Melomelo Vanuatu Kava

This moderately heavy Vanuatu kava is very aptly named… it’s mellow! In smaller servings it is very good for easing anxious thoughts and stress without making you feel sedated. In larger serving sizes it comes on heavier and is good for completely winding down or helping with sleep.

Melomelo is very popular with locals and in Kava Bars (Nakamals)  in Vanuatu— usually leaving very little available for export! After years of searching, we were really excited when we finally found a source. It was worth the wait. We purchase straight from the farm, so freshness is guaranteed.


Vanuatu Kava Root Powder straight from the farm in Ambae.

We purchase this Nakamal-style Kava straight from the farm so freshness is guaranteed. Grown on Ambae Island in Vanuatu and usually reserved only for the domestic drinking market because it is a very popular local variety. After years of searching, we were happy to secure a source. It's a very relaxing, or mellow if you will, kava that we're sure you'll thoroughly enjoy.

Melomelo kava relaxation effects can be a little deceptive at first. With not a lot of headiness, you could be fooled into thinking this Nakamal-style kava is tame when it is not. After two shells the mental and body relaxation effects really kick in.  Everything will seem right in the world again as you experience inner calm and peacefulness and your mood shifts to mellow.

Effects: Heavy (Moderately)

Melomelo kava is an interesting and special variety in our heavy kava varieties line-up.

    Probably my favorite kwk variety. Melomelo is the perfect name because it describes the effects perfectly. One shell is all it takes to feel relaxed. Kwk varieties also have the best taste out of all the kava brands I’ve tried.

    I took one TBSP of Borogu prior to making a traditional batch approximately 2.5 TBSP of MeloMelo. About 30 minutes to an hour later I had mild euphoria and my mood was great. A few hours later it did get a bit heavy with an almost intoxicated feel and mild nausea that was rectified with a meal. Very good kava strain.

    It is very well balanced, but more on the heavy side. What I really like is it has a very mild heady effect that doesn’t leave you feeling loopy with brainfog after a heavy session. You feel very….well, mello. 🙂 By far my favorite. The taste does take a little getting used to (not like anyone drinks kava for the taste). It has more of a lemon/pine flavor to it than other kava’s in KWK’s line up. This stuff will help you unwind and make you feel like you don’t have a care in the world. Highly recommended! I can see why it is so popular.
