What a brilliant find Scrubs! Thanks for posting
Tea flavour: Black tea
Will let you know how it goes...
Nice one lil, Id be interested to hear how the tea tastes. I got some black tea from TW but it tasted like Earl Grey to me, I was after more of a Tetley flavour.
I've tried mixing a couple of batches with this today. I think my initial impression about the concentration may have been inaccurate. They are large bottles so I think the volume of flavouring I have is why it smells so strong when I open the storage box. I mixed one batch of coconut and one of cocoa/hazlenut using the following recipe from Kate:
10% distilled water
20% Nicotine VG solution
Both mixes taste nice although coconut taste more like those chewy drumstick lollies we get in the UK to me. The flavour of both could definitely be stronger. They are similar in strength to some JC flavours I've tried. It's there but fleeting.
Lol - well the coconut would be a good starting point for drumstick flavour I reckon. I haven't actually eaten one for years though so it tastes how I remember them to be. I could be way off.
I know what you mean about being a bit more scientific about things. This is the first time I've used a recipe and measured stuff out properly. I'm waiting for some of that flavourless from freddo as well. I probably won't be messing around with these too much until that comes along, hopefully it will give things more of a kick

do you have any tips?
i got coffee,strawberry and vanilla (traditional and madagascar)
Hi parapo - I haven't played around with them that much to be honest. I'm still waiting on my flavourless liquid and some tobacco absolute. I mainly got nutty flavours with a view to experimenting making something a bit like 555.
The flavours I have tried so far are coconut, cocoa, hazlenut and cola. The don't seem as strong as I originally thought they would be so I would start with them being 15-20% of the recipe. This could vary from flavour to flavour though, I haven't tried enough to say yet.
I've been mixing up batches of 20 drops and working out the percentages from that. at the moment the nicotine content has been very low so hopefully the flavourless liquid will spice it up a bit.
Let us know how you get on. I'd be interested t know what the difference is betwen those vanilla varieties.
i think the tradidional vanilla is something like it taste in ice cream,and the madagascar the extract of it...... i ordered them with this in mind,so i can be wrong though.....

i tried my first batch..... strawberry ,espresso ,vanilla-standard ,vanilla-madagascar.
the vanillas are as expected..... the standart version is like vanilla in ice or something,
and the madagascar bourbon something like the vanilla bean.
strawberry taste almost like heaven-gifts zero-liquid.... i was surprised!
but it need 15%. all the others are ok with 10%.
espresso was for me a dissapointment.
the people around me smelling the vapor said all yiammi, real espresso smell they said.
but the taste for me was espresso without sugar....tried that one?? ...i can't...
....maybe if it was a bit sweeter it would be ok.
any advice how to sweeten a flavor?

Vanilla is the toughest
