Nor have they lost mine. But I am checking the status daily as my supply goes up in (non)-smoke.
I agree, I'm not going anywhere.

I guess I should clarify why I'm refusing to call the new recipe "New Geoff's Blend". I crafted the GB recipe well over 2 1/2 years ago. It has been my ADV during that time. I've mixed thousands of bottles of the stuff, I know what it's supposed to taste like.
What Lorann's did to their cinnamon, was just enough to augment that flavor that it in no way SHOULD be called Geoff's Blend. The cinnamon that we'll now be using, while it is fantastic, again, makes the recipe taste no way like the old Geoff's Blend tastes like, so it doesn't get the name attached to it.
It's not an ego thing at all that prevents me from sticking my name on the new recipe. It's me trying to avoid people doing the side by side comparison thing. What it is, is that if we attach the name to it, people will automatically start comparing it to the "old Geoff's Blend". The new cinnamon we'll be using changes the flavor in a fantastic way, but it now makes it primarily a cinnamon flavor, but so many flavor layers to it, that it's just a different flavor altogether.
So to help people not make the association with the old, we just have to call it something new. It's a stupid marketing psychology thing.
Totally makes sense. I can't wait to try the Burmanii! I'll probably drop in on Saturday and pick some up!
Okay, I posted this in the BUrmani feedback thread on facebook, but I will post here too for people who can't see the facebook thread.
I found a brand new carto last night, so I filled it up with Burmani, and holy crap I cant stop hitting this thing. I would agree with most of the others and say that it is a totally different cinnamon from AC. To me it tastes like cinnamon sugar. I dont know if you've ever chewed on a cinnamon stick before, but to me it has that same woody flavor with a nice sweet overtone. The throat hit is pretty good for a 12mg juice (I usually vape 18-24mg). On the draw, you can taste the sweetness of the juice and a little spice in your mouth. On the exhale, you get the smooth woody cinnamon flavor with maybe a little hint of nutmeg. This is a really nice vape, especially for the season. I love flavors that you can taste on the draw like AC and geoffs blend(RIP), and Burmani is a flavor that does that for me. I could see this becoming an ADV for me in the winter months. It tastes great when it's cold outside,(it's 28 degrees here this morning) kinda warms up your insides. Great job Geoff Braithwaite and Tasty Vapor! Thanks again for sending me the sample, yall rock!
Phew. I just ran out of my last batch of AC. I have worried as I have vaped nothing but AC and GB now for 2.5 years. I've literally gone through 90+ ounces of those 2 flavors in that time. I can't decide whether to try the Burmani or the new AC. I gather both will taste different than the old versions.
Edit: looks like Burmani was taken down.

The new A/C is on sale this week, always a good time to try a flavor. Yeah it's different. Gotta say though, we haven't had a single negative feedback yet(....crap did I just jinx that or what?). We decided to put the new Burmanii in sample sizes to replace the GB slot, and it should be up in a few days if you wanna try a 1/3 oz (10ml) for $6.75. the New A/C is already in samples. Geoff has us waiting to get MORE of the the new ingredients in before we put Burmanii on sale, but it'll be soon.
The new Burmanii will be up on the site, and on sale on Friday at midnight. I think the liquid description does it a fair amount of justice:
Burmanii (shorted from Cinnamomum Burmanii) describes the Indonesian cinnamon bark oil used in this revival of the Geoff's Blend (RIP) recipe. The cinnamon oil lends a rich, decadent and woody flavor as a base while the other flavors playfully dance around it. Which is the best way we can describe it.
While the recipe shares all the same components of the former liquid recipe, the new cinnamon alters it in such a way that it really is its own unique and wonderful flavor. Don't think GB when you vape it, think Burmanii!
We've got 1kg of the CB (cinnamomum burmanii) which should hold us throughout the month (I'm hoping) and 2kg in transit.
Sadly, because of the expense of this cinnamon (a whopping $486.00 per KG, but you guys are worth it) we can justify absorbing the cost at a RETAIL LEVEL ONLY. Which means this will not be available at a wholesale level for those of you who purchase wholesale.
So, this liquid will ONLY be available on the Tasty Vapor site, the Tasty Vapor store, (and possibly the DigitalCiggz stores).
