i keep 3 tins open most of the time. actually have 10 jars open, but i noticed i don't smoke most of them. so it's one va or va/per and two english/balkan. i haven't smoked current va/per in few weeks. few days ago, loaded up one of my pipes with va/per and didn't get any taste out of it. next day it was better, and 3rd day, i finally got the taste of that va/per. the taste was back, but some how muted. i remember when i started current english/balkan blends having the same issue. is it normal for my taste buds to take couple/few days to reset?

Yes, that’s normal. Rotating types of blends will probably help. VA one day, Balkan the next...

Are you smoking both English and vaper out of the same pipes? If so you might want to dedicate your pipes so you have no ghosting to deal with.

I rotate blends pretty frequently, with a balken one day, a vaper the next and a mild va/bur/cavindish the next. If I find I cant get the flavor I want from either one, I take a day or two break. I would suggest taking a few days off pipe smoking all together, it resets the palate and let's all those subtle flavors come back to you.
