    Have you checked the reviews. It may already have the taste of maple syrup added for you.

    This looks interesting. A little too peachy for me, but maybe something to play with. I’d like to figure out a direction to go with the eisai tea.

    She has some good recipes Mel, might want to follow her on ELR. They are usually complex and I'm not a big fan of FLV but I get some great ideas reading her notes.

    I'm going to mix a tester with the Eisai Tea to see what it tastes like solo.

    I'm also going to make a simple mix

    Eisia Tea 1%
    TFA Green Tea 4%
    Pom 2%

    Funny I bought 30ml of TFA Tiramisu in 2013, I bet I have 29ml. Amount for 15ml, .15ml.

    I did a direct swap of Juicy Peach for White Peach. I don't think I'll be impressed with White Peach. The smell reminds me of melon flavors that include the rind except this includes the pit. From the smell of the mix I think the FA is weaker than the TFA.

    French Toast smells much less bad in the mix. I hope I balanced out the "You can taste the egg" reviews. I don't try to taste the egg with the real thing.

    If it wasn't $50 I'd get a gallon of maple syrup.

    I bought quart bottles of maple syrup when Sam's had it cheap, years ago.
    I am a big fan of putting lots of syrup on, but the real stuff lasted for ages, because a little goes a LONG way. It's that good! We have a maple syrup producer a little north of here. They do sales when season is over, sometimes.

    Benedict Cumbermint (Cucumber, lime, Menthol)
    Sweet Summer Chilled (Kiwi and Honeydew)
    Cool as a Dewberry (Cucumber Mint, Honeydew, Pear)
    Lemonade with FA Forest Fruit

    It should interesting. I am hoping for something very refreshing. The lemonade is my Pink Fizzy Lemonade with Forest Fruit instead of Strawberry and Raspberry. I have been meaning to try that for a long time and all of the talk about Forest Fruit here reminded me.

    I'll be watching for the recipes.:) Never thought of pairing cucumber with menthol. Probably cause I'm not a big fan of menthol but a small amount is good with me.

    I'm all for simple recipes.I know that's not always possible but I try. Working on a simple Cucumber Cooler. Also thinking of a recipe for the Forest Fruit. Maybe a simple tea to start.

    Did Cucumber Benedict a few months back per request. It was horrible but I wouldn’t like this combo anyway:nah: Had to make myself taste it to be sure it was balanced correctly:facepalm: I had help from a couple friends but none of us liked the combo of the main 3 prominent flavors together. I used mint rather than of menthol. The requester loved it though and wanted more. To each their own!

    A friend did their own rendition of this a few weeks ago... Forest Lemonade. She was mostly concerned with lemon fade. So because that was her focus, she neglected to get the mixed berry note right the first time around. Once she added a combination of rasp and blackberries, it turned out pretty good:p I have no doubt yours will be superb as you already have lemonade down and write great recipes!

    Btw, your pina colada has been quite the hit around my little community!:thumbs:

    I get distracted too easily. I really want to do more with the teas.
    Everyone has different opinions on this and I am a lover of small tanks. You have to fill more,yes,but I don't mind that. IMHO the small tanks give the best flavor. With that said the EgoOne tanks are my fav and the CLR 1.0 coil can be rewicked countless times. Easy to recoil if you have to. Should I use one of my bigger tanks I'm more likely to grab an STM. I do have others I use on occasion. I'm strickly a MTL vapor.
