Sassafras root harvested. Next is cleaning, drying, and then tea time! For those who are unaware, sassafras tea tastes similar to a mild root beer. Mmmmmmm
You do have to be careful though, the safrole content in the roots can be bad for your liver if you harvest the plant at the improper time of the year when the safrole content is concentrated more, or if you use the aerial portions of the plant as opposed to the root, and if you steep it too strongly.
