The Pacific Island nation did not have alcohol unit the arrival of European explorers. In order to have a blissful feeling and to communicate with their gods, they drank a cool potion made from the crushed root of the Kava plant, Piper Methysticum. The plant and the drink were used by farmers, fisherman, canoe carvers and those doing all sorts of hard labor to relax, cut anxiety, and pain relief in the evenings. It was also a time to talk story, plan the next day, and enjoy the fellowship of family and neighbors. Following this, a good night sleep was often assured.

Kava was and still is used to mark the beginning of any important ceremony throughout the South Pacific. In this ceremony, strict protocols are observed, and woe to anyone who misbehaves. A modification of these protocols usually took place when Kava was used socially. This includes a prayer over the Kava bowl plus the handclap routine. Kava is drunk from a half-shell coconut cup, and in many societies, the cup is a personal one and no one else drinks from it. In other groups people share a common cup. Families have special bowls, which are used only for Kava. These bowls sometimes have names and are passed down from generation.

Instead of a bottle of wine, a bundle of kava roots is the preferred gift to your host or the chief whose village you may wish to enter.

Wow-Wee Maui’s Kava Bar is one of the first to offer powdered Kava, the social drink on Maui. We have a web site to order from at The fresh organic root, which contains the greatest percentage of the kava lactones, is available from Maui Kava, Fiji, and Tonga.
