Kava Root Powder is used to make a variety of drinks and teas for use in social environments that promote calmness and relaxation.
The root comes from a plant called Piper Methysticum, a shrub with heart shaped leaves only found in parts of Fiji, other Pacific Island nations, and Hawaii.
The process of creating kava tea is simple, mix powder with water, massage and mix thoroughly for approximately 5 minutes, then strain the powder through a mesh to leave you with the Kavalactone rich water.
Many people mix Kava with water using a blender to speed up the process and make it less labor intensive.
Getting Started with Micronized Kava
Micronized Kava preparation is a little different than the traditional kava drink, because the powder is so fine, it nearly fully dissolves in the water, creating a much stronger drink and less cleanup. Kava itself is not water soluble, but the powder being so fine and micronized allows it to stay suspended in the water without having a large amount of Kava powder settle at the bottom, and nearly unnoticeable when drinking.
