    Great idea! My favorite flavor so far is the Key Lime. The flavor is crazy accurate, and it makes for a damn fine vape! Here's my favorite recipe I use it in:

    Key Lime Pie
    12% TFA Key Lime
    2% TFA Caramel (Original)
    2% TFA Vanilla (Bourbon)
    1% TFA Sweetener
    1% Lime Juice

    I've only used TFA flavors, but the mints are all excellent. I like them all together and mentholated, leaves me feeling minty fresh!

    Strawberry
    Kiwi These three together at between 6.5 and 7% each are DELICIOUS!
    Coconut Candy
    ******************************
    Chai Tea
    Bavarian Creme

    Start at 8% and see if you like it. If I'm not mixing anything else w/ it I sometimes go up to 12%.

    WARNING: It is a STRONG flavoring!

    ETA: I sometimes add Caramel or Dub Chocolate @ 2 or 3% just to tinker!

    I posted this already (somewhere else) ... but, maybe I can get a good response here ... :)

    So, are there any TPA flavors that ADD BODY & DEPTH to juice? I've already tried Bavarian Cream, Vanilla Custard, Cheesecake, Cotton Candy, Marshmallow (Vienna Cream and Vape Wizard, too - yes, not TPA). I like my juice really sweet, and with lots of flavor and body. So far, not having a lot of luck (they smell great, but don't taste anything like they smell - and no body).
    (Mixing them at 20%, 64pg/40vg).

    Any suggestions? Help. :)

    Thanks!

    Hehe. Easy mistake to make now that people are starting to call it TFA instead of TPA.

    Most of the flavors I wind up using are about 10%-15%. MAYBE up to 20% for 2 or 3 flavor mixture. I would start at 10% and work my way up. Sometimes less is more :confused:
    Oh, and try a few drops of TFA smooth - like 2 drops per 5 ml. It adds some body with very little taste

    How about plain Triacetin? Anyone using that and if so, what does it add to a DIY mix?

    Double RY4 at 7%
    Juicy Peach at 17%
    Mountain Dew at 20%

    are my faves. I dont use any sweetners so my % maybe a high if you plan on using those.

    There was a long TPA/TFA recomondations thread a few months ago that had a ton of good info in it. If I come across it I will post the link.

    That just gave me an awesome idea: Peach Iced Tea! I'm going to be reupping my flavor supply soon, so I'm loving this thread right now! I'll start posting some feedback as soon as I get a chance!
