Make Your Juice Taste Better

Published on August 31st, 2014 | by TJ


How To Improve The Flavor of Your E Juice

The wide variety of e juice flavors is one of the main reasons that people decide to buy their first vape pen or Vape mod in the first place.

Who would want the disgusting taste of smoke when you can have just about any flavor imaginable thanks to vaping?

However, a common problem faced by both new and experienced vapers is that the flavor just isn’t as strong as they thought it would be.

There are a few main reasons for this:

When you had a flavor that you enjoyed but can no longer taste it (Vaper’s tongue), there is a problem with the e-juice, or there is a problem with your equipment.

Vaper’s Tongue

Vaper’s Tongue is a common problem faced by experience vapers.

Once you find your favorite flavor, it’s natural to want to vape that same flavor non-stop.

The problem is that you’ll tend to eventually lose your ability to taste that flavor.

Here are some of the common reasons:

1. You need to switch up your flavors

Once you’ve been vaping the same flavor for too long, your taste buds will become desensitized to it.

The solution? Either switch flavors or start vaping a stronger version of the same flavor. This will help your taste buds to regain the ability to taste the e liquid.

2. You’re dehydrated

Vaping can cause you to become dehydrated.

If this is the cause of your vaper’s tongue, just rehydrate and you should be able to taste again.

3. Colds (or any other illness that blocks the nasal passages)

Believe it or not, your sense of smell is critical to being able to taste things.

If your nasal passages are blocked due to a cold, your ability to taste your favorite flavor will be greatly reduced.

Once you recover you should be fine.

Problems With Your E Juice

Obviously, the actual e juice is the most important aspect vaping when it comes to flavor.

Here are some common problems with e juice:

1. It hasn’t been steeped long enough

It’s recommended that, when you purchase a new bottle of e-juice, you let it steep for at least a few days before vaping. Steeping allows the flavor to settle and sometimes improves the flavor dramatically.

2. You don’t have enough PG in your e-juice

Most e juices are a blend of PG and VG. Look for one with a larger amount of PG if you’re looking for a stronger flavor.

Start with a 50/50 ratio and work your way up until you find the right balance for you.

You can’t go wrong with an 80/20 ratio in favor PG.

This will usually give you the amount of flavor that you’re looking for.

Problems With Your Vaping Equipment

1. Wicking Material

Organic cotton has long been favored by people who build their own clearomizers and

atomizers. The silica wick that is most common in pre-built tanks doesn’t deliver as much flavor.

2. Tank is made out of plastic

Glass tanks are ideal for vapor flavor. Plastic tanks can reduce the quality of the flavor slightly.

3. You’re using a single coil vape tank

With a dual coil setup, more e liquid is in contact with the coils which causes more vapor to be produced.

When more vapor is produced, you’ll tend to get more flavor.

The only disadvantage is that your battery will run out quicker, but that what spare batteries are for, right?


Hopefully this article has helped you to identify some of the most common reasons that you aren’t getting the maximum amount of flavor from your vaporizer.

Thanks for reading and vape on!

    How do i get more flavor from my springer rda or my fireluke freemax rda rank because the clouds are awesome but comp ared to my baby beast oir cloud bbeast tje flavor is like barely tj ere i dont understand. I am new to doing rebuilables and the same juice is putstanding in the baby beast using Q2 coiks only or cloud beast tank. Hiwever, the cloud beast king is aweful on all levels when using the coils the tvfT12 so i had a cpil thats the one just before the T12 coils it is the pne that has the lightning bots pn the design of the outside of the smok king coils. Those seems to be much better but i stay away from the cliud kings from now pn. So why isnt my flavor as good as my baby beast or big baby beast trank s ?

    So when I first tried Silverback’s Lola I was in love with it. It tasted fine and I didn’t vape very much I still don’t. Literally I used it maybe 3 or 4 times and then it sat for around a week. Well the juice changes colors, the vape started tasting very bad, and the atomizer became very bad so I swapped atomizers and cleaned the tank. Ever since then my Smoke AL85 has been giving me very bad tasting puffs. I’ve tried different flavors and they all come out tasting the same. Like slightly burnt sugar. I’ve lowered the settings raised them no matter what I do it taste like this. Any advice? Recommended settings? Halp plx

    Interesting article. I wasn’t aware that your sense of smell can impact your ability to taste things. I recently had a cold and my E juice tasted a bit weird. I eventually changed it with another flavor. Good thing I came across your article. I will bookmark this page and keep this in mind for reference. Thanks.

    Great information! Does anyone know the best ejuice brands that are 50/50 vg/pg? Most of the brands that I’ve tried have been 70 vg /30 pg. Thanks!

    Oh, and i saw someone else mentioned smok Atomizers on this thread and i use the eleaf aster 100W mod (where any 22mm atomizer drops down inside it) with the smok Tfv8 baby beast with the t6 coil (6 coils .2 ohm) and it hits pretty nice at only 50 watts, especially with a slightly narrow bore drip tip. It’s like these strong little turbo vape engines (the 6 smok coils) are forcing a massive amount of flavorful vapor into this small tip where it’s rapidly condensed and shot into my mouth and i end up with good flavor and big clouds. But im always looking for more flavor. So any suggestions would be great. I would love to hear what people think are the best 22mm Atomizers. Thanks again!!

      I’ve been buying juice & DIY concentrates from Vape Wild and I’m always thrilled with my purchases. They have great prices and choices of VG/PG ratios as well as nicotine amounts. Good luck & happy vaping!
