Default total tangiers flop?

ok so im not sure if its just the humidity here or what but i cannot get these tangiers to acclimate, and the schnozzberry i had is not full flavored any more either.

i tried the fridge and freezer and it didnt work either, is there any other way of getting this stuff to get the humidity out of it to get it where it should be. i have acclimated it up to almost 100 hours and still havent gotten good results (it is like 55-75% humidity inside here so that doesnt help at all)

any suggestions?

you want to acclimate it to the current humidity. If you are trying to fight the acclimation to the current humidity then that would explain it.

some flavors seem hit or miss for me. some will smell amazing right out of the bag while others won't smell right after a week of acclimating.

IN FL, I have never been able to acclimate tangiers. I gave up and gave it all away.

well for the fighting the humidity ive just been leaving it out (left it out for like 60 hours straight and it didnt work)

ya i noticed some are find right away and others arent. i know its possible to do it here cause the local place i go to back home (hour drive away) has tangiers in the lounge and they taste amazing, i just havent been able to talk to the guys there about it cause i havent been back home since school started.

im fearing i will have to wait till winter when it gets a lot drier and then do it then, but i know there has to be a way.

sooooo saddening since lime tangiers is one of my favorites and ive used like 125-150 grams just trying to get it to smoke

Your not leaving it open to let it dry out, it's so that it will even out with the surrounding humidity and adjust to it. Mine comes and goes. One week it smells insane then next is like crap. But it comes back when it settles down. Right now all 5 flavors smell fantastic. Tomorrow they may make me puke.

If you are putting it in the fridge or freezer I would not suggest that. The air in there is very dry because of the compressor ( how it stays cold) and will humidity shock the shisha further.

well eric (from tangiers) suggested it seeing as when it comes out of the package the acclimation (according to him) is letting the shisha dry out some, hence the reason why it takes longer in higher humidity. this is my understanding from talking with eric for a little while on the phone a few weeks ago
