Is there a point when it comes to greater water temp, the flavor increase no longer applies?

Yeah warm/room tempature water brings the flavor out a lil more.

But imo, I like cold/ice water better since it makes the smoke so much smoother. But the downside is that it kinda lessens the smoke compared to warm water

that's exactly what I do, but room temp water does make a difference.

I made a thread about this. I noticed that with Tangiers Lucid there was an increase in flavor when I went from SUPER ICE COLD water to room temp with only 5 ice cubes.

the only time I have found it noticable is between room temp, and having the ice completely filled with Ice and water from the fridge (so full of Ice I had to steer the stem around it all)

i'd go for room temp water. If you go hotter, you risk breaking your base.

alot of people, especially tangiers smokers, preffer to use ice water because it takes the edge off the harshness of the smoke.It should be noted however, that if your tangiers is too harsh your not smoking it properly.
I preffer tapwater abit cooler than room temp personally.If your water is super ice cold it can seriously nuetralize alot of the flavor.

with something like a traditional shisha.
with many flavors and what not.
I know that only time I notice flavor loss is with like I stated ALOT of ice, or with shisha's that are mixed. like 4 flavors mixed, with just a small amount of one shisha.

You'll get bigger/smoother clouds out of colder water, and a stronger taste out of warmer water.
As for myself, I'm with Abu. I usually use half cold tap water and half warm tap water, which leaves the water a bit colder than room. That was it's nice and resfreshing to begin, and as the session draws out, the water warms up, keeping the taste coming.

Ice chambers have almost the same effect on the flavor as the temperature of the water. Except if your water is warmer than the ice chamber, it will sort of heat up the smoke before it hits you lungs.
