Buying e-liquid online has so many benefits, such as being able to explore a wide variety of flavour options and not having to leave your home to do so. E-liquid and vape products are delivered to your home quickly, and you can enjoy being kept up-to-date with the latest innovations by simply visiting your preferred stockist’s website.
However, there’s one problem that might arise from time to time, even if you purchase e-liquid in a physical store. And that’s ending up with a flavour you don’t like as much as you thought you would.
Regardless of why you don’t enjoy it, you may be wondering what your options are if you end up with a flavour that doesn’t tantalise your taste buds as you expect. Well, you can do any of these things below.
Adjust Your Vape Device’s Setup
Surprisingly, you may be able to adjust the flavour of your e-liquid simply by playing with the settings of your vape device. If you have two different vaping devices, such as mouth-to-lung and direct-to-lung, consider trying your e-liquids in both.
You can also lower the wattage and close the airflow vents of the tank and see if that makes a difference. Sometimes, a simple adjustment of your vaping settings can be enough to enhance the flavour and make it more palatable.
Steep the E-Liquid
When vaping first started growing in popularity, some people had problems with the harshness of their e-liquid, or even one flavour component overpowering the others.
So, they came up with something called ‘steeping’, which some vapers would call a game-changing process. It describes the process of manually aging an e-liquid to change the flavour. In some cases, any harsh flavours are mellowed out, and any distinctive notes are toned down for a more palatable vaping experience.
All you have to do is open the bottle for a few seconds, close it, then shake it. Do this daily for a week before testing the flavour again. The flavour changes may just surprise you.
Try It In Another Situation
Depending on the e-liquid flavour you chose, you may discover that it simply doesn’t suit all occasions. For example, you might have tried to vape a dessert-like flavour immediately after tucking into an actual dessert. The sweet-on-sweet may not have fit your palate at that moment.
Or, you might have tried an e-liquid after eating or drinking something that changed the flavour in your mouth. Don’t be in too much of a hurry to give it the thumbs down. Wait a few days and approach it again with a clean palate. You may find your opinion has changed.
Mix It With Another Flavour
If there’s something not quite enjoyable about your latest e-liquid purchase, and you can’t quite put your finger on it, consider mixing it with another flavour you have. For example, the intensity of tobacco can be toned down with a sweet flavour, and you can spice up a fruity flavour with menthol or vice versa.
In most situations, only a few drops of the second flavour can be necessary to change how it tastes. Even if you don’t like the new flavour, it’s not a significant loss when you weren’t keen on continuing with the original flavour in the first place.
Give It Away or Swap It
Rather than waste an entire bottle of high-quality e-liquid simply because you don’t like how it tastes, consider giving it to someone who would be more than happy to use it. They may want to try different flavours, or they simply enjoyed it more than you do.
Some friends might also be willing to swap. If they have a flavour they don’t like, you might enjoy it more than they do. A straight swap can be beneficial for both parties.
Buy a Different Flavour
If all the other options seem too hard, you can always buy another flavour. If you’re unsure what the best options are or what you would like, don’t be afraid to contact e-liquid store assistants for advice.
Both in person and online, they can provide a wealth of helpful information based on your vaping habits and preferences. Before long, you can have a new flavour that’s hopefully more to your liking than the one you previously purchased.
