First shell down and this is some pleasant stuff! The powder itself was incredibly dark, possibly the darkest I've ever seen a kava. Thought that would create a more bitter taste, but it wasn't too bad at all.

I'll report back as I finish my session, but so far this is some quality kava!

Both kavas are superior, they are both oily on prep, dark but not overly peppery. I thought I should type this before I continue. It's going to take me a while to decipher the Koro, I like it though, it leans heavy.

The Kadavu is outstanding and it only took a sip for me to realize it's very potent.
Aah that's fantastic! So glad you're loving these! I knew the quality but honestly yalls opinion is what really matters. As far as the aesthetics of the unboxing, I'm working on making that a bit nicer with some clean labels.

Session is about done. I really enjoyed this one! Very balanced but definitely leaning towards heavy. It made me sit down and watch random New York Times documentary's on youtube for a good hour. I have no complaints about it at all! This seems like it could either be a weeknight or weekend kava. Even as a social kava I could see it being a good pick with a small group of friends.

Pleasant and tranquil would be two words I'd have to describe it as at this point.

Great job @Artofkava

Hey all! I'm going to post this in another thread later but wanted to get this out to yall here first. Thank you again for the awesome reviews and added vendor status! Based on the feedback on pricing above, I've lowered pricing, added in shipping and added a sample pack option for our two kavas. Pricing is tiered the way it was before but with 8oz @ 35, 1lb at 65 and 1kg sitting at just about 59. The 2 4oz sample packs are 40. After checking other pricing around, we were sitting at higher pricing than most and equal with some. I added in the new pricing as a sales price. Now we're sitting nicely within the range of the other great quality kava providers with this range of pricing. If we do well at this price, I'll move it over permanently. It's a much more tight margin, but It's certainly doable. Let me know your thoughts!

I have another suggestion for you which might incline people like @ThePiper To buy your better priced kg option. Do a sample pack of 2-4oz of each cultivar and set the price point a bit lower than your other options so people who are on a budget can see if they like one of your products without having to buy a large quantity
Hey! sorry it took a minute to get back to you on his. I took your advice and added a 3rd option and fully updated pricing. Thanks for suggesting this and hopefully it's more of what @ThePiper and the like customers are looking for. We're working on getting everything else done as well. cheers!

I tried the Kadavu and Koro and can report my initial impression that they are both quite good. Dark in color, earthy but mild in taste and reasonably potent. The Koro seems to be a bit on the heavier, mellower side and is probably my favorite of the two so far.

Off topic: I was intrigued by the huge variety of artisanal teas in your other store, so I ordered an assortment as a gift for my spouse who is not a kava drinker. So far she has tried the "blackberry sangria" and really likes it. Recommended for anyone else with an SO who considers kava to be repulsive dirt water and prefers tea that smells and tastes good. Such an odd preference right?
