What is Vaper's Tongue

Later in this blog, we will cover some tips that can help fix the issues, Because no one likes a lame tongue that will ruin the taste of your vape juice sensation.
What Causes Vapers Tongue
We have a few thousands taste buds in our mouth which regenerate frequently. To keep optimal tasting for our taste buds, our tongue needs to be kept moist for the taste buds to work correctly. Vaping can regularly cause our tongue to fatigue resulting in it drying out and losing flavour.
Another culprit is the sense of smell. Smell can account for up to 70% of perceived flavour. Some flavours can only be tastes through smell. If we lose it due to a blocked nose or just a general loss of smell, it can damp the character of a vape.
