Hello everyone, im new to the hookah world, but from what i understand i have a decent hookah and have several nice types of shisha, i have a 24' syrian nour hookah, whenever i try and smoke starbuzz sex on the beach i find that it gets very harsh and it isint enjoyable at all. I use 2 layers on foil, and two ******* hookah natural coals, and if i take one coal off it still seems to taste odd. This is unfortunate because i live in a area where shipping shisha takes 10 days regardless and i dont want to keep waisting the shisha i have. I have had much better luck with hookah-hookah brand tobacco and from what i understand starbuzz is supposed to be a much higher quality. I always use water and ice in the base. If anyone could help me with some tips for smoking starbuzz please let me know, i would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks - Rick

packing your bowl more loosely or with less shisha could help, also rotating your coals more frequently... if it's getting harsh it usually boils down to improper heat management so while you're smoking whenever you first taste the harshness (or before if you can catch it) ash the coals, clear your hookah, and move your coals to a new spot.

How do you pack your shisha?
I've found that with Strabuzz you should pack it loosely with quite a bit of space between the rim and the tobacco.
I sprinkle it in and LIGHTLY pack it down. I get great results like that.

make a lot holes with a needle, look at vase and check if the water is 2-3 cm over the vase hose.
check that your shisha is little wet and use 2-3 coals in funnel or 1-2 coals in regular bowl.

if its like that every thing need to be fine, very well taste very big clouds but if its still seems like your problem mix some huny and water(less than a small spoon) with your shisha and use cold water its be very well.

i forgot to say
dont pack a lot of shisha toy our bowl
use a little bit and cover with foil...

When you pack your starbuzz, try sprinkling it into the bowl and pat it down a bit to go below the rim of the bowl. Start off with one coal, rotate it around the bowl, then add more coals if the heat is not enough to get it going. Thats depending on how big your bowl is. This method applies to my small Egyptian bowl. Good luck and let us know your progress.
