Hi, in the meantime I found out the issue.
It's a really silly thing, but no tutorial ever explains that while we use PHPUnit for testing, the tests should NOT extend the PHPUnit TestCase class but the one provided by Laravel (\Tests\TestCase).

For some reason, that small, but extremely important piece of information is never mentioned in the articles, Youtube videos, etc. I have seen. That's something people are expected to know.

I didn't. That was the issue. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
