Has anyone else come to realize that taste testing your DIY mixes does not need to be at the end of the day? I want to be productive and have something to do after I get home from the day, but I have realized it is not the time to taste test! Mixing up new batches is fine. Taste testing not so much. If vaper tongue is a real thing, I have it late at night when I get home. What DIY mix tastes like crap at midnight, tastes totally vapable at 11am the next day! I’ve learned to not trash a mix at midnight.
A little trick I learned in culinary school was to eat a saltine Cracker before tasting. It cleanses the palate and allows you to taste the full flavor of whatever your testing. I use this same method in testing my juices.
I eat sixteen saltine crackers then I lick my fingers
Or smell freshly ground coffee!
Peanut butter works for me???
