What is Kava?


Kava is a plant originating from the South Pacific Islands such as Hawaii, Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu, Fiji Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands, and other minor Pacific Islands. Enjoying the effects of a beverage made from the root of the tropical plant (Piper methysticum) is common practice in the South Pacific and has been used for ceremonial and social occasions for over 3000 years. It is a 100% natural and non-alcoholic beverage.


Where do we source our kava?


We sustainably and ethically source our kava from Vava'u, Tonga.



What does kava taste like?


It's common knowledge among kava drinkers that kava does not taste good. “We drink it for the effect, not the taste” is the common phrase since kava is notorious for having an unpleasant bitter, earthy taste. BUT, here at Pila Kava, we discovered a magical process that removes ALL unpleasant tastes and just leaves you with an absolutely delicious drink that makes you feel oh so happy. Don't believe us? Check out our testimonials on our social media platforms or better yet, experience one of our drinks for yourself. 


What are the effects of kava?


Kava has a slight numbing effect on your tongue upon drinking it. As it flows through your body you'll start to feel relaxed as it has a 3,000 year history of use as a safe and effective way to promote a state of mental wellbeing that is accompanied by physical relaxation. Expect to experience a relaxed state of pure happiness.


Do you have an age requirement?
