This is the best tea recipe I have made or vaped so far, and while I have been trying to make good tea recipes for years, it is only possible thanks to TPA Sweet Tea and the incredible line of teas from Flavorah.
TPA Sweet Tea: It is not a perfect black tea but it is (FMPOV) the best we have and since it is sweet, icy and there is a subtle lemon note in the background, it is ideal for this application
CAP Hibiscus: I am a big fan of this flavor and its versatility. Here it brings the main note, with a distinct tropical floral note, sweet and not as aggressive as FLV Hibiscus. It also provides a full mouthfeel that imitates the syrup sweetener they use in Starbucks.
FLV Lemon Tea: For me this is not black tea with lemon, but more like lemons boiled with tea. The lemon note is bright and upfront and not too sweet or candied. The tea note is almost infused in the lemon flavor, making it easy to blend in this mix.
Imagine the feeling you have on a hot summer day. Maybe chilling with some friends at home in your garden, maybe on the beach. You're thirsty so you grab one of these bottles as shown in the thumbnail, and you feel as if you're in heaven. This is the feeling this recipe tries to capture.
My goal was to recreate the taste of one of these as accurately as possible. After tweaking V1 some more, I think I even got a bit closer to it.
TPA - Sweet Tea: I went with this, because when I originally smelled it, it smelled just like this particular tea I was trying to recreate. I used it at 6% because it builds our Tea Base and is a fairly weak flavor.
FA - Black Tea: This tea provides the bitterness you can taste in this drink. Since it's a very intense flavor, I used it at 0.5% to get that bitter sidenote, but kept it low so it won't be too overpowering.
CAP - Juicy Lemon: Imagine making a tea and not adding some citrus to it. Who on earth would do such thing? That's why we have 2% of this juicy lemon in there, to get a nice citrus touch, but as well, keep it on the ground.
CAP - Super Sweet: Some people like it sweet, some don't. I do, and since the drink itself is very sweet, I decided to go with an astounding 0.25 Super Sweet.
Last but not least, to top everything off, TPA - Juicy Peach: To be honest, this is where I was really unsure. I think though, Juicy Peach provides a really nice top note. On it's own, it smells like a very rich, natural Peach. That's why I decided to throw some
FA - White Peach in there as well. It smells much less intense, but really candy-like. It reminds me of the taste of those Haribo Peaches, if anyone knows those.
Also, I used some WS-23 to really give it an "iced" feeling. I used it at 0.5 since I haven't used it often, but you can definitely use more of it :)
Sweet black tea and coconut cream..
While not the most ambitious profile to go tackle, this was one of my first public recipes posted and pulled from ATF. I felt the need to go back to it just to see how I would approach it now and I have to say with the help of newer flavors.
As much as I am not a fan of FLV Sweet Coconut, I do really love FA Coconut and how well they both blend into creams. When I think of recipes with creamy coconut in them I think of Leche de Coco by hashslingingslashur, so I went with them at the same ratio but turned down a bit. Although weak, TFA Sweet Tea is still my favorite for straight up black tea. I have been messing around with this combination with VT Sugar Cane for a few mixes and haven't been disappointed yet. VT Sugar Cane makes it a little darker, sweeter and even a little more earthy. After testing a lot of cream layers I decided to go with CAP NY Cheesecake and FA Bavarian Cream. Working with Folkart and Alfred on multiple recipes, there is no denying those fuckers are straight up, unapologetically crema bavarese crazy, and for good reason. I used NY Cheesecake to fill out some of the missing texture and weigh it down a little more, but I didn't expect it to add as much to the coconut layer like it does. I wish I had more to say about why that flavor works in here but somehow it does.
.25% CAP SS if needed... probably needed.
A very addictive sweet tea lemonade with a touch of peach.
Sweet tea TPA and Black tea FLV make up the tea base. Its actually a great flavor combo for anyone making teas. Got the idea from ID10T off Noted if i remember right. This combo gives good body to the vape, not being to thin.
Lemonade LA and Lemonade FW are my favorite lemonade combo right now. Lemonade LA is the power house that brings a tart/sour lemonade and Lemonade FW brings in more flavor closer to the lemonade I like.
Wanted a authentic peach so I went with Peach INW and Peach FLV, together they create a sweet peach syrup like a store bought peach tea.
Sweeten and add your cooling agent of choice, but I like this were i placed everything

This is a delightful mixed berry tea with some lemon. TFA Sweet tea is a very good tea flavor but very weak so I needed the high % to make it show. I used a combo of bumbleberry by wf and the new strawberry gummy candy for the main note. the bit of sticky texture from the strawberry gummy candy is great to give this tea a thicker, more syrupy feeling. flv lemon tea backs up the sweet tea and brings in the bit of lemon to make the berries pop.
An Arnold Palmer spiked with Bourbon.
This is not really my recipe. It was supposed to be a collaboration with me, @AlfredPudding, and Isuamadog. But you know how there’s often that one guy on a group project who does all the work? Yeah, that was not me. This is really AlfredPudding’s recipe. If he tries to protest and declare otherwise, don’t listen to him. He’s only being overly humble and modest.
FLV Lemon Tea is the heart of this thing, the star of the show. “What? But it’s only at 1% and TFA Sweet Tea is at a whopping 14%?!”
Yes. Usually using one flavor to bend another involves adding a small amount of something to pull another flavor in one direction or another or turn it into something it isn’t. But in this case, the relatively strong Lemon Tea is getting pulled slightly by the stupidly weak TFA Sweet Tea. Things taste different when they’re heated and Lemon Tea tastes like hot tea with lemon and no sugar. TFA makes it more of a half-sweet tea with lemon, that tastes more like iced tea. TFA Sweet Tea wouldn’t work for this by itself because it doesn’t have the backbone to stand up to these other flavors, but Lemon Tea does, it just needed to get bent. We don’t just want tea with a lemon wedge, though, we want lemonade. INW Shisha Lemon and CAP Super Sweet does that. The Shisha Lemon sits on the fence between candy and natural lemon juice. Pairing it with some sucralose and preservative magic transforms it into a solid lemonade flavor. The result tastes like lemonade made from a powder mix, but with few lemon slices added for that fresher flavor thanks to Lemon Tea’s more natural lemon flavor.
The Bourbon Trifecta: The triple bourbon flavors were used because they each have their own strengths. VT Bourbon gives us that boozy top note that lets you know right away this is a cocktail. Think about it; if you raise a Back Nine, Dirty Palmer, or whatever you want to call it, to your face, the first thing you’re going to notice is that there’s bourbon in there, along with the lemon if real lemons were involved at all. VT does that. But this drink is shaken or stirred and the Bourbon isn’t just sitting on top. There’s a deeper, sweeter flavor mingled with the lemonade, one where you can almost taste the corn used to make the sour mash that eventually became Bourbon. That’s where the TFA Kentucky Bourbon comes in. Finally, there’s the flavor of the charred oak barrel in which the Bourbon was aged mingled with the more astringent, earthy aspects of tea. Only FLV Bourbon is capable of that delivering that. The Bourbon Trifecta.
FA Polar Blast was a final addition meant to make this refreshment extra refreshing and make the “cold things should be cold” crowd happy. It was chosen over WS-23 because it’s a more of a back-end cooling that doesn’t get weird with the VT Bourbon’s warm booze top note the way WS-23 does. It still had to be used relatively lightly to also avoid interfering too much with the tea at the end, but is present enough to be reminiscent of an ice cube sliding over and touching your lip just before you lower the glass after taking a drink.
My goal is to create something like SVRF’s satisfying.
I’m going to do my best to describe this the way I was dissecting it in my head.
Tea Base - TFA sweet tea and FE green tea. I like the sweet tea as the main flavor with a small amount of green tea to give it some more body. Koolada is added because , this is after all a cold beverage. I want to keep it as authentic as possible in that realm.
“Tea Syrup” - INW and FLV Raspberry with FA White Peach. I’ve used either of these raspberry’s separately in the past, I wanted something that tasted both real and candy-like. I put in a small amount of FA white peach to give the raspberry something to pop off of. I also like the harshness of white peach and feel like it gives me a nice bit of TH.
Finally, I’m using stevia in this mix for now. I haven’t tried it but will often reach for CAP super sweet when I need sweetener.
