i changed the title and image of this recipe because some may have found it offensive.........cap cucumber and flv basil are the main notes , flv ginger snap and tpa honeysuckle back up the basil , while the cactus , lemon and sweet guava brighten up the cucumber....okay off the shake but better after a day or two......may drop the honeysuckle to 1%.....we'll see after a couple of days....ok made some adjustments,look for v2...
The idea behind this recipe started in the DIY_eJuice discord, where we were just bullshitting in the lobby one day, coming up with words that rhymed with "soda". Yoda came up, so I figured, being the "soda man" and all, why not give a "yoda soda" a shot.
So I started thinking, what are the characteristics of Yoda? First off, he's green. What "green" flavors do I have? Lime, Cactus, Apple, Pear, Honeysuckle, Hibiscus were on the shortlist (yes I know their flowers aren't green, but I considered all florals "green" for this purpose).
He's also an elder. That's where Elderflower came in to the picture.
So now I had all these flavors in mind, time to make this actually taste good.
The soda part is something I've worked with a lot, so of course I had to use my go-to fizz base: FLV Citrus Soda, CAP Lemon Lime & WS-23. As true effervescence is not (yet) possible to achieve in vape form, I feel that the sprite esque citrus notes from those flavors is as close as you can get to vaping a soda.
FLV Elderflower became the main part I wanted to build around, and I know that pear and elderflower is a great pairing. FA Pear is perfect for that as it's very sweet, something that is needed to make the recipe balanced against the funky florals and sharp citruses.
TFA Honeysuckle was on the short list, and it is sort of a "funky pear" so I think it's a perfect match here to help the pear with the sweet part, and also bring a more funky vibe to the whole recipe.
As I did a first test mix with those flavors, I knew I was on the right path. The flavors all pair beautifully with eachother and the overall feeling you get from it is very refreshing. After that it was all about finding the right balance between the sharp citruses, funky florals and sweet pear. It took quite a few attempts to get the balance between the elderflower, honeysuckle and lemon lime right, but I think it ended up great. I wouldn't nesscesarily say that it tastes like "yoda".. whatever that would be, but I think the common thread in the recipe is make makes this a yoda soda.
TLDR flavor notes;
FLV Citrus Soda & CAP Lemon Lime acts as the sprite esque soda base, WS-23 adds the cooling which further enhances the soda feeling.
FA Pear adds a very sweet and authentic pear flavor. It's very juicy which helps the mix with the freshness.
TFA Honeysuckle pairs great with the pear to give that funky sweetness, it helps sweeten the citruses and adds some complexity to the mix.
FLV Elderflower adds a floral touch, although it's a bit sweeter than other flowers, and a little musky. I think the sweet-tart flavor that blueberries usually have, this is in the same realm as that.
So I love when you are having a dicussion on flavors and spontanously a recipie pops into your head . @Freshepies and I were talking about a SA grapfruit cream and this mix developed as we were talking So I finally had a chance to mix it .
On the inhale you get a sweet honesysuckle vanilla cupcake with notes of blood organge citrus at the finish
This is a light profile that works well on an RDA tested on a reload S rda at 55 watts with an .15 alien coil
The anglefood and vanilla cupcake create the body of the for this mix - angel food cake is a fantastic flavor but needs a little support as can get lost in a mix. vanilla cupake works for that buttery darker vanilla forsting note and adds some body to the cake part of the mix.
Honeysuckle well i just love it - it adds a lovey sweetness that just acccents the fruits
Blood organge champlage is a light bright blood oragnge top note and the grapefruit cream is a creamy slightly vanilla grapefruit note that supports the citrus tart notes in this mix and sits in the middle
Tahitian vanilla is a lighter brighter vanilla to help fill out that vanilla through the mix
Add sweetner to your liking although I do not think it is needed ..I would use FLV sweetness .50 if you wan tto bring out some of the sweeter fruit notes
I love the fruit/floral combo that @RockyHarlow uses in his "Rainforest" recipe. It's hard to describe with words what it tastes like, since it's more of an abstract work of art, but I think his name "Rainforest" fits very well. The sweetness of the guava, sweet/floral honeysuckle and funky cactus makes for a very interesting combination.
As I keep throwing things at my soda base (FLV Citrus Soda, CAP Lemon Lime & WS-23), I think this combo turned out great. It preserves the unique taste of the original mix, but adds a slight fizzyness to it.
Blueberry and Orange Bubble milk tea
This is an adaptation of my Dewwy Boba recipe
In this version we are sticking to the Bubble milk base and substituting the Cherry Blossom for honeysucle to create a syrupy floral to support the blueberry.
JF blueberry berry is juicy and is the perfect contrast to the vibrant and crisp FA Orange.
I have added a hint of fa billberry just to give the blueberry some depth
I love all of them... Yet to crown a winner.
This is a part one in my recipe line of Buddha inspired vapes I'm working on.
Part two found here: http://alltheflavors.com/recipes/151144#mists_of_buddha_by_nordicflavours
Profile: Steamed rice with rose apples.
A while ago, I got thrown into a discussion at work about Buddha. Being married to a wonderful Japanese lady, who are heavily into buddhism, I started to look up what kind of food, the original Buddha's (yes there are a few of them) would actually eat.
Rice was a given and after much researchning I came up with a few recipes.
A sweet/floral one and a more sweet/savory one.
This one here are the sweet/floral one.
It's based off on the a rice dish mixed with what we currently know as a Rose Apple - or more commonly (cause there are MANY Rose Apples), a Java Apple.
While a Java Apple actually not being an apple at all, but got its name due to its colour, it's more of a melon-ish, snow pear-ish type of fruit.
It's found in wide areas in South East Asia.
A lot of credit here goes to @Shyndo and @Alfredpudding for ideas and help choosing the flavors for the Rose Apple
The Rice: is made from FA Sweet Rice and VT Rice Base. I found this combo to be pretty much what nicely steamed basmati rice tastes like.
FLV Cream: helps to bind the rice together, but only just enough to not turn it into a creamy rice pudding, as it wouldn't fit the profile. By all means, this is not really a dessert.
Rose Apple: Shyndo and Alfred both chipped in here. Alfred suggested using CAP Sweet Guava, to add some of the flavor and the flesh along with TFA pear and
FLV Rose Essence for flavor. While Shyndo chipped in (agreeing unknowingly with Alfred) on the pear and rose essence. Shyndo went further and suggested to add some honeysuckle, as honeysuckle and rose essence could be a killer combo - and I agree.
Combine the rice and the rose apple and it's a great sweet and floral vape, with a wonderful rice flavor on the exhale.
No real steep is needed for this, as FE Sweet Rice has a habit of fading, but over a day or two, it'll become more creamy and delicious. Works great as a SnV!
Hope you'll enjoy and feel free to leave a review!
Originally called Golden Wind but Golden Pear makes more sense.
A cool, LemonLavenderPear Champagne enveloped in Honeysuckle.
INW Cactus - Needed a bit of tart juiciness.
TFA Dragonfruit - To fluff and emulsify the fruits.
TFA Honeysuckle - Soothing fresh floral note that blends into each flavor's background.
FA Lavender - A perfect compliment to FE Lemon and just an overall amazing and satisfying flavor. I've been meaning to put more use to it.
FE Lemon - The king of lemons, and just enough to fuse with Lavender so that neither dominates the other.
INW Pear - IMO the King of Pears. Provides an accurate and gentle pear note that rests alongside the lemon and lavender.
FW Pink Bubbly - This one provides effervescence without additional flavor changes, like TFA Champagne or VT Fizzy Sherbet.
FW Sweetener because I like it better than CAP Super Sweet,
WS-23 - I put this into just about anything; kicks up the flavor just a tad, and brings in the chill wind.
I've been working on this one for a while. Before I even had the idea for Cabin, I wanted to capture the idea of rain in a vape. Now that it's Spring I decided to get back to work and finish this thing. I'll try to include some development notes, but it was mostly just trying things that reminded me of being outside in the rain and countless adjustments.
I started working on this before I picked up WF Starfruit and after trying it I knew it was the right place to start. It's a flavor that really captures a clean, slightly citrus dominant, water-filled fruit. I was working with this higher in the beginning from 3-3.5% but it was too aggressive to blend into the rest of the profile. Since it had to be at a lower percentage I wasn't getting the same effect, so I decided to add .25% INW Cactus to bring back some of that water content while obfuscating the Starfruit flavor a bit.
Then I started to bring in some florals that wouldn't bully the profile too much or stick out. The first addition was Hibiscus Candy. I was working with this one lower towards the beginning at around 2.5-3% but it wasn't showing up enough with the Starfruit in there. I decided to see what happened if I push it fairly high and it ended up working perfectly to add a solid amount of body and tone down the citrus in Cactus and Starfruit a bit. It still seemed lacking so I added TPA Honeysuckle at 1% and hoped for the best. I really enjoyed what it was doing to the overall idea so I started incrementally increasing it and it landed at 3%. It really helps to sell the rain concept, provides some more floral nuance, and brings an almost apple-like quality to the recipe.
Finally I wanted to add something to bring a blue hue to the recipe and make it just a little bit brighter overall. I landed on VT Bilberry Ripe because it's an awesome blueberry (kinda grape?) jam flavor and it did exactly what I was hoping for. It started down around 1% but I brought it up as much as possible without it showing up in the final product as a separate thing. Then to make it even more refreshing I tossed in .5% WS-23, but feel free to use your usual amount of cooling additive here. After making this I found that many people before me have had the idea to capture rain in a vape, so hopefully my edition is good enough to stand among them.
