Default Getting the most Flavor

I know that adding more heat generally means bigger clouds. I was wondering if there was a certain setup you can use to get the most flavor out of your shisha

Really depends on what shisha you buy and what coals your using imo

Fluff up the tobacco when you pack bowls so you get better airflow and taste

Agreed. The brand and type of shisha is the first thing you should look at together with the coals you're using.

Jilly has mentioned something very important here. Overpacking can really ruin the flavour and quality of a session.

Also, before you take the shisha out of the container, mix the juices up real nice. I use the poker on my tongs for that and make sure my bowl is nice and juicy.

Adding juice on the bottom of your vase adds a lot of flavor!

We love to use thicker juices like V8 splash, real fruit juices, and such.

If you are smoking mint, throw in a couple mint altoids and be amazed at the added flavor! Or for orange tobacco, put in a couple orange peels.

And YES make sure to mix up your tobacco well! A lot of the time the molasses drips down to the bottom of the container. Mix it all up and dab with paper towel if there is too much molasses!

Yeah I hate when the juices drip down my bowl. I just loaded up a bowl of guava about an hour ago and got bored of using 2 coals so I turned on the stove, heated up 1 more and added it and oh man the increase of clouds was ridiculous. The heat management went pretty well based on where I placed them so it's always nice to get much bigger clouds. And Lava I'm going to have to try that altoid thing because Mint is my all time favorite flavor and I usually mix it with almost everything. Thanks for the tip!
