Default Tangiers first time...

Just was curious about Tangiers. Is it possible to over-acclimate to the point of losing the flavor? I know you have to get this stuff right, but after letting it sit for a day, all I can really taste is the unwashed tobacco. Thanks

If you are in FL I hope you got lucid, no one I have heard of has gotten noir to work in the humid state of FL

I am trying the Classic Raspberry. Not Lucid, but I think I can understand the FL thing chewy. Just got a hint of the flavor. Thx

Try the 4/20 method
4 Hours stiring 1 time per hour and then 20 sealed

For now I would recommend sealing it in some tuperware for a day or 2

Ok Ryon, I'll try again.. After the 20 sealed do I have to let it sit out again before smoking?

Let it sit for maybe a bit if the smell is there ie rasberry
For now pack it up in its container and let it sit
Might have had a little too much exposure for the day
Just remember when you open it back up to stir it

I would imagine not to let it sit with a fork in it the whole time, too? Correct? I really want to like this stuff, but it's hard to. I like how Nick puts it.. I don't like MY tobacco telling me when I can smoke it.. And I'm not going to buy it dinner and get it drunk just to be able to smoke it lol.

Tangiers is a finicky little bastard
If its a plastic fork youre fine, metal I wouldnt trust it
Also, is your house A/C on or do you have the windows open?
Tangiers goes haywire over sudden temp/humidity changes since youre in FL

I put it into wide box and left it for about 6 hours on the window board and stirred it every hour.

is it really that hard to acclimate in florida?
i used to live in florida and everyone had central air, inside it was exactly the same as it is anywhere that you have climate control
