It seems to be as good as other batches. I have adjusted to it with my flavoring. I have bought several sample deals over the last few years, so I am used to the variations. This one is just "more" :) This suppler has always been good for quality and price. That said ... my last batch was strong and had a wonderful banana flavor when mixed with OJ. So I guess I was spoiled and now I'm whining LOL !! Thank Folks.

Welcome to the ILK community/ family fsahm!

Babel listed a great source to understand some of the factors that go into kratom flavors and tastes ,

Please let us know how the effects compare to what your normally used to ... and by all means you can inquire with the vendor you purchased from to ask questions if concerned . If they are a trusted source than there wouldn’t be any reason why they wouldn’t help you in understanding the flavor of your leaf .

Great to have you here , take care !

Is it very fresh, coming across as quite green?

Chlorophyll can have a bitter taste, so maybe that's harshing this batch. I'd ask the vendor that sold it.

In the kratom industry this is typically accomplished by exposing the leaves to the sun. Not only does this change the alkaloids, but the sun, heat, and moisture from the leaves break down chlorophyll(the green in leaves) revealing a red pigment. This is why red powder is red!

hey fsahm!

glad to have you here. i have noticed variations between batches from the same vendor who has the same supplier. its usually not too bad. but from what im told this is the 'dry season' and the batches can be a touch more potent.

so.. if you can financially swing it now is the time to stock up. i think jeff from PDO is correct, with COVID prices will probably be going up. some vendors have already raised prices a little due to supply/ demand/ shipping issues

lucky herbals you get the product vacuum sealed. insense does so as well on request. im sure a few more do as well but thats all i can think of at this minute

I bought a new kilo from my reliable source. Green Maeng Da. It seems really harsh compared to my other batches. Not an issue as long as it is not laced with something that I am not aware of. Anyone else notice a larger than normal flavor variation ?
