About Muddy Water

The Guys With The Muddy Vision.

mw-about-founders

Muddy Water Kava & Tea was established in 2016 with the intent of bringing a unique atmosphere and sense of community to St. Petersburg.  At Muddy Water, we promote positive vibes and positive attitudes while diligently serving the freshest kava, coffee, tea and organic botanicals on the market.

About the boys: Bryan discovered kava early on while he was searching for ways to relax and unwind naturally. He started bringing his long time friend Kevin with him on these rooted endeavors across Florida (and even some out of state trips, too!) After frequenting bars all over and falling in love with the comfort, acceptance, and charisma of the kava community, these two St. Pete natives dreamed up an inclusive addition of their own they made into a reality- Muddy Water Kava & Tea.
