What Is Kava?

Kava is a member species of the pepper plant family (piper methysticum) natively grown in the South Pacific islands. The lateral roots of a mature kava plant aging at least 3-5 years are cultivated, dried, and pounded into a micronized or powder form. Traditionally, kava roots are soaked in water and pulled through a cloth to strain the kava while also activating the kavalactones. This mixture of the dried root with water is commonly just called kava. However, depending on the island or region, kava has several names including awa, ava, kava kava, and in the islands of Fiji, kava is called yaqona.
