Established in 2019, we are a family run business passionate about kava/ava/awa.
Todd and 'Anau are not only passionate about drinking kava but also sharing the benefits of kava for one's hauora (wellbeing).
We acknowledge that this dream is a result of ancestors who have dreamed before us and navigated to new horizons, which has enable us to be where we are today - sharing kava with the world.
The wife of the duo, 'Anau, grew up in a traditional Tongan family that migrated to Aotearoa in 1982. As immigrants, 'Anau's family turned to what they knew best to survive - kava. Her father planted, grew, harvested and processed kava in Tonga to sell in Aotearoa and provide for his family.
Todd and 'Anau are proud to have now extended the story of 'Anau's parents and their passion for kava to now owning and operating Tamakai Makaurau city's first dedicated kava lounge.
