Description

Harvested by the Nyul Nyul people of Western Australia, this relaxing golden bush tea has a herby, earthy taste. Traditionally consumed at evening time, Jilungin Dreaming Tea has a relaxing effect and helps send you off to sleep. After a cup or two of this you’re likely to sleep deeply…and have a few interesting dreams while you’re at it! Bruno & Cynthia picking Jilungin Marion (the partner of Nyul Nyul tribal elder Bruno) told us that “Bruno’s grandmothers used to drink Jilungin. He remembers them boiling herbs and teas in Bailer Shells over the fire. These are very big shells found on the reefs in Nyul Nyul country. There are about 3 varieties of Jilungin and I picked the strongest small leaf variety. It works like a tonic on the body as it alkalizes the system, gives us energy during daylight and wonderful sleeps at night… For Loving Earth we harvest the long leaf variety which is a lovely golden colour. There has been some results for people who suffer from insomnia and migraine headaches. We sun-dry the tea on our roof in big bags, it’s a wooden platform which is also our viewing deck for star-gazing at night. It is oil based and doesn’t lose potency in the drying process. We put stem & bark into the mix so that people experience all the plant’s properties. We find the more we drink it the more we love it and it can be reused over and over at least up to 8 times. We put about 2 grams to a cup or 5 grams to a pot and keep refilling it. It is a Terminalia, same as the Gubinge tree and only grows in the top end of Australia. It has the same flowers as the Gubinge but bears a small flat seed without any edible fruit.” All profits from this product go to the Nyul Nyul, who are the custodians of the land where Jilungin grows: the beautiful Twin Lakes area of the Kimberley region.

Nyul Nyul Wildharvested Gubinge (The Kimberley version of the Kakadu Plum) – the world’s highest natural souce of vitamin C. Bruno (Winawaal) is bringing back the traditional ways of taking care of the land, to restore the amazing bushland on the Dampier Peninsula.
