Try our Stone Kava if you feel the need to, well, turn to stone. This kava product was named to honor the age old tradition of grinding kava root down to a fine powder by using stones. This type of Vanuatu kava powder is 100% lateral root and is very strong. Most users of this product report that it makes them very sleepy. We buy only Borogu varieties of kava in Vanuatu and this kava is surely of that species. Borogu species of kava are the most popular amongst the natives in Vanuatu. Try some today and you will see why.
POTENCY- VERY HIGH
TASTE- Bitter. Peppery. Pine-like. Not the easiest kava to drink.
White Sand kava is the name we have given to white kava from Vanuatu. The larger pieces of kava root are called chips. This kava is 100% chips so it is light in color and still plenty potent. The kava bar market in New Caledonia buys nothing but this type of kava. Same for the Australian market. This kava has less root bark in it which imparts a bitter taste to the kava. Chips are easier to skin than lateral roots. This is a great starter kava. It can be make a stronger grog by adding more kava to the water before squeezing.
POTENCY- A little less than HIGH
TASTE- About as mild tasting as kava comes.
Buy Papua New Guinea kava from the most knowledgeable supplier in the world. We have been importing PNG kava since 2002. In that time we have learned a tremendous amount. For example, there are more varieties of kava in PNG than anywhere else save Vanuatu. One thing is for certain, the strongest kava in the world that is able to be imported into the United States comes from PNG. There are currently no restrictions on types of species that are allowed to be exported from PNG. More potent kava may exist in Vanuatu but it is illegal to export it and you will never, ever see it unless you travel all the way there. We currently sell 2 types of kava from PNG, Chiefs Jungle Kava and Niugini kava.
Chief's Jungle Kava
Chief's Jungle kava is amongst the strongest kava that we have ever found and been able to import. This kava from the Madang area of PNG. We do our best to import 5 yr old + roots specifically from the variety the natives call Madang Short or Waeld Koniak (wild cognac). This kava has a brownish/reddish hue to it in whole root form. The aroma is of ginger and pine. The taste is very pungent and the effects are out of this world. This is not the best choice for inexperienced kava drinkers but that doesn't seem to stop them from ordering it.
POTENCY- MAXIMUM. For Weekend Use
TASTE- Pine. Ginger. Pungent. Not the easiest kava to drink.
Our instant kava is phenomenal. We take fresh, green kava juice in the Republic of Vanuatu and dehydrate it. The powder that is left behind is then ground down into fine powder and voila- instant kava. Everyone has heard of instant coffee and tea right? Then the concept of instant kava should not be hard to grasp. We now have 2 types of instant kava for sale here, Fire Island and Shaman.
Fire Island Instant Kava
This instant kava is made from Boroguru kava. We hand select fresh, green kava stumps from plants that are 5 years old plus upon harvest. We squeeze the juice from the roots immediately after harvest and dehydrate it. The residue that is left is instant kava once we micronize it. This type of instant kava is perfect for kava newbies.
Shaman Instant Kava
Our Shaman instant kava is the most potent instant kava on the market. This is very special kava. We cherry pick the most mature lateral roots from the heaps of fresh, green kava that are delivered to the factory almst every day. We use only the juice from these roots and dehydrate it. This powder is then micronized and vaccuum sealed immediately to lock in the freshness. This product should be used by people who have experience with kava.

These kava bowls that we sell are authentic. We import the coconut shells from the south Pacific so they are ultra authentic. Each one of these kava bowls is handmade by an indigenous Melenesian, most likely by using a machete. These kava bowls are then sealed by using an FDA approved sealer so that they can be steralized each time. Drinking kava out of anything other than a coconut shell kava bowl is like drinking fine wine out of a soup bowl. Buy one of these kava bowls today to start your bonafide kava adventure.
KAVA PREPARATION CLOTH
A kava preparation cloth is neccesary to make kava properly. Many people use other things to strain kava juice but our nylon kava preparation cloths are by far the best option available. We recommend using 2 cloths at time to increase the strength of the cloth so it does not tear when you are wringing out the kava.
Soy lecithin granules really help to help you feel the effects of the kava. It is not totally neccesary to use these granules if you do not want to but we are sure that using them makes the kava more potent. The oily properties of the lecithin granules activates the kavalactones (active ingredients) and makes them more readily available to your body. They also emulsify the kava juice so that it is smoother and homogenous.

The yerba mate plant is a small tree native to the subtropical highlands of southern Brazil, northern Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay. It is a member of the holly family, Ilex paraguariensis. The Guarani and Quechua peoples of the region have been drinking infusions of yerba mate since pre-Columbian times. According to their traditions, it is the gift of a benevolent god.
Across southern South America, yerba mate tea is more popular than coffee and black tea. From the gaucho cowboys of the Argentine pampas to university students in Santiago, yerba mate tea is the beverage of choice for stimulation, nutrition, and social gatherings. It has recently gained popularity in Europe, Asia, and North America as a healthy alternative to coffee and Chinese tea.
Nakamal At Home Yerba Mate Viva Tea is a unique blend of 5 varieites of the finest yerba mate imported directly from South America. We only use yerba mate that is free of stems and seeds to give a smooth taste to the consumer with no possible risk to the liver from alkaloids found in the bark.
