The top 10 concentrates of of TFA flavours:
Vanilla Bean Ice cream (TPA), Vanilla Custard (TPA), Cheesecake Graham Crust (TPA), Graham Cracker Clear (TPA), Bavarian Cream (TPA) (best of the BC's), Strawberry Ripe (TPA), Caramel Original (TPA) (the best caramel), Vanilla Swirl (TPA), Peach Juicy (TPA), RY4 Double (TPA), Dragon Fruit (TPA) and more. Honestly, it is so hard to choose their best flavours, as most of them are pretty decent, that being said, without TFA, we will not be able to mix our juice!
The Flavour Apprentice recommended percentage:
TFA flavours normally are weak, so you can stick to 5% rules, so you can start mixing them around 5% and increase it upon your need or recipe, most of time 8% would be a sweet spot for them (as standalone), as additive, you can lower the percentages to 2-4%. Some of their concentrates like Papaya are much strong so be careful of that, so for the best recommended percentages, it is better to look details of each flavours. In Liquid DIY most of our flavours have recommended percentages in their product page so you can use it as a guide, or if you are happy to invest a bit of time, just google something as "TFA Strawberry + Eliquid recipe", then you can find and read the flavour note of that flavour on ELR(eliquidrecipe.com), which it has all the reviews, recipes and lots more about each of the flavours.
