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.

    The dehydration bit is spot-on. Never vape in the morning as your body has gone anywhere from 5-10 hours without any water and your vape will taste pretty nasty. I’ve noticed that vaping an entire 60 mL bottle of my favorite juice didn’t kill off my love for that juice but it has diminished some. Mixing up the flavors is key. Find three flavors you really like and rotate them. You can either run each bottle dry or swap with every tank. Just be sure to keep three different coils for each flavor, that way you’re getting a pure flavor draw. Mixing flavors with the same coil mutes the flavor unless it’s very similar to what you’ve already had in the tank.

    Good general list.

  4. I found a kangertech box mod or something like that. My kangertech pen gives me issues with flavor and leaking. I’m about to be buying a mod or box however you call those square looking vapes, but I don’t want to get one and if not produce good flavor and stuff. My friends does him perfect with his box one, but there’s so many brands of different kinds and I wouldn’t know which one to get. Can y’all tell me of ones that might be popular and in stores and ones that are good to use? I’m lost and want to get a perfect one.????

      I recommend going to the SMOK TFV4. Affordable but good in quality and has many coil options that will get you where you need to go. Their website has a guide for what coils to use for certain configurations. You can buy a bigger tank, which I recommend if you want longer vape sessions without refilling. I spend just under $100 for a TFV4, 80W 5,000 mAh Eleaf mod, and an extended 6 mL tank. This is a great setup for new/intermediate users as everything is still very much automated in terms of sensing new coils and adjusting power as-needed. Don’t skimp too much on your config. You shouldn’t need to replace it yearly if you’re not abusing it and not constantly vaping. Your mods can last a couple years but that’s entirely dependent on quality and usage (they use similar battery tech to cellphones so battery decay happens after so many charges – usually after a year or so). Your entire tank setup (coils, atomizer, etc.) should have a longer shelf life if built well. That’s why I recommend sticking to a good brand. SMOK is an established name and I have a few friends who stick to their products religiously because of how well they’ve performed over the last 2 years.
