Just to clear up any confusion –
I have always advocated for properly labeled Kava. I believe that customers should be able to make informed decisions about what kind of Kava they buy and drink. If a customer wants Noble, they should be able to buy properly labeled Noble. If they want Tudei, the same. I wouldn’t want Noble-spiked Tudei, or vice versa.
Part of legitimizing Tudei is making a clear market for it. If there is market for Tudei, there is no incentive to “spike.” There are enough people out there trying to buy Tudei that there should be no incentive to mix it with Noble. In fact, Tudei can often be more expensive than Noble.
Bula, and enjoy this new chapter in Kava history!
