Flavour is a very personal thing. It’s shaped by our cultural experiences, our childhoods , and previous experience s . That’s why it’s great to learn what others try when mixing flavours. But how does flavour really work? Crazily enough, scientists still aren’t actually sure exactly why taste buds work the way they do !!
You maybe have experienced this yourself. Have you ever tried to drink orange juice right after brushing your teeth? Not pleasant is it? The toothpaste changes the environment of the taste buds which shifts the taste of the orange juice.
Your tongue and sense of smell work together picking up the molecules of what your eating, sending messages to the brain which trigger one of the five taste sensations, (sweet, bitter, sour, salty or umami). Change the environment and you change the signal.
That’s why it’s so exciting to try mixing different flavoured vapes. When paired together you can experience different aspects of the individual flavours that you never noticed before. Take a look at this month’s mixes ; who knows what your taste buds will discover !
