Quinquéliba or Kinkéliba, the star of African breakfasts that seduces the world.
Unlike mango trees, lemon trees and other fruit trees that are often planted or colonized by humans, the "Quinquéliba" tree grows at will without human control.
A tropical tree that sits in the forests of Africa, it gives its leaves to anyone who wants. Farmers cut it at will for their personal consumption if they do not sell them in the markets.
It is the morning infusion par excellence of Africans. In African homes, it is boiled to be served hot to the whole family. Often mixed with milk, it is an essential part of breakfast.
Meticulously stored sheets in pouches or branches tied with wires, Quinquéliba is adored for its therapeutic virtues.
