Kava is pleasant. I've had someone say they thought it had a slight taste of licorice but I severely disagree so, I suppose it just depends on the person's taste sensitivities and what other ingredients are being mixed with it. I think it's nice. It's one of the only teas I don't feel the need to add stevia to to actually enjoy.
I drink the Yogi brand. I took this from their website:
"Yogiís Kava Stress Relief tea combines this relaxing herb with Cinnamon and Sarsaparilla to add warmth and spice, and Carob Pod for rich flavor.
