T Juice: Red Astaire
There has been some major praise for the T Juice flavour Red Astaire with it winning the ECigClick E Cig Awards 2014 Best Flavour award
So it’s safe to say I was really looking forward to getting my mitts on this juice to see what all the fuss is about. So that’s exactly what I did!
T Juice Say: “The lush taste of red berries and black grape is stampeded by verbose overtones of sweet eucalyptus, aniseed and menthol in a flavour that will stay dancing on your tongue for a long time after you have exhaled.“
E Cig/Tank used in this review: Eleaf iStick with Aspire Nautilus
Having a whiff of this straight from the bottle reminds me of smelling a fruit cordial, I can’t quite put my finger on what it is though. Maybe Vimto or Ribeana? I haven’t had either for a long time so can’t quite be sure.
I filled up my Nautilus, took a puff and the first thing I thought was ‘Tunes’.
It tastes like the cough sweets, maybe the cherry version? I don’t mind tunes but I wouldn’t choose to eat them if I didn’t have a cold.
I really had to give this a bit of time to see what all the fuss is about.
After giving my taste buds time to adjust the mix of flavours does start to come through a lot more. The fresh taste of the menthol and eucalyptus provides a fresh blast while the red berries, mainly cherry for me, is there on the exhale.
I can see why this is such a popular flavour, it is actually really refreshing. The thing is my expectations were sky high so I think I was expecting to be blown away and that this would be my new go to juice and it’s not.
It may come across that I don’t like Red Astaire but that’s not the case, it’s a very nice flavour but I just can’t get used to having an all day vape that tastes of Tunes!
Definitely a juice I would revisit every week but not an all dayer for me.
With the 80/20 PG/VG mix the vapour volume was good.
T Juice are an ECITA member that make all their e-liquids in the UK with ingredients sourced from the US or EU:

- 30ml £15.95
Voted the best e-liquid flavour in 2014 this is a very popular flavour. For me it is good but not outstanding.
I can see me going back to this every week but I won’t be using it as an all day vape. Too similar to Tunes for using all day!
