We are passionate in our love for Kava. As such, we wish to ensure that everyone in Tanunda and the rest of the Barossa Valley and South Australia has access to the finest kava available.

Australians in particular have taken to this traditional drink, for a variety of reasons:

They enjoy the health benefits such as reducing their dependence on alcohol, reducing anxiety, easing stress and improving sleep;

Additionally, there is the growing sober curiosity factor in our society, that is, seeking viable alternatives to alcohol and drugs while still wanting something that’s a “feel-good” option;

Given that kava is 100% organic (no fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides are used in its cultivations), it doesn’t give you an alcohol-type hangover the following morning.

The Pacific Islanders Influence

What you may not know is that there is also a large population of Pacific Islanders in this country. Kava is the cornerstone of Pacific Islander tradition and whilst an acquired taste, it helps connect Islander-Australians with their cultural identity.

Moreover, because the drink is not alcohol, it is a lot less harmful than other substances that are readily available in Australia, whilst also providing some health benefits for drinkers. 

Pacific Islanders are often asked – “Why do you drink it?” The reality is that it’s really important to their culture. It is the way they connect and interact when they drink kava that is really good for mental health. In fact, the drinking of kava is well-recognised as a great social tonic.

As a side note, Kava is sometimes used as a treatment for insomnia, stress and anxiety.

Kava Bars in Australia

In the U.S.A, the number of kava bars can be counted in the hundreds. That’s because it’s a relatively mature industry, compared to Australia. The number of kava bars in Australia amount to a handful – so far.

We have no doubt that this situation will change. The drinking of kava in Australia is escalating at a rate that can only be described as phenomenal. As the demand for it grows, so will the proliferation of kava bars in Australia.

Kava Varieties Available

Parasul Kava Babies by Joseph Brun at Bruns Kava There are many varieties of kava available in Australia, and you can find them all at Buy Kava Australia. The noble variety strains such as Borogu, Melo Melo and Kelai are the most popular and well-known strains of kava that come from Vanuatu. This type of kava has a milder taste than other varieties, making it ideal for those who haven’t tried kava before or who don’t like strong flavors.

However, for those who enjoy a heavy kava, you can’t go past the King of Fiji Kava – Waka Kava.

Our newest addition to our premium kava range is from Tonga. Tongan Kava at its finest!

When you buy Tongan kava, you want the best – yes? Well then, this is the one – Moana Premium Kava from the Tongan island of Vauva’u. Wonderfully creamy and smooth, it will certainly delight the senses with its high-level heady potency.

Noble kavas are typically used for ceremonial purposes because they’re easier on your stomach than other types of kavas. They’re grown organically in Tonga,Vanuatu and Fiji by small-lot farmers who follow traditional methods to ensure their product meets high standards for quality control.

You can buy noble strains online through us here at Buy Kava Australia!

There are many kava recipes available for making cocktails and smoothies that include kava powder and Instant Kava powder as an ingredient.

How to make kava using a blender How to Make Kava

Kava is a traditional Polynesian drink made from the root of the kava plant, Piper methysticum. For centuries, it’s been used  as an important part of social and cultural ceremonies in Fiji, Vanuatu, Tonga and other Pacific islands.

Kava can be made in many different ways but there are two main methods: modern or traditional. The traditional method involves crushing dried roots with stones or wooden mallets before adding water (or coconut milk) and straining through a cloth bag called a ‘ti’ or ‘iti’. This process produces a cloudy liquid that many prefer to drink straight away because it contains less sediment than the filtered version produced by modern methods which involve grinding up dried roots into powder form before mixing them with cold water then filtering out any remaining debris using cheesecloth or muslin cloths held over sieves lined with fine metal mesh filters such as tea strainers. Our “How to Prepare Kava” blog post covers every aspect of successfully preparing your kava drink.

Of course, no discussion would be complete without pointing out some of the key benefits of preparing and drinking Instant Kava:

  • It’s quick and easy to make – simply put into a shaker or glass then stir and drink! Takes about 10 seconds to prepare!
  • You only need a half teaspoon per serve
  • Great for traveling – take it with you anywhere!
  • Made from pure green kava juice – not just micronised powder!

Drinking Kava in Australia Kava Etiquette

As the popularity of kava grows, so does the number of people who want to try it. If you’re new to Kava and don’t know how to use it properly, here are some tips for getting started:

  • Don’t drink too much. While there is no maximum amount of kava that should be consumed at once, it’s best not to drink more than one or two shells (cups) per day. Drinking too much can cause nausea and vomiting as well as dizziness in some individuals.
  • Don’t mix Kava with alcohol or other drugs. Quality kava should be consumed as a stand-alone drink for maximum benefit.
  • When drinking kava, as per the traditional rules of the nakamals in Vanuatu, kava is best taken in quiet surroundings with low lighting.
