From Oregon Yerba Mate

A calming blend for the nervous system consisting of yerba maté, lavender, chamomile, jasmine and kava kava. Relaxes muscles without making you drowsy. Less bitter than traditional mate with a floral finish.

DO NOT DRINK THIS TEA if you have or have had liver problems, frequently use alcoholic beverages, or are taking any medications.

Kava came under the FDA’s scrutiny after a number of European reports that it might cause damage to the liver – including hepatitis, cirrhosis, and liver failure. German & Swiss health authorities have identified approximately 30 such cases, including four cases requiring transplantation, and one death. As a result, regulatory agencies in Germany, Switzerland, France, Canada, & the U.K., have taken actions ranging from warning consumers about the potential risks of kava use, to removing kava-containing products from the marketplace. In the U.S., FDA has received several reports of kava-related liver damage, including a report of a previously healthy young woman who required a liver transplant. Although the incidence appears to be rare, FDA believes consumers should be informed of potential risks.

Kava is ranked among the top 10 herbs sold in the United States and Europe. In a double-blind clinical study testing Kava’s reputed stress relieving properties, Kava was proven not to relieve anxiety more than the placebo (study conducted in 2005 by the University of California: San Francisco). Conclusion: There’s no reason to risk your liver in the hope that you’ll be less stressed out. Drink a different tea!

Described as an evening Mate tea with Kava Kava, Chamemile, and Lavendar. My thoughts follow:

-Smells predominantly like Kava
-Tastes a lot like Kava with mate undertones
-Balances both very well
-Accidently left this bag in car (very hot) which makes smell funky (beware)
-Very smooth and tasty
-Kava hint is awesome
-Relaxed after all the mate I had sampled
-Kind of funky with honey though.
-LOVED THIS IDEA AND EXECUTION. As a Kava drinker myself, Oregon Yerba Mate did a great job introducing Kava to mate without leaving one or the other out.
