Kava, the ancient tea of the Pacific Islands, is growing in popularity across the U.S. A centuries-old tradition, it promotes feelings of relaxation, focus, and happiness. A tea made with the ground root of the kava plant, its earthy taste can often be too strong for many tastes.
Fortunately, Kavahana, the first kava-only bar in Los Angeles, is transforming the experience into a delicious and tasty treat. We blend 100 % natural kava tea, with delicious ingredients such as oat milk, brown sugar, matcha, coconut, and rose to create a variety of delicious rotating flavors. A wonderful base for creativity, our tea flavor options are a hit with customers who love to try something new.
Where does kava come from?
This traditional tea originates in the Pacific islands. The native people brewed it during social events, ceremonies, special occasions, and spiritual rituals. By drying and grinding the roots of the kava plant and brewing it with water, this ancient tea brings feelings of happiness, relaxation, and social confidence to stressed and overwhelmed people across the world.
The earthiness of traditional kava
Traditionally, the native people of the Pacific islands make their tea by brewing the natural ground kava root purely with water. This creates a tea with a very peppery taste that many people find a little earthy for their liking.
We love the ancient culture around this amazing tea and we offer this traditional style of tea for our experienced kava drinkers and fans of this old method.

Does the experience come with hangover regret?
Unlike alcohol, kava does not create the hangover symptoms that have so many people regretting their weekends and slowly moving away from booze in their social life. Instead, it creates feelings of happiness and social confidence, without the same impairments as alcohol, creating calm and happy feelings without the same level of unpredictability as alcoholic drinks.
With a growing number of sober-curious people moving away from alcohol but still wanting to feel social, relaxed, and happy in their off time, kava bars are a chill alternative at any time of day.
