    Trying my first Pink Guava mix and the .75% FA Lime Tahiti is way too strong in it. It's calling for a remix though. Interesting taste buried under the lime I think

    I haven’t tried the pink guava yet. I’m interested to see how it turns out for you

    I got new coffees written. Was going to make them but found I have to run to the store to get vinegar for pickles. I hate to ask for 10% on a few dollars but it will be my first chance to use a senior discount at this store.
    Mixing may not get done until after work tonight.

    With the FA Cappuccino I'm going to try a caramel cappuccino to go against the TFA CaraCap.
    Espresso is getting a mocha treatment.

    Have you tried the Amber mixes yet?
    Curious if you think it's sweet since it is a sap flavor. The way everyone seems to taste it different I wonder which way you'll go. I like spicy, I get spice from it.

    I am vaping this one in my Asmodus Zesthia today and it is very, very nice. The balance of flavors is good and I think my decision to increase the lemon and change it to FE Lemon was the right one.

    Sweet Summer Chilled by TheExiledTheory on ELR
    • Cactus (INAWERA) .25%
    • Honeydew Melon (JF) 2%
    • Kiwi (FA) 4%
    • Lemon Juicy (JF) .15% (I thought it needed more lemon so used 1% FE Lemon)
    • Pear (FA) .50%
    • WS-23 .75%

    I only have a tester with Plum that I haven't tried yet. I have big doubts about liking it.

    Not having a great day trying older mixed stuff. Gotta pay more attention to the sweet factor. Sucks.

    I need to do testers on FA Pom,TFA Pom and TFA Kiwi. What % should I use? FA Kiwi too.

    Ok, NR info is out and I need to start a cart for tomorrow. :shock:

    What Purilum flavors (and/or other brands' flavors) do I *need* to get from there (that are hard to find elsewhere) that I positively need in my stash? I may go for more nic/PG/VG, too.

    Thanks, @dc99 ! In my excitement, I forgot to save an edit to my post with the code, because I was perusing the Purilum thread. :oops:

    You used a pretty small amount. You may not even notice it.

    I agree with PJReid's FA and TFA Pom amounts.

    I might skip the NR sale. I’ve still got a bunch of purilum flavors I haven’t tried yet.

    I read this and laughed so hard I peed a little! :lol::lol::lol::laugh::laugh::laugh::lol::lol::lol:
    Lots of "depends" qualifiers to that question (isn't there always?!:D). But, for me, I would probably start with something like this:
    1% FA Forrest Fruit
    4% TFA Green Tea
    And then go from there. Give it a three day rest and start test-vaping. :)

    I have to confess that I haven't mixed with TFA teas since using my subtank mini. Then... I was using the TFA Green Tea, and Earl Grey Tea, at a whopping 13% (along with honey and cream; which I imagine was adding some muting). It was full-flavored; but not overwhelming. With today's hardware, and my semi recovered taste buds, I would start with the above.

    I could see the tea needing to go up as high as 6-7%. And, depending on how berry forward one wants, the forest fruit ranging from 0.5-1.5% (maybe even 2%; if the FF is to become the centerpiece). But, that all seems to be the high end of the spectrum to me. :D

    The Capt.shay Berry Berry Good recipe (that JC previously shared) is a staple for me. The Forrest Fruit at 4% is steadfast in its dominance. However, it is still easily steered to a lighter brighter mix, with just 1.5% of additional berries. Sub your preferred berries for the raspberry/strawberry combo and bend it to your liking.

    And for you, FranC; I would 86 the marshmallow all together (though I find it still has a pleasant tartness even with it). Maybe a meringue, if you have one you can tolerate, for mouthfeel? I could see the cream notes needing de-sweetening, to appeal to your palate, as well.

    Honestly, I find it on the upper end of my tart preference, as is. Maybe do a small tester, with just the MM removed; and then see where you need to go from there.
