The TEA: VT Jasmine Green Tea makes up the bulk of our tea base. It's got brilliant green notes and subtle Jasmine that are excellent on their own, but since they'll be mixed with some strong competitors I've decided to bulk that base up with a little FA Black Tea to boost the tannic/tea base and some additional Jasmine from FA to create a strong over all tea base. These 3 together in this combination make an excellent tea base with room for fruit or any other additives.
The Melon: FLV Wild Melon is a brilliant melon mix that never dissapoints. The downside to it is that when you take it up to 1-2% it starts to overpower more delicate flavors like our jasmine. So I've left it down at .5% and boosted the sour/melon notes with FLV Sour Apple. You could likely use FA Fuji here in it's place if you don't have FLV Sour Apple, but I really like the way FLV Sour Apple interacts with FLV Wild Melon. Over all you get a sweet, mixed melon overtone to the tea base.
Sweetener: Sucralose works here if you don't keep Erythritol handy, but the earthy sweetness of Erythritol works incredibly well with tea. It's a fair bit weaker than traditional sucralose, so I've settled at 2% here to keep things nice and sweet.
Sweet tea with peach simple syrup.
yellow peach is a nice soft peach flavor. Great when combined with white peach for its sharper notes at lower percentages.
Apricot just to round off the stonefruit.
Since it is a simple syrup, the peaches are cooked down with sugar which is where the liquid amber along with super sweet to make it sweet and syrupy.
Fa black tea is in the background giving this a nice finish
One on one makes the cherry blossom tea which is a nice flavor imo. It's a light, soft and sweet with a hint of cherries in the aroma. It has a slight black tea bitterness which I like in a tea. Inewera cherries just make up the body with a sweet cherry flavor without the medicinal off note. I like a bit of cream and sugar with my tea hence the rest of the ingredients. I love Cherry's and this is a nice easy tea recipe with a fantastic aroma. Regards all. (Hangsen vanilla is a better vanilla in this recipe imo. Increased the cherries to 2.5 and added inawera marzipan at .5 to fill in the base with an extra cherry note) Regards all
Strawberry-Apple Iced Tea. Light & refreshing. Best at 65% VG. Good fresh, but tea becomes stronger after 1-3 days(I prefer it at 3 days).
Flavor selections are kinda self-explanatory! Enjoy!!!

Made this for a redditor who wanted something based on this:
I think I hit the nail right on the head. If you want something fruity, calming and lightly floral then look no further.
(can make without the black tea, its good either way)
Description by /u/theamdman on reddit:
"This juice is something different to try, it's nothing like the testosterone filled bottles that caress TFV12 tanks all over the country, but rather something to taste and enjoy a juice that is just pleasant, and not something savory to leave a bland yet powerful taste, instead a flavor that becomes more and more enjoyable, as if it's a fine wine that gets better as your taste buds acquire the caressing of a gentle, tropical hibiscus used to complement an orange stage with hints of black tea putting vocals in the instrumental. It itches an itch that you never even noticed that you had and gives your self a vape that really makes you taste and smell every bit of this nebulous nebula."
Another thing I've noticed is that this juice also seems to be better at a lower power. It's really soft.
I was raised in southern Louisiana, primarily by my mother. All year long, we would have a stock of approximately 1 gallon of sweet, SWEET, southern iced tea. As my brother and I got older, we became interested in learning how to make "the best tea in the world". We were shocked to find that my mother put 2 cups of sugar/gallon of boiling water.
Fast forward to being an adult, living in Northeast Ohio, I find myself craving sweet tea as soon as winter breaks and I trade in my winter coat for a light jacket. My brother, living in TX now, has adapted my mom's old recipe, cutting the sugar by 2/3. This Recipe is inspired by my brother's adaptation: Louisiana Sweet Tea
CAP Juicy Lemon/FA Lime Tahity: These two flavors, at this percentage give you a lovely lemon-citrus blend. It's a light counter-balance to the earthy depth of the teas.
CAP Super Sweet/TPA Marshmallow: The Super sweet gives you that sugary sweetness that comes with sweet tea. The TPA Marshmallow gives a little more sweetness, plus a tiny bit of vanilla/marshmallow. Honestly, at 0.25, the marshmallow can likely be dropped as it's just a mild flavor enhancer.
FA Black Tea and Green Tea. These two teas combined give you the earthiness of the black tea with the floral high notes of the green tea. I love these two flavors combined.
Inspired by the description for Londinium by Roman Haze. I've never tasted the original but this blend is truly delightful. An earl grey tea true to it's name, doused with a lush vanilla cream. I wanted to make a simple recipe that delivers flavor that will keep you coming back
Earl Grey Tea Base:
FA black tea/FA bergamot/JF lemon juicy
FA black tea can be very dry and unpleasant at higher % but here it sits perfectly. I found that 1.5% was not enough for the tea to shine through, so I landed at 1.75% and it is juuust right.
FA bergamot is for the bergamot oil on our tea leaves, 1.1% is right where I want it. We want to avoid the bergamot becoming overpowering or spicy but we also do not want to lose it in the mix. JF lemon juicy is here to provide juiciness for the whole recipe while adding a lil something to the bergamot.
Simple Vanilla Cream Base:
INW shisha vanilla/TPA marshmallow
I wanted to make this more of a thick vanilla latte feel rather than vanilla and milk. INW Vanilla Shisha was the first thing that came to mind when I was thinking of doing a vanilla earl grey tea. It's got a deep, lightly earthy vanilla flavor that compliments tea and bergamot so well. The first version used 1.5% shisha and it was too much vanilla imo. I also tried using Holy Vanilla but that version was not as satisfying.
Instead of getting complex with the cream base I decided to keep it simple and attack the main problem child here: FA bergamot can be rough around the edges so I landed on TFA marshmallow to complete the cream. This is such a useful ingredient and here it was the last touch to the recipe, it brings the citrus down into the body of the mix and allows for the black tea to shine through on the exhale. It's also adding density to the delightful shisha vanilla. Marshmallow also adds a ton of sweetness which makes this mix all the more comforting. (cannot sub any other marshmallow, this one does too many things here)
These two ingredients provide a solid cream base and a perfect pairing for Earl Grey Tea.
There you have it. 5 ingredients, right under 5% on flavoring. This is a recipe for tea lovers, cream addicts and vanilla heads alike. I think this is something that anyone can enjoy and I hope that you do.
*Before anyone asks, the only sub I can see working is for another lemon flavor, CAP juicy lemon comes to mind. There is absolutely no other vanilla that will taste like this one, so that's out. I think all these ingredients are vital but I understand that no one has all the flavors. I hope you do have these because it's fuckin tasty.
Edit lowered the % on cream base
