Kava or 'awa' is a Polynesian root used as an herb for its muscle relaxant chemicals. Often used to entice friendly negotiations or relaxed atmospheres.
The effects are very mild and last 10-15 minutes. It starts with a tingle in your lips. Next, you simply forget what you were stressed about and focus on what's around you.
Anyone who has had Kava knows it tastes like mud. Combined with chocolate, we did a good job masking the Kava flavor and it tastes very similar to our 90% dark bar.
