I think it goes: "puff on a cigar, smoke a cigarette, sip a pipe".Smoke a Cigar, Smoke a Cigarette, Sip a Pipe!
Granted there are some blends you can huff and puff on, these you just have to learn by trial, so if you are taking big puffs, go slower and sip.
no tongue bite sucks. Basically you won't really taste anything for a few days and your tongue will feel weird for a few days. The only good thing about it is pain is a good teacher. If a blend keeps giving you tongue bite you know it's not for you if a certain pipe does you learn not to use that pipe. It will happen someday. You'll be smoking a pipe and something will distract you maybe a lady who is too pretty to be talking to you will make you wonder what the heck is going on or you'll see someone fall out of tree and be more concerned with their safety or you'll be reading a how to and trying to figure out what they're telling you to do or someone on a forum will be over explaining something and boom tongue bite. Then you'll be glad it took so long.Am I missing out? I have never experienced tongue bite. (Knock on wood)
What is the specific tabak you are smoking which is torturing your tongue?So I always have a smoke on my way into work which is a 40 min drive. Problems I got is wicked tongue bite. I've tried tamping more. Tamping less, drying tobacco.
Still get it. Anyone got any advice?
