This was one of my first kavas and imo a good starter one. I had very little RT, and I think the strength of this blend helped that out. I don't drink this much anymore as I have moved onto micros that have the makas removed. But, I will still use this one when I can't seem to get the other kavas to have an effect. This is a good standby and I have not been disappointed with it. I really like this kava when I need my muscles to relax and stop cramping. As noted on another review this kava is creamy with a light flavor. As such, I think this is a fine kava to do my first review on!
