Default Does all shisha need to acclimate?

Im wondering if every brand of shisha needs to acclimate or just tangiers? not getting flavor from HH Mango && wondering if its due to not being acclimated? or just not good? maybe my setup is wrong?

Every shisha is ready to smoke out of the package unless otherwise specified. Desi Murli and Tangiers can both need special treatment depending on where you bought your DM or if you bought lucid tangiers.

1. AF grape is doomed
2. DM definitely needs a little acclimation sometimes, my coffee flavor tasted REAL nasty first off.
3. for people living in Florida and such, everything gets nasty sometimes it seems. If something you don't smoke for a while smells "different" air it out for about 15 minutes.

Does tangiers have a harder time acclimating in a humid or dryer climate?

As others have pointed out, most "normal" tobacco's don't need acclimatization.

You shouldn't be surprised that you're not getting any flavour from HH tobacco. In my opinion HH tobacco leaves much to be desired and is rather overrated. I once received samples of HH Raspberry and Strawberry and both of them tasted like absolutely nothing.

[FONT=Comic Sans MS]The climate differs in the world and if the Tobacco is a nearly the same altitude and similar climate where it was manufactured no or little acclimatization is necessary. I found with Nakhla if I mix the moassel through before packing a bowl and place a bowlful in a small glass bowl and leave it out for 15 to 20 minutes the flavor changes becomes more smooth and closer to the intended flavor. Remember the [/FONT][FONT=Comic Sans MS]elevation of 1753 metres (5751 ft). Elevation = [/FONT][FONT=Comic Sans MS]altitude above sea level for Johanneburg makes a big difference.

So Accilmatization all depends on your location and Climate.[/FONT]

I take my tobacco(shisha is a hookah) out to dinner and a movie and get it to feel comfortable with me and of course i pay the bill, and it acclimates for me.

All jokes aside, from what I understand unless your tobacco is either tangiers or went from sea level to the mountains you do not need to acclimate it.

For the most part, no. Lucid should not require acclimation.

I think tangiers is alittle harder in the dryer climates. Well, it drys out faster so I have to stir it up more often, which is more hassel for me. But the time is more inhumid climates.

I;ve smoked HH peanutbutter, grahamcracker, spiced rum, lemonade, and vanilla. The peanutbutter is great (alone, and mixed)- it tastes like natural peanutbutter and cangive you that peanutbutter on the roof of your mouth feeling. The others have a nice flavor, but seems to leaving you desiring more and more flavor. I like the spiced rum as a mixer... adds a nice alcohol flavor to anything u put it with.

I leave my shisha out all the time, I'm sure it's well acclimated.

I just wash it out and lay it on the counter there. No need for a container, really. It's nice and dry when I'm ready to smoke it.
