It’s been over 3 years since we’ve added Kava Tea to our beverage line up at the Sawgrass and it continues to be popular, despite the initial period of getting used to an organic tea with an earthy & crude taste. Just like at other Kava Bar’s, the tea is gaining popularity because of its calming effects, as well as properties such as:
*Slight Numbing of Mouth, Lips & Tongue
* Cheerful Mood
*Immediate & Long-Term Anti-Anxiety Effects
In addition to the above highlights, Kava has some other interesting features, noticed by drinkers and backed by studies in the Lab at the University of Queensland in Australia. First, it’s non-addictive and has no tolerance build-up. In fact, most experience a kind of reverse tolerance, in that the more Kava you drink, the less it takes to get to the desirable effects. Improved focus and other cognitive effects have been noted, and a more restful sleep, in which the user wakes up more stimulated than normally would be the case.
So, to summarize, here’s a natural tea used by island Tribes and peoples of Micronesia, Polynesia & Melanesia for the last 3,000 years that serves as a cultural bond for weddings, special events and as a daily tonic. You can expect, in varying degrees depending on how much and how often you use Kava, to experience calmness, clear-thinking, a sense of well-being, a pleasant mild numbing feeling in the mouth, a more relaxed mind and body, as well as a more sociable, open attitude.
Sounds pretty cool, huh? No wonder our Customers have decided to come back again and again to enjoy one of 3-4 varieties of Kava Tea of varying strength. We choose the Island nation of Vanuatu as our main source of dry Kava root from which to cold-press our hand-made Kava Tea. We also provide dry Kava in 1/4 Kilo’s, weighed out at time of purchase, so folks can make their own tea at home and save money too.
If you haven’t been by to try Kava, pluck up your nerve to get ready for an earthy taste, and expect to experience more benefits, from less Kava Tea, each visit that you have a few (Coconut) shells or bowls. And if you like what you’re experiencing, take some home with you for yourself or someone you know could use it’s anti-anxiety, relaxing attributes.
G’Day to ya!
