Default Why does ice in the base dull the flavor?

I’ve always known this but I like my hookah ice cold. I don’t really understand why ice in the base often kills the flavor. Can someone enlighten me?

Cooling generally numbs your palate. That's why foods served cold need to be seasoned more aggressively than foods served hot. There are other things that come into play here, but that's the short answer.
