Default nakhla earl grey, good but STRONG

ok so i got a sample of nakhla earl grey and smoked it straight, its pretty good straight, i think im going to try to mix a little lemon and maybe some honey flavor or mint or something sweet but not much of other flavor to kind of cut it and sweeten it up a little. but what i noticed is that when i packed up another bowl after it i still got a lot of the taste (i guess the bergamot oil coated the whole rig) and even with blue myst i was tasting like it was mixed with it.

everyone else notice this?

and what are good choices to mix with it, i like it but its not exactly smokable to me for a full hour+ session

I don't notice it tainting my hookah. 2 great mixers are mint ,Nakhla and Mizo Mint I've tried (abu ronin's idea) or Nakhla Mandarin or Sinbad Manadarin any orange would work I'd guess (ZenSilk's idea). I love Nakhla Sheherazade Earl Grey straight most times though.

It doesn't make the hookah smell at all, as it's a very neutral flavor. It's kind if like after you smoke Tangiers, and instead of your hookah smelling like a "hookah" it smells like the flavor you just smoked. It's what I like best about Tangiers.

nahkla earl grey is simply one of the finest products on the market. Let's just clear that up right here and now. Ok, as for mixing, mint is good idea as is a touch of lemon. But my favorite EG mix is 50/50 w/plain desi murli.
I've never noticed a residual effect from EG but that may be because when I have it on hand, it is primiarily the only thing I smoke.

im not saying its bad at all, i really liked it, it just left the smell for me. i really like earl grey tea and liked the tobacco it was a great smoke just want to add a little to sweeten it up a touch

Matt, Nakhla Earl Grey will put some hair on your chest! and you will soon give into the delightful taste and enjoy it with gusto!

Seriously though, it may take some getting use to, but I imagine it would be good mixed with some other flavors? I just smoke it straight .. it rocks!

its a good smoke no doubt, but if you dont like earl grey tea you will have some issues. now if you like it, its greattttttttttttttt!

i would suggest getting a 50 gram of it though incase its not your bag. and while others say they dont have issues i would suggest smoking it as your only bowl or your last bowl of the day or at least smoking something extremely strong after it to prevent getting the flavor cross over

Yeah try the 50gm to be sure you like it .. but be careful as Abu Ronin says, and I quote! "It will make your pants tight in the front!"

Smoking it right now. It's a great flaovr but I only smoke it once in a while. I agree it does take a while to smoke out of your hookah. Once time I mixed it with AW vanilla and fusion orange. Pretty damn good. I also mixed it with jewels honey for a good mix. Anything that would go well in a cup of tea mixes well with it. Lemon and honey are great.

Funny, I don't drink cofee only lots of tea. The Earl Grey is the only Nakhla flavour I don't like.
