Have y’all ever had Kava Kava tea? I’ve only had it from tea bags, but I got some pretty decent, pure Kava root ones from Celebration Herbals that seem like decent homemade approximations of what real legit kava drinks must be like.
It’s pretty great stuff! Imagine the gentle inverse of caffeine, a clearly felt psychoactive “buzz” that presents a slight calming and anxiety-reducing effect at about the same strength as caffeine’s upper effect. Plus it weirdly numbs your tongue and tastes weird but kinda good.
I really want to try legit traditional kava kava beverages, but there are no kava bars in my area. For whatever reason, there seem to be more kava bars in Florida than any other part of the US. When I visit Sarasota for the holidays, I’m going to check out the city’s first one, which just opened recently.
