Good product but it is not Organic- Liver warning is over blown

First of all the liver warning on the back is just a CYA for the company. Kava root is very safe for moderate to infrequent use. The issues have arisen when the aerial parts of the plant are use or if large doses of the root are consumed daily for 8 or more weeks. Sure, if you have liver damage you may want to avoid it as you would alcohol and most NSAIDs. Herbal teas that are pre packaged and bagged like this are typically weaker and of lower quality than what you would get at an herb shop or purchased directly from a herb farm. So you need to keep this in perspective. I have found yogi teas to be of very good quality for the class they are in. My biggest disappointment with this tea is that it is not organic or wild harvested. Some of their teas are. I do like the taste and the convenience of a bag sometimes is nice. For a relaxation effect use 2 or 3 bags and steep covered for 15 minutes or longer. If you found this review helpful kindly visit my Iherb homepage for move value added reviews.

Tea elskere av kanel, en utpreget smak, veldig eksotiske, godt å drikke i kaldt vær.

Have not tested the product because it contains gluten.

Not my cup of tea. I got drowsy.

I haven't been able to feel any relaxing effect from this. But I've only tried it twice, the first time with two bags and it was overwhelming in smell and taste. I'm sort of put off by the memory of that, and can't bring myself to try it again - I opened a bag but I put it back into the box ...
