    You can steep them further but they are perfectly fine upon arrival.

    While this have been true for some of the liquid I bought from them, a good portion of it needs to sit for a while. I.E. graham cracker, vanilla cupcake, caramel candy, blue moo, Faux Hawk Sauce, and a few others. Some of it definitely had a perfumy, or medicinal taste when I've first received it. Setting it aside for a week or two helped that go away dramatically.

    Couldn't disagree with this more. 90% of MBV liquids need to sit at least 2 weeks to a month, some just to be vapable. There are countless posts on ECF about steep time for MBV juices.

    Haven't seen "a lot" of vendor juices that at least dont change or improve by sitting for a while, but some of the lab juices have already been steeping by the time they get to you. Evo is a fine liquid that requires little to no steeping. Moon Mountain Vapor juices, while probably mellow over time, are delicious out of the mail. I simply couldn't put it down long enough to steep it for a month. Killed 90mls from my 1st order in the first month.
    Ahlusion e-liquid is "good" from the mail, but still benefit from time, especially the tobacco line.

    Any of the Dekang, Hangsen or Liqua flavors are fine right out of the mailbox.

    Johnson Creek, though pricey, has liquids that are consistent from bottle to bottle, beginning to end.

    The liquids you get from some boutique sites like Alien Visions and Backwoods Brew need to sit a while. This is especially true with their most popular flavors because they are making it as fast as they can to keep up with demand. They don't have time to age a liquid.

    I dont like waiting either...
    Sadly, the only "real" way for one to find out is trial and error. It's all subjective in the juice realm. For example, I got a new flavor and liked it right out of the mailbox; wifey hated it and said it tasted like plastic. We'll get there, all of us. Good luck!

    Very good place.. A lot of their liquids are hit and miss with me but I guess it's that way a lot. You never really know if your going to like a flavor or not. But everything has reviews and you can kind of go with that. Their shipping is extremely fast for me.. Usually takes only 3 days with regular shipping. (unless it somehow goes cross country and ends up in new york.. then it takes 8 days.)

    Mahayana melon from Nirvana vapor. No need to steep.

    Steam juice needs little to no steeping in my experience, as well as Moon Mountain Vapor

    Halo juices are decent and don't need to be steeped, though a little on the spendy side. They have sampler packs, too!

    Moon Mountain Vapor. All the flavors I have tried are great out of the mailbox. And the ones I did steep (not on purpose, just didn't vape them for a while) didn't change at all after a few weeks. For me, MMV requires zero steeping.

    Completely agree. In fact I emailed them about steeping and they said "not required".

    Halo! Great sample packs so you can try several before committing to a large bottle. Most flavors I'm able to fill up a tank and start vaping, a few of their coffee flavors need steeping.

    Agree re: Johnson Creek.....especially their Red Oak line.....they're big enough to be able to make an ample supply and (likely) store some...FWIW, there's a "LOT #....." on each bottle....
    Interested to note Backwoods Brew is only in operation 4 days a week (".....our orders are filled for this week....")...I'd guess at least SOME of their juice would benefit from steeping....Can't speak from experience, though.....
    Happy (vaping) Trails!

    No matter where you go it really depends on the flavor. Research what flavors need less steeping or are good right away and get them along with a few you dont mind waiting on to steep. Some of the ones that need steeping are well worth the wait in my opinion. Kinda like a good wine. Well worth waiting for!

    What is steeping??? I don't use liquids so that is why I am asking.

    Ok, I'm not gonna ask what you do use, but...

    Steeping is kind of a misnomer. It's really aging. Like letting a fine ale or red wine develop the full body of flavor and bouquet that it was designed to deliver. Some liquids take weeks to get right. Some are fine right out of the mailbox.
