A sweet blueberry ice tea for y'alls! Shake and vape certified.
This doesn't taste like an authentic blueberry tea, but rather like a sugary sweet ice tea that you buy bottled.
VT Bilberry Ripe is my favourite blueberry flavor, it's more like a blueberry jam, but even though it's so jammy it has a very unique berry sweetness that I like a lot. It's also perfect for this recipe as the bottled ice teas usually are very sweet.
JF Blueberry, another top shelf blueberry flavor. It's very similar to FA Bilberry, but better. It adds that tartness that the VT is lacking, together they give a very satisfactory blueberry flavor.
CAP Hibiscus helps sweetens up the berries even more, and 0.75% is just the right amount to give a tiny bit of floral note to sell the tea vibe even more.
FLV Lemon Tea adds a sweet black tea note, with a touch of lemon to it. We all know that a bit of lemon helps the blueberries pop, which is perfect here.
WS-23 is optional, it tastes great without it too. Use at your own preferred percentage. I like it at 0.5%, but some like it higher, some lower. If you are new to coolants I suggest you maybe go for 0.25%.
Started with Fuji apple and ended up with this concoction. Actually it did not have the wild melon in it last night. But as I was enjoying vaping it I found that the melon was just not showing up how I wanted it or envisioned it when I put JF honeydew in. Someone I know vapes tried it and said yummy grape! So somehow 2 apples, 1 pear, 2 honeydews, 1 cantaloupe, and 1 blueberry somehow makes grape. NOTES...I love VT bilberry ripe and this was what I wanted to build a recipe with that day. I really couldnt come up with a better partner to showcase this flavors than a couple of really nice melons. They work well together and they did me well again here. I also noticed how well melons work as a background flavor. Probably the best mixing tip I have learned thus far is that 97% of flavors out there by itself is not goos. Making a good recipe involves building something from the ground up and complimenting one flavors weaknesses with another's strength. Getting to know your flavors is a huge aspect of becoming a good mixer and you get that by mixing more. Anyways I was getting closer but for whatever reason I wanted these fruits to taste like they had just been sprayed by those sprinklers in the grocery store and you picked 5 of them up (and somehow blueberry jam was a thing mixed in those fruit) and shoved them in your mouth. I used pear to attain this effect. Just needed balancing from there. Sub whatever you have to except FA pear, Flv wild melon, Jf honeydew, and VT bilberry ripe are all integral and the recipe would not convey what I wanted without them. EDIT: This isnmy favorite thing I have come up with in the month that I began mixing and I also made it better, at least I think. I added 1% fw blueberry and it just sets this recipe from really good to banger status. Really would like to hear what you guys think. <3
VT-Bilberry Ripe-(1%)-The minute I smelled this one I knew this was it!! I used this to boost the "blueness" in the recipe.
TPA-Blackberry-(0.15%)-***Be careful with this one do not over use it is very potent* **I used the Blackberry as the main blue note because I pick up some florals out of it ,which sings with the hibiscus beautifully. (The blackberry has a tendency to stick to whatever you put it on)
TPA-Hibiscus-(1.5%)-Big Shout out to Edible Malfunction for pointing me toward this hibiscus and away from FLV, compared to how the FLV was making this mix taste like i was eating the stem with everything this work a lot better but can be perfumery at high %(Not Saying FLV is bad but for this mix for me it just didnt work)
(Removed 10/6/19 because of fading) LA-Lemonade-(2.25%)-This is my Lemonade base to provide that tartness I need to counter all the sweetness in this recipe.
FLV Lemonade-(2%)- As a replacement for the LA Lemonade I kept having fading issues with it this also bring some juiciness to the mix
CAP-Hibiscus-(1%)-Serves dual functions as an accent to the TPA hibiscus and an emulsifier to help everything blend.
TPA-Strawberry Ripe-(1%)-helps make everything pop and bring some sweetness to the party.
VT Yellow Passion Fruit-(0.25%)- to give it more of a tropical body (did experiment with FLV Boysenberry, FA Passion Fruit , VT Passion Fruit and FLV Passionfruit) Felt like this one fit the best and joined with the florals,
FWIW I feel like this capture the drink perfectly if there is anything u guys think i can sub to make it better etc. please lmk =]
I used 1 drop cap super sweet per 30 ml you can add WS-23 to your liking hope you enjoy as much as I did working on it then finally getting it the way i wanted
Starbucks Drink Inspiration- https://www.starbucks.com/menu/drinks/refreshers/very-berry-hibiscus-lemonade-starbucks-refreshers-beverage
FW Blueberry is the obvious choice for this and the best blueberry around imo. I just gave it a little boost with VT Bilberry Ripe. The shell is the glorious HC Eggroll for that crispy fried texture and powdered sugar note. For the cream cheese filling I used a combo of OOO Vanilla Custard Cheesecake, which is a little sweeter and icing like, and Inw Yes We Cheesecake which is dense and rich. This could be vaped right away but I really feel a week is needed to let the flavors in this mix bloom to their full potential.
I'm a huge fan of "Viserion" by @ID10-T, it's by far the juice I have vaped the most and always make sure to have 60ML ready to vape. So needless to say, I'm a sucker for the blueberry ice cream profile. I'm also a huge fan of @eyemakepizza 's vanilla ice cream trinity, it's just ice cream perfection. For this recipie I took his amazing ice cream base, adjusted it slightly to work with the blueberry combo I'm using here.
VT Bilberry Ripe is my new favourite blueberry flavor, even though it's more of a blueberry syrup than the actual berry, it fits perfectly for an ice cream recipie.
JF Blueberry is another fantastic blueberry flavor that unfortunately has been overlooked. It is very similar to FA Bilberry in that sense that it brings that authentic blueberry tartness, but it's a lot sweeter, and works perfect in combination with VT Bilberry Ripe.
FLV Boysenberry is used very low here just to give the other blueberries a more well rounded yummy taste and to further enhance the syrupy flavor.
FE Lemon Just a touch of lemon here as a contrasting flavor to both make the blueberries pop and the vanilla taste even better.
LB Vanilla Ice Cream / TFA Vanilla Swirl / HS French Vanilla Ice Cream aka the "Ice Cream Trinity" by @eyemakepizza is slightly adjusted to make it work with the rest of the mix.
WS-23 works very well here to give it the real cold ice cream feel. If you're not used to WS-23 I'd suggest starting at 0.25 - 0.5%.
JF Blueberry can NOT be subbed for any other blueberry. If you really want to mix this but don't have it, just leave it out and up FLV Boysenberry to 1%. It won't be the same blueberry flavor, but it won't be bad at least. I do highly suggest you grab JF Blueberry though, it's a fantastic flavor.
This recipe was revised 2019/06/26
TFA Vanilla Swirl upped to 3% (was 2.5%)
LB Vanilla Ice Cream lowered to 4% (was 6%)
I feelt that it became a bit too heavy both on the cream and berries after a bit of steeping. The changes makes it much more well rounded.
This is almost as good as wrestling 2 topless ladies in a pool full of KY lube. We started with "Blueberry Soda" and we wanted to use VT Bilberry ripe as its a nice syrupy jammy blueberry. We also wanted to use Fizzy Sherb so we started with those 2 and added the citrus soda to bump up the citrus a bit and add some more effervescence. We both LOVE FLV Boysenberry and it really seemed like the perfect berry to pair with VT Bilberry ripe. This mix alone with the WS-23 was pretty spot on, but we felt the need to candy it up and that's where the sweetener came into play to make this mix perfect.

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.
