Did you know different drip tips can affect the flavor of your e-liquid?
Does size really matter? Well, in regard to e juice flavors... yes it does. The drip tip has a lot to do with the flavor notes because of what area of your tongue the vapor is reaching.
So first off, What Are Drip Tips?
Drip tips are the pieces that are inserted into the tank or RDA that the vaper inhales through.
Why Do Vaper’s Use Drip Tips?
Drip tips have always been a fun accessory created to customize vaping devices. The variety of customization is really unlimited. Some vapers love the wide open air-flow of a wide bore, while others prefer the tighter airflow of a ming style drip tip. For myself I prefer my vape close to the middle of these two categories.
How Do Drip Tips Affect Flavor? So how does the width of the drip tip change the flavor? Well, it has a lot to do with where our taste buds are located. Do you remember when we were young doing those experiments in science class and learning where different flavors became more prominent on our tongue? That's exactly what this is!
Tighter Draw | Sweet flavors
When using a drip tip that has a tighter draw it is much more likely that you will notice predominantly sweeter notes. This is because when you inhale using the tighter drip tip it actually directionalized the vapor to the center of the tongue. Which is where we receive the sweet flavors.
Middle | Best of Both | Fruity Sweet Flavors
If you are one of those vapers who is a flavor enthusiast and really desires to hit each of the flavor notes having a drip tip which is right in the middle is probably what you would prefer. When vaping those fruity sweet flavors the air flow is very important to hitting all of the flavor notes. For example, if you are vaping a fruity yogurt flavor it will be important to have a drip tip that hits every flavor note.
Wide Bore | Sour Flavors
Lot’s of air flow means the vapor reaches all areas of your tongue. Sour flavors are amplified when using wider than normal drip tips because it allows the vapor to reach the outer edges of our tongue that taste sour notes.
