Kava - The Story of the Root
What is Kava? (Awa, Ava, Yaqona)......Great question!
First let’s start with where you’ll find this amazing root and plant. Let's travel to the South Pacific.
Although legends vary depending where you are in the South Pacific in the Kingdom of Tonga where our kava root is sourced the legend of the famous root is named in honor of the girl named Kava in which the very plant is derived from. The root in which the kava plant is cultivated for is widely used in social gatherings and for medicinal purposes in various islands throughout the South Pacific.
Our kava is sourced from the beautiful island of Tofua, which is a caldera, formed by the explosion of an ancient volcano. This island of Tofua is part of the Ha’apai Group that are a part of the Kingdom of Tonga. As a volcanic island, the soil makes for perfect conditions in growing premium made kava.
