Drinking Kava
Drinking kava is woven into Fijian society, with kava ceremonies holding great importance. You might encounter a simple ceremony in a shop or informal hotel gathering, but bigger ceremonies are part of social, political, and religious life. Kava is a root, which is ground or pounded, then mixed with water and strained through what might look like a sock. Beautiful carved wooden kava bowls are a great souvenir. Kava tastes a bit nasty, and will leave your tongue tingling and your mood relaxed—but you've got to try it, at least once.
