Tested on a R200 Bonza dual coil 0.14ohm Flapton @ 100w
Manufacturer’s description – “FLV Thai Chai is a rich thai tea flavor filled with cream, toasted coconut and spiced tea. This flavor can stand alone and will really make you happy if you are familiar with the classic thai drink. If you are feeling creative, this flavor can be used to acheive a rich and sweet smoke note like a burning tropical hardwood. ”
1% - this has the taste of lemon grass with a floral taste to it and has a cooling sensation on the back of the throat
3% - Increase in strength, the lemongrass has picked up in taste, there is also a light coconut taste in the background and a very low amount of honey (the floral). The cooling has picked up in strength but is not overly strong.
33 day steep
1% - No change
3% - No change
I’d use this as a main 1%-2%, Background 0.5%-1%, Accent 0.25%-0.5%. Standalone 2%-3%
I’d use this with Tea, Tropical fruits, Mint and possibly creams as well as some florals like Jasmine.
Although an unusual profile, to me, this is quite a pleasant vape, I can see this being used as an accent in a tropical fruit mix or with teas and dairy for a Chai profile. Used at 1% the cooling isn’t overly strong but will be present, dropping down to 0.25% the cooling would be there but would be far less obvious, the other flavours would be present and would offer some complexity and depth to a topical style mix. When used higher the cooling and the honey like taste are more obvious, it is here at 2% and above that I would pair this with a Black tea flavour to craft a Thai Chai.
Flavorah recommended usage - Start at 1%
