When you buy kava online from this page at Nakamal At Home you will receive one 250g bag of Epik Kava Puariki root powder complete with a batch number. This is a single Chemotype or single cultivar kava root powder. This kava Chemotype is known as Puariki kava. Puariki kava is grown on the island of Tongoa in Vanuatu. Puariki kava is a revered variety of kava. The majority of the Puariki kava that has been grown never gets further than the kava bars in Vanuatu as a single cultivar based beverage. Tongoa island is very small and supply is limited for this cultivar. We likely won’t weigh out any more once this batch is gone until we receive another shipment. It is worth more to be sold in a kava bar and Jeffrey Bowman has been drinking it every night since it arrived so our supply is going fast.  Puariki kava is known for its mild nutty taste, creaminess and balanced, euphoric effects. In the context of the word "Puariki," its meaning holds significance within the local culture of the region. In the Bislama language spoken in Vanuatu, "Puariki" translates to "big brother" or "elder brother." This name represents the respect and reverence attributed to the Puariki kava variety, highlighting its esteemed status in local traditions and the high regard in which it is held within the community.
