Temo Purple Kava Single Cultivar | Solomon Islands

Exemplary Hybrid

Artofkava has hit it out of the park with this most recent cultivar. A nice nutty flavor with notes of pepper, the powder smelled of green tea and very fresh.

Dominative in Kawain and Dihydrokawain reaching around 6% total it provides a largely stimulative effect for me. Effects begin immediately with a feeling of calming and all the stress melting away. Stimulative and anxiolytic effects merged for about 1hr post ingestion, dominated experience wise by Yangonin and Kawain. Post 1hr, Mesthysticin and Dihydromethysticin make themselves known giving a nice sedation and anastetic like effect to finish it off. Following main effects which lasted 1:30-2hr, a calmness persisted for an additional 4-6 hours.

Out of ten, Purple Temotu by Artofkava receives....


My favorite kava so far

I've been a kava drinker for a decade & daily drinker for the past 3 years. I've tried most strains of the big vendors & have a few favorites.
This is my favorite kava. I went through a pound in record time & made a second, recurring order.

A truly special kava.

I have made kava from many different vendors, different islands, different cultivars. This is hands down one of the more potent and effective kavas, and it has a very smooth and approachable taste which makes it perfect for the Karuna Kava style of brewing.

Dokobana is our favorite!!

We absolutely love the Dokobana waka. It’s so smooth. The feeling is so wonderful after a couple cups. Makes us all happy. I have family get togethers and we all enjoy it. This is our go to blend.
