rare varietal in a traditional medium grind

This is a unique kava that I can break out into a whole sonnet about, but should probably let you experience it for yourself. I do not recommend drinking this kava before bed as our teams mind was going wild and most of us couldn't sleep. We named it "wakea" after the god of the sky and light, as the experience reminded us of a light awakening within us. It's.. curious, to say the least.

On the tongue this kava is quiet delicious. It is a sweet wheatgrass with a cucumber juice back. Effects are more on the heady side, but expansive in creativity. we recommend it for daytime or pre-evening time

This kava comes from a single plant and was processed raw with the fresh green juice squeezed from its roots, then processed immediately with a proprietary temperature controlled dehydration process to conserve the flavors of the fresh juice

drinkroot's single-origin instant kava series starts with a careful selection of premium harvests from one location. This may be a hand picked blend of multiple plants on the farm or all of the roots from a single reserved plant. Every amalgamated batch of roots first undergoes a strict QC analysis to ensure premium kavalactone characteristics and content to match your desired experience profile.

The proprietary blend is then carefully brewed and homogenized in a closed temperature controlled environment with warm filtered water to mimic traditional brew methods. After juice is pressed it is rapidly dehydrated so it can be immediately added to any liquid without any filtering needed!

No bark.
No fillers.
No micronized roots.
Pure kava.
