Steeping in the vape world is a misleading term. Normally it’s defined as putting a solid in water to soften, or to extract flavor—like steeping tea or marinating meat. When referring to steeping e-liquid, the word takes on a slightly different meaning. A more appropriate term would be “aging” your e-juice.
Steeping e-juice involves letting it age to achieve better flavor. There are many ways to do this, which we will go into more depth later. Essentially, it means letting the e-juice sit. The most important factor in this equation is time. It allows the ingredients (PG/VG, flavorings, and nicotine) to blend together.
