Been having this variety every night this week. Brewin up 4-5 tbls in 1-3 cups of water with a stocking. Id say this is on the more balanced end but still very potent. In general strong initial heavy effects that wear off fairly quickly (30~ mins) leading to general body and mental relaxtion. Today ive had 2 sessions with 5 tbls respectively with a small amount of water. Good effects, just the heavier ones which i tend to like more are a little short lived. Over all a nice rounded kava with some nice stimulation and body sensation. The other night i even had some interesting mental images of sparkling colours as i was trying to sleep! A nice complex kava that tends to really shine in higher doses. Maybe a little pricey though.
