This is absolutely now one of my favorite kavas. First off, the flavor is very different. I drink a lot of kava and this is the first waka's I've tasted that has a profile including orange blossom, pine needles, jasmine against a terpene-laden background. The effects are gentle but profound. For me, this is perfect morning, afternoon, or evening kava. After a few shells, a noticeable warm flush of relaxation passes through.the body and there is a slight headiness. Keep drinking to increase both, of course, but I've noticed that at high doses the "krunk" isn't out of control. Some kavas produce a sharp queasiness when you take them for a drive down to krunkston, but not this one! Smooth. Truly the Tesla of kavas. Highly recommended!
