Default Nahkla mint Q.

The flavor is amazing but after 5-10min the flavor is gone.

Ive tried vortex and regular bowls, 2 and 3 coals (coconaras).



All other nakhla flavors ive smoked lasted whole session.

Can you tell me how many coals and which coals do you use? Is tobacco touching the foil?

I use AF coconut coals. 2 on a small clay Egyptian and I keep the tobacco about 1/8'' below the foil.

i think i have same bowl, they normally come with the Km hookahs. It will only hold about 6-8g of tobacco.

How often do you take draws and how long does the session last?

I normally take 6-7 draws a min.

the flavor to me is not very strong (then again i eat altoids all day), it seems like it might disappear but you just are desensitized to it

Just use mint for mixing You got the cool taste in your mouth and throat from mint and the flavour from where you are mixing it with.

o also the plain nakhla mint is more of a mentholish mint than a peppermint, mizo is more spearmint/Moroccan mint but closer to peppermint but i always got a weird taste with it (kind of a bit of the af ketchupness but no where near as bad, just a hint) not sure if it was the box i got, or my taste buds or what, either way it still seems weak to me

well are you mixing it up? if you are just taking some off of the brick that the tobacco came in in the box that can hurt flavor some. i put all of the pack into a ziplock and kneed the crap out of it through the bag every time i pack a bowl

the only thing i can think is that you just lose taste for that flavor, or you got a bad batch (which i honestly cannot remember any bad nakhla batches being talked about) your still getting normal smoke right? you could be over heating it just enough to hurt the flavor but not make it really harsh

i remember smoking mint 50g and it was fine.

i havent gotten much more flavor from a tight pack. im really thinking its just you, something with the flavor and your taste buds not playing. are you smoking with anyone else to see if they think it is losing flavor. sometimes depending what you eat or if you have been smoking a lot or what ever will kill flavor for you, i know DA tastes different to me than it used to.

Ive been smoking nakhla mizo gum and cocomint without any problems. I know i wont be buying regular mint flavor again. Mizo gum has great clouds but Cocomint has a stronger mint taste that overpowers the chocolate in it.
