Kava filter

a.k.a the grog cloth.

kava filter

available commercially

Had I not seen it myself I would never have believed it. When I was growing up our grog cloth used to be a piece of material torn off my mum’s sari!

For those of you who weren’t born in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, kava (we call it grog) is part of the everyday life in the islands. Everything you ever wanted to know, and some things you really didn’t need to, can be found on that wiki page. Or on this impressively-named website! Anyway, long-story short, it needs to be made with a cloth that’s quite fine so it isn’t all gritty.

I gotta hand it to whoever did the packaging for this product. It speaks to the consumer. What more could you ask for?

Multi-functional? Ya sure, why not? Use it to filter all those nasty floating bits outta your cooking oil. But make sure you read that fine print so you don’t use the same filter for kava and oil.

Also, is it just me or is the colour of that kava disturbing? Maybe it’s because it was made in a waterfall. Or maybe the original product was supposed to be a giant teabag. Who knows?
