Acclimating Tangiers

Yes, while continuing my procrastination to read about the Flu Pandemic. I will eventually get to that. Just, after dinner.

So I thought I would let you know, if you haven't looked it up already, about the process of acclimating Shisha. Mostly you only do it for Tangiers because it's so strong. Read the labels it comes with if you do go and buy it because they will also tell you to let it sit in the air for a while. And that's what 'acclimating' it is, leaving it to air for a few hours before using it.

I'm currently doing this with my Tangiers Guava flavor. What I normally do is leave it out by a window (so the smell isn't overwhelming in the room) in Tupperware for about three hours. It is necessary to do this with Tangiers, but not really for any other brands of tobacco. It doesn't hurt though, and keeping it separate from the box is always a good idea. The tobacco constantly leaks in those cardboard boxes. You can also store it in the fridge if you've held onto it for a long time.

I'm very happy my roommate hasn't complained about the Guava yet, and that she's not an anti-smoking advocate or anything.

Hey! I'm eighteen. I love elephants. My personal movie collection consists of Slumdog Millionaire, Mulan, and the Illusionist. (not saying those are my favorite movies, I just own them) I am a hookah fanatic. I am NOT a socialist, even if my Bio teacher wishes I was. I'm a college kid, a freshman journalism major. Oh I also eat popcorn daily.
