About this Kava:

We sourced this 100% Noble lateral and basal root mix (70%/30%) kava from the island of Ambae in Vanuatu. This high quality, single cultivar, noble Kava is selected from the MeloMelo variety is grown on the island of Ambae. 

Melomelo has been purposefully cultivated for centuries to both concentrate the kavain and increasing the desirable effects.

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 basal 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. 

Batch 1 CHEMOTYPE: 246531


About the Farmer:

We source this kava from a Farmer in Vanuatu. Farmer 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.  The farming communities our agent workds with 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 farmers because they have 1. Provide the absolute best quality kava available in Vanuatu (not even kidding here). 2. We 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. Therefor our relationships with these communities are rock solid and we receive the best available kava. We can't wait for you to try it.


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 balanced cultivar that leans heavy with mild euphoria. This is one you can keep drinking all night. Art of Kava has continually impressed me with the quality and quantity of their selections. Thanks again!

One of the best?

I'd have to say this is hands down one of my favorites. Super strong in my opinion. I get a slight numbness but not as much as some others that I've tried. Taste isn't that bad either. But I drink kratom daily so it's kinda hard for me to judge. Give it a try
