About Us

Zac Holzapfel

Art of Kava is a kava importer retailer and wholesaler based in Jacksonville, Florida. Our kava is carefully selected directly from growers, each one offering a unique story.

In 2019 Zac started to learn about kava. Actively joining social media groups and delving deep feet first into the world of kava. Early 2020, he connected with Isake Kantonibau about buying kava for his tea company. Zac had no idea that Isake was a rugby legend but was impressed by his immense knowledge of the kava industry. So Zac, Isake and his business partner Jessica Kunwar talked about what is important in business, for farmers and for the kava industry as a whole. We all wanted the same thing. Make a living doing what we love and supporting the community around us in any way we can. So we dedicated our business to paying fair prices for kava to help farmers sustain their business and families. To also help people get an herb that could genuinely help them deal with pain, withdraw, and break the cycle of stress, anger and depression to lead better lives.

Smooth but Powerful

The effects are pretty top notch and the taste is smooth. I would describe this as balanced but leaning more towards heavy. It starts out a bit uplifting and then is much more relaxing after an hour or so. It's also one of the more interesting kavas i've tasted with a nice smooth smoky flavor. I think this would be my second favorite kava in the current lineup, and I would order it again if it became available regularly.

Locked on the couch

I had to wait for reverse tolerance to go away, but man did it hit me today!! I picked this up for a alternative to anxiety and stress. Feels like a warm blanket on me, pretty heavy with 4 tbsp. For first time with kava I really enjoy it!

Unique kava with pleasant feeling

This kava definitely makes you feel good and more at ease without making you feel like knocking out. I really enjoyed it.

Just sublime for me

Smooth and not starch heavy so its kneading pretty clean for me but still produces a nice milky bowl. Mellow taste and low nausea from 6 shells on an empty stomach. Effects are balanced as can be for me, begins to linger after shell 2 and i find my sessions with this prolonged because of that. Not to shabby.

Start my day off right

I'm very pleased with my new kava find. Great customer service too! Going to reorder more for sure. Hopefully it's still in stock. 2 giant heaping teaspoons and a good squeeze and I am good to go.
