Kinkeliba is a shrub species often found in tiger bush and on hills in West Africa. Studies of the plant have revealed significant properties to support weight control, anti-aging, and aid in the purification of the body.* The leaves of this traditional bush tea yield a rich golden infusion with a refreshing, mildly nutty flavor. When Kinkeliba was discovered by the colonists and Arabs, it became the favorite infusion of the missionaries and military. They called it “la tisane de longue vie” ~Infusion of long life.
Why do we call the herbal tea Seh~haw? Seh~haw is the mystic name of the leaf. Ancestors and the Holy Man Father Bamba, a well-known Sufi guide from Senegal, emphasized that calling the leaf by its mystic name seh~haw will unlock even more properties to heal your body. Ancestors would whisper their health concern when enjoying a cup of Seh~haw.
