a Nakhla Earl Grey in a loosely packed bowl making sure that moassel never touches the foil and see how you like it.
