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.

All of these flavors sound like they'd be amazing. Truthfully they really could be. This juice just feels sloppy. Individual elements might be great but the way they're combined doesn't work for me.

TVKs pear is superbly accurate. It's earthy and tart. The closest you'll ever find in eliquid. Unfortunately they chose to use a raw natural pear flavor where a cooked pear flavor should be. It just doesn't work. The spice from the crumble amplifies the aromatic nature of the pear. Basically it tastes like potpourri on the inhale. Very crisp and fragrant with a strong spice in the back end.

Sadly it's not enjoyable at all for me. It just tastes a bit weird.

This flavor spoke to me because I love all of these things so I figured how could I go wrong. In truth this flavor tastes pretty accurate to how I would imagine the physical manifestation of these ingredients would be. The flavors are very natural tasting and not the typical e-liquid flavorings taste.

The most noticeable flavors for me are the coconut and almond. The coconut is similar to the sweetened confection you’d find in a Mounds candy bar. Sweeter than natural but not over the top. The almond is the nice roasted almond flavor from Almond Cream Macaron. The white chocolate is just sort of there. I get tiny hints of more of a regular chocolate flavor more than spot on white chocolate. White chocolate seems to be a difficult flavor and I’ve yet to find someone who does it justice. I guess the subtle chocolate flavor would fit with the truffle aspect but there are many types of truffles so it’s hard to know what they were going for.

This is a decent flavor but it is mostly almond and coconut. Really good almond and coconut but I guess it falls short of the description and expectation. The complexities in the background are indiscernible enough that they are easily forgotten while the focus remains of the two primary flavors.

If you want to invoke the feeling of Summer through vaping, Raspberry Jasmine Lemonade is a good place to start. This juice is fresh, fruity, with a relaxing floral overtone. It feels like sitting in the warm sunshine.

I'm a huge fan of lemonade juices, but I have to just take tangent to talk about the Lemon in this juice. It's Meyer Lemon, MEYER LEMON! There is just something about the flavor of Meyer Lemons that just make me so happy. It's a unique tartness that can't be rivaled. The use of Meyer Lemon in this juice was brilliant. What it does is help cut down the sweet dominance of the Raspberry, keeping the juice more balanced and not having the lemonade flavor get lost.

The inhale is a straight, well balanced Raspberry Lemonade. On the exhale the Jasmine comes in, creating a delicate wispy floral in the finish. To those skeptical of floral flavors, this juice is not perfumey at all! The Jasmine works to add that extra element that really sets the juice apart from your average fruit lemonade flavors. Solid Clouds and no Citrus throat hit.

The Vape Kitchen KILLED IT with this flavor!

Taro Milk Tea is a great spin on a Boba Tea drink. I don't know if I could even begin to describe exactly what Taro-Root tastes like (kind of similar to a sweet potato, maybe?), but I can say that the Taro flavor takes me back to the Chinese Bakery around the corner from my best friend's apartment in San Francisco and the delightful Taro Pastries that they carry. I've had many a great conversation over those pastries. If I were to best describe this juice it would be as a cross between a Taro Pastry, and Almond Milk tea.

On the inhale you get the savory, sweet taro-root flavor, and the exhale morphs into a rich milky tea with a slight nutty quality to it. I don't know how Chef Oren did it, but I can even taste the flavor of tapioca pearls as well. I think what I enjoy most about this flavor is the Savory quality to it. Taro Milk Tea is an incredibly rich juice, so it would be impossible to be an ADV for me.

There is really something to be said when someone can invoke such a strong memory through flavor. Chef Oren did just that for me with this juice.

Again another awesome sample I received in my Vape Kitchen order. The description led me to anticipate this juice being on the sweet side, perhaps a little watermelon dominant, as watermelon can often overpower juice flavors. But I found this to actually be the opposite. Watermelon Lychee Green Tea is first and foremost a Green Tea Vape. The natural bitterness of the Green Tea flavor helps cut into the sweetness of the Melon and Lychee.

On the inhale I received the most dominant mix of the flavors, carrying the bulk of the sweetness and fruit. The exhale is a pleasant, ever so dry Green Tea flavor, which for me, actually emulates that slight bitter punch drinking a cup of unsweetened Green Tea gives you after every sip. I find the cloud production to not be as strong as some other Vape Kitchen juices, but it's still pretty darn good. Overall Watermelon Lychee Green Tea is a very delicate vape, with nice flavor. Definitely something to pick up if you are looking for a unique vaping experience!

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.
