One of the most important things for any vaper is getting the best flavour out of your E-Liquid. Sometimes, you can all of a sudden lose taste from your E-Liquid, this is called vapers tongue. From time to time, the majority of vapers will experience Vapers Tongue and this is completely normal.
Why do you experience Vapers Tongue?
It occurs when your taste buds get exhausted of the flavour that you’re vaping. The most common reason you experience Vapers Tongue is because you’ve been vaping the same flavour for too long. Basically, your senses get used to the flavour so you don’t notice it as much as you did at the beginning.
If you smoke and vape, this could be another reason why you may experience Vapers Tongue. This is because smoking damages your tastebuds. Drinking alcohol or eating spicy or sour foods can also give the same effect.
Due to VG and PG draining the moisture from their immediate environment, this can dehydrate and dry your mouth. Dehydration can lead to a loss of your sense of taste, making this another reason why you might experience Vapers Tongue.
Vapers Tongue can occur if you are suffering from a cold as you may have a blocked nose which will significantly lessen the flavour that you can taste.
Now we know what causes Vapers Tongue, the question is how to fix it?
Switch to a different flavoured E-Liquid
The most common and easiest way to solve Vapers Tongue is by switching to a different flavoured E-Liquid. If you’re vaping a dessert flavour, try switching to a fruity flavour which is a bit sharper. Or if you like a tobacco flavour, try changing to a more menthol flavour.
Drink more water
As we said earlier, one cause of Vapers Tongue is because of the VG and PG drying out your mouth. Therefore, drinking lots of water to stay hydrated throughout the day could bring back the flavour of your E-Liquid or even prevent you from losing the taste in the first place.
Cleanse your palate
You can cleanse your palate with many different things. Some people suggest smelling coffee grounds or sucking on a lemon or using mouth wash.
This suggestion may be quite obvious, however because smoking effects your taste buds, stopping smoking as soon as possible will help you regain the flavour of your E-Liquid.
The key thing to remember is that Vapers Tongue is usually a temporary problem and you don’t always have to do anything to try and stop it if you are experiencing it. Your sense of taste should return relatively quickly on its own accord. However, many vapers have found that the above tips help regain your taste quicker.
If none of the above reasons are the cause of your Vapers Tongue, it could be worth taking a quick trip to the doctors as persistent lack of taste could be a symptom of something else. For example, stress and anxiety can have effects on your sense of taste.
