Kava culture first made its apperance in South Florida during the 2000s and it has expanded to other regions including San Francisco. The first time I tried kava it was a unique experience and it is bitter at first sip. However, many people have claimed that kava helps them relax the body. They use it as a strees relief and mood elevation elixir.
As mentioned on Tiki Tide Kava's website, "Kava comes from Piper Methysticum, a pepper bush native to the South Pacific." According to their website, Kava tea has many beneficial factors and is a good alternative to alcoholic beverages.
