    No Taste Buds, All My Tobaccos Taste like Crap And Sour

    My taste buds went away a few days ago. Now all my tobaccos taste terrible. Sour and chemical like. I'm not sick with a cold or anything like that. Frustrating as hell. Even my Presby in a clean pipe tastes bad. The weather is hot and humid, but I don't smoke in front of a fan, or directly in a breeze. I even make sure my Tobaccos are dried enough. Could it just be me, or is it something I'm missing here. Cold water helps a bit, but does not last long. Been smoking about 3 years and never had this happen before. This ever happened to you guys, and if so, what did you do or not do to fix it? Thanks guys

    I donít know what causes it but it happens to me every so often. The good news is it usually doesnít last very long for me, like maybe a day or two. The bad news is those days feel like months.

    No not salty, just sour like eating a bit of tobacco. Worse than chewing baccy, which I tried years ago

    I'm sure a chap in your position could conjure up a magic potion.

    Won't last long, try some mouthwash.

    I don't enjoy the pipe when the weather is too hot.

    You mean the magic spirits of beer and wine? With enough wine, it wouldn't matter what it tasted like.

    yes, I am seeing now that the hot weather can effect somewhat the tobacco taste. Wasn't sure though before this thread post, but now I am getting the feeling that anytime in the future this happens again, it may be the hot weather. Thanks guys.

    FWIW, I get "palate fatigue" if I smoke too many bowls of one flavor bomb or another. I can reset things with a few bowls of Carter Hall or something similar.

    I developed a case of Bell's Palsy over the Memorial Day weekend this year. Left side of the face was affected. This also affects the taste buds on the left side, mostly those along the side of the tongue. I also get a metallic sort of taste in that area too. Reading about it says that this is normal, and will eventually clear up as the nerves heal/grow back. While I don't have a trained palette yet, I can tell a difference in the 'flavor' of the tobacco when I smoke...And also, the heat outside does seem to affect the way it tastes as well. I guess Phoenix will do that to you...
    Take care and check six!
