    I am new to this e-liquid stuff and I've ordered about 30 samples, ranging from tobaccos to dessert flavors to fruits. My question is what needs steeping and what can you use right a way?

    I'm pretty sure all of them need steeping to really bring out the true flavor. I usually never steep, but when I get other flavors I put away the ones I didn't like that much. When I go back to try them again, they're pretty amazing tasting and just all around better vape.

    You can use whatever you want right away though, it just won't taste as good.
    So really to answer your question, try the flavors out and if you don't like it, then put it away to steep.

    I'm no expert, but I read somewhere on here that fruit flavors don't really benefit from steeping, and it's mainly the tobacco blends that need to steep...

    I could be, and am probably wrong about this and most things, so don't take my word for it.

    TVR recommends steeping for all their juice, and I have to say their juice DOES improve with steeping. If you have an atomizer tho just drip it all pre-steep and if there are any you like right away, go for it and start vaping them. If there are ones you don't like, let them steep and try them again later. I just got some TVR juices today and I tried them all pre-steep, none of them were horrible, but I think the Expresso is gonna be better with steeping, so put that aside. I read somewhere recently that one may need EXTRA steeping. But I definitely taste potential in it. Really good potential. I think this could be the best expresso yet. I'm already vaping away the gingerbread and lemon meringue in cartos without steeping, I have bigger bottles of those and tho I think they will improve as the juice ages I think they are good right now too so I got cartos started on those. I am not sure yet what I think of the buttery popcorn lol. Unfortunately I got the wrong nic level, I got 24 mg when I wanted 6 mg!! Yikes. But it was just the 3 ml freebie so not a big deal.

    I know the French Toast Doesn't need it but I do steep it still.

    i know that strawberries and cream needs to be steeped, as does french vanilla coffee, when I first tried them both, they tasted waxy. Now after steeping they don't. Also, i might be going through the phase where I can't really taste anything, or it might be in my head, but some of the flavours have little taste, granted I did not get any flavor shots... but ya know.

    Buttery Popcorn highly increases in flavor with steeping, my gods that stuff is good.
