Cardamom - VTA Flavour Notes

Tested @ 1% & 2% Diluted in 70/30 0 Nicotine

Tested on a RX200s with a Bonza 0.14 ohm dual coil Flaptons @ 130w. Manufacturers description – None available


1%:- Light, warm slightly Green Cardamom pod.2%:- This is now a much fuller and stronger flavour, this has a nice warm Cardamom taste,

with the mouthfeel of a freshly ‘crunched’ pod.

7 Day steep

1%:- No change.

2%:- No change 14 Day steep

1%:- No change, as this was such a light flavour I remixed it at 2% at this point as I felt this may be too light to use.

2%:- No Change 23 Day Steep

2%:- No change, this is about the right % for a pleasant taste of Cardamom as the main note in a mix, you get the warm spice notes along with the taste of a freshly ground/chewed Cardamom pod.

Suggested Usage

I’d use this as a main note at 2%-3%, Background 1.5%-2%, Accent at 1%-1.5%. I’d use this standalone at 2% upwards.

I’d use this with Ginger, Gin, Citrus, Rose Water, Coconut, Nuts and Cinnamon. This may also work in bakeries, Ice Cream, Tobaccos and Tea.
Use this with other warm spices and to add a pleasant warm spice note to a mix.

VTA Recommend 0.1%-0.25% in a mix and 0.5%-1.5% Standalone
