Lightbulb Kava Kava

I've been thinking about different things to put in my base lately, and suddenly it hit me. Kava tea! If kava can promote stress relief and relaxation as well as its famous for, why not put some tea in the base of a hookah for an extra relaxing session? The kava tea I've had has a creamy cinnamon taste, so I have to think of something that will pair well with it..I'm thinkin' vanilla or orange AF. What are your thoughts, hookah pro?

I have tried a lot of different things and various teas. For the most part it is better to just go with water and drink the tea with a complimenting flavor. that way if the flavor does come through and it is not a good combo you just don't have to stop the session.

Tastes like dirt to me. But it's very fun to drink.

It's not so bad where I get it from, but yeah I've heard it tastes like crap a lot of the time. I'm just looking for a different feel in the buzz for a long session, and I know kava isn't your every-day tea, so it could be an interesting experiment.

there is a difference between kava tea and the natural way to drink kava. the tea is nice and sweet while the drink is dirty root mixed in water. yum. just thought i would share that little bit of info.

Yeah, it's supposed to be pretty nasty drinking it the traditional way. I might mix a little ground root in with the tea and just deal with it, hoping the shisha might overpower it. Just a pinch. I also plan to use more than one packet of tea.
