Vaping Diaries #27: Ahlusion Review II

Raina and I checked out three more e-liquids from Ahlusion. This time around we went for a beverage theme, choosing Boba Tea, Mimosa Cocktail, and W&A Sasparilla. Boba Tea is based on the popular (for Asians, anyway) dessert beverage from Taiwan, Mimosa Cocktail is a lovely champagne and fruit mix, and W&A Sasparilla is a really unique juice that almost tastes like an adult root beer. As in our first Ahlusion review, we were impressed by the quality of the e-liquids and how carefully they’re packaged (best in the business, in my experience). Check out the video above, as well as more details and steeping details on the juices below.

Boba Tea: Raina and I were really excited to try this one, since boba is an important part of our relationship. She introduced me to the drink about 12 years ago and I’ve been digging it ever since. There’s something magical about the blend of milk tea and tapioca balls. We wanted to love this e-liquid, but ended up really, really liking it. Raina wanted more of the rice-like taste that comes from the drink’s tapioca balls. I wanted a little bit less sweetness and a bit more creaminess. Despite not quite tasting like the beverage, the combination of tea, milk, and Asian sweetness (my nickname, btw) made this my favorite juice of the three. One of the cool things about this juice is that Ahlusion allows you to add different fruit options. In the future, we’ll be reviewing Boba Tea with Lychee, which is how I usually order boba. We’re really psyched to try that one.

Mimosa Cocktail: As with the juice above, this one is available with a variety of options. You can add extra champagne and fruit flavoring, as well as choose different fruit flavors (orange, peach, pear, pomegranate, etc.). We went with the standard champagne with orange. Both of us felt like the champagne flavor was really slight. Although the orange flavor was delicious and tasted natural, we both wanted more of a champagne kick (which, perhaps, says something about our drinking habits). This is something we’d definitely get again, but with the “extra champagne” option.

W&A Sasparilla: This was Raina’s favorite of the bunch. Some people are going to mistake it for a straight root beer flavor because they’ll be thinking about A&W. It’s definitely not a standard root beer flavor. This is a unique, spicy, and complex juice that’s almost like root beer for grown ups. In some ways, it’s like comparing a wine cooler to a fine Bordeaux. The sasparilla comes at you right away. It immediately reminded Raina of the sasparilla beverages that are popular with kids in Asia. She was enamored with the striking flavor and the effervescent spiciness. While I definitely enjoyed and appreciated the juice, I liked it less than she did. Backwoods Brew’s Root Beer was more to my liking as an all-day vape. For me, this was a wonderful juice in small doses.
