Default Tea?

Any guides are suggestions for naturally occurring tea sources in Midwestern US? I know pine needles are a frequently used source but what species are best? Are there other plants? I have tried dandelion tea and its OK as far as flavor but I would prefer to avoid the diuretic effects.

I tried white pine tea from my trees. Supposed to be loaded with vitamin C.
It actually tasted pretty good.

Red raspberry is rather tart, and if your water is too hot it gets really bitter. You might check the ones mentioned here before consuming since they do have medicinal properties that might not agree with you or the commercial meds you're taking.

My Mullein seeds I ordered should be in my mailbox by now. Going to plant them in the side yard out of the way to if they will grow around here. The therapeutic stuff that plant is capable of is amazing. I finally figured out that is what my Grandfather must have smoked for his asthma. I never met the man as he passed away before I was born, but dad said he was prescribed a tobacco to smoke for his asthma, which I thought was crazy, because tobacco is supposed to be bad for your lungs.

Then just here in the last couple weeks read that mullein is also called Indian Tobacco and is smoked for asthma. Mystery solved 50 years after hearing the story. The grandfather was born somewhere around 1880. Starting to sound like a long time ago.
