Sassafras Tea

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Non-Alcoholic Beverages

    4.00 Average-sized sassafras
    1.00 ga Water

You can gather the roots for sassafras tea anytime of year, but the roots should be young and tender. Chop the young roots from the tree and wash them in cold water. Scrape off the outer layer of bark. The bark can also be used to make tea, but the roots are better. They can be used dry or green. Bring the roots to a boil in water. The longer they boil, the stronger the tea. To make a gallon, boil 4 average-sized roots in a gallon of water for 15-20 minutes. Strain and drink hot or iced, sweetened with sugar or honey.
