As I was delivering some products to Paris Shopping Duty Free shop in Port Vila, I stumbled across a new product produced in Australia 🇦🇺 using Vanuatu Kava.
Nice packaging, clear indications.. was intrigued as I had never heard of it before..
Ingrid Festa gave me two tablets for me to try. The owner told me that her daughter tried it and that it was good as she could drink and wasn’t inclined to spit, as it is often the case with fresh kava in Vanuatu 🇻🇺.
In the afternoon, as we were testing the “American “ kava , we decided to have a go at this one too😂😂😂
The kava tablet boiled in the shell, giving a yellowish foam on top of the shell 😬😬
Taste is special- nothing like kava, and rather strange , but maybe because we were (naively) expecting to get a drink very similar to fresh kava.
I am not sure that it will appeal to our seasoned kava drinkers, but it may appeal to new customers: easy to prepare anywhere etc..
It is great to see innovation like this. This is how we are going to touch a wider base of consumers and kava lovers ❤️👍.
