Cut & Sifted
Indian Sarsaparilla is a South Asian species of shrub that grows throughout most of India. Our sassafras root bark is obtained from Sassafras albidum, a species of tree native to eastern North America also grown as an ornamental elsewhere. While the wood is sometimes used in furniture making, and the essential oil of the fruit as fragrance and flavoring, sassafras root bark is traditionally used in tea blends.
Please note that our sassafras root does contain safrole, it is a natural part of the plant.
