kava kava

plant overview
pepper of the pacific

Kava, or kava kava, is a flowering shrub native to the Pacific Islands that is also known as Intoxicating Pepper and Ava Pepper. It is, in fact, a member of the Piperaceae family, which means it’s related to black pepper. In Polynesia, the fresh root is traditionally blended with pure water or coconut milk and consumed prior to attending religious ceremonies. The powdered root is added to teas, tonics and other beverages, often in combination with other herbs and spices to improve flavor.
