This kava is a great daily drinker for me. It tastes like chalky cocoa mixed with black pepper and drinks smooth with no bad aftertaste. I prepped it traditionally which makes it more "full spectrum" for me in effects. Relaxed muscles, desire to read or watch tv...a very chill kava. again was very greasy upon kneading which is usually a good sign. I give it 4/5 but the price is enough to where I'd rather buy something else.
