Gosh, I forgot about horchata. I used that for quite a while
I wasn't tall enough for basketball (but I had my own net above the garage at home... could do a "hook shot" from the end of the driveway) but too short and my tall friends would block my shot and laugh at me. Anyway, not big enough for football either (but I would have been a great receiver... regular "Jerry Rice") but was very good at baseball.
I haven't tried cactus, but everyone says it's like the universal thing with fruits (going to order some myself)
I'm sorry but isn't "latte" a coffee thing (not tea)? I like both so no worries, but the name of the recipe confuses me.
With pleasure. But first a disclaimer--I'm not much of a mixer and like very little flavoring, but you probably already know that.
I vape black tea as I like to drink it--milk and no sugar. But since black tea is a strong flavor, I always add a touch of something sweet and creamy to my vapes to tame it.
I like FA Black tea the best. My go-tos:
2% FA Black Tea
1% Fresh Cream
2% FA Black Tea
0.5% Fresh Cream (or any combination of your favorite creams up to 1%--I use FA only)
If you like black tea with honey, try
1.5% Black Tea
0.5% FA Honey
and/or optional 0.5% White Peach or Pear
If you like Earl Grey (all FA flavors):
2-2.5% Black Tea,
0.5% Creme Fresh
0.5% Vienna Cream
Black tea is also good with fruit
2% Black Tea
1-1.5% Apricot or 0.25-0.5% Pomegranate or 1% FA Apple (Fuji overwhelms the tea)
optional--if you like a little extra zing:
0.5% Lorann Butter Rum (sorry, I don't remember who suggested it--I just had it in my very old notes--so I can't give credit where credit is due)...
If you like white or green tea (my favorites because they are more delicate), try them with creams and fruit and honey (at 3% tea), but don't use FA Green Tea--it's really nasty. I like and recommend TFA Green Tea.
And another warning about FA Honey--this time from HIC's notes:
"FA Honey: Extra-strong flavoring! This is sweet, realistic, excellent amber honey flavor - deeper than clover honey, lighter than buckwheat honey. It is not floral or fruity, and it smells just like a bottle of honey when you sniff the bottle. It's very strong and very sweet! Even 0.25% FA Honey can overwhelm a recipe. I suggest making a small bottle of 10% FA Honey to use as your flavoring bottle. Using 1% from that bottle gives you 0.1% flavoring - which is a light 'spoonful' of honey flavor in a recipe."
I’ve found that if I go very high on it that it ruins the whole mix. I forget the recipe but there was one that used like 2.5% and it was gross.
Latte means milk in Italian, so, technically, anything with milk added can be a latte.
Au lait in French--with milk. Same deal.
Nice looking raised beds! You mentioned adding "semi"composted straw"... might need a bit more nitrogen to fix that (but not too much) Hope you get them all done (I know it's more work that it seems)
I love real bear claws. Needs brown sugar (or at least caramel as a substitute) Next time, consider adding (WF) croissant (very rich and buttery)
P.S. This where Fran comes in and says "I don't get any butter" Cupcake won't get you were you want to go, but croissant will If you really like cinnamon (like I do) try (FA) cinnamon ceylon (strong but goes well with bakery)
I was literally thinking a similar recipe myself today.
Cactus isn't much of a flavor as a standalone, IMHO, but is a great mixer--makes any fruit ejuice taste rounder or juicer, if you will.
Thank you much
You sound very much like @FranC and I mostly agree (overly sweet is a no go for me but sometimes like a little... "pre-mades" are all too sweet for me... I dilute them) I will never actually add sweetener to a recipe!
Can you please describe the flavor? How sweet. how much spice (I don't mind the spice so much... mostly want to know how sweet it is)
Thank you... not a big tea drinker (or vaper) but good to know.
That was my understanding... but now I know to go easy on the %
Talking about me again?
I am so undecided on this... I have to make a choice (more flavors or a scale) I just can't do both. I am so tired of using syringes ( but very good at doing it) I really want a scale but I also want to try new flavors (can't do both) And I need two new batteries for my new mod (that I actually don't need right now... more of a back-up) I think I'm going to get the scale and flavors and just wait on the batteries (they should be available for a long time right?)
A scale is a must IMHO. I used syringes once and then went to a scale and never looked back.
You are "I don't like sweet" are you not?
