It’s been a while since I’ve done any kind of juice review. Changes to regulations and just general life things kind of put them on hold for a while but when I saw The Vaporist had released the latest flavour in their Seasons limited edition collection I knew I had to post something. Here are my honest thoughts on Seasons: Spring by The Vaporist.
The juice comes in a clear 60ml authentic Chubby Gorilla bottle with a similar label to past Seasons releases but this time with flowers skirting the central part of the logo with the name ‘Spring’ dead center on the label. It’s a lovely looking design that invokes a sense of Spring and stays true to the design of the line. The juice itself is a 70VG blend and the bottle I got was in 3mg standard nic.
Testing was done mostly in a Hadaly clone with a three core alien(3×28/36ni80) build from the Canadian Coil makers SaddleHorse Blues, 4/5 wraps on a 2.5mm coming out to 0.28 ohms and running between 35-45w. Using Puff cotton, rda rinsed and rewicked in between. Click here for a shot of the build.

Site description: As the Winter draws to a close and the worlds warms up, Spring is welcomed with open arms. To celebrate, we have brewed up a delicious sweet tea muddled with bright raspberries and a splash of fresh lemon.
Full yet balanced flavour will have you vaping this limited edition release all day long!
My thoughts: From looking at the bottle I was very much expecting a blue raspberry sort of flavour but I’ll admit in this case I was quite wrong. Spring is a heady concoction of bright red raspberry, sweet tea and just a hint of citrus. The raspberry in the mix is not entirely natural tasting but bright and sweet nonetheless with that classic red raspberry juice sort of taste. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a true to life raspberry flavour so I can’t really fault it. It’s pretty bold and ends up the most prominent flavour in the mix. But, what keeps it from being just a plain raspberry flavour is the addition of the sweet tea.
It’s not a super strong tea flavour and for the most part I mainly taste it on the back end or lingering on the tongue. It’s a subtle addition but one that makes a considerable difference to this otherwise simple flavour. With that hint of citrus, the tea gives it an almost Lipton’s sweet tea sort of flavour but again it’s quite mild and I mostly just get a lingering taste of it so it’s not overly sharp or overpowering as tea flavours can sometimes be. I’d say it’s well balanced but it definitely leans on the raspberry quite a lot not to say it’s unpleasant in anyway but I personally wouldn’t have minded just a touch more tea to it.
Spring much like the real thing was a pleasant surprise for me. It’s a touch on the sweet side but with that kick of tea and citrus it manages to come across nice and clean, almost refreshing for a raspberry flavour. This one really grew on me as at first I was ready to write it off as yet another blue raspberry flavour which if you know me isn’t exactly my cup of tea. Well worth checking out and being that it’s a limited edition I’d recommend you check it out sooner than later as it won’t be around for long!
