What’s The Best Way To Drink Kava?

Three Ways To Make A Kava Drink

Micronized Powder

Micronized is a great kava powder that dissolves quickly and easily. Add it to your favorite beverage and stir it - it'll dissolve instantly, no grinding or straining required. And because the particles are so fine, you'll get a smooth, rich cup of kava without any grit or graininess.

If you want to enjoy a traditional kava ceremony, this isn't the powder for you - micronized kava doesn't produce the same thick, creamy head as ennobled kava does. But if you're looking for an easy way to enjoy kava's unique flavor and relaxation-inducing effects, micronized kava powder is a great choice.

Traditional Ground Kava

Here are some tips for making traditional ground kava:

  1. Start with fresh, mature kava roots. These can be sourced from online retailers or specialty stores.
  2. Cut the roots into small pieces.
  3. Grind them into a fine powder via a blender.
  4. Mix the powder with water and let it sit for 30 minutes so the active ingredients dissolve.
  5. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer to remove any remaining solids.
  6. Serve the kava over ice or mix it with fruit juice or coconut milk for a delicious, refreshing drink.

Following these steps, you can make authentic ground kava that is perfect for enjoying on a hot summer day or sharing with friends at your next party.

Traditional Kava

Making kava the traditional way is a lengthy process that can take up to several hours. First, the kava root must be shredded or pounded into a fine powder. The powder is then placed in a strainer bag and steeped in water for 30 minutes. After the kava has been strained, it is typically consumed immediately.

However, if you’re looking for a quicker method, a blender works well. Place the kava powder and water into the blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes. The kava will have a slightly different taste when made in a blender, but it will still be just as effective. Whether you make kava the traditional way or in a blender, you’re sure to enjoy its relaxation properties.
