Default Starbuzz Taste

Hey guys aside from my April foolishness I have a question about Starbuzz. Every time me and my girlfriend smoke Starbuzz it starts getting a weird chemical kind of after taste. did anyone else notice this or know where the taste comes from? Because otherwise we love the flavors and wish they just wouldn't get that after taste.

what flavor of sb are you smoking, or is it every flavor of Sb that does it to you?


Make sure your set up is clean and if your hose is washable then wash it. Are you using quicklights or natural logs? Ql's can give off a nasty flavor.

Ive tried code 69, wildberry mint, watermelon (which did not get the taste), and citrus mist. We used three kings coals the first time but for the rest of them I used coco nara's. The bowl was just a standard ceramic. We have a washable hose but sadly right now im smoking out of a cheap chinese hookah. However I dont think its the hookah because we mainly smoke al faker and it doesn't get the taste. Im about to get a new tin and try it with the phunnel and see if that makes a difference. Its just kind of a pain because I really like their flavors but the after taste is a little odd. the big problem is the after taste makes my girlfriend sick. So we dont smoke it much.

and thanks Buzzhookah ill try that.

is there any flavors the you guys highly recommend? Besides Blue Mist which we did like.

Starbuzz all tastes like chemicals to me. It's the artificial flavors and gobs of glycerin they use.

Honestly, it ain't all it's cracked up to be.

Two other possibilities...

1) are you letting your coals ash over completely before smoking them? Outside of coals can be treated to light easier so you want to make sure they are totally lit before smoking

2) Are you using "non stick" tinfoil? This has a coating that is no good for you.

The whole point of SB is that it's super sweet, totally artificial tasting with no hint of tobacco qualities and makes huge clouds. If that is not to your liking then go smoking another brand.

I get that from SB as well which is why I hardly smoke SB anymore
Pack slightly tighter and mix well
Maybe let it air out 30 mins before you smoke
