Just tried the temo for the first time.
It's so similar to the temo from BulaKavahouse that I suspect its from the same supplier. It's Fantastic!
Ground root has a very subtle purple hue, texture is pretty fine and powder kind of clumps together a bit.
It brews a pale brown color, lighter than most kava's I've had, and is noticeably very sticky/resinous, leaves a kind of coat on my hands after kneading, and it seems like that's a good sign.
Potency is great, only needed one bowl to really get going with a nice balanced effect, leaning heady.
Started with a great heady euphoria about 20 minutes in, accompanied by a nice light body buzz and no stimulation or anxiety.
Pretty much exactly how I remember Bula's Temo and it's been one of my favorite varieties in recent memory. It's a very good blender, I tried the Kelai recently from ArtofKava and was very impressed, and it's left me thinking that I bet the two of them together would be amazing.
taste isn't too bad, not really spicy or earthy, kind of mild taste. I usually add a little almond milk and it tastes very tolerable, unlike some other kava.
Highly recommend this one, you won't be disappointed!
