Rainforest is a sopping wet amalgamation of Juicy Guava, Honeysuckle, and Cactus. I get an absolutely saturated mouthfeel from this blend and I love it when i need a change of pace for a few days. It has seen a few different iterations with the three main ingredients at varying levels of dominance, but I felt this was the most well rounded and accessible. You can turn the Guava and Cactus down for a more honeysuckle dominant flavor that is pretty damn good too.
The addition of WS23 can add a whole other element to the mix and really transform it into a slushy type flavor instead of a more hard candy vibe that we get from the base recipe. I don't include it in the base recipe because it isn't for everyone.
Our main note is the sticky sweet nectar that is CAP Sweet Guava, and it does its job of conducting the train of flavor well here. We get a lovely, wet, pink (heh) vibe from this at 3%.
Backup comes from TPA Honeysuckle at 2%. This adds a sweet floral nuance to the whole mix without making this taste like sucking on flower petals. It bumps up the juiciness without imparting too much of a flavor to the blend.
Our final bump of wet comes from none other than INW Cactus. The pink undertones play well with the Sweet Guava and at 0.5% it's really the little note that seals the deal and helps tie the Honeysuckle to the Guava. There is a noticeable difference if Cactus is omitted, not necessarily a bad difference, but a difference all the same.
Finally a little CAP Super Sweet at 0.4% rounds some little edges and brightens up some odd notes that can arise after a few days of a steep, though to be fair I generally don't let the 60ml make it past about two days.
