I hadn't seen it before and haven't since - I think it was just a one off from a seller that sells all sorts of stuff, they probably just brought it back from a holiday! I searched for "Fiji waka" and just got lucky..

@AaronCobra How did the Amazon order go? Did it make it through Customs? I'm hovering over making another Amazon purchase....

as 2 months ago morison lifted it for imports
Nope. He merely announced a consultation on the potential for lifting it maybe this year.
The only thing that has changed us that it is now legal to bring 4kgs instead of 2 when you travel

Effervescent kava tablets:


Available in Aus if anyone's interested. It says on that page they use only water extracted noble kava, which is promising!

Bad news:

Updates on proposed changes to the import of kava
Due to the impact of Covid-19 the revised implementation date will be 2021. Further targeted consultation will commence once travel restrictions and the impact of Covid-19 have eased.

Also:

8 July 2020
NOTE: The Department recognises that travel restrictions arising from COVID-19 has impacted the ability to obtain kava for personal use. Unfortunately temporary measures to allow the import of kava by mail are not possible as such channels would require legislative changes and significant consultation with Australian State and Territory Governments. With the prioritised focus on COVID-19 such consultations are not available at this time.

Meanwhile, from the ACT government website:

Kava supply and consumption is now permitted in the ACT and is no longer restricted to public events. Kava may now be consumed as a food in the ACT if it is:

  • a beverage made from dissolving kava root using cold water only and not using any organic solvent; or
  • dried or raw kava root.
