    This thread is for posting your opinions on which juices are best steeped, and which you like best fresh.

    Let's hear it!

    I know that some here will disagree, but for me House and Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream are two of the very few flavors from CC that I have tried that needs to steep...particularly House.

    House is a steeper. At least two weeks, but will only get better

    Choc Chip Cookie, same as House.

    Vanilla. I havent managed to let it steep.... But does get better after a week!

    Cranberry. No need to steep.

    Cool Aid. No need to steep

    Creme de Menthe. No need to steep, but does change a little with a long steep.

    Mint. Really good fresh from the mailbox.

    Wow.... Thats really all I have in rotation right now???? Im slacking...

    I'm new to the steeping because I'm new to vaping, I was opening everything right out of the box.

    House is getting better all the time.

    Vanilla - great out of the box

    Voos Brew - was great out of the box, but gets better

    Coffee - I think it needs to steep, didn't like it out of the box, so am letting it sit for another week.

    Cool aid samples I received were great out of the box

    Amazing the differences in taste opinions on here.
    House- to me it tastes great right out of the box and gets better at about 2 weeks
    Coffee- I like coffee right away and don't really care for it as it ages
    Cake- needs steeping
    Banana- definately gets better with steeping
    Voo's broo- needs steeping, is great at about a week
    Apricot- awesome right away

    I was wondering about the two I have coming in the mail. Watermelon and apple cider--to steep or not to steep. Guess it really doesn't matter since I'll vape it as soon as I get it anyways. Just curious.

    Hi,
    Both are good fresh from the mailbox, but do get better over the first week or two. :)

    Finally gave the Vanilla a chance to steep. And though it is great fresh, it really does get better after a few weeks. It has a smoother and more vanilla-y taste now. So good. Sooooo good.

    I just got the Lemonade Sampler and was wondering if I should let the steep. Brand new at this so I guess I should also ask how does everyone steep their juice?

    Hi manatee, check the born on date on the bottles in the Sampler. They may be already steeped for you. I suggest 2 weeks as a steep time, and to just leave them closed and shake them occasionally while you wait. Of course some people like the juices best freshly mixed, so give them a try!
    And thank you!

    You're welcome. The writing on those bottles is a bit tiny, so it is easy to overlook. :)

    Anyone have an opinion on Blackberry? I just got it yesterday and figured it would be just like peach and apricot; good right away. But, I did not get much of a Blackberry flavor. It tasted more like Blueberry.

    House "evolves" and it's all good.
    My last 120ml got toasted via the USPS going cross country in 100deg heat so figure 120+ in a truck for days. Dark brown and mellowed down. Running the v's up and down over an hours session brought out other aspects in the mix. It's still house but different. Not the same as 2 week steep more like a 4.

    V I have no idea whats in this or I would be able to tell you more and elaborate on how much I like it. That burnt bottle is great. Your undertones come out. I just got nothing to put a name to.

    Then the idea of 'pre steeped' juice came to mind. And I smiled. I might need to do a 4 week pre order cuz this stuff is the bomb!
    Scotch gets better with age and apparently House does too.

    LOVE the pic. LMAO! I am so glad you are loving the House. It certainly does change, and for the better imho. It gets richer, deeper. And will remain a mystery. :laugh:

    I quite literally order my jugs of House a month in advance. Always worth it.

    Imo, they're all better when aged. I've tried House, Voo's, Banana, Black Currant, Pumpkin Pie and Voodoo. Voodoo absolutely needed to age. Honestly, I'm still not big on it after 3 week age. Pumpkin pie is ok fresh, but once aged is perfect. House is just good, period. Better aged, of course. Banana tastes like a real banana with a week age. Voo's is good fresh, better when aged.


    Can we please stop calling it "steeping"? It doesn't have a tea bag in it.
