What makes Jasmine Milk Tea distinctively unique comes down to what goes into crafting the flavor. Much like the time-tested tradition of finding the best tea leaves to make the best tea, we took a Vape Kitchen signature approach to perfecting this flavor. The process to make each bottle is over THREE months. We take young green tea leaves and triple infuse them with a fresh, summery blossoms of jasmine which are then rolled into pearls. We take these unique sweet floral tea blossoms and directly infuse them into our signature VG blend for 3 months, which imparts an incredible distinctive flavor. The result: a rich and smooth, creamy milk tea that has never been done before.

This is an awesome juice. This one is my second exposure to The Vape Kitchen, and once again, it was knocked out of the park. Slightly toasted almond with coconut on top of a fluffy, sweet cream. That would probably be a good general description. However, just to say that alone feels wrong. It feels like it doesn't do the juice justice, doesn't give it the credit it deserves. What sets this juice apart from the majority of other ones is the depth to it. It's almost as if the flavors aren't a choice or a checkbox. Coconut...check. Almond...check. Here they exist on a spectrum. Coconut and almond each have many "shades". When you have multiple "shades" of the flavor it makes it truly great.

Wow. This juice blew me away. These guys are true masters when it comes to mixing up this one. The orange is authentic and light. The tobacco tastes very rich and complex and the scotch adds depth and character that make it feel classy. I don't know if there are really 25 flavors in The "25 flavor deconstructed cream" but I can tell you that it absolutely does not matter. The cream makes up a flavor and texture that seems to carry and help bring together the others.

The name didn't draw me in but the juice will definitely bring me back.

Words won't be able to do this one justice.

I picked up a 30ml of this a while back, mostly because I've had some of TVK's other macaron flavors which are very good. This one however, is phenomenal. Went back and ordered 120ml immediately. It's one of the few dessert vapes that I can just vape non-stop and never grow tired of.

On paper, salted caramel macaron, sure I mean it sounds good - maybe it won't transfer over to vaping exactly but I'm sure it would be alright - maybe something to pull out every once in a while... is what was going through my head when I ordered it the first time.

They are right - they nailed this one.

What stands out most is just how well it's blended, it's flawless. Too much almond cookie and I wouldn't have liked it as much. Too much caramel, or sea-salt, and I'd feel the same way. At the same time, there's nothing delicate about this either. It's full of flavor, silky smooth and with a wonderful body to it. It's very creamy as well, more creamy than cookie actually, thanks to the meringue.

I like caramel, and enjoy it in vape form, but haven't ever been blown away by it until I tried this. A nice hint of almond, a lighter but pleasant cookie flavor, blended perfectly with a lightly salted caramel cream. The flavor here might be my most favorite I've tried yet, and I gravitate towards fruity vapes. It's just wicked good.

I had to give it a 5 as I just cannot think of any criticisms here whatsoever. Now, depending on your tastes you might disagree - if you are expecting an in your face almond cookie flavor first and foremost, you might not enjoy this as much. Or if you were wanting mostly the sea-salt, etc.

But I can say it seems unlikely you won't fall in love with this if you like the profile. It has a wonderful intensity to it, a 6 or 7 out of 10, and the sweetness here is perfect. You can vape this all day without feeling like you've had too much. I think the cream rounds this off nicely and just gives it a smooth finish that keeps you coming back for more.

As mentioned, all of the macaron flavors I've tried from TVK have been great, but if I had to pick one to suggest - this one wins easily. Yes it is possible that it's a bit pricier than what you care to spend, but don't let that stop you - this one is worth every penny.

My initial take of The Vape Kitchen's products was not very good. I felt their juices lacked in flavor. This is in large part my own misunderstanding of 100% VG juice. To really bring out the flavors of 100% VG juice, you have to go with a higher wattage in vaping.

Originally, I tried Top Banana in a Smok Big Baby Beast tank with an X4 0.15 Ohms coil at 45W. I was able to pick up the fresh banana, but could not taste any custard, vanilla or wafer that is described. Now that the juice has steeped for a month and using the same tank but with the T6 0.20 Ohms coil at 75W, the flavors are there! The first thing I taste is fresh banana. The second is the cream with a slight (maybe too slight) taste of vanilla. This is not a sweet juice, simply flavorful. The vapor fills my mouth fully. More creaminess on the nose, banana on the mouth exhales.

Earthy tobacco and milky herbal tea are the dominant notes here, delivered with a creamy mouthfeel and an orange tint. The citrus is light, but delivers a slight sting to the lips, tongue, and throat if you hold the vapor in your mouth for a bit – which I quite like. I find the vanilla exists mainly in the aroma, less so in the flavor itself. It makes occasional appearances as an undertone.

If you could bottle the act of smoking your morning cigarette on the back porch while enjoying a breakfast of tea and orange, Opus 2 is what it would taste like. This makes it a good candidate for morning vaping.

When I was in the rocky process of switching from cigarettes to vaping completely, mornings were the hardest part. I found most eJuices off-putting, their flavors too aggressive for so early in the day. If I had Opus 2 at the time, it probably would have been a non-issue. The flavor isn't overwhelming, nor is it terribly nuanced – by Opus standards, that is. Compared to most eJuices, Opus 2 is still complexly concocted, but of the Opus juices I've tried so far, it's easily the most straightforward.

I never smoked in my life, I am grossed out by smoking or inhaling anything other than air until I sampled Vape Kitchens juices. Thai Mango Sticky rice in particular . Since that day I have become addicted to Vape Kitchens juices.

I now vape everyday with a drip mod and have tried many of their flavors at zero nicotine .

The owners are fantastic and the staff are amazing and helpful. I have met the owners at a vape expo and have been to the North Hollywood store several times. Each flavor is made with care by a chef

This is a wonderful company.

The juices are 100% VG and they don't use food coloring, sweetener, or diacetyl. Their flavors are bold and interesting. The juices haven't needed a steep of the several I have tried so far. The customer service is friendly enough and shipping is free and reasonably fast. I would give them a 10 but for now they don't offer online payment. It has to be over the phone or via PP invoice. Once they are able to do online ordering I will give them a 10.

My god, these people. These nice, nice people. I had some trouble with their Black Friday coupon -- not only did Mai give me a personal coupon code to use instead, she helped walking me through the issue and fixing the problem with the site that caused it right then, even though I had what is comparatively a really tiny order.

Today my order came, and it feels like my birthday. Little stickers and a note on the order slip, four 5ml samples (how did you guys know I wanted to try the milk candy and the sticky rice?) and a little pouch of candies.

At this point, I'm ordering again no matter what the juice tastes like. This place makes me feel special.

Update time:
I seriously didn't expect this, but I was contacted by Chef Oren after I posted this review. He'd heard I'd received one of their faulty caps (evidently they got a bad batch from their vendor and didn't notice until they'd already sent a couple out), so it looks like that's not going to be an issue any more.

The second part of this update is that, perhaps most of all, he was upset because I'd had a bad experience. There's definitely something human that's lost when you communicate with another person through a computer screen. Let me confirm: these people are real and passionate about what they do. They have absolutely proven to me that my one less-than-stellar experience was unacceptable, and even disturbing, to them. They did this not by bribing me or threatening me, but by taking time out of their day to interact with me as a person and figure out what went wrong.

Everyone has bad days. Freak things happen. How those freak things get handled can make or break your faith in a business. Consider my faith in these great people restored.

Lastly, since the bad cap I had was responsible for me losing my Lemon Cheesecake, they're sending me a replacement. So consider that full disclosure, or whatever suits you. Thanks, you guys.

PS - to the people who manage juicedb: I tried to keep my original review in this submission, but I guess it was too long and your page wouldn't accept it. I don't feel great about deleting my initial impressions, so if you could fix that, then I could provide you with the type of honest and accurate review I'm sure you want from your community.

To those who were curious, here's a brief summary:
1) TVK, based on quality and consistency of juice alone, is a 10 in my book.
2) I had them rated as a 7 because:
A) I was subject to what I didn't know at the time was a batch of faulty bottle caps that would pop off and sit sideways. I had a bottle of Lemon Cheesecake empty out entirely into my vape bag because of a faulty cap.
B) I had a difficult order with them that was messed up and was entirely my fault, and trying to get it fixed before it shipped was complicated and an exercise in the dangers of misunderstanding.
3) Despite the above, I still intended to do business with TVK based on quality of their product alone.

IMO one of the premier juice vendors around. Almost everything I have tried is not just good but exceptional in taste and quality. Their chef/mixologist works some serious magic on putting together some complex and well defined flavors that are 100% VG based.

Bottles and labels are nice. Flavors are exceedingly unique and well thought out. There are some common ones in the mix but they taste unique compared to other vendors. Their website is slightly frustrating to use but just a minor complication.

I had the pleasure of meeting Chef Oren at Vape Exhibit in Austin. He was incredibly friendly and talkative. One of those "hey stranger, pull up a seat and hang out forever" type of people. He is fun to talk to, quirky, and very straight forward. Really cool dude.

Not to mention he was mixing custom flavors on the spot and nailing them according to the couple people's reactions I saw. His challenge to me and a few others was to come up with the craziest thing you would want to vape and tell him and he would make it for you.

In all the juices I have tried I have not come across more accurate fruit flavors than TVK produces and I have not run across many vendors so welcoming and happy to see and converse with literally everyone.
