The serrated leaves of the Blackheart Sassafras tree have a sarsaparilla-like scent that when chewed are said to give you ‘a bit of a kick’.

In times past, the cinnamon scented bark has been used to brew an alcohol-free ale named Tanglefoot, which is rumoured to have induced vivid dreams and drunkenness among West Coast pub goers who indulged a little too much.
