More about Kinkeliba Tea:
In Senegal, Kinkeliba (Seh-Haw in Wolof) is the most popular of the bush teas. But despite amazing healing properties and higher antioxidant levels than Green tea, it’s not widely known outside West Africa.
The leaves of this shrub – when dried and boiled – produce a strong, earthy-tasting tea which is mineral-rich and caffeine-free.
t’s drunk all year round but is especially popular during the colder months, and is used by Muslims to break the fast during Ramadan.
A non-exhaustive list of Kinkeliba’s health benefits would go something like this:
- aids liver disorders, sleep problems,
- digestion, skin complaints such as eczema and acne (due to anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties),
- general convalescence after illness,
- detoxification, and can be applied during the final rinse to strengthen dry and brittle hair. If that wasn’t enough, research suggests it may be beneficial in the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes.
No wonder Kinkeliba is said to have mystical properties and is referred to as “tisane de longue vie” or infusion of long life.
