When I first started (couple of weeks ago LOL) I watched all the vids on Youtube and thought that huge monster clouds was where its at, but after being on the forum and learning more and more, its flavor and taking the time to relax and enjoy the ritual of preparing your bowl and tasting the shisha that means more to me.

ive noticed, anyone who is new to hookah is usally concerned about cloud size and somewhat the flavor.

after being a shisha smoker for a long time, i really dont care about cloud size anymore. I know if i want, i can make the BIGGEST clouds but quality and taste is much more important to me.

I think if you have good flavour than you normally have good, decent amount of smoke. Not the biggest clouds, but i think it's enough. If you burn your shisha for bigger clouds, than you are a ...

all about the taste, but if you cook the shisha just right you get the most taste and a great thick cloud.

To me personally flavor is the driving factor, and moreso how long the flavor lasts. I find that brands like Nakhla and Tangiers that can hold their flavors throughout the session have great cloud production anyway. I think one leads to the other due to the quality of the tobacco.

Hope this helps!

i think without any cloud no one would enjoy hookah really half as much, part of the smoke just lingering and coming out of your mouth makes you relax. But yes flavour is much more important than a big cloud.

I like to savor the flavor for a while and when it dies, then i might throw on another 1/2 coal and possibly a windcover and get some huge clouds to make sure i dont waste any shisha

If you get a decent amount of one, and a great amount of the other id choose:

decent smoke
great amount of flavor.

(if you couldnt, then id get some new tobacco/a new rig)

Flavor trumps cloud size by a longshot in my book, if im getting a nice flavor with thin clouds i still enjoy it very much, but a crappy flavor with big clouds? euch.

I'm going to go with flavor on this because I would rather enjoy the taste of good shisha than to taste burnt shit and get huge clouds.

Flavor is more important to me, but without having nice fluffy clouds...you just kind of feel like your only getting half the package.

i think its the combination of both aspects. when you get big, fluffy white clouds and you get huge taste. it's both that makes me love hookah.

I agree with both pixelz and chadtizzle. You smoke to enjoy the flavor but may be disappointed if the smoke is not up to par with the flavor. I always want the best of both worlds.

You definately need a balance of the two, although I am an admirer of the clouds!
