At dusk of a gray autumn afternoon my palate lets itself be tickled by a burning desire for a warm drink … Here is the idea for today’s review! So while I prepare a hot cup of green tea that I’m going to sweeten with good acacia honey, I’m going to talk about the e-liquid Wisdom of the Mellobuddha line by the Californian Liquid Science Labs. The Mellobuddha brand has a total of five e-liquids with clear oriental inspiration names. Wisdom, it’s simply a green tea e-juice with honey.
The Mellobuddha product packaging for the European market was made in compliance with TPD regulations and includes a carton box with 10 ml transparent PET bottles and a child-proof cap. The dropper with a very thin beak tip is very comfortable for any type of refill; a little less instead of the bottle, as its rigidity makes it a little too uncomfortable for the drops dosage. The label and box graphics finally have a nice background texture with bamboo canes to invoke Orientality altogether.

The product description, like the rest of all Mellobuddha products, is almost non-existent; the manufacturer simply lists the ingredients of the e-liquid.
For Wisdom we have this official description:
Green tea with honey
On the smell Wisdom shows a delicate but well-present fragrance of green tea; a feeling that I would call fresh and refreshing with floral notes that seem to flow into hints of chamomile. In the background, a rather timid and remote note of sweetness seems to stand alongside the herbaceous scent. The fragrance as a whole appears to have good realism, I don’t seem to feel artificiality in the ingredients of the mix. However, the olfactory framework reveals all the simplicity of this bouquet. A simple but well done mix.
For the vape test I prepared my NarDa RDA in single coil with a resistance of 0.5 ohm for a slow and deep tasting.
At the vaping Wisdom fully confirms the olfactory sensations. It’s easy to say, it’s a simple but well-made e-liquid. The herbaceous taste of green tea takes the scene in inspiration, showing a linear taste, moderately dry but never too intense. The puff appears minimal and essential, a sort of Zen style, according to the oriental philosophy that inspires the entire line, but this feature does not prevent it from being pleasant and satisfying. The central notes show the second ingredient of Wisdom; so with a good dose of delicacy, a noticeable honey, a little shy and anomy, emerges in the puff, but plays the role of sweetener of the infusion in a dignified manner, bringing overall greater roundness to the e-juice. In the surrounding air, meanwhile, an unusual and strange fragrance emerges that reminds me very the strong aroma of propolis.
At the end of the puff, the perceptions become a little darken because the taste of the product becomes slightly more masculine and intense, which is more easily perceived with deep nasal expirations, which will reveal the most marked and full-bodied and almost toasted nuances.
As natural as it is, Wisdom reminds one of the many flavored green teas on the market. Above, just for example, we have proposed one of the most popular and common.
A reflection that does not affect the credibility of the e-liquid, but that can help to better understand the qualitative perception of this product. Good but perhaps not of excellent quality.
Wisdom is ultimately a good e-juice, pleasant and not tiring but, as seen for Karma, aromatically speaking, its bouquet is not innovative. We would say that it is definitely an entry level product if it were not its 70/30 VPG composition.
Pro: A pleasant all-day vape based on tea.
Cons: A tea with a few nuances and a little too floral.
