We grew up in Southern California immersed in the delicious tamarind sodas from south of the border. This was a no-brainer. Raw tamarind pods are readily available year-round in San Diego, and are a perfect sweet, syrupy, exotic cooler which make for a great eLiquid! Tamarind tannins are very water-soluble and thus are very easy to blend into an eLiquid-ready flavor concentrate.
However, some of those unfamiliar with the tamarind/tamarindo flavor during our taste-testing process were surprised to taste a granny-smith, green apple-esque flavor! Our hands are tied. Ugh.... Tamarin....D'oh!
All of our concentrated flavors are extracted and solvated in a proprietary blend of VG and ethyl alcohol, ensuring those who seek to formulate their own max VG e-liquids. Shipped in clear glass vials with polycone caps. Recommended for use at 2.5% - 7.5%.
I've been using this flavoring at 2% in my mixes for years now and it's great by itself or with other additions. I had never tried anything Tamarind flavored before this so I can't compare, but it's a unique flavor. Like a cross between apple and some kind of melon (maybe cantaloupe?). Very tasty and addicting! And it's a concentrated flavoring, so a little goes a long way.
