Kava Kava, ‘awa, ‘ava, yagona, sakau, methystine pepper (Piper methysticum) are just a few names by which this unique plant is known. For over 3000 years, the people of the Pacific Ocean islands have been using its properties in healing, rituals and social gatherings. The culture of drinking Kava has already left its native islands: Vanuatu, Tonga, Micronesia, Fiji, Samoa, French Polynesia, Hawaii and is conquering the whole world.
Kava belongs to the pepper family. The adult plant is a shrub reaching up to 4.5 m in height, with large, heart-shaped leaves. Although it develops male and female flowers, seed setting is very rare. Kava is most often bred in a vegetative way, which means that the offspring are genetically identical to the parent organism. This allows our growers to maintain a continuous quality of crops, thanks to which the Kavaha brand can be proud of the highest quality of its products.
