Do the other flavors that you have, have the same problem? Check your kookah for leaks and your hole pattern. Also, make sure that you are mixing up your tobacco really well then packing it.

Nakhla Strawberry isn't one of their best flavors. It was actually the first I smoked from them too and was a little disappointed but don't let that stop you from trying others. As most will tell you on here try Sweet Melon and Double Apple!

the 50g packages of nakhla are usually drier than the 250g packs, im sure if you tried a 250g of strawberry you'll like it

a lot of 50g packages are old and dry as well as lacking in flavor. Like every brand, there are good and bad flavors. strawberry isn't the greatest Nakhla flavor out there. Try some sweet melon, earl grey, double apple, and any of the Mizo line. 250g's only.

no, its not the hookah or the way its packed because ive been using it all day with other flavors and everything is fine except the strawberry.
I bought the 50 gram packs because im pretty new to hookah so i wanted to try a bunch of flavors and then buy 250 grams of the ones i like.
its not really a big deal, it wont deter me from trying other nakhla.

thanks for the wisdom guys/gals.

You are going to be hard pressed to find a strawberry with strong flavor. Nakhla or otherwise they are almost all weak.

It's not that Nakhla is dry, it's that others are too wet.

Strawberry is kindof a faint flavor really. I can really only taste it after a mint or brushing my teeth. The flavor is actually pretty freaking good, like strawberry pop rocks - just really really subtle.

Good to hear, i woul;d suggest getting 50's to try the flavours and then bigger packs in 250's, but the 50grams of nakhla is really dry and old, well most of them.

I didnt like the strawberry either, try some fak mixed fruits, sweet melon, DA and the mizo line and margarita, thats my fav's from nakhla

Yea I am new to hookah as well and the two 250g boxes I bought are fakhfakhina mixed fruit and double apple. I bought it for $5.99 from a local gas station Out of the two, my favorite is the fakhfakhina mixed fruit, the double apple is also good but has taste similar to black licorice which I am not a big fan of. Regardless, double apple is extremely smooth flavor. Give it a try!

Fine choices. Both are amazing flavors.

According to everyone else on this forum, they are saying that the 50g packages are in fact too dry. So I wouldn't be so bold to say that everything else is to wet, but I can agree with you on some brands. Some are sopping wet and will dirty your hookah up real quick.
