Hey guys, I'm new here. First post. Been reading around for some time though. So here's my problem which I hope someone can help with or at least shed some light on what is causing this. Also if someone has any idea, new things to try etc... I'll take 'em all. I'm ready to try new things because I don't want to go back to cigarettes! So here it is... I can't taste shit! Whatever Ejuice I tried, they all either taste bad right off the bat or start tasting bad after a day or 2 of usage. Allow me to try and explain this better. I buy a new juice. Whatever the flavor. Chocolate, Peaches, Watermelon, Berries etc... Different brands also. I start vaping on it. Some I will be turned off right off the bat like I said. Sometimes I try one, taste all right or just fine at first. Then, by the end of the day (sometimes 2-3 days, the aftertaste it leaves in my mouth becomes so bad, almost metallic like, that I actually start gagging after a couple puffs on some flavors. That aftertaste is very hard to describe. For exemple, right now I'm vaping on a peach flavored Ejuice. 75PG/25VG. The Peach taste is so muted, I'd say like I taste 20% peaches and 80% that annoying aftertaste. It's unbearable and just plain frustrating. So far, the only Ejuices I haven't had that particular problem with are mint based ones and the reason why is pretty obvious. The mint taste is so overwhelming that it actually mutes that aftertaste I get. Let me give you a bit of a background on me, it might help you guide me a little better. I'm 29yrs old. I'm Canadian so most Ejuices I buy are Canadian made. I have been smoking cigarettes for the past 14 years. Quit a few times here and there. Twice for a year or so. Seeing that I started smoking below legal age, I obviously wasn't a ''real'' smoker until I reached 18 (which is the legal age in my province). Also something that might help you situate me better with my problem, I have good oral hygiene. IE; my teeth are perfect. Not the whitest around because of smoking and coffee but they are in perfect condition. I ''know'' some people that have disgusting oral hygiene (brown, broken, rotten teeth) and are vaping with no problem like mine. So that oral hygiene cause is not my problem. Now, my vaping background. About a year ago, I decided to try vaping for the first time of my life. I went to a vape shop, grabbed an Atlantis tank, an Eleaf iStick 50W and some of their best selling Ejuice. All was good for a couple weeks. I really enjoyed it, so much that I completely quit smoking. Then, a month or 2 in, the aftertaste problem started. It became so bad to a point that I just started buying cigarettes again. When that problem started last year, I asked the vape shop for their opinion. They had me try different things. Change the coil, clean the tank with alcohol, change the Ejuice and such. Nothing worked. I gave up. Now onto the present. 2 weeks ago, I decided to give vaping a new try. I had sold my previous equipment so I went to a new vape shop and bought myself a Sigeili 80W box mod and an Aspire Cleito tank. Grabbed a bottle of their best selling Ejuice which is Canadian made, called Vape Candy - Berry Explosion, 3mg nicotine, 30PG/70VG. Loved it. First 2 days were absolutely perfect. Taste was abondant etc.. Vaped on the .2omh coil at 60-65W. Then, that aftertaste came back... Went back to the shop, explained to them the situation, they came up with the solution to switch to another flavor. Spoke about vape tongue and such. Grabbed a homemade watermelon flavored Ejuice. 3mg nicotine and no further description on the bottle. Taste was great for a couple of days then same problem. Went back, grabbed a mint type juice. Brand name Fogged Out Vapes - Winter's Passion. Canadian and local made. 3mg nicotine. 75/25 (most likely 75PG/25VG). Taste is absolutely on point. They describe the taste as ''A sweet mixture of fruits and menthol that leaves an icy finish on your palette.''. Basically, mint with a berry finish. And I could ACTUALLY taste the berries on my lips after every puff. Now onto now. I have been vaping this for the past 1-2 week(s). Tried 3-4 different Ejuices in-between, including a tobacco flavored one, all disgusting either right off the bat or would leave me with that horrid aftertaste. Back to Winter's passion mint Ejuice it was. Yesterday, I went ahead and bought myself some new gear, thinking a new tank/box mod would somehow help and also because why not... Bought a SMOK Alien 220W box mod and a TFV8 RBA edition atomizer. Also grabbed a bottle of peach flavored Ejuice. SAME DEAL. I primed the TFV8 Q4 coil with it and started vaping away. SAME DEAL. Cleaned the tank, put the TFV8 T8 coil in, primed with the minty Winter's Passion one and all is great OTHER THAN THE CRAZY spitback issue I get with this coil.... So onto what I have tried so far to get a decent and LASTING taste out of Ejuices. This is all according to what I have read online and on the recommendation of the vape shop. - Quit smoking cigarettes completely. Apparently, sometimes smoking cigarettes and vaping both during the day can cause my taste buds to shutdown. Quit smoking cigarettes completely over a week ago. Not helping. - Scrapping my tongue. Bought a tongue scrapper. Used it everyday, twice a day after brushing my teeth. My tongue has never been so pink and healthy looking. Not helping. - Changing the coil more often. Before I bought the TFV8 yesterday, I have been using the Aspire Cleito like I mentioned above. Been using the .2omh coil (55-70W) with it. Changed coils every 4-5 days. Same deal... - Palette cleanse. Use mint based Ejuice for a day or 2 in-between each new flavor to try and cleanse my taste buds/palette. At first it seemed to have somehow worked but not anymore. - Smell fresh coffee beans before puffing on a new flavor. Nope. I'm desperate and don't know what to do anymore. I'm turning to you guys, veterans of vaping, and I'm ready to try whatever you guys think would help. Setting up an RBA? 100%VG? 100%PG? Complexe Ejuice flavors? I DON'T want to go back to cigarettes again! Thanks for having taken time to read my HUGE post and I appreciate any help!
