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.
A refreshing sweet tea with lemonade and blueberries. An excellent vape for those hot summer days
INW Shisha Bilberry -- Immediately I noticed a eucalyptus note with this one. It was off-putting at first but quite juicy and the blueberry flavor is well pronounced. Props to /u/SkiddlzNinja for suggesting a Tea recipe when reviewing this flavor on Noted
INW Eucalyptus w/ Mint -- The eucalyptus and cooling aspect of this flavor is wonderful. Very potent, realistic, and super chilly.
FLV Lemon Tea -- This is my first time trying this flavoring, but it does provide a very nice tea base (I get green tea?) with a bit of lemon accent. I don't particularly notice any dryness. Fairly weak for FLV, had it at 1.5% initially but the tea note was not coming through enough, though it is trying to overcome strong flavors like eucalyptus.
INW Shisha Lemon -- I like the way this one offers a sweet sort of lemon syrup flavor. It manages to really accent the lemon, reinforce the 'sweet tea' aspect, and is sublte enough to let the other flavors penetrate the lemons.
FA Summer Clouds -- So this is an interesting flavoring. The first thing that comes to mind to describe this one is "Mist." I wouldn't say it's "wet," but it certainly isn't dry. It has a slight floral note to it though it's difficult for me to pick out; if I had to guess I might say lavender. It does something pretty wonderful to this mix here playing off of the floral and earth notes. I get maybe a little bit of grapefruit too from it, but it's hard to say since I only SFT @ 1% and it's a fairly mild flavor.
FLV Sweetness -- Recipe wasn't quite as sweet as I wanted it to be so here you go! This one is certainly less concentrated than CAP Super Sweet, and I feel it's more of a rounded sweetness instead of just sucralose, very nice sweetener.
This recipe yields a cool, wet vape with earth, floral, and citrus notes. I wasn't sure if I was going to like this profile, but after mixing it up it is extremely satisfying. Great during the hot day and very soothing on a tired throat.
FLV Lemon Tea - This tastes a lot like an Arnold Palmer by itself. I wanted to make a refreshing summer drink with this as the base after I did a single flavor test with it.
CAP Hibiscus - This flavor was from my first DIY order and I have been trying to find a way to use the rest of it and I knew hibiscus and tea work well together in beverages so here it is in my beverage vape. It's pretty sweet and not overly floral in this recipe. I would say it's optional but I mixed this up without it and it's just not the same.
FA Forest Mix + TPA Blackberry - These two flavors together have been my go to for the lemonade recipes I have been playing around with. The lemonade really made these berries pop. The Lemon Tea is no different the lemon brings the berries forward.
CAP Super Sweet - Optional. I live in NC and sweet tea here requires like 1:1 sugar to tea ratio so I added super sweet to make it more authentic.
Add Koolada or your favorite cooling agent if you want it cold. Hope you enjoy it!
