Default Session isnt lasting long enough.

well ive been smoking shisha for a few years now and ive noticed, when i smoke it at home the flavour burns out after about 40 minutes but when i smoke it at a cafe it lasts as long as 1hour 45 mins so has anybody got any tips to make my session last longer.

My setup is an MYA shisha with a bowl full of AF tobacco, MYA washable hose, and 2 quick light coals.

Any help will be really appreciated.

notice at the cafe, they usually give you more coals?

also, the Mya bowls I have seen are pretty small compared to the ones used in cafes.

Put the coals on the outter edge ... and heat the "bowl" up instead of directly on top of the shisha, you will get a good long session and very favorable smoke. If you want HUGE clouds, move the coals in towards the middle, but be warned, it will burn your bowl up fast and you will lose flavor fast!

Cheers!

Try to control the heat maybe you're using to much coal and it makes the tobacco burns earlier, also don't put so much tobacco just put the right amount cause if you put too much you will burn the top of the bowl and the rest of the session you'll have that burnt flavor. good luck!
