I know you're probably accustomed to only seeing 5-star rated kavas on vendor's sites, thinking "yeah right".
This one deserves it.
The vendor has obviously taken great care in selecting the best kavas to carry, as evidenced by the fact that they only have two at the moment. I've seen so many vendors hit the market with a menu list a mile long. What this says to me is that this vendor is focused on the quality of few instead of the acquiring of many. Integrity isn't cheap, but it shines brightly.
Prep: 40g traditional prep w/ 400ml of water.
Brew: Dark, thin, less starchy. Physically easy to drink.
Effects: Balanced (high kavain), but heavy leaning (more sedative) Fijian kava. Really a pleasant chemotype for ending the day or slapping yourself to sleep with it's strength.
Overall: This is a fantastic kava. I'm definitely going to be keeping this in the ranks among some of my favorites. Keep up the excellent work, Art of Kava. So far they really have been art.
