So this kava is actually very good for an Amazon kava. Its taste is not bad, smooth and not really peppery, i mix with cashew milk at the moment. Its is VERY relaxing, which is surprising because it's also kind of heady so a very well-balanced kava. i have a feeling i will nod off very easily tonight. Only 8 tbs which for me is nice because lately ive been using 12-14tbs on some low grade.
