If you are looking on the Internet for information about the Vapen of E Liquides, you have probably encountered the term Vaper's Tongue. This term describes the phenomenon where you as a steamer vapen after some time vapen the taste sensation of certain E Liquides can no longer properly perceive. Fortunately there is a very clear cause and the solution is also quite simple. Below we tell you more.
The nose is more important than the tongue for the taste experience
The English term Vaper's Tongue could be translated into German with the word smoker's tongue, but this is not an exact description of the phenomenon, because technically it is not the tongue that determines the taste sensation for the most part. The taste papillae are located on the tongue and at the back of the oral cavity, but the nose plays a much greater role in our taste experience.
The taste buds on the tongue are responsible for differentiating between the five known flavours: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and savoury. The upper nose sensors are used to refine the distinction between the individual flavours. The difference between raspberry and banana, for example, is also mainly felt with our nose.
Exhaustion of the sense of smell is inevitable
Vaper's Tongue has little to do with the tongue in this way, but is above all a phenomenon of olfactory exhaustion. In other words, the sense of smell becomes insensitive to a taste it has been or will be confronted with on many occasions. So if you steam the same E Liquid every day, with always the same E cigarette, sooner or later this reduced taste experience will occur.
Some people experience Vaper's Tongue only after months of steaming, while others experience an E Liquid that does not taste as good the second time as the first time.
Stop smoking and drink plenty of fluids.
Fortunately there are some things you could do to avoid a Vaper's Tongue as much as possible. If you still smoke cigarettes, for example, we would recommend that you stop smoking them immediately. E Cigarette is not only an excellent healthy alternative so that you can get your nicotine, for example, but traditional tobacco is also the cause of a greatly reduced taste experience. And that is a pity.
Your lifestyle also has an influence on the development of the Vaper's Tongue. Drinking too little is a well-known cause of a reduced taste sensation, because the mouth becomes drier and a thin film forms over the taste sensors. Certainly in combination with the steam of an E cigarette the dry feeling becomes even stronger. Drinking enough is therefore very important.
Important: Change your E Liquid occasionally.
The last and most effective solution is simply an occasional variation of your E Liquides. "You can get used to anything" is a frequently heard statement. Even the tastiest and tastiest flavors are no exception. Make sure that they are different E Liquides with several flavours So you can change quickly if necessary and enjoy a completely different taste.
For example, do you taste less and less earth bear aroma with your E Liquid? Please don't make the mistake of switching to a raspberry aroma, for example, but in this case try a tobacco flavour that you have never tasted or tried before. The more drastic the change in taste, the stronger the taste experience. We wish you every success!
