Your Kava Root and Pestle

Your Kava Root and Pestle


You purchased your kava and found that the grind isn't necessarily to your liking. You may prepare your kava root by kneading it and don't feel as though those chunks will release their kavalactone goodness. 

Don't be worried, there are a few ways you can take care of this. 

First get a large bowl a a larger sieve with a handle. The bowl should look like it'll hold at least a gallon of water when you're working with about 1kg. The sieve should have small enough holes to not let the big chunks come through but not so small as to only let the finest powder through. Most grocery stores sell these in their kitchen section. 

Next you'll need a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle for your kava root chunks. A blender will also work but, one of the nicer ones that can make a flour. Blendtec is our favorite brand of these types.

From here you will use the seive to strain out the larger chunks of you kava root. You'll be left with all of those large chunks.

If this amount is much larger than about 1/10th of your bag. I recommend that you contact your supplier. The more above that amount, the more I highly recommend you do that. Let's say it's about half your bag. That's way too much and your supplier should not be sending customers root this thick unless you're specifically ordering "tea cut".

If it's about a Tenth or your order plus or minus a bit is fine, then move on to the next step.

Add your chunks of kava root & pestle to your mortar little by little. Start grinding it up using your pestle. Do this until your satisfied with your level of grind. 

You might prefer this grind to the grind you get from anywhere else because you're doing it to your specific taste. So it's a bit if a nice surprise to get a bit of this separated out every so often.

The blender or coffee grinder method is much the same. It's much much faster to get it all done. However, it can heat up too much if you're not careful and it can get too fine of a grind. Use the pulse option. Also get a long spoon to to dig out any stuck kava from the sides...when it's not on of course.

Now your full batch is ready to go. Now power needed just your kava root and pestle.

Awesome 👍

I'm on day three of the tempo kava and it seems I feel a little more each day. Since I'm a first time user I'm hoping it will keep getting better as it builds up. I love the feeling and love the service. Answered right away and was very helpful and knowledgeable. Will definitely buy more!

I am new to kava and when my getting used to period was up i found this one to be what i imagined and heard..i tried 3 kinds. the shipping was very quick using ups ground. it was a clean relaxation that lasted a few hours and the flavor was lighter and nuttier than the other two. i have chronic pain so this will be a great addition to help with all the pains..ty.

Temotu Purple is my favorite color

This one has a taste of its own, and I love it. I hope it's more than just for a "Limited Time" !

No Effect

Wanted to try Kava for calming effects and Art of Kava
seemed to be high quality. Found it has no effect on me
even with double dose brewing.

Hey Jeff,

Thanks for giving our kava a try!

If this is your first time with kava there are a few things that will effect your experience.
Kava effects different people differently and some experience reverse tolerance.
Reverse tolerance means that you're more tolerant in the beginning and over time you become less tolerant of the effects.

There are also variables in preparation that can effect your experience. Kava isn't prepared like a tea
And the kavalactones have to be pulled out, etc.

If you would like, please connect with us so we can help me your kava experience much better!
