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.
I started out with an idea of an Alien franchise inspired mix. Originally I thought Nostromo would be a fitting name, but was left not really feeling the inspiration. Then Xenomorph came into play. For those not familiar, those are the adult form of the creatures in the films.
This is a fizzy, lime soda with just that touch of Ginger Ale to give it a push.
It was easy where I had to go with this then. Xenomorphs have green, acidic blood. So Lime was a given. And I knew I wanted it to be an in your face, intense recipe.
I originally chose VT Shisha Lime and FA Aurora as my base, but it seemed that Aurora was smoothing out the lime too much and that is not what I wanted. With a second opinion from u/FomentLife, I decided to scrap Aurora and add FA Lime Tahity Distilled to get some wonderful zest going in the mix.
u/Staybert found success with FLV Citrus Soda in his Citrasberry recipe, and I knew right away it belonged here.
u/OdieDoodah gave me the suggestion of TFA Ginger Ale to add an extra level to the "blood".
CAP Hibiscus brings some syrupy goodness into the fold.
This came together in an AHA! moment and I'm quite pleased with the results.

"Zoe is the orange monster from Sesame Street, Cookie Monster absolutely loves his cookies, and one of these things is definitely not like the others. This is a bright, citrus jam covered cookie made for the first ever Discord Mixing competition. It utilizes the jammy texture provided by CAP Hibiscus while completely obscuring the flavor. CAP Sugar Cookie is filled out with FA Pistachio and TPA Cheesecake (Graham Crust) to provide an excellent rich cookie base. We hope you enjoy it."

This is my first original recipe and is still very much a work in progress! I live in Texas and when it gets hot, it gets HOT! One of the best ways I've found to cool off in the blistering summer months is an ice cold glass of hibiscus iced tea made by someone who really knows how to make it. It has a sour-sweet citrusy flavor that is incredibly refreshing.
Something is still missing, so as always, please let me know if you have any suggestions as to how this can be improved or added/subtracted upon.
In honor of Game of Thrones' final season, I've concocted this bloody mess of redness.
As you can see, it's all red fruits plus a red flower.
Cranberry and Raspberry provide red tart,
Dragonfruit provides its staple fruit amplification,
Fuji provides that red juiciness,
Pomegranate and Sweet Strawberry provide their red sweetness,
And Hibiscus lends it's silky, red floral aspect.
All in all it's a beautifully full, silky, tangy, sweet rush of treachery

A cold, fresh, blueberry-kiwi fizzy cocktail.
FW Blueberry - like sweet, squeezed candy blueberries. Just the kind I want. But how to enliven the blue-ness? The berry-ness? Thanks to some mad experiment 3 years ago by [deleted], the key is
CAP Hibiscus. Really? Well, it works. Smell them side by side and it all makes sense. That's what it needed. Tested the mix at 0.5% (totally fine), 0.75% (excellent), and 1% (too noticeable). What a concept.
FW Kiwi - The wet, dark green pulp of the fruit. It's never complete without some compliments, though. It's missing that tart kick, so of course we'll add
INW Cactus and TFA Dragonfruit, to fluff and emulse and juicify and tart it all.
When it comes to fizziness, my first soda vape was /u/ID10-T
's 1-2-3 Cranberry Sprite, which is still a rotating ADV favorite of mine. But I'd also experimented a lot with FW Pink Bubbly, which worked really well with fruits. So why not half and half? 1% of VT Fizzy Sherbet and 1% FW Pink Bubbly works immensely well.
FW Sweetener is my go-to for sweetener due to it's chemical simplicity, but if you're a CAP Super Sweet fan, sub it for 0.25%.
WS-23 for the coolness of the slush.
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.
