It happens when my tobacco is overly dry, or overly smoked. The latter is simply based on overexposure and becoming desensitized. Regularly rotating blends certainly helps...

I frequently suffer from such things as I am super sensitive to, apparently, a vast array of allergens and pollens.

I try to only take OTC allergy meds when I have to...the rest of the time, I find that keeping dust/ash down helps, drinking lots of water (placebo? maybe. but really seems to help with my nose), hot showers, and keepin' the pipes clean

I hate when this happens though, can be a real bummer when you were ready for a pipe-ful day and realize yer kinda on the bench.

Take some snuff. Tap a pile onto the desk. Divide it equally using a razor blade and turn into two long lines of about six inches in length. Take a crisp, clean, high denominational banknote from your country of residence and form a straw. Inhale the lines of snuff and lick the residue from the table. Wait twenty minutes to see if your sense of taste has returned! rotf

Interesting topic. I have often wondered about different body pH levels and the perception of taste\ flavors.
There is probably plenty of info on it but I am too lazy to search for it.. besides I like things to ponder sometimes.

Have You Ever Had One Of Those Pipe Smoking Days Where... you just can't catch the flavor from your tobacco?

I used to attribute this to sinuses; and often on those days, after a hot, steamy shower - and clearing my sinuses - the effect would be alleviated. However, today isn't that day, as nothing seems to be working.

Has this ever happened to you? What's your go-to remedy; if any? - Sherm Natman
Yes, many times last 6 months. Negative for Covid (me).
Nicotine whap more than normal too.

This happened when I smoked throughout the day. I only smoke a couple pipes per week now, and it doesn't happen at all.

I'm sure some Ardbeg would help a bit. Even if it doesn't, you still win.

This has been the case for me, specifically today, but more or less over the past week or so. I seem to not get the flavors I had been getting previously for some reason 🤔

Not a bad day, but every time I try H&H Black house it ends in a hot flavorless smoke that bites. I don't have trouble with anything else though.

It happens from time to time. If I'm puffing way to much and too often, more than three bowls a day, seems my taste buds have gone to hell.......
I give it a rest and things are back to normal.
