An Introduction to Kava Waka

An Introduction to Kava Waka

Kava tea is a drink originating from the Pacific Islands. It is prepared using the roots of the Piper methysticum plant, a member of the pepper family. These roots are crushed into a fine powder and then combined with water to be drunk.

The plant is native to the Pacific islands and has long been used as part of cultural ceremonies. Taking kava affects the brain and central nervous system and is associated with an elevated mood and feelings of euphoria and relaxation.

If you’re looking to try kava in Australia, you’re in luck, as it’s becoming more and more accessible. At The Bong Shop, we’re proud to offer premium Kava Waka straight from Fiji. So, if you’re looking to buy kava online, you’ve come to the right place!

How to Prepare Kava

When you buy kava, it will usually come as a dry powder, but you can’t use it just like you would regular tea. There are many ways to prepare kava, but we recommend starting off with the traditional method.

Begin by measuring out your kava powder. It’s up to you how much you would like to use but we recommend starting with 10 grams per person.

Next, place your kava powder in a strainer bag or cloth, and place this into a bowl.

Then, add hot (not boiling) or room temperature water into the bowl with your kava. The less water you add, the more potent your kava tea will be, so it’s all about your personal preference. We recommend starting with 50 ml of water for every 10 grams of kava you are using. 

Let your kava sit in the water for 5 minutes so it can absorb the water.

Following this, spend a few minutes squeezing and kneading your kava in the water. If your kava is in a cloth, take care that none spills out. Throughout this process, the water should gradually become darker and take on a brown tone. Your kava tea is now ready for drinking!

Once you’ve tried the traditional method, there are a variety of other methods you can use to prepare kava tea. The great thing about our premium Kava Waka is that it includes an easy reference guide on the back of the packaging.

Why Choose Kava?

As it has become more accessible in Australia, kava has gained popularity as a natural way to treat stress and anxiety. Studies have shown that consuming kava can help to remove these negative feelings and improve your overall mood.

Furthermore, kava is a great way to kick back and relax with some friends, just like you would with a bong. Kava is something everyone should try! If you’re interested, premium Kava Waka is available now, at The Bong Shop.
