Kinkéliba Tea

The tea at my future job is made from the seed pods of the Kinkéliba plant. Here is a close up of the seeds. The seeds are roasted and ground before being put into tea bags. The tea is used as a traditional medicine to treat malaria. OACP has a patent on the tea and has exclusive rights to its production and distribution in 15 countries in West Africa.
