The formulation of kava-kava was developed by George Forster in 1777. Johann Georg Adam Forster was a German naturalist, ethnologist, travel writer, journalist, and revolutionary. He connected his father, who was a famous naturalist too, on many scientific adventures, one of them being the second Pacific voyage of Captain James Cook. According to George Forster, “the kava juice is extracted from the roots of a kind of pepper-tree. The roots are first made into pieces and then are chewed by people who later spew out the pulp into a bowl containing coconut or cold water. After this, the mix is filtered through the coconut fibers and then emptied into a separate bowl for consumption.”
Traditionally, kava was made by cutting the root or rootlets into small pieces, being chewed by several people (often children or beautiful young women, because of their realized reduced bacterial levels!) and spat into a bowl, where it was mixed with coconut milk. It was believed that the chewing procedure blended the root with enzymes in the saliva and promoted the extraction of the active ingredients of the root and generally produced a much tastier brew.
