Default Loss of flavor

Last few days I've noticed something puzzling. About an hour or less into the session the shisha completely loses all flavor. Still producing good clouds, but no taste.

At first I thought it might be that the bowl just might be fully smoked, but when I removed the foil there was still plenty there. This has been true for 3 flavors/brand of shisha, so I don't think its the tobacco. Three different heads also.

Any ideas?

The flavor you get from the tobacco is coming from staming the leaves/juice. Its no uncommon to use up all the flavor after an hour or so based on brand, heat etc etc. You cant go by what the tobacco looks like, the top will be burnt but the rest looks fine, its always like that.

did you get a massive dripping of juices out of the bowl?
did you mix up the tobacco really well before packing?
some flavoring components are humidity sensitive, has the humidity been changing in vegas recently?

What's the age on the tobacco. Also what types, molasses or honey/glycerin based? The older they get the weaker the flavoring becomes. And honey/glycerin based I have noticed lose flavor easily. Also you said that it was in the last couple days, are you storing them as air tight as you can and in a dark(cupboard, pantry, etc) place?

I've experienced this with AF Gold Grape and Eskandarani, Fantasia Blueberry, and also Romman Pineapple. With the exception of the Romman they were all very drippy. All were mixed well and bowls properly packed. I use Coconara coals.

I do notice a lot of juices dripping into the vase and also the head grommet is covered when I remove the bowl.

Also, I was able to decrease this somewhat with frequent purges.

Try a small phunnel bowl if you haven't already, they really extend the flavor.
