Avg. Dosage: 8 Tbsp. (58g)
I'm going to try to keep this short and sweet. This stuff is very finely powdered, perhaps the finest I've seen. It has a mild and somewhat malty flavor. It's very potent and 4-5 Tablespoons was enough to send me full blast, 7 Tbsp made me nauseous, but that is a huge amount for micronized kava. The effects are clean and heady, but also very relaxing and spacey...balanced enough to thoroughly please me, but not straight down the middle.
12 YEAR WAKA
12 YEAR WAKA
This kava was the closest feeling and strength that I've had to drinking fresh kava in Vanuatu. A near perfect experience. I've always saved the 5 star rating for fresh kava only, but now I think I can give this one 5 stars, along with some experiences with Mahakea, Borongoru & Mystery Waka. Top notch potency and effects, with minimal stomach discomfort.
The 12 year waka name immediately reminds one of BKH's 11 year waka, which is also quite good, but I'm not sure if they are exactly the same...or possibly different plants from the same farm. I've been drinking BKH's 11 year waka this week and don't quite get the same experience that I did from the 12 yr, the 12 year also seems to taste a bit different. Perhaps it's just a difference in the harvest date, I don't know. I think I recall Judd claiming he had sole rights to selling his particular 11 yr waka though. What ever the case, they're both powerhouse kavas and if @Paradise Kava re-opens their site, I suggest buying some.
