Default Poor Sessions

Ok so lately my chinese hookah from texashookah has been smoking horrible. I'm not sure if its because I've been using my KM and the KMs and the local Hookah lounge or what but I'm getting weak smoke (kinda common) but the flavor isn't there at all. Seems like I'm tasting coal with a little bit of grape lol.

Can anyone think of what may be happening. Could it have always been like this? Even if thats the case why does it do that.....

Its most likely b/c you are so used to your KMs

I was like that when I got my nou nou. I was so used to my egyptian's smoke and the nou nou was a sucky transition cuz it wasn't as great as a smoke compared to it.

But after a while, I got used to it

I guess thats it...

This whole time I've been supporting my chinese made hookah but if smokes like this again tomorrow I'm going to pass it on to a friend.

then it may just be the height causing the difference in quality, or perhaps the chinese hookah is starting to corrode.

also, most chinese hookahs use a common chamber, and gunk can build up in that. KM's are a lot more simple design, and easier to clean.

Perhaps its too much coal for using the hookah? since your so used to a KM there might be some sort of difference in heat transference? thats my guess, as soon as you said coal with grape flavor

Hi guys. I have these al-nakhla hookah flavours sealed in 50g boxes. I have had them for more than 2 years. Evereytime meh and my friends have a session the flavour burns out fast and you dont get any of the flavour but there iz a lot of smoke. Can anyone help meh out and tell me if there's such a thing as expired hookah flavours or maybe the way I'm setting up the hookah iz incorrect.

first off welcome! its great to see new faces, but next time make a new topic people might not see this.

second off my guess is since its so old its "shot" the flavoring has probably pretty much been dried up. something along those lines lol. tobacco lasts for 2 years after its made so thats probably the problem right there.

Yeah man, you probably are used to the hit of a nice hookah now and the old one can't compare. Like using a QL months after you switched to naturals, just don't know how good you have it until you visit the past. LOL

zain_ch1, like Raid3n said please make your own topic next time you have a question. He is right, throw out that old shisha and get some new stuff. Nahkla is inexpensive and great.

zain, i odnt believe its the tobacco. Nakhla almost never dries up, even if not sealed. I suggest using different type of coal, using less coal w/ windcover and packing a bit more fluffy. That should set you.
