I am new to Kava having started drinking it just last month. For comparison, I have had just Borongoru and Loa Waka from KWK. Because I had heard great things about KT, I decided to order from him this month. I got 8 oz of each- Ambae, Taevuni’s Secret, and Savusavu, pretty much created my own sample pack. My order arrived very quickly- ordered Wed and received Sat. The Ambae took about 30 minutes to really take effect, but was quite strong once it did. I mostly felt really relaxed and spent most of the time sitting and watching tv. It definitely mainly had a heavy effect because I did not have the same euphoric effects and sense of well-being as the Loa Waka. Ambae is more like the Borongoru but stronger and slower to take effect. As for the mild, short-lived headache in the morning, that has occurred with the other kava I’ve tried as well. Overall this seemed like a great kava and I’m looking forward to trying the other KT cultivars that I ordered.
