In brief: Brush
Brush your tongue when you brush your teeth.
Drink adequate amounts of water. Given that you say this is intermittent it seems it is likely not from a worrisome origin.

In brief: Brush your tongue
This is common and is caused by the bacteria and food debris in your mouth.
It can be removed by using a tongue scraper or. Rushing your tongue.
