Default every tobacco seems to be giving me no flavour

I dont know if its just my taste buds but it seems like everyhting i smoke now , has no taste, just taste like smoke. anyone else experince this.
i been smoking alot of nak, like mango, double apple, af apple, i even smoked skyzz buble gum and they had all a hint of taste. but mostly i just taste smoke. i rember when i smoked id get soo much flavour now all i get is a hint of flavour and a taste of nothing . i smell the tobacco on the exhale and smells soo good. but when inhaled i get nohtinng ?

I use an egyptian clay bowl, two 3 king ql.
bowl last for about 2 hours on average.
so i know im not burinng the tobacco.

dude then you shouldn't have been washing your hose, it can rust. That can be the cause of you not getting any flavor.

true. But i ran water threw it and found no particles or rust or and change in colour so i doubt its the hose. im guessing has to be from the steam. well i just cleaned it relaly good but hha i dont plan on smokig till tommrow to see how it is. will see i guess. you think it woudl be good to leave my steam soakedi n something over night

dont run water through that hose.. thats baddd!!!!! try packing differently, use less tobacco play around with it to get some flavor. i know what you mean though this happens to me quite alot actually because i really dont take time packin my bowl i just toss it in a go because i wanna smoke.

It's probably rusted still, even if stuff doesn't fall out.

If none of the above helps, I've heard of hookah burn out. Your taste buds may need a break!

I'm in the same boat as you, guy. My rig is squeaky clean and my hose is not ghosted. I use different bowls with different shisha and I use CH instant lites.

I agree with kornkitten though about being burned out. My taste buds need a good resting. Perfect timing for getting fit and healthy again.

Agree with KK taste Bud Burnout relax and give your taste Buds a break

Do you smoke anything other than hookah? Cigarettes can seriously dull your sense of taste and smell.

Yeah this is what I was going to say, I smoke cigarettes and when I was younger, hookah tasted much stronger than it does now. Although I haven't lost all taste distinction...

well i haven't been smoking hookah a lot. I just began smoking again after a month of a break. and i smoke like 3-4 times a week tops, i don't smoke cigarettes , well i just washed it hardcore,when i smell the stem , it still smells not soo good ,i don't know if thats normal because of the age of the hookah. but any tips on a really good method to get my hookah smelling fresh again would be nice
and would a leak make a big difference ?
and i have packed it many different ways.
i been getting really good amount of smoke and length of session by sprinkling it in then packing it just bellow the rim, if theirs any other way that would be nice to know< well thanks for all the help guys

GIVE YOUR TASTE BUDS A BREAK. I took a break about two weeks ago for a week. Ya no hookah for a week kinda sucks. But im telling you its worth it. I lose taste in the winter a couple times a year because that's when i go on my hookah binges cause its cold and boring. When you have your first bowl after a week its like starting all over again. Your taste buds will go crazy. Your other option is to move on to stronger flavored shisha. Tangier's you will taste....
