A floral, peach green tea.
FLV Eisai Tea has trumped FE Green Tea as the ultimate Green Tea flavor, thanks to notes from /u/ID10-T on his Green Tea Kitkat 2019 recipe. It's vibrant and sparkly and doesn't carry a perfumey aftertaste and throat sting that FE Green Tea seemed to. I actually tried using FW Green Tea when I was just starting out, and god that stuff is vile.
FLV Peach and FLV Peach Gummy form the top note, thanks to some recipe help from /u/stuckinrussia.
CAP Hibiscus was a tremendous improvement over FW Hibiscus. I could barely use more than 2 drops before the entire thing became engulfed in it. CAP Hibiscus comes through without harm and is just awesome.
I wanted to compliment the darker, bitter floral that Hibiscus was with something bright and sweet, so I went with FA Lavender. After trying it out for the first time, I'm in love. There's so any different applications that I want to put it to, so this is just the beginning.
With the florals and the tea and the unavoidable dryness of peach, I had to juice this up as best as I could without diminishing the profile. So, I threw in some FA Fuji, as is tradition, and a little bit of INW Raspberry. To soften them up without becoming too noticeable brings in TFA Dragonfruit. It all just settles as this interesting fruit mesh below the dominant Peach.
As delicious as it all was, I felt it needed just a tinge of sweetener, so in comes FW Sweetener.
The WS-23 throws off nothing, so a significant improvement over TFA Koolada, and for my first experience with WS-23, it is amazing. Fluffy icyness throughout. 0.5% was a tad too much, so I dialed it down to 0.25% and it's perfect for me.
Feel free to adjust koolant and sweetener to taste.
My take on an Arnold Palmer updated with a smoother mix and less angst. While originally created as a concept mix, I did actually enjoy it. This is an updated version largely improved and yet different from original in many profound ways. It is a reimagining of life after being focused on problems, this here is the solution.
INW Plum/FA BC - Not very many recipes use Plum, but I loved its dryness, yet it was just a hair short of full. Plum to me is a bit thin at 1 and at 2 it's at it's limit. I wanted to give it a deeper fruity vibe and sweeten it up so I went with FA Black Cherry, and a touch of FW Sweetener.
FA Black Tea/VT Lemonade Clear/VT Sour lemon - This combo was used to create a lighter tea feel and a less sweet lemonade base to fit the dryness of the fruit. FA BT can probably be bumped up a bit if you want more tea out of it or maybe add a support with something less intense/more forgiving.
FLV Yakima Hops/Pink Guava/INW Cactus - This adds some very slight funk to the whole mix that at these low levels adds just a hint of tropical funk and wetness. It folds under the rest quite nicely to me.
FA Polar blast - I also mix this with Polar Blast at 0.4%,
Mixed Live with Fresh and Friends on 3/23 .
Wanted three scoops of vanilla ice cream topped with fresh ripe mango chunks and pineapple tidbits. Tastes more like that ice cream with fresh mango puree and crushed canned pineapple, but I'm happy with it. I'll call it a work in progress and see how it steeps out.
Swiped The Trinity Vanilla Ice Cream by Eyemakepizza; it's a deeply satisfying shake and vapeable vanilla ice cream base and I never thought to change it.
VT Shisha Mango and FLV Mango. Muah! Perfection. Ripe sweet mango right on top.
The pineapple part was a bit trickier. WF Pineapple Candy is a flavor I opened for the first time today and haven't tried as a single flavor. It smells like a kinder, gentler TFA Pineapple. But I remembered that one of the first things I ever made that I liked when I started mixing was a pineapple ice cream that was mostly TFA Pineapple and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, with a little marshmallow to soften that sharp pineapple. I was advised to use it between 2 and 3% and back it up with another pineapple that would give it some body because it's a bit thin. I first tried it at 2.5% with 0.75% FLV Pineapple, but it tasted like pineapple candy in my ice cream, with some bits of underripe banana as well. This version with the Pineapple Candy down at 2% and swapping out the FLV Pineapple for CAP Golden Pineapple worked much better. I love it so much I set off my smoke alarm sucking it down greedily.
Don't hesitate to give the Trinity Vanilla Ice Cream a try, let Eyemakepizza know what you think, and pile your flavorite fruits or other ice cream toppings on it.
Adapted directly from this wonderful recipe by orangetree.
I love the original, but cannot stomach FW Butter Pecan, for some reason unbeknownst to me. So I made a few changes, and paired things back a little.
Profile: A delicious dessert from Austria. Vanilla bean ice cream dumpling with apricot filling, rolled in grated, roasted and slightly caramelised hazelnuts.
Arctic Winter, Lemon Lime and fizzy sherbet for the spritzer part
Honeydew is my green melon balls
Papaya Punch are my orange melon balls and adds body to the mix.
Dragon fruit is my imulsifyer for the drink and at the same time separates the fruit from the beverage.
It’s facinating how complex this simple drink came out.
Let me start off by saying I've never had Smax Pony on Acid. This is what I imagine the flavor to be like when reading the profile. This is candied strawberries, raspberries, and pineapples mixed with a citrus, vanilla cream.
I'm enjoying this quite a bit fresh . . . it's tart, sweet, and creamy.
America's Horse with No Name has nothing to do with this mix other than the title. If I had to nail down a musical inspiration for this it would be Oh Sees - Smote Reverser
Since a lemon tart is a fairly straightforward profile I am presenting a normal recipe. Un- fairyfied 🤔
JK 🤣 I added sweetener so it took me to 9 Ingredients 😂
TFA and Cap Vanilla Cupcake make up my full on vanilla cake with frosting notes.
FA cookie fills in my bakery notes
FA Lemon Sicily is my primary Lemon note
SC Lemon is a strong lemon note that pushes the lemon notes in FA and helps it not fade.
FA Bergamot adds some zing/zest
WF SC Buttercream Frosting serves as a light artificial buttercream frosting flavor and at this 2% it’s also my sweetener.
I'm not one that really likes tropical fruits. To me tropical fruit flavors are over the top in your face bold, and combined with a somewhat, for the most part, unpleasant texture it ends up being just too much for this landlubber. I was somewhat amazed that I embarked on this recipe given my relative dislike of this 'genre' of food. I received a bunch of flavors from Flavorah of which one was Pink Guava. The aroma of Pink Guava is so intriguing that I was driven to find a recipe for it. I proceeded to scour the Internet looking for Guava recipes. The result of my query ended on a Mango, Guava, and Strawberry smoothie recipe that also incorporated Bananas and Coconut Milk as a base.
Off I went trying to get this together, and the results are quite amazing IMHO. While you can SNV this recipe, after a three to five days steep the banana cream really starts to fill out as a base.
FLV Mango is just a great all around Mango flavor. It may not capture all of the true Mango essence, but for a smoothie it really does the job. FLV Pink Guava is such a unique and aromatic flavor. I did not want to wander into the Grapefruit territory so I kept it low in this recipe. I can't really taste Strawberry flavorings that well, so I chose FA Juicy Strawberry and FA Red Touch at a level that is providing a tart natural Strawberry back note behind the Mango and Guava - others may find a more pronounced Strawberry flavor in the mix - sorry about my Strawberry muted olfactories.
For the base I chose FLV Sweet Coconut for the Coconut Milk along with a little FLV Cream to bolster the fullness. For the Banana I had to go with VT Banana Custard. This is such a smooth natural Banana flavor. After the steep it provides a very nice natural Banana addition to the vape. I also added just a few drops of FLV Coconut which increases the depth and creaminess to the Coconut Milk base. I know it is somewhat expensive, but it is so good that you really need to have it in your arsenal. If you don't have it you can probably leave it out, but a very rich aspect will be lacking.
When I vape this the initial exhale is that full creamy Banana with a slight hint of Coconut, and then that wonderful Mango, Guava, Strawberry mix settles on the palate that lasts for quite some time. This is one of my favorite recipes. It it is very rich, and if I over do it my palate can get worn out due to the bold flavors involved. I will also add that nicotine will alter the vape of this recipe quite a bit. I find that running between 1.5 to 2 mg/ml of freebase nicotine is best. You might be able to push the level more with Nicotine salts.
For the most part this recipe is complete, but I reserve the right to maybe tweak the percentages a bit. I have vaped this in both a single coil RDA and an RTA (the RTA leans toward the creamy banana, and the RDA toward the Mango-Guava) with excellent results, try it and let me know what you think.
[Update] I've been waffling on the overall percentages of this recipe between two 'final' versions that I have. The first version of this recipe I posted is quite strong, and is possibly too much flavorings if used in an RDA. I thought it would tame down in the steep, but it did not. The second version I have of this recipe reduces most of the flavor percentages down by 25%, and I find it a lot smoother in an RDA without sacrificing too much flavor. I reduced the FLV Mango, VT Banana Custard, and the FA Strawberries from 2% to 1.5%, the FLV Sweat Coconut from 1.5% to 1.25%, and finally the FLV Cream from 1% to 0.75%. I left the FLV Pink Guava, FLV Coconut, and Sweetener as they were.
