One of the most medicinal kavas I’ve ever come across. This kava leans heavy and kicks in slowly but the effects linger for a few hours where many kavas effects burn out quicker. The grind on this kava is fine and it has a nice fresh smell upon opening the bag. This kava truly feels like your sitting next to a warm campfire. Its gentle yet powerful… it’s the perfect night time kava.
Starting to realize I much prefer the cultivars that keep their basal and lateral roots at the natural levels (I guess that's 75/25 on average). Nevertheless this is a very high quality kava and the only reason I don't give it a 5 star is for the reason that it is only Waka. I also prefer Vanuatu kava to that of Fijian. Bula!
I took the kelai to an event where most had alcohol, and it was perfect for socializing. Also tried at home and it was equally suited for chill mode at home without couch lock.
