Kava by gchild, April 22, 2010
Just finished listing to this show. Thought I'd let you know your DOTW caller was incorrect about Kava. Kava is not from the Taro plant, which is a starchy root vegetable. Kava is root plant that is not normally used for food consumption. Kava is not fermented and does not produce alcohol. The roots of the Kava plant are ground up and dried, then steeped in water producing a brown, cloudy almost mud like water. You drink the cloudy water. It basically taste like you think it would, earthy, dirty, rooty. I wouldn't say it produces an intoxicating effect on you. It's has more of a relaxing, calming effect. It also numbs the lips, mouth and gums.

I'm really curious to know the connection Drew says there is between Kava and American Cereal mashes. It might be the earthy, woody taste. It basically taste like your drinking out of a puddle of mud if you have it in it's traditional form. It is an awesome relaxer....maybe Justin should try some for his back. I grew up in Hawaii and surfed a lot around the Pacific and drank a lot of the stuff.

Hope this helps and if you get a chance to get more clarification from Drew that would be awesome.
