we should be able to get a hookah101 lesson from the responses we get. i never put much thought into it though but I'm sure the guys who love Nakhla DA will chime in.

OO. Ok, I pack it slightly down in an Egyptian bowl. I allow about 1/4" of space from the foil to the tobacco, and poke 3 rows of holes about 1/2" apart, leaving about a quarter sized space in the middle with no holes. I use 3 coals to start, and by the time it's going I take off 1 coal to keep the heat level.

way too meticulous zen! DA shouldn't need all that much attention to smoke.Throw it in, put on some coals and smoke. that's how I roll.

I want to say yes buy a jar but then I would be aknowledging an inconsistency w/nakhla which I refuse to do!( but yes, the jars are good to me.)

I got some really dry stuff. I assumed that this was his problem, so I told him how to manage it without glycerin.

Mine involves a slight overpack, but you still keep it below the rim. Nakhla should never be harsh... I think you need some glycerin man.. or need to buy the glass jar.

I always overpack nakhla. But the nakhla i get here is much more wet than what you get. I always open the leaves well and pack it a few millimeters over the rim. then just put the foil on top. Hole pattern should never matter.

The best way to pack nakhla DA is to mix it with some nakhla mint about 80% double apple and 20% mint and over pack the clay bowl don't use a vortex for nakhla enjoy hope this helps.

you mean with overpack that the foil should touch the tobacco right? cus thats what I think when you say overpack but since u said before to have space between foil and shisha.. hmm.. Then I assume you mean overpack like not touiching the foil but be mouch tobacco in small space.. right
and also.. Is there really a difference between nakhla bought in package or in jar??

Nakhla DA from the jar is perhaps the best flavour in the world. I slightly overpack it, and ALWAYS use traditional Egyptian clay bowl, and when in a rush use one and half QL's. Needs more heat than the wetter brands like AF.

hmm.. nakhla DA needs more heat then wetter shisha? That makes no sence to me.. I thought it was the other way around ?
Anyway I bought a DA in the normal paper 250 gram package and it was no big hit actually.. Cant understand why the jar would be different? where can i buy this jar online ?

DA when fresh is really sticky, you can tell it has honey in it. If it's too dry put one drop of light (in terms of flavour, if you get what i mean) honey on your finger and then mix the tobacco with your fingers so it goes all over the tobacco.

Best way to pack it is firm (not tight) in the bowl right up to the top of the rim. Foil it and poke toothpick holes in it. Add more heat than you normally would need. Smoke away.

I have added 1/4 a teaspoon of glycerin and honey to nakhla before, the same amount that is added to Desi merli.
