The Tripple S Tonic as it was called consisted of Sweetbirch, Spicebush and Sassafrass. Each of these plants has its own individual excellent flavors and benefits but when combined together the tea was marketed as having the ability to cure just about every ailment known and rejuvenate health to a level of childhood play. Combining twigs from sweetbirch (betula lenta) and spicebush (Lindera benzoin) and the root of sassafrass (Sassafrass albidum) the tea has a flavor that includes notes of fruity, spicy, sweet and fresh.
