    Chamomile tea...

    Oh my.

    Via my standard extraction method, I just made a batch of chamomile with honey and vanilla.

    Delightful.

    So far this works for coffee, cocoa (delicious chocolate extract), cinnamon and flavoured teas. Apparently also works with vanilla beans, but I haven't done that yet.
    Because I'm marginally intolerant to PG, I use distilled water and VG. I was using 90% VG, 10% DW... but my yield is better using 20% DW.
    So... I add two teaspoons of dry ingredients or two teabags to 50ml base. Nuke it for 15 seconds to release the goodness, swish it around then leave it to steep for three days.
    After those days, I nuke it for 15 seconds to thin it, swish it around (squeeze and remove teabags from tea mixes...), then strain through a coffee filter.
    Usually 5 - 10% of the resulting concentrate in a juice makes a nice standalone flavour.
    DON'T try it with custard powder or biscuit crumbs 😜

    Oh - and my yield tends to be approximately 30ml. People without a PG intolerance tend to use 100% PG using the same methodology.

    Staceman, does your chamomile vape chill you out?

    First time I've had it.
    I found green tea quite relaxing... but yeah - 2ml of chamomile through the Moonshot has made me feel way chill.
    Not sure if it's psychosomatic or real... but I feel very relaxed and happy - feelings I like.
    I've been vaping green tea prior to meditation recently - but this juice is next level chill.

    I'll give that a whirl. I found it very week after one and two days... day three through to seven, no perceptible difference. My original source said steep a week, so I tested it at various stages.
    Is it stronger after three months?
