Thats funny that at first glance, despite the fact that i loved the taste of both waka and lawena, it wasn't strong and much enjoying kava to me. After a few pounds, the inverse has happen, surprisingly! I love both, they are for sur the less disturbing kava for my fragile stomac but more importantly, they give me the best experiances. Note that I still enjoy other brands , but Squanch it is clearly my first go to. Today I've ordered 2 lawena and one waka. I dont want to influence you much, but at least I wanna say cheers to Joe at Squanch for his kind and quick services and the huge consistency of his products (at least for the 18 months).
