Default I stand corrected....

So I finally tried Tangiers. I had been critical in the past because it sounded like a lot of hassle. Well I gotta say, it was well worth it. A new fanboy is born.

This forum was a big help. Following the tips that have been posted certainly made sure that I had a good first experience. The flavor was Horchata. I let it acclimate (spread out in a large tupperware tub) for about 24 hours. I used a medium Phunnel bowl, overpacked (but not super overpacked). 3 coconara coals. Sessions lasted a little over an hour and the very rich flavor lasted throughout. No harshness at all.

So to all of those who provided helpful hints, thank you. Suggestions for the next must-have flavor will be very welcome.

Awesome! I just got into tangiers, I had to fiddle around with it before I got it right. But yes, the flavor never dies. Not to mention my preferred vendor now carried all the tangiers lines.

I tried some of the lucid watermelon last night, and it was crazy tasty. I loved the flavor and it never faded or got harsh. I am impressed by lucid, but I have to try more flavors and lines to be able to judge it properly.

Its good to see that another member has nailed Tangiers.

I think the reason why I never got it to smoke was because I was packing wayyyy too much tobacco to a point that juice would run down the phunnel bowl. Not only that, I think I was using too much heat.

I don't think I'll be trying the reg line again until I get the Lucid smoking through the reg tangiers packing way. When I do, I sure as hell buying more Tangiers

the lucid line is washed and doesn't need to be smoked any special way.You can use any bowl and smoke it like any other brand. Although a funnel is suggested.

I know. But when I pack it like any other tobacco...I can't taste ANYTHING! I have to try to taste a flavor in order to get it. I'm just gonna try to pack it like reg tangiers to see if there is a difference. Like it smokes good, but hardly any flav and the tobacco smells like it should too

I packed my tangiers lucid watermelon sample I got from bung just like I did my AF or other brands of tobacco. I accidently under packed it a little actually, and I still had nice clouds and that bangin' watermelon flavor. I dunno what is up in your case.

Eck Idk...Maybe I'm just not used to Tangiers yet or something?!? Ahhh I've gotta keep testing this stuff out and see what works for me.

BTW avid Tangiers smokers, I have a question. When you put the foil and the holes when packing the Lucid line, do you have to poke the holes ALL the way through like reg tangiers or just make the holes like one would with reg. shisha brands?

Idk my set up is sprinkling the tobacco all around the small phunnel and a lil under the rim like all regular shishas. Then, I just poke the holes in the foil like any other brand.

Well my set up is different, due to the fact that I don't have a phunnel, but here goes!

I have a mya saray bowl. I sprinkly the shisha in there just like any other tobacco, pack it up to the same height and everything. I throw my foil on and poke 2 rings of holes in the middle of the bowl. I then poke 4 HUGE on each side of the bowl. I then lay a 1/3 exotica stick coal over the middle of the bowl but not to the point to where it is covering one of the big breather holes. It works great now, but I had to play with it to get it just right.

You guys should def try the Kashmir Peach out, its really something different!

Last night I mixed some of my K Peach with some K Cherry. WOW. IT was actually pretty damn good, the peach stood out more that the cherry but every once and a while I got a hint of cherry. Just something to try
