Default Nakhla losing flavour after a week :(

Both my Nakhla DA and Orange lost all its flavour after a week of storage. I stored the shishas in air tight containers (and I don't think the cointainers are the problem because they work fine with other shishas). So is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this with Nakhla. Its such a shame cause I love thier flavours.

I've never had dis prob with Nakhla. Maybe the Nakhla was old?

Once, a tube of Chocomint did this to me, but it was VERY dry (and I think slightly older than the box listed). If the tobacco dries out too much, I bet the flavor would go away - since it's Nakhla, you already expect a slightly harsher smoke than say Starbuzz, so maybe wouldn't notice that part of dry shisha.

Get to the bottom of the container, NK is dry but it still has its juices and it does run to the bottom. I rotate my jars from top to bottom and so on all the time. The second I see the bottom getting dark, i flip it.

I always use nakhla and I don't have that problem at all... so maybe is because the tobacco was bad stored, I mean the shop that sold it to you didn't store it well, or maybe it is old but try to do the rotating stuff that martello told you. Good luck!

i read the topic and thought "oh man, what size bowl are you using for a week long smoke!" my nakhla is alright, i keep it in air tight jars so that it doesn't lose whatever flavor is left.

it could of been the jar even though their airtight when you close em theres still that pocket of air in there try some double zip ziplocks and press out most of the air if you can that should help cause it keeps the molasses pressed on the tobacco
