How To Make Delicious Sassafras Tea

  1. Place 1 bundle roots in one quart of water, and bring to a boil for 5 minutes.

  2. You can now strain the tea, and drink as you like it.

  3. To make a second batch, lightly bruise roots with the back a knife to release oils, and full flavor.

  4. Then, place roots back in a quart of fresh, new water.

  5. Place cover back on pot, and boil for an additional 10-15 minutes.

  6. You can now strain the tea, and drink this second batch.

  7. If you want a third batch, add another quart of water to the roots and re-boil for 30-45 minutes.

  8. For each batch, most people add clover honey (or maple syrup, stevia, or sugar) to lightly sweeten tea.

  9. Remember, the tea is also delicious unsweetened, and hot or cold!
