Unlike many of the teas on our menu, Kava No. 65’s largest selling point isn’t its flavor — rather, it’s the tea’s effects.
Frankly, Kava No. 65 has a generally unremarkable taste, with an extremely earthy, woody base flavor that’s underpinned by a somewhat subdued bitterness. While this may not make you jump to try it, the tea’s taste isn’t why people love it; rather, it’s the relaxing effect that the beverage imbues. Many people experience a numbing of the tongue while drinking Kava, which can be alarming if you aren't expecting it!
*As Kava Root's active ingredients, kavalactones, are not water-soluble, this tea will be strongest when it is kneaded in an infuser. Pushing a spoon against the Kava in the infuser (while it's in the liquid), will make for a stronger brew. We recommend using 2tsp per 8oz water.*
The woody, slightly bitter taste of Kava makes for an excellent addition to a chai latte — just sayin'.
