Australians are developing a taste for kava and enjoying the culture around the Fijians who introduced it to them.
Since the Australian Government allowed the commercial importation of kava from 1 January 2022, kava is now readily available for those wishing to have ‘a mix’.
Bannockburn, Victoria resident, Tyson Cawood enjoys swiping kava with his predominately Fijian mates including other Wantok friends.
Cawood says when drinking with the Fijians, he likes the culture and the traditional way they serve and respect kava.
Melbourne resident, Brendan O’Keefe says kava was a great alcohol when watching a great game.
O’Keefe adds kava has been a blessing in his world, helping him wind down at the end of a hard day and as an alcohol alternative in social settings.
He was also glad that the Australian Government approved the sale of kava once again in the country.
The Melbourne resident says he immediately began researching and trying many of the kava blends and single cultivars and landed on Lami Kava as his go-to kava.
Former Fiji resident now residing in Sydney, Aneesh Singh explained he was born in Fiji and respected the Fijian traditional drink of kava, as well as the culture and enjoyed drinking it in harmony.
Lami Kava is the official Kava of the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua.
