The tangerine is a orange-colored citrus fruit that is a hybrid of mandarin oranges. The name was first coined due to its origin in Tangier, Morocco, and is still used today. The overall taste is considered less sour, with sweeter and stronger notes than that of an orange. While there is a citrus edge it is compensated for by the sweet notes, creating a balanced flavour.
It is because of this balance that Tangerine is such a popular flavour in eliquid and can be found in many combination blends with the likes of strawberry or mango; while some liquids include menthol which adds a sharper, sweeter kick to the exhale. That being said, it isn't uncommon to see it on its own, as its bold flavour provides you with a balance of strong, sweet notes. You’ll find variations in both high VG and high PG e liquid blends to suit a range of devices. When used for sub ohm vaping at higher wattages it takes on a glazed taste, intensifying the notes of sugar and citrus, lower wattages will emphasise the juicy notes.
