Hopefully, you now have a bag of high quality kava root ground powder or root pieces.  Having a teapot with an included infuser is very helpful since the kava root can be gorund into a fine powder.  If you do not have an infuser, it would be wise to invest in a strainer so no large pieces of the root get into your tea, which can ruin the pleasant experience of drinking this tea. This recipe is delicious hot or cold, making it a great year-round drink. Due to the slightly bitter taste of kava, I include sugar and cinnamon in the recipe.

Ingredients (2 servings)

  • Ground Kava Root (6 tablespoons)
  • Water (16 oz.)
  • Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon)
  • Sugar (2 tablespoons)
  • Ground Cinnamon (1 tablespoon)


  1. Pour Water into herbal teapot.  Place teapot on range with medium heat and bring to a low boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low.  Add remaining ingredients including kava root powder (or ground kava root),  vanilla extract, sugar, and ground cinnamon to the infuser section of your teapot.
  3. Simmer the ingredients for ~ 10 minutes (longer for stronger tea)
  4. Remove your teapot from heat and turn off range.   Allow teapot to cool for ~ 5 minutes to avoid burning yourself.
  5. Pour tea into teacups and add extra sugar if desired.  Stir to help mix evenly.
  6. Congrats, you have completed the kava tea recipe, and it is ready to consume!

    1. I definitely recommend trying it. Go slow the first time, kava can be pretty strong depending on the strain you purchase!
