In order to get to the bristles, you have to peel approximately 1 cm of the outer layer to reveal the fibers.
Because they are cut from a tree, the miswaks vary in shape, length and thickness. We work with our suppliers to source a consistent length, diameter and straightness but there will always be exceptions.
It depends on how often you cut the tip off. Each MySwak is approximately six fresh brushes, so if you cut yours once a day, one stick should last about six days!
It is hard to explain what it tastes like without trying it yourself! The best way to describe it is a fresh gingery taste.
