From Townshend's Tea Company

Drink a whole pot of this máte, lapacho and kava root concoction and it may leave you feeling slightly altered. We also sell it by the ounce.

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!

Backlog:

I ordered this tea out of pure curiosity. I’m glad this tea doesn’t smell the way I thought it might smell, it has an earthy scent and I note a minty undertone. The brewed tea smells vegetative and earthy.

This isn’t so bad. It has an earthy taste (from the Yerba Mate) but it’s not overly earthy. There is some sweetness to it and a warmth that tastes like a cross between ginger and cinnamon. Peppery like ginger, sweet/spiced tone of cinnamon. Pleasant.

The Kava gives it a hint of grassiness, and while I’m not usually particularly crazy about Kava, I’m not minding it here.

Not bad. Better served hot than chilled.

It’s still delicious and satisfying, but the tea got ground up a bit on the trip home and there was a lot of sediment.
