Herbs???

I can't remember what herbs I can't have while pregnant. (I don't think I am, but just in case). I had a book my sister lent me last time, but now she's preggers again and has it.
I love this Tazo Passion tea- drink it all the time. I know it has hibiscus and passion flower...
Hope I can still drink it! Does anyone know what the no-no's are?

    blue cohosh, black cohosh, penny-royal leaf, yarrow, goldenseal, feverfew, psyllium seed, mug-wort, comfrey coltsfoot, juniper, rude, tansy, cottonroot bark, large amounts of sage, senna, cascara sagrada, buckthorn, fern, slippery elm and squaw vine.
