Question Can anyone help me please

Hello everyone

I am a new shisha smoker and I really am interested into shisha but I wanted to talk about a problem I had recently

My setup is a KM with a Km hose and clay bowl for tobacco I am using AF Double apple

The problem is when I am smoking it there is a taste of coal rather then the tobacco and it is really putting me off, I am using swift lite coals so can anyone help me on this problem. I use 1 coal and I am wondering is that right using just 1 coal or should I use more and how many coals should I use, also if you smoke shisha is it normal getting a head ache?

Thank you for your help

your coals arent fully lit. you have to wait til there is no more black on quick lites... or boom- instant headache from all the chemicals. thats also whats affecting your taste.

i dont have any experience with those. but quick lites usually give off a fair amount of heat. start with 2, and go from there.

But I got this problem you see is that the smoke tastes like coal not very nice so how do I get a good flavour out of the shisha instead of a charcoal flavour which is horrible??

While i have never used that brand i can't help but wonder is these coals have the same problems as some of the other quick lite coals out there. Try using natural coals and make sure they are lit completely before using them. Natural coals won't give off any odor or taste when fully lit, leading to a better session with your hookah.

Thanks for all your help guys so I am going to make sure my quick lites are fully red and I am going to put 2 on and I will switch to natural coals after I finish the swift lites :-)
