    The Tangier's small is so freaking thick, this bowl is gonna be the best I own without a doubt, and even better is the unglazed portion in comparison to like, an alien or 80ft, is far less porous and much more dense, I thought it would hold more shisha but no complaints, and looks like my shika, Egyptian, and alien will all fit the lotus as well, 80ft maybe if I really tried but I probably won't bother

    I have seen it, by hookahboss right? I tried that method watching it side by side as I loaded my 80ft and it ended up being a disaster and I ended up throwing the tobacco back in the tub, I don't know what I did wrong but oh well, I've tried a lot of different stuff and all I can say at this point was my only success with Tangier's, including noir, was out of the alien, but now my new Tangier's small bowl just came in and may change things, as well as my new lotus

    Hey man, don't worry if its starbuzz, its a brand that gets some flack but smoke what you like, I've had stuff I liked from there and I'm still itching to try black mint one of these days, also if anyone cares how the Tangier's journey is fairing for my noob ass, then its going quite well, I was getting good results with the alien and this time went with two canary's straight on top and made my holes wider, instead of waiting for the flavor to come through on the second round of coal its coming out nice right off the bat and sweeter, cloud volume a bit low but I'm liking the flavor enough to just leave it alone, they're supposed to get bigger over time which they do. Yes this is a lighter flavor but now I'm enjoying it quite a bit more, its a lot sweeter and brighter right now which I assume is because its birquq, really nice, I hope I keep it going this well the whole session before bet, also forgot to say, nice fruit bowl, haven't tried doing one myself but I will one of these days! Probably with AF orange mint out of an orange on my first attempt, that or Nakhla double apple out of a red apple PS: I used to get a lot of boil over for awhile with Tangier's, and its gradually going down, so far not getting any as far as I can tell

    A lot of people swear by that flavor but either I messed it up too or it just isn't strong. That's how horchata and dark plum was as well What kind of bowl is that? Also I'm going with the exact same set up, last bowl went 4 rounds of canary's 3 pieces each, looked like it could go longer after the fact but I think I trapped the bottom bits at the spire It's a generic phunnel. They are pretty wide around but shallow It seems decent but I feel like the flavor doesn't kick in until later on in the session, like after my second round of coal or so and its still pretty mellow, at least its smoking great though, twice in a row I'm getting smooth smoke and monster clouds with the time expected out of this bowl, but when the flavor comes through weak like this I feel like its user error lol, oh well though at least it is enjoyable

    Smoking orange soda out of my alien in the KM, one thing I can say is that I've gotten good results from this bowl even with noir, don't know what's different about packing other bowls but whatever, this flavor seems light, is that how it is or just me?

    I feel kind of bad, I don't like to complain, in hindsight I'd order from 5star over HS, even if I keep getting calls on every order for something I picked to be out of stock xD, HS has given me a lot of expired tobacco in the past and recently, I remember first trying nakhla and every time I ordered it from HS I didn't understand why anyone liked it because it was always extremely dry and flavorless, now I know it's because they gave me so much expired shisha lmao

    I don't know.... I found them to be just right and getting just a spot on amount of heat with only 3 coals using my Egyptian bowls. I will most likely use 4 with the Minzari crown or with the fumo. I'm also totally digging the longevity of the coals, I just clocked it at exactly hour and a half before getting started on a second round. So I think these will be my second go-to coals when I run out of Ecocha. As for your question, yes it was a small box of Charcoflare coals. I haven't opened them yet because I thought they those made especially for the aloud lotus so I put them aside for emergency coals. Glad you like them man. Oh charcoflare are just standard cubes. The lotus ones are brand new so Alex isn't handing those ones out anytime soon! Awesome order! If I didn't have 2 kilos Id order something similar but I have to chill out this year lol Too bad 5star ran out of voltage, Alex said he only smokes pataschio breeze or whatever from SS, if I was interested in that and I figured sure, idk if he reads the forum but he was a lot nicer this time around and on the ball lol

    So I got most of what I said I would, but smaller I suppose, I did fork over the cash for a lotus finally and got the Tangier's small since you can't really beat 1/3 the price of a bowl like that, which I've actually wanted for awhile so I figured it justified me getting a lotus, gonna be trying limoncello, hey man, majestic bru, and voltage, I got half a killo of nakhla double apple and I think that's it, I still have enough coal so that's whatever, the lotus might be pretty cool though

    I'm smoking some more peppermint mocha, scrubbed up the shika bowl again and it seems a little damaged but usable, I either got a bowl that was glossed poorly or I put it through thermal shock but its working just fine, 4 titanium's on this semi packed bowl just under the rim, still a great bowl though I may get another one since they're on the cheaper side, $15

    I think the tangiers small is the best. I think they are ten bucks on 5star right now Damn really? Maybe I'll get that one, I want a Tangier's bowl and they're usually $30 or more, I hope the sale lasts a couple more days so I can actually order it

    I don't throw my shisha away unless its unsmokeable or I've had it a long time and know I don't want it anymore, I usually keep it in case I'm out of the stuff I like and am waiting on an order to come in but I get that, I'm smoking some nakhla mint right now and its nice since I'm sick, wish I had some cardamom or something but this is good too Also DD I thought you had a Tangier's phunnel already?

    My next order might be pretty heavy, there's so many things I wanna try and stock up on, and I wanna get some more accessories in my inventory, I was planning on getting a Tangier's small or medium, one of those or an OG bowl like the egy, I did notice 5star sells the large Tangier's bowls and I'm tempted to get it just because the ease of use is from what I've heard, pretty ridiculous, other than that maybe a kaloud lotus... I've been a lazier smoker lately and have opted to using cube coals over flats half the time since I don't have to light a second round lmao, plus I just really want to try out the lotus and save the hassle for me when I'm tired and what have you, bit of a hefty investment but I might get it this next order, I also wanna give a couple social smoke flavors a try like voltage, maybe artic lemon but I think there was something else I wanted to try, don't remember, really wanna get my hands on some haze again as well and more AF, I'm forgetting some other things I want to try but I might get a half kilo or so of nakhla DA, Past couple months I'm always craving it whenever I run out. Oh yeah! Almost forgot I wanted the shika sandstorm bowl to dedicate to double apple as well, I know this isn't technically my "latest shisha order" but its more of a point of reference for myself plus I just felt like talking about it, if I get more Tangier's to play around with it'll just be cane mint so I save myself some headache but yeah, I didn't list everything but man there's just so many things I'd like to try. I did smoke myself a little sick of ice Apple though since I ran through half a kilo the second time I got it

    I like AF lemon mint but I find the lemon to be a bit on the light side, its been awhile since I had it and I remember it being good if only being slightly artificial tasting, nakhla lemon is decent but it tastes kind of tangy to me for some reason, an essential lemon oil taste like you'd see in some reviews definitely makes sense, personally if I smoke lemon or lemon mint flavors I'd stick to Tangier's mimon (if I can get it smoking good again lmao) and honestly mighty freeze by starbuzz. That stuff was pretty dang good and I should pick some up again soon, I do wanna try pure lemon mint and alchemist blend lemon mint as well though. Nakhla lemon is definitely good for some people but I don't think its my cup of tea, I'm a much bigger fan of the mint (from the regular line) and double apple of course.

    Smoking orange soda, it's going okay I guess, not harsh but the flavor isn't right, I think I burned it at the beginning lmao

    After that post I decided to show my km some love and on my second session with it, I had nakhla lemon and mint earlier and I was ripping pretty crash clouds from that tobacco I normally don't get, I forgot how much help the open draw does for clouds, more peppermint mocha for now Also CHX coals incase anyone is curious are okay, I'm using them now for the first time and they produce a little too much heat for my comfort, but that's just me, I don't like my stuff to smoke as strong as some, my guess is they're probably like cocourt flats but I haven't tried those

    Shika hookahs are really good, I have the sorya v3 and I use it pretty exclusively because I prefer the tighter draw on it over the extremely wide one on my km, I think it looks a lot better too and I own a silk butterfly. Have you seen the v4's? I think only HS has them right now but they look crazy, especially the jolly roger and forouk

    I use four and get great results every single time. I stand by them since you can't beat 240 coals for 8 bucks. God damn dude, they're that cheap? Hell I might order from 5star again just to pick some up and save some money Yup coupon code should be "leonara" it doesn't work with other offers mind you. If you would rather do 15% off you can use "JNUC" which works on anything not already on sale. I literally always have 2 boxes! Maybe I'll buy some haze and stuff from there, I'm pretty sure as long as I get the higher demand flavors I'll get fresh batches from 5star

    I just keep smoking peppermint mocha, friend came over and packed the 80ft again with titaniums and going for another set on my own, I think these coals go a full two hours if I push it with a wind cover all the way to the end, this stuff is pretty dang good though.

    Okay, after a two consecutive failed sessions burning my shisha both times, I finally cleaned out a hose and tried this peppermint mocha, fully lit titanium cubes this time too. Semi dense in an 80ft. So far its pretty good but the session just started, I heard this was a popular sell and I can see why, I expected more of a peppermint chocolate flavor but this is more like mocha coffee, don't know why I figured sweet chocolate but either way its good, its hard to tell but I think the sweetness from this is coming from the peppermint

    That's just fine by me, more stuff to watch really xD. Had another go with Tangier's and was a flop, little bit of that burning taste ghosted the hookah a bit even though I gave if a good rinse, smoking nakhla lemon with titanium cubes and so far I'm not in love with them, idk why but something about them is kinda off, maybe its just me Oh I know what it is, I didn't cook them all the way through

    So I got the chx coals, they aren't smaller than titanium's, if anything they're wider but flatter than the average titanium, it depends though some titanium flats are extremely wide and fat, the box is smaller and there's the same amount of coal so its safe so say they're all going to be thinner, they are a lot less porous like you'd see with cocourth, haven't tried them yet but I will later

    That's me everyday I wake up lmao, also trying this orange soda birquq, little harsh at the beginning but it smoothed out. Its pretty good but didn't get the full potential from the flavor yet. Also Tangier's is a lot more choppy now apparently
