I still have some kona kava left over so I decided to brew up a little tonight, not expecting any effects, but just wanting to get rid of it. Amazingly, this time I actually felt it. I definitely believe the reverse tolerance spiel now. It's not as nice and clean as the melo melo powder though, it made me feel kind of groggy and hungover actually.
