Another hot-weather, no-brains-required, lawn-mowing buddy. My favorite regular root beer is Barq’s … this is Barq’s without the bite. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)
First iced tea of the season necessitated by the first push mow of the season. Got half our big backyard done and I’m limp—vegetation so thick the blade felt like it was caught in wet spaghetti. Welcome to Missouri. There was still snow on the ground last week.
At any rate, this is quick-no steep time whatsoever; in with the cold water and boom! there you go. Root beery goodness. We can find this in local grocery stores; I wonder if it gets scarcer the farther east and west you go.
If Granny Clampett looked me over, I ‘spect she’d tell me I had a miz’ry that needed tonickin’. This’ll do. Nice and root-beery, warm. All I need is a jug :) Zero steep time; 2 tablespoons in with your water and great hoppin’ horny-toads! there you go.
Was toting around a colossal headache all day yesterday. A nice sit-down and a cuppa this, hot, did much to alleviate it. Officially, “headache tonic” isn’t on the cure-all list for sassafrass (benefits lean more toward detox and anti-inflammatory), but whatever it did, it did me good.
Best part — shot of two tablespoons in a cup, no waiting, no steep time! I was seriously craving this; another tea treat I associate with early spring. Unsweet root beer for those of you who are unfamiliar with the base ingredient.
Since I have a whole bottle (minus last night’s splash) I wonder what this would mix well with. Hmmm…
On ice. Nice!
Yummy memories of childhood in this cup. When I was a lil’ kid in the hills n’ hollows of western Pennsylvania we’d dig sassafras roots in the spring after the new leaves appeared. Wash em’ up and cut into shorts. Boil awhile and hot cups of yummy tea. Didn’t know about the safrole back then, but didn’t drink enough to really matter. Pappy’s is good stuff, hot with truvia. Enjoying some right now.
Well I’m not crazy about it, but I was curious. I do very very much enjoy anything slightly sassafrass-y and this makes a respectable tea. I haven’t tried it hot, but if you make it cold you have to make it much stronger.
There are those who would say tea concentrate is sacrilege, but you just can’t beat this one for good ol’fashioned Ozark mountain sentimentality. Flat unsweet root beer, that’s all there is to it, and since I think root beer is often way too sweet, this is great. A tablespoon or so in a hot cuppa; or about double strength iced.
