Default No flavor from smoke

So I'm smoking for the second time on my new hookah and the problem once again is that I'm getting almost no flavor from the tobacco. I dunno if its the tobacco itself or what but I taste almost nothing each time. Any tips?

Right now I'm smoking Hookah Hookah Strawberry.

You did punch holes in the foil, right?

Have you tried a different tobacco?

It most likely is the hookah hookah. I've tried some in my life and hardly got any flavor from it. It was very odd.

So far I've only tried a couple Hookah Hookah flavors and both only gave me a mild and indistinguishable flavor. I have some apple Al Fahker though so I'll give that a try.

Yeah try the Al Fakher. You'll definitely get a flavor from that. But eck, is it the DOUBLE apple or reg apple cuz I know the double has anise (licorice) in it.

Regular. I heard that about the double apple and decided against it.

Strawberry is a very faint flavor. Try something else.

i would recommend a brand with stronger flavors. AF and starbuzz are great starter brands that pack a punch flavorwise and don't have much buzz. getting some better coals would be better too.

I think the juices might have ran down your stem. lol Try it with a phunnel if you have one. You've might have been slightly burning the tobacco too.
