Tasting Notes: Leans Heavy
This kava is strong and potent. When you open the bag you will be met with that earthy, peppery smell you know and love. Creates a dark, oily brew. When tasted it will numb your mouth. We experienced near immediate effects from this one and lasted about an hour and a half.
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:
We sourced this 100% Noble waka kava from the island of Kadavu in Fiji. This high quality noble Kava is selected from plants at least 5 years in age that have been organically grown on the island of Kadavu.
The Fijian WAKA (100% Lateral Root) Kava powder, is derived from the smaller roots that extend from the main root-stock. These roots are higher in Kavalactones.

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.
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.
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.
Shipped and arrived within two days, great stuff mouth numb and then off to the clouds. Bula
Tried this with my friend and it was a lovely, positive experience. Completely relaxed our muscles and helped with our anxious thoughts.
Excellent customer service and good communication from the owner.
Excellent kava, would definitely buy again.
