The 7 Mile Café & Kava Bar is a green and sustainably sourced café that offers barista-style coffee drinks, gluten-free and CBD-oil-infused pastries and kava tea, a traditional ceremonial Polynesian drink, according to owner Ricky Barr.
“It relaxes you,” Barr said of kava tea. “It’s been around for more than 600 years. It’s a natural herb that relieves tension and everyday stress.”
The mildly bitter tea — likened to an “earthy” cup of coffee — is also said to boost the immune system, promote sleep, increase dopamine levels in the brain, reduce inflammation and relieve aches, according to Barr.
