    thanks, ok, just to make sure, the instant kava doesn't require a strainer bag right? just stir it in and drink?

    haha thanks :) ... so 2 teaspoons doesn't sound like much, is the instant somehow more potent or stronger than regular kava? I don't get it, it's just ground up much more finely, is it because more surface areas is exposed?

    Technically a true instant is made from green (fresh) kava that's dehydrated in a brand-specific way that produces a powder that easily mixes with water. It tends to be a good bit more potent than micro (much more potent than medium grind), also a good bit more expensive.

    Two teaspoons is a small amount, but with instant you'll want to start slow and work your way up to your preferred amount.

    Hey. Thanks for those two links. I'm new to kava and they basically answered every question I had so far!
