at last!

great stuff! thanks for carrying it. strangely enough, my web searches for sassafras kept bring up either sarsaparilla, or very small amounts of sassafras at hight prices.

Just like I Remember

I have been looking for this particular tea for years!! I had almost reached a point where I just thought I'd never find it. Then while once again searching... I just happened to find the Prairie Edge website...and I looked on the here and wallah!!!! There it was the Sassafras Bark!!! I could NOT believe it!! Oh how it reminds me of the many years ago when I first got introduced to this tea. The smell & taste bring back wonderful memories surrounding how I enjoyed it, with family members who are no longer with me. I'm so excited that I found it and I will definitely be purchasing it again!
