I left my clay in the bag all day untouched & I tasted it today & it still taste like ... An oven . Like all the non sticky products that's build up on the inside , the metal taste , the taste is horrible . I sure hope this clay will get its earthy flavor back soon since this is the last little but of clay I have left . Ohh I sure hope it tastes good again .

I just ordered Ghana clay from Soul Sista. I hope it will not take long to be delivered. I will continue to experiment with different clays until I find something to satisfy my taste. I thought the price would be costly but it was not especially since it is coming from the UK.

Is odowa the Kenyan Nakumatt clay?
Odowa is not the nakumatt clay... Odowa is a soft grey or yellow stones mined mainly in the western parts of Kenya . It's usually eaten unroasted .. Wahu foods used to sell it though they ran out and never restocked.
The nakumatt clay is just clay which has been roasted .. It tastes nice but not the same as odowa. Odowa is really earthy when sundried. Occasionally some of the soft stones can taste salty or slightly sugary depending on where they were mined but they are usually completely unprocessed...
The nakumatt roasted clay has been watered and then roasted in a kiln..

This is to announce that I have currently run out of the chunky smooth clay but still have the moulded egg shaped clay in stock. I will let you know as soon as I have some in stock. I will also like to thank my cherished customers for their patronage and patience. I really appreciate it. Not forgetting all the friendly banter, learning and sharing on the forum. It is always something to look forward to at the end of the day.

3rd day that the clay taste nasty & it's finally sunny outside . I'm going to let the clay sit outside in front of the sun & hopefully that'll make the taste better . Really don't want to throw it out considering this is all I have left .
