A sweet blueberry ice tea for y'alls! Shake and vape certified.
This doesn't taste like an authentic blueberry tea, but rather like a sugary sweet ice tea that you buy bottled.
VT Bilberry Ripe is my favourite blueberry flavor, it's more like a blueberry jam, but even though it's so jammy it has a very unique berry sweetness that I like a lot. It's also perfect for this recipe as the bottled ice teas usually are very sweet.
JF Blueberry, another top shelf blueberry flavor. It's very similar to FA Bilberry, but better. It adds that tartness that the VT is lacking, together they give a very satisfactory blueberry flavor.
CAP Hibiscus helps sweetens up the berries even more, and 0.75% is just the right amount to give a tiny bit of floral note to sell the tea vibe even more.
FLV Lemon Tea adds a sweet black tea note, with a touch of lemon to it. We all know that a bit of lemon helps the blueberries pop, which is perfect here.
WS-23 is optional, it tastes great without it too. Use at your own preferred percentage. I like it at 0.5%, but some like it higher, some lower. If you are new to coolants I suggest you maybe go for 0.25%.
I made this recipe for my friends in the northern hemisphere that miss summer and those in the south craving for something sweet and refreshing to deal with the heat.
Do not get carried away by all the tea flavors in this mix, the combination of Sweet Tea, Lemonade and Ruby Red Grapefruit makes a great juicy base, very fresh, fizzy and with a much needed contrast between the tanginess and sweetness of the fruit that turns any regular fruit mix into a tropical delight.
Sweet Currant is the perfect additive and plays a roll similar to what Hibiscus brings to this kind of profiles. It is a deep syrupy flavor that blends perfectly with any lemon or tea and adds an extra dimension and sweetness to the mix.
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.
So my dog is named Kiki and this made me think of the black culture inspired Kiki balls that started a vogue magazine styled trend of events with dancing, kicking back and gossiping. If you are curious, check-out the trailer of the documentary called Kiki:
FLV Persimmon/FA Apricot/MB Peach Nectar= derived from the @Leilani maneuver for a good peach juice.
FLV Ginger Peach/FA Jamaica Special= Here for the spice and the darkness and also to make this a cocktail.
FLV Lemon Tea= does a good job at ice tea.
Enjoy, be queer & vape on !

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.
I've got an end of summer/beginning of fall, Minnesota head-cold... Hard to flavor test, vaping isn't even that much fun right now.
This morning I remembered an old recipe that I haven't mixed up in a while. Here it is:
This really (in my opinion) actually tastes like a lemon Halls cough drop.
Personally I bump the FA Polar Blast up to 1.25-1.5%
Simple yet good peach tea vape. SF testing JF Honey Peach I knew it only needed a nudge to make it tea, it has some herbal notes in the back ground leaning towards tea already. FLV Lemon Tea I picked up recently and hadn't really had time to SF test but I had high hopes and it worked out well. I did try laying a few flavors but its actually fairly complex as it is, JF Honey Peach has a lot going on without anything else added.
If you want to cool this off I suggest .5% FA Polar Blast or 1.5% Delosi Ice. WS-23 has an off note that gets weird here.
Over night steep recommended. You can SNV but its a little bland at first.
as you might noticed, i am creating a lot of crazy stuff lately.
I found good inspiration with food pairings and give opposite flavors a chance to play together.
here, i made a interesting recipe for you which includes tartness, fruits, limes, tea and guava
the tartness of cranberry has distinct floral note that blends well with lemon tea and bergamot.
Guava is used here not only to give a juicy mouthfeel but also adding floral notes to the cranberry.
Key Lime is added to boost the high notes, lime zest adds sharpness.
it needs to sit 3-4 days, but after that it will be a taste you might not expect.
