Kava is the official national drink of Fiji where it is called both Yaqona and Malogu. Yaqona, which means bitter, refers to the bitter, earthy taste of kava and Malogu, which means subdue, references the calming effects of a drink of kava.
Kava is a small shrub grown in the Pacific islands, mainly Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga, and Hawaii. Centuries ago the islanders discovered its’ relaxation properties, found a way to prepare and consume it and started to drink it at social and religious ceremonies and for medicinal purposes. Drink kava for social relaxation, to reduce mild anxiety and body tension, or to help you get a good night’s sleep. Drinking kava is one of the most natural ways to relax the mind and body.
Shortly after Fiji gained its independence from the United Kingdom in 1970, social changes inspired Fijians to open the kava ceremony up to everyone, and Fijians happily share it with tourists. In the South Pacific, kava is a popular social drink, similar to alcohol in Western societies.
