be some Vanuatu "Tudei kava"

Since the origin farmers and communities have done a kava selection testing from the wild plant they found. The selection was done once they tested the kava upon the effects was pleasant and effective. Once the kava was giving the expected results it was adopted and domesticated by duplicating its cuttings. Through Melanesian customs, these cuttings were shared among the nearly communities. It is through this process during several centuries that the various Noble varieties flourish in Vanuatu Islands.
This has been a long period of testing and we thank our elders for having perpetuate their best cultivar selection while focusing on a strong physiological effect.
Indeed, depending of the Nations the selection has not been conducted from the same way. Fijian Kava has been selected too during the same period Vanuatu did work on getting a strong physiological kava effects. Fijian Kava is meant to be drunk at any time of the day, from morning or at any moment to be served as a pleasant refreshment.
