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.
sub Cap Vanilla custard for FLV same %, it's just as good if not better
This is straight up honey and milk. Super duper nice when you need something different. A nice milky base with a sweet touch of honey. This one is a steeper, 3 weeks minimum, a month is best!
A nice summer vape. I really hated honeydew vapes until I found JF honeydew melon. It's phenomenal and cannot be subbed so fuck off.
Erythritol is a great sweetener for fruits so yes I used it here, really not necessary though so you can leave it out.
CAP cantaloupe is a really nice base for melon mixes, it's a pretty nondescript melon flavor that works best as a background note. JF honeydew is the star of the show at 1%. The watermelon mix sweetens things up and adds a nice depth to the recipe. Cactus is here because juicy yummy and it tastes pretty melon like especially at low %.
This is pretty straightforward and honestly it is downright delicious and complex enough for me to enjoy. I normally don't go for fruity blends but this one kept me going for over 50mls, enjoy!
Shake and vape but as always I let my stuff sit for at least 3 days to homogenize.
So this was requested by a Reddit user looking for something similar to Jam Monster. I thought it was a good idea and interesting profile, so off to work I went. This is version 2.25 after my 7th revision. This is more or less the final version, thanks for looking!
Another edit: AP at 0.5% thanks to chewymidget
JF Biscuit + AP + FA hazelnut + FA carmel
Give this one at least one day to come together, 3 days even better. Let me know what you think, or what you'd do differently. Thanks and happy mixing!
I have not tried this with INW biscuit but I would sub it at 1% if you must
Edited : subbed out fa strawberry and used INW shisha strawberry instead
Sweet, thick coconut milk
I had given up on coconut vapes a long time ago. I enjoyed using FA coconut but I never was able to get a good mix that featured coconut. I cannot stand TPA's coconuts so I never wasted my time with those. I recently ordered a 5ml of FLV sweet coconut and fell in love, thus spawned this recipe. Here's some notes:.
This is another recipe that kind of just built itself, the flavors just make sense and the result is great. Shake and vape ADV for me.
I saw a post about someone saying they get a coconut taste from graham crust. I'm not sure I get it too but the bottle does smell a bit like coconut. I decided to throw it into this recipe and it just works.
FLV Sweet Coconut a stellar flavor. Before this I couldn't make a coconut vape that I found enjoyable. I mixed it at 2% solo and it tastes like coconut milk, it's just creamy and delightful coconut. Reminds me of coco lopez. I threw some other things in here just to help it become even more decadent.
FA coco a nice coconut that's light and reminds me of coconut flakes, threw it in to backup the FLV
FA Cream Fresh adds some light cream to the body of the milk. Really fits here nicely, I tried to use Holy Vanilla or Vanilla Swirl here but this works better imo.
TPA Bavarian Cream so I tried this with a couple ingredients like FLV vanilla custard (1%) and CAP VBIC (1%) but Bavarian cream is the answer. Its got a light brown sugar or what some describe as maple nuance which I'm attributing to the Cyclotene in it. A bit of vanilla from the BC also just shines here. Works very well with the coconut to thicken up the milk and compliment it so perfectly.
FA meringue An additive, this recipe doesn't need help being sweet but meringue definitely helps this come across as thick sweet as fuck coconut milk.
TFA cheesecake graham kind of an additive, any higher and it would take away from the milk but its a perfect counterpart for everything else going on. Contributes to the body of the recipe, to me its like 50/50 on the graham vs cheesecake.
I mix this at 65% VG feel free to go up to 75%, shake and vape is awesome and it just gets better over the first week.
If you want it sweeter I recommend erythritol (0.5%) but you can use your favorite sweetener or a drop of TFA marshmallow per 30ml helps sweeten things up too.
@Deejay_mills suggests adding 0.25% INW marzipan, I'm actually getting some today (5/3/17) and will try it out.
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
Simple, sweet, exotic. Add a fruit like strawberry, pineapple, or maybe some lime.
This is definitely an exotic fruit base to build on but delicious and dare I say excellent on it's own.
FLV mango is a smash hit on its own at 3%. One of my new favorite flavors for sure.
TPA Jackfruit by itself tastes like a tropical fruit similar to mango but also has a juicy fruit bubble gum vibe. I would not say this mix tastes like bubblegum though just a delicious mango vape. I use jackfruit at 3% sometimes but 2% has been my preferred level.
Keeping with the simple fruit blends for the spring/summer!
Do you like simple recipes? 2 ingredients provide mountains of flavor.
Inspired by slumberland pink hedgehog. Instead of grapefruit I did guava.
I've been really diggin this guava flavor its super delicious. at 5% total this recipe has flavor for days, my 10ml sampler was gone in an hour and I just made a 50ml batch which will get me through these last few cold days before spring hits.
this shit is sweet enough I wouldn't dare put sweetener but go ahead if you please.
Shake and vape certified.
It's the end of winter. I hope this is the last cold day in NYC. Here's to the summer.
I also said I'd be delving into fruits so here's another one.
My clone of Naked's Hawaiian POG. This is not 100% there but it is close.
I originally used FW blood orange but found it too top heavy and hard to balance, it either gets lost or gets weird. FA orange was on my shelf so I gave that a go in this version and it sits perfectly here. The recipe is built around CAP sweet guava and wow what a nice flavor it is. The FA orange is sweet, not really tart and doesn't get in the way of the passion fruit being all tart/sour and what not. I am having a hard time putting this one down. That lil bit of TFA marshmallow goes a long way taming the passion fruit and getting rid of some of the sharp edges.
Golden Pineapple just adds to the tropical vibe and without it there had seemed to be something missing, even though you don't really taste pineapple here.
This is version 2 for me after about 5-6 variations, can't say that i want to change anything about this because it's really damn good.
Another shake and vape for sure.
I am officially delving into fruits. I literally vape creams/desserts 99.5% of the time, meanwhile fruits are the largest and most neglected part of my flavor collection.
Wanted to make something with my INW peach and she's the star here. I browsed through my flavor bible and saw that bourbon/whiskey is a good pairing for peach. Needed a couple other fruits for body/contrast so I thought a small amount of papaya would add depth and play well with the whiskey. Lastly, the pineapple is here for its sweetness/tartness and it pushes all the fruits down into the body of the recipe. This allows the whiskey to shine in the top notes/exhale.
Feel free to bring whiskey up to 2% if you want it boozier.
Certified shake and vape but I give it a day or two to homogenize a bit.
