Default No Taste at all !

Mayday, Mayday, Mayday

I get no taste whatsoever

No bad taste, good taste, harsh taste

Nothing

Just lots of almost tasteless smoke

What is that

-try blowing on it till its fully lighted (orange)
-make sure you're hookah has no air-leaks
-make sure you foil is perforated , not touching the tobacco
, and closing the bowl of exept where the coal is
-make sure you're tobbaco is fresh/wet not smoked before (honey it if necceseary)
-make sure you're "one direction vent" is working (closed if you pull)

hope that helps

Coals are fully lit and bright gold all around
There are no air leaks whatsoever (hose, hose port, base, valve, bowl)
Foil is well perforated and not touching the tobascco
It is closing the bowl
Tobacco is fresh and used it few days ago was OK, then for three days in a row was not.
My valve is working (closed when I pull and open when I blow air

thats strange , i'm pretty sure any material would smoke under those conditions

its most likely your tobacco , (my selfmade tobacco doesn't smoke either unless i add a cola-sirop smoke liquid and honey)

try adding , hookah-honey or regular honey (just a little bit if regular)
then fold a bit of foil untill its thick , cut it so it becomes like a "grill"
put it direct on the tobacco , and put your coal on top of it....
(thats how i smoke self-made tobacco...)

Although this usually has a bad effect on the regular tobacco , you might wanna try it

grtz

More heat would make it harsh. I tried it.

Also this is the amount of heat/coal I used every day

AF Grape and AF Apple.

These tubs smoked very well on Thursday and had no taste since Friday ... Makes no sense that they caused it !

I am a pro, smoking for 9 years straight now. Also I have been packing the same way on Thursday as I packed on Friday, wonderful taste on thursday, zero taste Friday


Anyways, I think I hurt my sinus smoking too much on Thursday (3+ hours, 3 bowls back to back). I am gonna start on a cortisone nasal spray today to stop the inflammation. Plus quitting for a few days too.

Problem diagnosed HOPEFULLY

My doctor says my long session last Thursday might've given me a sinus infection/inflammation .... I am on a nasal spray (Flixonase/Fluticasone) and Strepsils for my throat, and I am not smoking (hope I can resist the temptation) till next Saturday at the very least.

No I am not. I am hypersensitive (i.e.: two capsules can kill me in 15 minutes) to almost every antibiotic (ampicillin/penicillin/amoxicillin), so my choices for antibiotics are limited, which makes my doctors limit my usage of antibiotics to really really bad cases, otherwise I'd develop resistence to the already-limited choices
