Janice Nooooooo ... dandelions can be eaten in salads, and apparently make decent home wine, but it looks VERY dif'rent. Don't think it makes tea & I don't think anyone thinks of it as a herb. You'll recognise the herb when I reveal it's name!

Here's a picture I took of the net of flower, leaves and root of a dandelion:

Leaves(?) look very similar, but the flowers are more like a daisy, while my plant(s) only have the yellow center. One thing fer certain, Bryan has made tea with this & it did taste like ....

I don't know sassafras ... again, I googled an image - seems to have broad leaves - and I think it's a tree, so no, not sassafras

Was gonna give a third hint, but I'm comin up with a blank - tea's without caffeine, but I guess that's true of all herbal teas
