Default Shisha loosing flavor

Hey guys,

I have had some of my Al Fahkar shisha for a month or two now and I have put the bags into zip lock bags to try and keep them fresh. Well, lately even after I mix the bag up before putting the shisha into the bowl, I have noticed hardly any taste from the smoke!

People have said that they could smell the flavor from the smoke but you cannot taste it when hitting the hookah?! Any thoughts or suggestions on how you keep the flavor in the shisha?

Maybe you should let whatever amount you plan to smoke acclimate for a bit? :/

I preserve my AF in the fridge, when I smoke I pack it immediately and let it acclimate in the bowl for 5-15 minutes while coals light. It preserves the flavor.

I would never put shisha in the fridge, because I wouldn't want to shock it going from cold to extreme hot. If its a good batch id play with heat or something before id go crazy.
