This “tea” is extremely strong and I don’t like to give negative reviews but, on first taste this tea is as artificial as the bag it comes in. Please do not waste your money on a memory that is not there. First off Sassafras is banned in the USA, so you are not getting anything natural. The flavor is awful and it’s fake sweet, and such a bad after taste. I put the tea on a Styrofoam plate.
This is what happened. The choice is yours.
Till next Tea….
