KAVA - Tonga Kava - Royal Tongan Kava Powder (Piper methysticum)
We source our Tonga Kava direct from the roots of plants that are at least 5 years old. Our Tonga Kava is the highest quality, most potent Tonga Kava available in New Zealand. Kava ceremonies are an important way for Tongan men to bond with one another as a forum for communicating with open discussions on a number of social, cultural, and political issues. Known for its uplifting and euphoric effects, Tongan Kava is not as stoney, sleepy or heavy as Fiji Waka Grade Kava, making it more suited to socializing rather than kicking back in front of net-flicks. Try it as an alternative to alcohol at your next get together.
Ethnobotanical History: Kava is a member of the pepper family (Piperaceae), and has been enjoyed by the people of the South Pacific, for more than 3000 years. First brought to the West by Captain James Cook, it became known as the "intoxicating pepper". Kava may induce sociability, feelings of peace and harmony, and in large doses can be very sedative and euphoric, which is why it has long been considered an aphrodisiac.
Usage: Kava is best consumed in the evening. For a basic brew, Kava can be placed into a strainer bag and mixed with cold water in a large bowl. Approx 3 liters water to 100gram Kava.
For a more potent brew, blend up 50 gram Kava, 1 cup milk, 2 cups water and 2 tablespoons Lecithin granules. Filter through muslin or cheese cloth. Add optional chocolate flavor to taste
