Default First Smoke

Hello all. I bought my first hookah a few days ago from a local smoke shop (I have no idea what kind of hookah it is, I'll post some pics when i have time) and I smoked it this morning for the first time. Other than the occational cigar I don't smoke, but this was great. The smoke was smooth as could be and not the least bit harsh. I could inhale deeply with no coughing or burning what so ever. Lots of thick white clouds. I think I did everything right. I poked lots of little holes in the layer of tinfoil, submerged the stem 1/2 an inch inder the ice water, waited until the coals were red hot, ashed and rotated them ever 5-10 minutes. If there is anything I could do to improve my smoke please let me know. I think I found my self a new hobbie! I used Rosetta Strawberry Creme tobacco today.

I do have a few questions though...

1) Why is my tounge black? Will this always happen?

2) Should I buy a cheep handheld fan to help heat up my coals? In my current situtation I'm stuck with using a lighter and lighting and bowing them was really a pain.

Thanks for the help!

I have absolutely no idea why your tongue is black. Maybe you didn't blow out the hose before using it?
Get some better tobacco if you want more smoke. Al Fakher, Fusion, and starbuzz will give you some nice clouds with very good flavor.

Yeah the hose probably had left over stuff from a smoking sesh previous to that. Coal will sometimes get sucked into the hose as smoking and did your tongue turn black like after your first 5-10 hits? If so then the hose wasn't cleaned before use.
