Tasting Notes: Smooth, Potent, Balanced 

Bir Kar (Red Kava) is a single cultivar noble variety. A nice deep brown powder. The smell has little to no earth, a bit of pine and notes of nut butter. A finer powder but not micronized.

Prep: 32g to 20oz water, blended for 4 minutes, strained and consumed. During blending the kava presented as a deep brown. Upon opening the blender a nice nutty scent, a hint of earth and pine. Slight mouth numb and smooth going down. Creamy nut butter notes.

Effects began right away.  Immediate stress and anxiety relief with increased talkativeness.

Very nice muscle relaxing effects and euphoric feeling without much sedative effects. As time goes on the muscle relaxation increases and it turns a bit sedative. 

Full effects lasted about 2 and a half hours and increased quite a bit during that period. Lingering mellow effects lasted just about the rest of the day.

This is a kava to drink when you're not planning to go anywhere for awhile but have fun where you are.

Everyone's tolerance is different. Because of reverse tolerance, I may have a faster, lasting experience. We can have different experiences! Please let us know how it worked for you. So if it hasn't worked for you yet, try it again. If you have any questions at all, please reach out on our Instagram or Facebook page.

 About this Kava:

Bir Kar is a very rare kava not found anywhere else in the world but Espiritu Santo. The Bir Kar kava plant is difficult to grow and it is very popular at the local Nakamals. As you can imagine, the locals keep the best for themselves so a lot of it stays on the island. Farmers also reserve this kava for special events and celebrations. No doubt, not just because of the extremely potent effects, but how the effects really loosen the mood, uplifts spirits and entices conversation.

We sourced this 100% Noble lateral and basil root mix (70%/30%) kava from the island of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu. This high quality, single cultivar, noble Kava is selected from the Bir Kar variety of kava plants at least 4 years in age, that have been grown on the island of Espiritu Santo.

Noble Lateral Root Kava powder, is derived from the smaller roots that extend from the main root-stock. These roots are higher in Kavalactones.

The basil root or stump is the root ball base of the kava plant peeled and cut into chips before pounding. This typically has a different chemotype than the lateral roots, is milder in kavalactons and more creamy in texture.

About the Farmer:

We source this kava from a middleman in Vanuatu. Middlemen Are vital to the supply chain in all of the South Pacific Islands. Many times the best quality kava comes from a community deep in the jungle or on an island that takes 12 hours to get to. These middlemen create relationships with these farmers. The farming communities our vendor sources from tend to not have very much technology at all and live a very different life than we do. Most or all of the income they receive in the year comes from the sale of this kava. We connected with this specific middleman because they have 1. Cultivated relationships with people that provide the absolute best quality kava available in Vanuatu (not even kidding here). 2. They make it a point to pay the farmers a fair price for their kava. Undercutting people doing hard work for a great product is just not in their playbook and we want to be a part of that team. We hope you do too!

Our vendor selects the best kava from farmers in  Central and Southern parts of the island. 

 Directions:

Made as single serving: 50g in 20oz water. Blended for 4 min, strained. 

Made by the gallon: 100 to 130g. 1 gallon of room temperature water in a large bowl, bucket or a traditional tanoa bowl. Add water to the vessel. Add kava to a nut bag or cheese cloth and dip the bag into the water. Massage for about 15 to 20 minutes or until you've reached your desired potency. This will yield a much weaker kava for the purpose of sharing multiple cups with friends in longer sessions. Serve in coconut shells, glasses or store in a gallon jug chilled. Shake jug before serving. 

Note: Add 20% of the gallon of water or 4oz in your single serving of 20oz as coconut milk for a tastier end result.

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.

Very pleased...

I love this kava. Having said this, I found at the bottom of the bag, mixed with the kava, about a dozen small different sizes white stuff, shaped like eggs. There not eggs. They are filled with kava. What are these?

Hey Chris! Thanks for reaching out and answering our reply with pics to this for more info. This kava is packed in bricks and when it's blended it has to be broken up. Sometimes those stay in clumps or balls. When you make your kava tho they'll mix like normal. Apologies for the confusion and super glad they're not eggs haha!

Smooth

Really mild and enjoyable kava! Not so heavy but still able to enjoy all the mental benefits kava brings!

Love Kelai Heady Kava

Love Kelai Heady Kava - Just what I needed with my daily Kratom dosing, monthly subscriber from now on, recommend cold 2% milk with chocolate Nesquik mix for chugging, otherwise nauseated feeling for me

Awesome!

Definitely one of the stronger ones iv tried from here! I enjoyed it, it’s definitely a late evening relax mode type kava. Made me feel super happy and relaxed.

Goodbye anxiety

Works wonder for melting the stress of an anxiety ridden workday. Highly recommend!
