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.

I struggled to find the right wattage and airflow with this liquid and never found the sweet spot. Fresh coils, clean tank and tip. Tried two days in a row. Didn't happen. The tobacco came through nicely but the coffee and toffee didn't come forward. There was a dark richness but I couldn't pick out coffee or toffee per se.

I'll give it a couple weeks and try again, but it might be that this is just not the right flavor for me, and that's OK.

Sometimes I get ripe juicy mango, sometimes a hint of green mango, sometimes a candied dried mango. It varies depending on wattage. I sort of taste the sticky rice but I admit I haven't had it very many times. There's a sense of creaminess, like coconut cream but without a coconut flavor. There is a lingering sweetener flavor that I could do without, but it is very mild. I would reorder. I like this. A lot. Delicious!

This is a really accurate flavor. Smooth, a little astringent like tea, and a very accurate sweetened condensed milk flavor. Delicious. 1/2 star off for a little too much sweetener, but it's barely an issue. This is fairly sweet but so is Thai iced tea. 75 Watts. Tons of creamy clouds. I could vape this all day long but there are so many other flavors to try...

This was a sample - I got two little bottles of this actually. I like it. I definitely get the cereal with milk taste and I can also tell that it has the peanut butter like flavor of Cap'n Crunch. I also get a berry flavor, like it's Crunch Berries, which isn't a bad thing but might not be what was intended. The finish has a splenda thing going on which I could do without, so a star off for that.

Wattage wise I played around with this and settled somewhere between 70 and 75 watts for the most accurate flavor I could get. I like it. I don't know if I would order it but I will definitely finish the samples. Thanks TVK!!!

One of my all time favorites from TVK. I like lychee vapes, it's a flavor that always comes off well in a max VG liquid. Add the sweet/tart red flavor of cherry and the creamy sweetness of dragonfruit and you get Dragon Treat. Bold flavor with the cherry up front. The exhale makes the room smell fantastic. I had a hard time finding the right wattage for it but finally settled at about 43-45. Higher watts make the cherry taste like cough syrup so I dialed it back. Huge clouds. This is an ADV for me.

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.

Update: 10/10. Enormous flavor list (over 200 I think), all the nic levels you could want, glass bottles, good packaging, fast shipping. Still max VG, no food colors, or diacetyl. Not sure about sweetener, I'll have to ask on my next order. Didn't need to steep, flavors are great straight out of the mailbox.

Previous review from 3 years ago: 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.
