About Us

The Tribe Story

The story of Tribe began with Paul Colbert, the owner, who had a transformative experience with Kratom after suffering a neck injury. Desperately searching for an alternative to pain relief, he was recommended the plant-based alternative, kratom, which led him to discover kava bars. Intrigued, he visited various bars throughout the United States, deepening his interest in the kava bar scene.

During this time, Paul traveled to Tulum, Mexico, where he was captivated by the local architecture and design. This experience sparked an idea in Paul's mind - to create a space where people could relax and enjoy the effects of both kava and kratom in a Tulum-inspired environment.

From this idea, Tribe Tea House & Kava Bar was born. Today, it has become more than just a concept. It has grown into two full-scale kava bars offering plant-based alternatives behind the bar, while providing a space for people to come together, share ideas, and work towards their goals in both Kenneth City and Largo, Florida.
