How to use it?
Traditional Method: Insert a desired amount of kava inside the bag. Place the strainer containing the kava powder into an empty bowl. Next, pour warm water directly into the bag with the kava (make sure the powder stays inside!). Let this sit in the bowl for a few minutes to loosen the tougher fibres. Twist the top of your kava strainer closed and gently press out all the excess air. Begin kneading the powder that’s inside the bag in the water. Alternate kneading the bag in the bowl and twisting it to strain all the water out. After a few minutes your water should turn brown/grey and should start feelign a bit oily. Knead for a few more minutes (10 minutes in total) and then squeeze the bag to remove all water from the root particles while not letting any actual root into your ready beverage.
Blender method: Place the desired amount of kava into your blender. Add cold water at 1:15-20 ratio (1 gram of kava powder to 15-20ml of water depending on your preference). Blend on high for 3-4 minutes. You may add a teaspoon of coconut oil which might help to extract fat soluble kavalactones. Once you finish blending it, pour the mixture into your strainer bag and strain/squeeze the kava into a clean bowl. Wait until it cools down or add a couple of ice cubes and enjoy.
