Why would this tea be bad for pregnancy?

I just bought a new tea last night at WF.  It's Yogi brand "Detox" tea.  It sounded just like what I needed after the holiday gluttony-fest.  While having my first cup this morning I looked at the back and it says "WARNING: Not to be used during pregnancy or while nursing."  While I am neither pregnant nor nursing I still asked myself, what can be so bad in this tea to warrent this warning?  Maybe it's something well known, but having never been pregnant I was never advised against it.  Here are the ingredients:

Indian Sarsaparilla Root
Organic Cinnamon Bark
Organic Ginger Root
Licorice Root
Burdock Root
Organic Dandelion Root
Organic Cardamom Seed
Organic Clove Bud
Organic Black Pepper
Juniper Berry Extract
Long Pepper Berry
Chinese Amur Cork Tree Bark
Japanese Honeysuckle Flower
Forsythia Fruit
Gardenia Flower
Skullcap Root
Black Cohosh Root
Rhubarb Root
Wax Gourd
Asian Psyllium Seed

If it's bad during pregnancy, wouldn't it be bad otherwise?  Am I just ignorant?  ???
