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.

Wasn’t what it said it was

Followed directions. Felt lied to. Nothing like description

Bir Kar

I'm really enjoying this kava, as the other review noted, it's pretty balanced, but also potent. It's got a nice mood lift, as well as nice heavy effects. Puts a smile on my face and melts my anxiety away, as well as loosening my muscles and helping me sleep.

The taste of the Bir Kar is a little less appetizing than something like the koro island, but it's all kava, so it's kind of expected that it's not going to taste good.

Highly recommend this one if you're looking for something strong and balanced.

Well rounded kava

Very pleasant, nice n warm mid day to night cap kava. Good stuff

First time trying Kava

Very impressed, wonderful taste and feel. Strong mouth numbing before a light sense of euphoria and sedation, but you won't lose motor control. I've enjoyed it every time, although the preparation is something to get used to.

Glad youre loving the kadavu! Yeah the prep process is a bit to get used to for sure. You can also make a large batch and freeze it in ice cube trays. They hold 16oz so its great for portioning and the effects dont degrade while frozen.

Nice mild kava

Mild taste and mild, smooth effect. Leaned towards heady but left me tired after a few hours. Good effect all around though not as potent as others I’ve had.

Hey Scott! Thanks for the review! Glad you liked the Dokobana! Yah, the intention of bringing this one on was to have a more mild kava than the more potent ones on the roster.
