1. A non-burning type flavor inhaler having a shape extending from a non-inhalation end toward an inhalation end along a predetermined direction, comprising:
an aerosol source that generates an aerosol;
an atomizer that atomizes the aerosol source without burning;
a power source that supplies power to the atomizer; and
a control unit that controls a power amount supplied from the power source to the atomizer, wherein
the control unit increases the power amount supplied to the atomizer stepwise from a reference power amount along with an increase in the number of puff actions for inhaling the aerosol.
