My son got this sassafras root several months ago. It was in the basement sitting until a couple weeks ago. He’s been bugging me about making sassafras tea, so I had him go get the root from the basement and
clean it up. We started simmering it. It stayed in the pan for several hours. The house smelled so good! After a while, we decided the tea was finished and poured everyone a hot cup of tea.
It was so good!
We got about a gallon of sassafras tea from that one root.
