So, I've been finding that the alkalinity on the tongue is eased considerably by tea; green tea specifically. Anything carbonated makes my tongue feel like I've got a zillion tiny needles poking it.

My question is:

What beverages do you drink while smoking to either enhance the experience or relieve the slightly "burny" but not quite "bitey" feeling?

I have been enjoying India Pale Ales along with my pipe.

There was I brother sharing here a few days ago about Red Wine helping with tongue bite...I don't know if it works but I'm willing to try!

An interesting concept. One would think the tannins would exacerbate the issue, but perhaps not. Certainly worth a try.

That'd be me boys Laughing I forgot where I read it exactly but I decided to give it a whirl when I just started pipe smoking last year. So I got myself a small glass and sipped it slowly, if you let it stay in your mouth on your tongue for a few seconds it works even better. All I can say is its magic! My go-to solution in the rare chance I get tongue bite.

After all, what's the worst that could happen? You enjoy a nice glass of wine. OH THE TORTURE!! Hahah Laughing

See, that's awesome. One of the many reasons BoB is invaluable. It would have taken me years and a bit of chance to learn about the red wine cure.

Flavor-wise, I like whiskey. Carbonated beverages are a no-go, and I haven't found beer to be a good compliment to a pipe, though I may need to do more research.

That seems to be my routine as well PP. Big tea guy, so I do that through most of the day, until it's too late for caffeine, then switch over to either decaf or whiskey/rum.

Though, with this red wine aspect, that may change as well. We will see.

I've found the acid in a diet pepsi neutralizes any tongue bite I've encountered,,,

Now you're talking. That works for me with most tobaccos. However, with Ten Russians black coffee seems to work the best.
In the evenings I'm not averse to a little brandy with a bowl of va.

Scotch or coffee with burley, bourbon with Virginias, red wine with latakia, port with cigars.

I seldom, if ever get tongue bite. I don't drink these to prevent it, these are just my tastes.

Biotene is a wonder! Also great for annoying minor mouth injuries (like the dreaded "too-hot pizza tongue burn.")

The irony is that Biotene is full of Propylene Glycol, a compound widely blamed for unpleasant smoking experiences. Of course, it isn't being combusted by an ember when youre rinsing with it.

Because of all the meds I'm on, I can't drink alcohol so I can't help you there. But I can tell you that V-8 works very well. Just don't drink the spicy one, that makes it worse.
