@poupou Roobio? Maybe? I have that from not-celestial seasonings. It’s OK. Now, sassafras, or birch bark, thems appeals to my Hoosierness. – 05:50 AM GMT

“animals … given oral doses of sassafras tea or sassafras oil that contained large doses of safrole developed permanent liver damage …” – 06:03 AM GMT

This ban, for the chemical safrole, included tea from 1960 to 1994, yet I have strong childhood memories of sassafras tea. Huh. – 06:07 AM GMT
