Kavasseur’s Top Choice

Since 2009, I have been reviewing and ranking Kavas based on headiness, body, and taste. Below is my all-time best Kava list.

This also acts as a “beginner’s guide” to the best Kavas available. My decades of Kava drinking has informed this list, and I stand by these Kavas as the strongest available on the market!

*Note: I am still not endorsing any Kava vendors who are part of the True Kava consortium. Please read my blog entries and view videos for more information.
