For many of us an authentic orange juice is something we’ve long been after.
I started this years ago (just now releasing June 2021) and tired out from oranges at one point. I picked up SSA juicy orange and knew I had to try again. I gotta say this is the closest I’ve gotten so far. Still not 100% but I figured I’d share anyways since I think I'm done chasing this whale for now.
I have to thank Dave @ID10T for the suggestions of using FLV pineapple, smoothie base and pear (amongst others but those are what I settled on). It seems like a complex recipe but anything simpler took orange in a direction I didn't want. Using these at low percentages allowed me to fill in bits and pieces without allowing any of them to take me in a direction other than an orange. Go EASY on sweetener, if you use any at all, I'd suggest stevia or FLV sweetness, very low, or you'll just get orange candies. Go ahead and add WS23 if you like but personally I found it made it too fizzy.
WF orange juice Is a great orange juice but it's kinda thin, flat and is missing those bright top notes of an orange.
SSA juicy orange Is very bright but bordering on candy so its kept low and the balance of the orange is made up with other concentrates.
FLV pineapple When I had a conversation with Dave, I mentioned I was having trouble finding something to thicken up and add some pulpy texture, this is what he suggested, stating that if it could be hidden under enough orange, it just might do the trick and it sure does! He was also correct in the fact that it has a slight orange note to it.
FLV smoothie base Is there as a thickener and emulsifier. Has complementary citrus notes that do a good job of holding this all together.
CAP Italian lemon Sicily Is there as a brightener. I tried several lemons mostly for the top note and wetting effect and this one just seemed the least intrusive. You could sub this if you like though with pretty much anything but FE lemon since it doesn't fade off very well or JF juicy lemon since I felt it turned it more to soda.
FLV sour apple Adds some tartness and juiciness.
FA bergamot Used for some pithyness, initially I tried INW orange shisha for this but it was just a bit too orange for me, this adds the pith without overloading in orange.
FA bitter wizard I recalled reading that tobacco lovers use this in a mix to eliminate any inherent sweetness and thought to give it a go in this. This seems like to wouldn't really be necessary but given the included sweetener of WF orange juice, it does help to tone down the sweetness that we can't get rid of here, taking it a tad further from an orange soda. If you want less sweet still, you could bump this up a tad.
TPA smooth This is there for the triacetin. it helps to thicken the mix and round the harsh edges. Can be subbed for FA magic mask, FA mts vape wizard or FW flavor toner/enhancer. Though not sure about %ge since I don't have those.
FLV pear Was actually a last minute, I'm curious, addition and I don't know how or why but I felt like it made it less sweet somehow. Also gives some more texture and body to back up the pineapple that I dare not push too high.
One of my many iterations included SSA multivitamin and while it was really good, it took it too far away from being authentic and more to a punch... also brought the pineapple out too much for what I was going for. Still though, 1-2% makes for an interesting deviation.
VT fizzy sherbet at 1% makes this into a really good orange soda.
To make this more of a smoothie, bump the percentage of FLV smoothie base up to 1.5-2% and you're golden.
Lots of fun things you could do here to play around with it and prevent boredom.
Let this breathe for 24 hrs, its pretty harsh off the shake. I found it best after being steeped 2-3 days to let the edges meld a little.
Please rate, review and enjoy :)
FLV Chai Spice is reeeeally fucking good. It's my favorite of the new flavors.
So Chai Spice Latte's are something that's really special to me. Kitty and my first Christmas together we tried Samurai Chai tea from teavana and we absolutely loved it. So it's become a tradition in our 15 years together to get Samurai Chai every holiday season and enjoy it together. Sadly teavana is no more.
Luckily there's FLV Chai Spice, cardamom, cinnamon, glove and ginger oh yeah this stuff is amazing. It takes the center stage here at 3% you get a really nice spice note for the TPA Sweet Tea. Sweet Tea is so good but it's really weak, I'd recommend picking up at least a 30 ML because it goes fast. Now the thing that make's Samurai what it is is the little bits of orange peel, when the Samurai steeps that orange blooms, it bitter and floral and the perfect compliment to the Chai. I used FA Bergamot here for the sour orange flavor and it's perfect. It sits right in behind the Chai giving it that nice little bit of tart Orange.
Lastly, because this is a latter we need some creamy mouth feel. FLV Cream is nice and thick with a little bit of that spice, pairs up really nicely with the Chai and 2% VT Coffee Milk froth for that foamy buttery goodness on top.
This recipe is really great and I hope you get a chance to try it out!

Tpa sweet tea & fa bergamot make a delicious tea blend.
Tpa giving us our base, fa adds a bit of earthiness.
Fa raspberry & inawera raspberry.
Fa gives a solid raspberry with a small amount of inw to add a tang.
La lemonade is my favourite lemonade flavour so there was no other choice for me.
Super sweet is optional, remove it or add more... Its up to you.
This also works really well with a small amount on Ws23.
Can be used in both mtl or dl.
A creamy vanilla lime flavor.
Balancing this recipe has been quite a challenge.
Let's jump in.
There are 3 main notes.
The Creamy Texture. INW Yes We Cheesecake and TPA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream both have a wonderful creamy body that fills out this flavor. The butter from the CAP Sugar Cookie gives the cream depth and cuts through the citrus.
The Vanilla. TPA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (use LB if you're a pepper) is a medium dark vanilla. It holds up well against the zesty citrus.
The Lime. The combination of VTA Persian Lime & FA Bergamot gives a bright natural lime flavor with lots of zest and most importantly it's not going to fade.
I sweeten this recipe with 0.5% FW Sweetener.

I have updated this recipe a few times trying to get closer. It started out as a copy of a forum post from 5 years ago and slowly I have modified the ratios and flavors until I ended up here, which to my memory is the closest version I've tried to get to the "real" cereal killa profile. If you want something different but still really nice try upping the Bergamot to 1-1.5%. All the citrus together with the bite of the bergamot is really refreshing.
Anyways, I love this version so I'm going to leave it now. Hope you enjoy.
FW razzleberry gives us the candy note.
Fa raspberry gives us the bottom note to the raspberry.
Inw raspberry gives the raspberry a touch more brightness.
Flv boysenberry just ties them all together.
Fa bergamot gives a light tea note without it over powering the raspberries.
Supersweet is optional.
You can also add ws23/koolada to turn this into an iced tea.
Allow to steep for a week for the tea to shine better.
This is a Pumpkin Ale / Lager vape, with notes of cinnamon, caramel, vanilla, and tea leaf. Very light on the punkn spice, though a touch of FW or FLV Pumpkin Spice can add some extra zing. I still want to pull a bit more of a hoppy/yeasty beer note from this, but for now, this is great. Check it out.
This is my first recipe and my try to make a delicious ice tea citrus!
For me this already tastes really nice and i hope you can enjoy it aswell :)
Add WS-23 or Kolada how you like it. I like it REALLY cold so just dosate as you need :)
Also its really low in flavour after mixing. After about 4-8 hours it already got a nice taste. I recommend let it steep for atleast 1 day.
This recipe is a steeper. It takes a good 3 to 4 weeks for FA Black Tea to steep out, and blend well into the bergamot flavor. The FLV teas are there to add just that little bit extra, you know that little bit of tea/earthy notes missing from FA Black's black tea. This to me is fairly close to drinking a cup of Bigalow's Earl Grey tea. If you prefer yours with a bit of cream, I'd suggest 0.5% of either FA's Fresh Cream or VTA's Milk Fresh. But since I can't taste creams all that well I went without it in this, even though I take my tea with a spot of cream when I drink it. You can also add sweetener if you like your tea sweet. Cooling is also an option pretty much whatever cooling flavor you like at whatever percentage preference you have.
