"we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”

So what exactly IS Kava and Kratom?
Kava and kratom, although different in preparation and taste, can have similar effects on the body. Depending on the strain of choice and your particular body chemistry, you may experience a variety of sensations. Kava has been used for centuries for its ability to calm the neurotransmitter activity in the brain. This can help reduce symptoms of anxiety while also relaxing muscles, and creating a sense of euphoria. Kratom has also been reported to encourage relaxation and euphoria, but is commonly used for pain relief or to increase overall energy.
Drink slow, eat food before hand or enjoy our snacks here, and bring an open mind for our Mad Hatter's culture. You'll often see us raise our shells (what we drink Kava from) and cheer BULA! In Fiji it has many meanings, but it's basically wishing you happiness and good health. You'll also hear us mention that we're "feeling muddy"... that means we are feeling real good from our drink! So come join in on the madness, our knowledgeable staff is here to guide you through your first sip.
