- Kava Ceremony Yaqona is Fiji's national drink made from the powdered root of the pepper tree. It is prepared and offered in a social ritual known as the kava ceremony. Commonly served to visitors to welcome then as honored guests at local villages as well as resorts, it is also used to seal treaties, close business deals and christen babies. To try this very popular hand-mixed beverage, request a "low tide" or small serving. If you are feeling enthusiastic, asking for a "high tide" will get you a full cup - to be downed in one go. And you will certainly be invited to stay for more rounds of drinks until the tanoa bowl is empty. Although, kava is non-alcoholic with a mild flavor, it does leave a slight tingling on the tongue. Over the years, I have participated in this ceremony many times in many locations throughout Fiji. Personally, I think it is an acquired taste. Video is from the Royal Davui Resort off Fiji's Coral Coast. For more information, go to
