||10 - 15 drops
Been testing with kava kava root and its extract. Found a really cool mixture of kava root tea then I add about 10 to 15 drops of kava root extract, letting it steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Much more powerful then either the extract or tea on its own.
Expenses: Found the tea and extract at a health food shop. Tea cost about $4 for 20 bags and the bottle of extract $8, guessing it'll yield around 30 doses. The tea has other herbs including skullcap, so that adds things to the mix.

Preparation: Standard boil water over tea bag, I let steep and cool down for a few moments then add 10 to 15 drops of extract, let steep for 5 minutes or more.
Taste: Has a medicine flavor to it, numbs the mouth and tongue area. A hint of sweetness, goes down very easy.
Effects: Takes about 10 minutes before the effects start to kick in, muscles start to relax, all anxiety dissipates, floating sensation takes place. Lasts for 2 or more hours. Best way to describe the 'buzz' is what it feels like coming down after heavy pot high. Feels like I'm at one with everything, sort of meditative.
Notes: I heed the warning about overdoing kava because it may cause liver damage and other health risks.
Scale of 1 (low) to 5 (high): Would give this a 3, ok so it's not an all out buzz, more of a general feeling good mood but very interesting. Really enjoy making a mug of brew and listen to some really good music.
Best of all, this is completely legal!
